Dream Laundry

The carpet looks much better, thanks to Deni and everyone who suggested Oxy Clean!! I found something called "Oxy Deep" and used it last night. Before that I'd spritzed the carpet with cold water and scrubbed scrubbed scrubbed and then blotted off the water. The water treatments and scrubbing had paled out the color but a stain outline still remained. With the Oxy Deep the stain edge has paled and it's not obvious any more! I'm going to do another treatment tonight to try to remove all of the evidence. The stain was right in the middle of the living room floor and difficult to cover. Angela Marie (Rocks) is absolutely right that if the landlord's husband saw the stain on Friday when he takes the girls through on the apartment tour, he'd insist it was still there even if I get it out completely. He's not a reasonable person, like his sweet little wife. I hope she comes back soon!

I had a weird dream about doing the laundry last night! It was the hands-on tedious way that I have to do the laundry now, and there was piles of it. I had a little girl who was cold and wet and needed clean, dry clothing right away--and there is no right away in doing the laundry both for real and in the dream.

It was weird that I had a daughter in my dream. Do you ever have dream children? Or dream friends? I have people who I've never met in real life reoccur as my friends in my dreams. In fact I have an entire set of dream friends and dream locations, too, regular neighborhoods (in great detail) in my dreams over and over. I wonder where that comes from, is it a place I saw when very little so it's not in my conscious memory, or is it totally a figment of my imagination?

Dreams are very interesting but real life intrudes, money needs to be earned and I need to go to work! Have a great day!

I have a house that I dream about all the time, but I have no memory of ever seeing it outside of my dreams. Very strange. Glad I'm not the only one!

Oh I am so glad the Oxy worked for you, that is awesome!!

I dreamed I had a dream child, a recurring dream of a little dark haired boy about 18 months old. I remember carrying him on my hip in the dream, and just knowing somehow that he was mine. My son is blonde and looks totally different than this child looked.

Oh and the baby's name was Noah, how weird that he even had a name, huh?

I hate cleaning carpet too but am pleased yours came out good.

In our last flat we put a stain on the carpet that we couldn't get out but I bargained with them to get all of our bond back as we had fixed their crappy gate for them. It worked.

Oh that's GREAT that the stain came out. So glad for you.

Now, as to any other problems this landlord presents to you (trying to make them YOUR problems), just keep thinking that in no time at all, you will be FINISHED with them completely and you'll be dancing around your new place!
