Okay okay, I know that this is my 3rd post tonight, and I'm bordering on pathetic, but let me explain. Jake is gone. He's fishing in Washington right now with his dad. Props to me for being a freaking awesome wife to let him go after he's been non-existent for the past two weeks because of dental school 2nd year finals (only Sarah Cook can truly understand!) My kids have been in bed for 4 hours now, and I've been cleaning my carpets for the past 3. This is the reason for the blog craze. It's my way of connecting to the outside world. CAN YOU HEAR ME?!?!?!

Okay, so today I dropped a Costco sized tub of laundry detergent on my floor. That was open!!!!!!!!! Granted it wasn't full, but still, let me continue. If you think cleaning vomit or diarrhea out of carpet is hard, try cleaning laundry detergent. I've been working on a dish sized spot forever!!!!!! Stupid carpet wont stop sudsing. Grrrrr. So now you all know, keep liquid detergent OFF of carpets, or you will be sorry.

Until next time...

I feel your pain. You are much much nicer then me! I wouldn't have let him go...actually I probably would...they need a brake too after all that studying! Ben just finished his phase 2 tests. And now he starts in the hospitals!! But we get a lovely, much needed 1 1/2 month brake. I totally forgot I even had a husband the last few months! But we are half way done!!!! Yipee!!!

Ohhh, I've had shampoo in carpet (the actual hair kind not carpet of course) but I can see how laundry detergent would be much worse! Good luck with that.

We can ALL identify with missing the husband. I feel so lucky the weeks Nathan sleeps at home more nights than in a hotel.

You sound like me. That is why i"m obssessed with email. Its my connection to the outside world. I can't wait until this year is over for you. Does it feel like it's going fast?

I feel out of the loop. All your dental school friends understand. My husband is around more than I'd like most of the time. I'm joking, he's a fabulous student (Staight A's this semester!)
