This makes me laugh out loud every time I watch it. The best part is the last half where Superman and Batman are having coffee. Heeee-larious!

Well, not really. But I do think there will be always freshly-cleaned carpets in heaven. I mean, I
ask you, is there anything in the world prettier than this? I just love it when the carpet cleaning man comes and takes all the nasty junk out of my carpet. Let's see...this time around, we're talking vomit stains, pee stains (no, I don't have a dog, but I have a difficult 5 year old), blue food coloring, dried-on toothpaste (from the tiny almost-two-year-old who likes to walk around brushing his teeth, then tosses the brush on the floor wherever he happens to finish), milk stains, and oh too many more to mention. I stood at my window and watched the dirty water go through that little see-through container out to the big truck, and I was rather disgusted. I'm surprised the poor guy's machine didn't start coughing and sputtering and smoking and ultimately explode. Dodged the bullet on that one. And why do they have to make that container see-through, anyway? I don't want to see that! Do I really need such a reminder of my less than stellar housekeeping skillz? "Hey lady, look at that! Your water is BLACK! Betcha didn't know your carpets were that dirty, didja?" What-ev-AH.
To even FURTHER make my day, the nice carpet cleaning man gave me my very own bottle of his super duper ultra mega strength magical spot removing solution. I think he could tell how smitten I was when I watched him spray it on the food coloring and vomit stains and they just...poof! disappeared! He doesn't give EVERYONE their own bottle, you know. (I'm pretty sure he was in love with me)
But just look at these beautiful carpet tracks! I need to go now. Wanna go stare at them for a while. HEY! KIDS! Get away from that carpet! You'll mess up the tracks...!!!

ME! I did it! I finished my nursing assistant course. And for everyone who may not be aware, what that means is that I did the following over the course of three short (yet oh, so long) weeks: sat through approximately 30 hours of classroom lecture, spent approximately 50 hours in the trenches of the local nursing home doing hands-on clinicals, took 9 tests and got the highest score in the class on every single one of them, thank you very much (yup, I'm quick to point that out every chance I get), and ended with a 99 on my final exam and a 98 overall for the class. Yup, that's right, the highest in the class. GO ME!!!
This is my pal Wendy. She let me do icky things to her like practice wiping her bottom and swabbing out her mouth and sticking a bedpan under her bum in just the right place. Isn't she a great guinea pig? And dontcha just love the look of horror on her face? I do! That's the face I would see every morning when I walked into the classroom. Gosh, I'll miss ol' Wendy.
Now, I've said this a hundred times and some may even be sick of hearing it, but one more time: THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU to my wonderful friends and family who absolutely made this accomplishment possible for me. When I think about how quickly and unselfishly everyone jumped in to help with...well...everything from kid-sitting to the support I needed to keep from going absolutely mental...let's just say I get a little teary eyed and choked up. Nuff said. I love you all. If any of you ever need your vital signs taken or need help getting to the toilet, you know who to call. I'm here for YOU.
