We moved into our new house on Saturday and life has been a little ugly, crazy, STINKY, exciting, stressful, and very exhausting.
Everett went to Grandma's house today so that I could clean the house we moved out of. I spent 8 straight hours cleaning and I feel like I could pass out at any moment. I'm so exhausted. But that house is sparkling clean now and I can check it off of my to-do list.
We've done a little to the new house already. I would love to share pictures but we don't have secure internet access right now and my borrowed access won't let me upload pictures... maybe in a few days.
P.S. the previous owners had a dog and all of the carpets (except for Everett's room and the office) smell like wet dog/stinky feet. We had the carpets professionally cleaned before we moved in (which helped) but the smell still haunts me. We even bought a new vacuum that is supposed to be good at sucking up dog hair/odor. I plan on stopping by the pet store and asking them for advice... but until then, does anyone have any tricks to getting odor out of carpet and thereby saving my sanity?
