minus34

I am not exactly sure what we do,
as a collective whole of five humans, and no furry creatures....
to carpet....
but somehow.
we completely trash it.
I have actually experimented with this in several houses.
moving every year will allow for that.
and in every house.
it's the same.
we don't wear shoes in the house.
the boys can't bring food or drinks out of the kitchen.
(I know. I'm horribly mean aren't I?)
they are boys for sure.
but they aren't a particularly rowdy bunch...
and yet.
somehow.
the carpet still looks gross.
I hate carpet.
in my next house I want hardwoods.
or bamboo.
or any combination.
wall-to-wall wood.
how appropriate in my male dominated household.
carpet is just not good match for us.

at basketball practice.
"what coach are you looking for?" says the nice lady at the Baptist Church.
"coach chad" I say.
"lets see....oh. your coach is the one over there with the blue balls"

how nice of them to have different color basketballs.
how unfortunate of them to give the immature mom's team the blue ones...
me.
being the immature mom.
of course.

carpet sucks!
our house has carpet in our family room and my office and our whole upstairs and we trashed it! mostly paint and markers! LOL! so even though we are a female dominated family, we still trash carpeting LOL! you aren't alone!
