Input needed on floor steamer

Does anyone have a floor steamer? I want to buy one for the tile. If anyone has one and likes it or doesn't I would love the brand name and where you got it. Also the price. Thanks for the help. These floors need help.

Also Orkin came and today a huge 3 inch roach was dying in the garage. Does anyone else get those huge things? I am still shuttering!

Ryan got me thinking!

I think light bulbs and batterys have a suicide pack...that is why when one-takes a powder-they all do.

I think you can never have too many good friends.

I think I waste a lot of time watching crap on TV.

I think Obama needs to watch replays of his campaign tapes.

I think people in Heaven should have phone privleges.

I think windshield manufacturers should work harder! (Those things are crap.)

I think people in the service industry should actually do what they say they are going to do.

I think New Moon will set me off on another EDWARD frenzy!

Out there somewhere

I posted this morning but it didn't post. Can't remember what I said but I'm sure it was witty and charming!

Had a fun day with Rylee: Came here at 6:45, she woke up and had her milk around 7:15-we played in the play room until Breakfast then went to my house for her nap. Had lunch, we played until she got cranky about 2:30 and headed back here where she is napping in her own crib. Pretty uneventful except for the side trip to HomeGoods! She was having fun looking at all the bright and pretty things...I'm pretty sure she asked me for her own credit card...but it was garbled.

Book Club in two days...I'm looking forward to that! Finished the book today.

Weather is Fab

Oh man I love this weather! I even took Angel out for a nice walk, she loved it too! I would love to open the bedroom window at night but I can't figure out how to have it open and still have the alarm system armed! I will have to get out the book.
I am too chicken to sleep without the alarm. Even though I have a gun by my bed. Living alone is not my favorite thing. I have been a chicken since I was a kid. Most likely my big brother is to blame! He loved scaring me and I never got over it.

Rylee sure wouldn't eat this morning...not french toast, nor yogurt, nor cereal. I guess she will eat at lunch.

Both dog's seem less than great, but not as bad...we'll see if the meds worked...Angel's are done today.

I am pooped out today, I may nap with Rylee.

quite the morning!

What a morning I've had and it's only 9:30! Rylee and I were in the play room around 7:00 am and I heard a dreaded beep...the battery in one of the four smoke detectors located in a eight foot area...was going. Normally I would ignore the annoying beep but Rio is terrified of it. I went down stairs to let her up through the gates. Now I can't figure which one is beeping. When I think I have it I drag a stool over and I am still too short. I go get a step ladder and pull the plug on it. Then you must change the battery or it keeps beeping. Rio & Rylee are under foot during this process. I accomplish the task and bring Rylee down for breakfast. Rio wants to go out...she does and comes in running into the living room. I finish feeding Rylee and follow her out to the other room...much to my horror it has smeary black shit (literally,) all over it! From Rio's paws and now I see,neck, has black crap all over it too. I start the chase, she won't let me near her. I also need to corral Rylee, don't want her in that!

This is the part where if there was a nanny cam on me it would be priceless! Rio hides under the couch and I can't get her. So I clean up the mess and wait for her to come out, When I grab her I try to clean her best I can, she needs a bath tonight! I'm exhausted and Rylee was too as she went down for an early nap. I am going to try to relax a bit. See if I ever fix a smoke detector for you again Rio!!!

Angel seems to be getting better. She is on quarantine for 7 days at least.

Give me a break with this heat!

Sick Angel

Angel has Kennel Cough. Poor sick baby. One week to the day after grooming she got the cough, which is the incubation time for kennel cough. So for sure she got it there, she hasn't been anywhere else to get it. So far Rio isn't sick but they were together a couple days before I knew she was sick. Angel was so good at the Vet's office. She got two shots and never even flinched! He couldn't believe it. He said one shot burns and brings Rotweiler's to their knees screaming in pain! Good job Angel! She is one brave girl. And when it was over she still licked him! She is taking pills but hopefully will feel better soon.

I am done with grooming...I won't take her again. A little voice inside my head told me not to leave her that day...I should have listened! I will next time.

My 10 days hanging out with Shannon has turned into a back breaker and so far no fun. Hopefully this weekend is better. (Although we aren't done so I doubt it!) I hate leaving Angel alone so I am spending part of the day at each house.

What is with this heat!! For all that is Holy...we need a breeze at least.

Early start Friday/and interesting tid bits

Got an early start today as Jon had to get to the airport so I was here a bit before 6:00. Rylee is still sleeping but starting to stir. She hates when you get her up before she is fully awake.

Had a bit of excitment last night while I was talking to the hubby on the phone one of my neighbors called. I ignored the call and when I was done I listened to the voice mail. She was concerned because there were cops in front of my place and they were walking around. When I didn't answer...more concerned. Apparently something happening but I missed the whole thing. I guess that's a good thing?

At Crosby's homecoming football game two weeks ago...there were streakers! Yes, two naked as J-birds in the cold, high school kid streakers! They ran the full lenghth of the field and jumped the fence. (Well one cleared the fence the other one had to take a second try at it. ouch!) They ran off into the woods bare-foot with the cops on thier trail. Sadly, they were tattled on and arrested. What is this world coming to--when kids have to get a police record just for having fun. Chase real crooks could you please!

Nite Nite

Sleeping like a baby on my new bed! So soft. Should have swapped beds with the kids months ago. Oh well it makes me appreciate sleep so much more. Angel seems to like it too. Although to be truthful, not much disturbs her sleep!

This weekend I have several things I should do. But as Jon is gone Shannon, Rylee and I have funner plans. Hope it is not this hot on the weekend!

Had a pretty relaxing weekend and got alot of organizing done in the house. I didn't sleep Sat. night at I had time on my hands. Did get an okay night in Sunday and Jon didn't need me until noon today! The rest felt good but didn't do me as much good as I back is still darn sore.

Rylee just finished her MILK and now she and I are having a tea to run.

Rylee vs Angel

Since Angel was a puppy I have given her a cherrio when she goes potty. Her reward. It worked well and she was trained in a week. However she still demands her reward!

Rylee loves cherrio's as well & Angel hangs close when Rylee eats.

Well, today when Angel went potty-I tossed her a cherrio...and Rylee went for it. She dove to the floor after it. Luckily Angel was faster! But Rylee was not happy about losing out on her treat...I had to give both girls one.

Hopefully, that training technique will work on Rylee when we start potty training her!
