Might be time to call Empire Today

I’m thinking my carpet’s time might be just about up, here. I was just vacuuming my bedroom and living room. Oh, shut up. Quit laughing. It happens. Rarely, I know, but it happens. It’s embarrassing enough without listening to you giggle. Can we move on now? Ahem.

I was just…..stop…..vacuuming my floors. Now, I have reported before that my carpet looks a little worn on spots. I might even have mentioned the bald spots in it. But I don’t think I have told you that those bald patches seem to be growing, and that we may eventually be walking on just the carpet backing because the carpet will be gone. You know how some people check the brush each morning after they brush their hair? Well, I have a bagless vacuum, and and I check to see what’s in there when I dump it, and you know, lately, there has been an amazing amount of lint-y type fuzzy stuff. You know. The kind of fluff that might be made of *gulp* carpet fibers. I’d show you, but I just dumped it after I got through vacuuming, and now it’s in the nasty trash can, and some things just should not be seen, and among those things are my kitchen garbage.

Of course, I have mentioned before that I am ready to give up my carpet and my kitchen linoleum for hardwood flooring. I just love the look of it, and seriously, the idea of being able to clean my floors with a swiffer instead of lugging around a vacuum does have a wonderful appeal. Mine is light, yes, but not as light as a swiffer.

And have I mentioned the mud? You know that pile of koolaid created sludge there where the kitchen meets the living room? My kids like to stand there so they are technically “in the kitchen” but can still see the tv. Well, I am scared to clean it, because…….. what if the [tag]carpet[/tag] just dissolves? Ykwim? That could be bad. Really bad. Of course, maybe I should do it just to see, because if that did happen, then I could have a good excuse to just rip the whole mess up, LOL!

Heh. Maybe they can give me a good quote on the kitchen, living room AND the small bathroom. The floor in there has just a touch of water damage. Then I could write one of those Empire Today Bath Stories, only way funnier than the ones they have now. Because life is just easier if you can keep on laughing, right? Especially if your carpet has bald spots created by many happy little feet.
