New Carpet

I had hardwood floors throughout my whole house with the exception of my kitchen and foyer. My dad offered to get me carpet for my living room for Christmas (and I threw in that it should be for my b-day too) after he painted my living room while I was at the soup kitchen.

To be honest, I have wanted to either carpet the living room or our bedrooms for awhile now. Hardwood floors are beautiful but have their issues too. It was a matter of cost. I just couldn’t justify spending the money I have on carpet.

It seems everyone has an opinion on whether I should have carpeted or not. I don’t mean to be a crab, but let’s make one thing clear… It’s my opinion that counts.

Hardwood floors are beautiful but they are dusty. I sweep, vacuum, and THE NEXT DAY it’s dusty and dirty again! Drives me crazy. This was the dust can go into the carpet, and I won’t see it.

Hardwood floors are cold! A little carpet in the house will be better for warmth and lying on the floor while watching TV.

I like my new carpet. I think it’s nice, I think it breaks up the house a little.

I get the furniture on Wednesday. I will post the pics of the installation of the carpet later. My dad did it all except haul it in. I helped with that. I think my daddy can do anything.

Love your Bible verse!
I think you'll love the soft warm carpeting, hardwood is beautiful, but not so warm on the toes!

Looks beautiful. I even have carpet in my kitchen and when it can no longer be cleaned, I will just replace it. Personally, I think your dad is great. And I love that little spirited "It's mine and my choice.." You sound like me. Love it!
