After waiting for a month to get a carpet sample ordered from company number one with no success, I talked to company number two yesterday about them ordering a sample. I just got a phone call from the actual carpet manufacturer today letting me know that they're sending the sample straight to my house and it's shipping out today.
Thank you company number two for getting it done.
Also, Josh isn't throwing up anymore and my sore throat is gone although it has turned into a head cold.
We might just survive all of this after all. :)
