I'm keepin' it real with my buddy Jamie this week. She started a fun weekly challenge and this week she asks us to share the ugliest thing in our house with the world. You've been warned.
This week was a toss up between my crap counter in the kitchen.... two of the things in the pile actually belong there. The rest? Not so much
and my carpet.
The carpet wins. I see it every day and every single time I look down I cringe. I hate it.
Who's bright idea was it to fill this house with WHITE carpet? we vacuum, don't wear muddy shoes in the house and have even tried steam cleaning it and nothing! It's ridiculous. These random, and not so random stains just keep showing up. I don't know what some of them are or where they come from...
others... I know exactly what the others are.:
Chocolate. Courtesy of a bunch of grubby chocolate chip cookie eating playgroup kiddos (but mostly my child)
Coffee. Courtesy of my husband. I came out one morning and my darling husband said to me 'don't believe a word P says'. After he had gone to work P says to me 'daddy fell asleep on the couch and spilled coffee all over the floor' Ah! I was wondering why the couch smelled like that... and by the time I knew it was too late to really do anything about it.
And the little pieces of orange thrown in there? freaking silly putty... comes off walls and tile nicely... carpet? nope. Not. A. Chance.
This is the first (and last) house I have ever had carpet in and I can't wait to rip it up and replace it with wood!
