Carpet Diem

Last night in the battle of Dyson v. berber carpet, the Dyson won.

But not in a good way.

Apparently our berber had a snag in it. The Dyson grabbed on tight. Before I even realized what was happening, we had a rip in our carpet and a LONG strand of berber wrapped tightly around our Dyson’s roller thing.

If this weren’t bad enough, this is the second time this has happened. We have two Dyson-induced runs in our carpet. Our Dyson works a little TOO well. Also, I hate berber. This would never happen with regular carpet.

Our carpet is a mess in other ways. It’s full of stains that the steam-cleaner didn’t touch. We painted last year and I knocked a bucket of green paint on it. There’s a green stain that won’t go away. It’s under our toddler art table, but it’s still there.

We really need new carpet. I wish it could happen now, but it’s not going to happen for a long time. Why? Because one little girl is about to pee all over our carpet. And another little girl will be peeing all over it in about four years. There is no point in replacing this carpet until we get through two nightmare-ish potty training sessions.

I guess we could put in hard wood or wood laminate floors now, but I hate to think of my poor little fetus crawling around on such a hard surface when we have this nice soft gross carpet for her pad her little knees on.

Until then, I guess I’ll just pretend like my carpet doesn’t have holes and stains in it. It’s kind of hard to ignore, but I’ll make it. I guess I have to.

I guess the good thing about having to wait is that by the time we can replace the carpet, I’ll be back at work and we’ll have another income around here to pay for that new carpet.
