Last night... Another crazy big job.

All three vans and the three of us.

I'm not on my "A" game yet. Just dragging!

I turned the guys loose on the carpets of a truck stop restruant while I started on the greasy kitchen 4 inch square typical tile.

I decided to go check out the guys...

Unbelievable not on point rookieness going on.

One van a door wide open in the now 10 degree weather while trying to clean (I closed the door before freeze up)

Brady, hardly any suction (didn't change the filter bag after full day of cleaning)

Told him to change filter (idiot move)... By this time water laying in the bottom of the filter clean out has now created an ice block 6 inches deep into the 3 inch hose! 🙄😡

Aron is now getting involved... And everyone keeps going to the hose inside to check. Went out and showed... Find the point of the plug up.. It's in the van!

I tear into it... My van is running but no moving water for at least 10 to 15 minutes but heated up enough not to freeze up.

Got this van working and all kids fishing tangle free by now... But just pissy by now! (Marty @hogjowl would have been in heaven seeing my rant!)

Tomorrow I allowed the wife and daughter to schedule a Couple of large jobs for the guys in a well to do customer in neighboring town an hour away, and I will take on what was to be the simpler job which now just turned into 23 chairs, 2 couches, area rugs, thousands of Sq feet of wall to wall... From $400 now to $3800 job...

Yeah... I'm not feeling good yet and pissy! 🙁 (HEADACHE!)

If I die... I told them "do not resuscitate"!

Donate "Christine the Butler" to a Mikey's Board auction....

I will miss my puppy....

If I lived even 30 miles farther north I would have to be an office jockey. Thankfully most ice and snow stays around the NC VA line.

That video makes me cold just looking at it.
