House chaos

We have carpets upstairs cause we couldn't afford all wood floors when we built the house.  They are warm in the winter but have to be cleaned occasionally.  For some reason I got ambitious and signed up the carpet guys to come and do EVERY ROOM. What was I thinking?  

I forgot the chaos that comes along with getting EVERYTHING off the floor.  This is my guest bedroom.  and all the junk on the bed was on the floor or a side table. Might be time to thin out a few things. 

And this is my nice clean hallway.  Now I can't do anything on it for 24 hours, like maybe I can tiptoe across but that's about it.

Don't know how we are going to hopscotch into bed, but we'll figure it out.


What a way to spend an afternoon off.  My mind works in mysterious ways.

Aaaah, nothing feels/smells better than freshly cleaned carpet.
I love hardwoods,,,but actually prefer carpet in bedrooms, as they're just warmer/cozier to me.
Idea:
Mr DH can carry you to bed, then there's only one set of prints traipsing across the carpet.
Good, huh?

But it sure looks sooo good now. I like the feel of new carpets, but the smell makes me quite ill- I would have to leave home for a week if I did this. A huge endeavour- but you are gonna love the results. Enjoy. My answer is: why even go to bed, stay where you are and cuddle LOL
