I'm currently shampooing the carpeting in my place. I had a cat for a few years and she decided the litter box wasn't good enough to urinate in anymore. It is one of the worst smells to get rid of. I got my girlfriend a puppy for valentines day and well, he was a bit difficult to train. We also have a baby on the way so the other week I came to the conclusion that we should just make things simple and get rid of the animals (and the headaches) and learn to live with each other before the baby comes. Needless to say things have been better since then. We are getting to know each other and get comfortable with each other in order for the child to have a better home.
I have a feeling that this child is going to be the source of much inspiration that I have been missing in my life. It's been a long time coming but as they say 'better late than never'.
