100 Word Challenge: Spot

Perhaps it’s a sign of advancing age, but when I found a little extra money in my budget this month I didn’t opt for new spring clothes or a new purse, no I was more practical.

I bought a spot rug cleaner, and I am ][ this close to being giddy about shampooing my carpet.

Who am I kidding… I’m literally giddy and have been attacking stains and blotches throughout my house with Christmas morning excitement.

I actually woke up on Wednesday and without even changing out of my pjs began work on my bedroom hallway.

(While living in my current home, I’ve had several dogs with incontinent problems and cats who refuse to puke on tile. No matter how quickly I try to clean those mishaps, there always seems to be a stain that lingers.)
