I don't have much time right now, so this one's gonna be nice and short... but warning I do have a long post coming up soon lol.
So two Christmas' ago my parents gave us gift cards to JC Penny's. We had no idea what to do with them... I think we got me some jeans or something w/ one (Kalila was 3 months old, I was getting to the point where everything in my closet was either way too big or way too small... Unfortunately I got stuck in that position lol). Anyways, we didn't want to spend it all on clothes but on something for the house... something for our family. But we couldn't find anything or think of anything at the time. Card went in diaperbag and we figured we'd be back at some point.
Well, the other day I caught Kalila pulling it out for the millionth time and warned Baba that we prob should use it soon before she loses it for good. We decided to go on his day off... which ended up being perfect timing. They had a sale going! Always nice right?
We looked at a couple different things. Besides there being a sale, the good thing about waiting so long to use it is that we have a more definate idea about what we'd like, what we really need and what we don't. We'd almost settled on a waffel iron - which I'll admit falls more on the what we'd like side than on the need side lol... (is why it got dropped, would be nice to be able to make them but no complaints). But then we saw a steam mop...
Backing up you might remember me saying something awhile back about carpet cleaning. It's just awful. I vacuum at least once a day, usually twice (sometimes more) and there's stains... I scrub and scrub and some come up... some don't. I got to the point that I saw that Little Green Bissel and was so tempted.... But it came down to choosing between it and Kalila's bed... Throw in that despite it being eco friendly, it does use chemicals... and we're trying to get away from that. In the end obviously not worth it.
And then we saw the steam mop at Penny's. On sale. Works on floors and carpets. Also eco friendly... and best yet - No chemicals! So that's what we chose as our Christmas gift two years late... or something like that lol.
Baba had the day off yesterday, and I'll get more into this later... but I spent a good part of the day cleaning our carpets. Oh good grief. You'd think w/ all that vacuuming I'd at least have been doing something... Oh no... I actually got pics of the cleaning pads... that I had to wash 3 times yesterday so I could start back up (it only comes with 2). Awful I tell you. I still need to get the bedrooms and floors... and the front prob should be gone over again soon... As much extra work as that gives me I'm actually happy about it. For one I'll have the place more than just looking clean...
Anyways, gotta run...
