The weekend has gone by so quickly.
We watched the kids yesterday while Josh and Cyrise went to the river. I went to Mom's alone and vacuumed her living room in preparation for spot cleaning it today. I got her a Little Green Machine for pet spots. She forgets to take Teddy out as often as she should, which results in pee spots on the carpet.
Ron used the machine on a few spots last week, and I got up most of the rest of them today. I'm really pleased with how well it works. Some of the spots were pretty old, and her carpet is light colored, but it took most of them out. I'm going to borrow the machine to clean some spots on my carpet.
Mom never wants to sit by and relax when someone is cleaning. She wanted to help. It made her shoulders sore, but she was so happy. I was watching her as she sat on the carpet and cleaned some spots and it reminded me of how she was when we were growing up. She always worked so hard, and took pleasure in keeping her house clean and neat. I had a lump in my throat, watching her today.
The carpet looked so much better when we finished. Mom exclaimed over and over about what a good job the little machine did. It doesn't take much to make her happy. :o)
