Cleaning the carpet

I know you pervs think I went down on someone this weekend. Sorry to disappoint, but this weekend, I went over to my sister's, borrowed a Rug Doctor carpet shampoo device, and my dad and I cleaned mostly all of the carpets in the entire house this weekend. So if you thought this was a euphemism of me licking someone's pussy, the joke's on you. I almost thought that was going to happen however. I got a call from someone I had messaged early Friday morning, and we talked and she wanted to meet me this weekend. So I asked to meet her Friday evening after I got done seeing my for dinner. She agreed, and the excitement filled me most of the day in anticipation of meeting her. However, around 6PM, she cancelled because one of her friends was in a car accident, and her friend was panicked, so she had to cancel.

And I'll be honest, this person was the one that cancelled the last time when we were supposed to meet. However, this time I have her actual number. So just this morning I just texted her to say good morning. I don't know if we'll actually see each other or not, but I always feel a person needs a second chance, and she actually replied back to my text, so who knows what will happen here. Maybe I'm a sucker. Maybe not. I'm just trying to actually meet someone this time and just see what happens.

Today I'm feeling a little better. I've been going to bed earlier and it's helped a bit with my sleep. And since that happened, my energy, my disposition, my exhaustion, and my mood swings have helped. I'm still not sleeping all the way through the night, but I've been drinking more Gatorade and my leg cramps have lessened. Its the potassium that I've been missing in my diet that was causing my leg cramps. Also I was skipping out on my multi-vitamins and my vitamin D3 pills, and that was causing me to lose energy. I'm back on it now and I feel a lot better and a little more balanced. I know it sounds weird, but when you're in your 40's reaching for 50, you have to adjust to getting older. The energy you lost when you were younger won't return, so you have to look toward finding things to alter and provide a better balance in your diet so you can help keep the energy you have.

Yesterday was a bit of a weird day as well, as while I was cleaning the carpet in the house, I was really thinking of my . Yesterday she went on her trip to Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore to do a 12 day pre-college course for pre-med. She was nervous to go at first, but she arrived safely and now she's starting her first day today. I was excited, but also a bit nervous for her, because I hope she has a good time and that she can learn a lot there as well. I had given her my St. Christopher medal that my grandfather gave me, and I hope it protects her on her trip. I know, some of you are like it's just a hunk of silver and steel, but for me God does mean something to me.

Well, work is calling. I got a lot to do today. Of course, I still have to focus on my mom today, she starts up another round of chemo today. She's still having issues and yesterday was a bad day for her, but I hope the chemo does it's job and helps her out. And it's the start of another work week. I just hope things are quiet and go smoothly this week.

That's all I can hope for. Thanks for reading. Hope you had a better weekend than I did.

Who can you call on to save the day?

Why none other than...

Cramps? I am well familiar with those infernal things. Two main causes are lack of Potassium and dehydration. After a strenuous day at work, or a hard work out at the gym, I start with a banana. It is really cheap, and has many other benefits. Then I usually take a drink from a pickle jar. Pickle juice is like mega gatorade. Something like 4 oz to 6 oz. fairly small. I am so glad that I found out about pickle juice (from reading interviews of NFL players). Since I started that, my cramps interrupting ... active intimate moments ... have drastically decreased.

Second chances are reasonable. Life happens sometimes. I, personally, always allow second chances. At worst, I will feel sad for a few days, then move on. My wife on the other hand, she never gives second chances to those that she has not invested anything emotionally into. Yet she gives second, third, etc chances for crappy people. Which hurts me, as after every time they let her down, she completely falls apart, and I get to pick up her pieces, get her started back to feeling good.

You seem closer to my reaction than my wife’s. So, second chances are good.

I hope the chemo helps your mom, that is definitely no fun.

You are doing good. Remember that.

I knew about banana's but not pickle juice. And as of late I've been having some serious leg cramps, so the Gatorade helped. I might try both to see how that works.

I'm a firm believer in giving someone a second chance. Otherwise I would not be where I am now. But rarely do I give a third chance.

I hope so as well. My mom is not doing well on the chemo and I can see the toll it's taking on her body.

Honestly I want to do bare wood floors myself, but they can be cold in the winter. We had to do everything because the dog keeps marking her territory and some of the areas were high traffic dirt ground into the carpet. Nothing worse than cleaning a dirty carpet.

Although I'd rather be cleaning the carpet in the other way than actually cleaning a carpet.
