My house stinks!
What do you do for stinky house problems? My home is old, you know..., 1950's old. The carpet isn't too bad, just gone through a few renters, I'm sure. Every time I walk in the door there's a hint of cigarette, rotten food, stinky diapers, you name it. I've painted my walls, cleaned the carpet, wiped down the kitchen (all the cupboards, etc.). Is there any other remedy? Yes, I've used candles, but they kind of just ADD another smell, they don't really take away the smell, ya know?
Well. This is boring. Maybe I should update what's happenin' with the fam.
...not much. (;
My bike has been fixed and we have our bike trailer back from our friends who so kindly kept it for us when we were in WA. I LOVE biking! My kids love it, and now we have a way to get out and enjoy the hot, humid, summer evenings. And the beebs are actually going to bed at a more decent hour thanks to the bike riding. Geof. and I had a wonderful date the other night. Just me and him, yummy Mexican food, a dip in the river after dark (yes, we did have to wear our swimsuits, darn it!). I can't tell you how important those once a week dates are for my sanity (and Geof.'s!). And they make me realize (of course) how much I love this guy that I see daily, talk to sometimes (when the kids aren't completely taking over all forms of communication), and sleep next to. I heart Geof. I do.
