Holes = New Floors
First things first. Kami will be glad to know the toilet has been taken by some lucky fool. Sorry people, there will be no toilet/flower pot this spring:

It's so nice when perfect strangers take your trash. I LOVE it. I actually got my sewing table from a bulky trash weekend. I made my husband drive his truck by the house so I could put the table in the back. The only way he agreed to help me was by me promising that he didn't have to get out of the truck. He hates anything having to do with selling/giving away "trash" such as garage sales and bulky trash days. He thinks they're, well, trashy.

Here are the photos of our walls:

Other than the cats and dogs (ha! I just noticed Dulce is sniffing one of the holes in that photo) trying to get into the holes, I'm not freaking out. I just keep telling myself that new flooring is going to be the payoff. I think I'm going to do Pergo or wood in the guest room, office and main hall while we can (insurance will pay for new carpet, so we'll just pay the difference). We'll do the living room and maybe the master bedroom at some other point when we haven't just paid the almost $900 deductible. What do you think about keeping carpet in the master bedroom?

i am a huge fan of carpet in the bedroom. Hard wood every where else. I like getting out of bed on warm carpet and it is also a good sound barier...

Glad you're not freaking out.

I got no advice re: wood v. carpet. I've never had wood floors. I would love to, though.

I love wookd floors, but I'd keep carpet in the master room.

Damn. I really wanted to see some flowers in that potty.

Blogger Kami said...

Er, wood.

Well, I am a big fan of hardwood floors and am itching to do out house, but the gals do have a point about the warmness, and, uh, sound muffling properties ;)

Damn toilet is gone. How about one of those bathtub things??

Yeah, it's not cool waking up and having to put feeties on cold floors. I say carpet in the bedroom.

The only place to use carpet - the bedroom! Go for it! (Try shag carpet - very hot right now in LA)

Well, I have this dream to one day have hardwood floors throughout my entire home and just rugs (that fit in the washer) in a few places so when the cats vomit, it doesn't stain... just my opinion...

hey puppy! look at him thinking he's all sneaky... 'what? no, I wasn't trying to go in, I was just checking for any creatures that might want to attack you...' :)

I agree with carpet in the bedroom even though I love my laminate flooring. It's COLD and drafty in the winter and it would be nice to step out of bed onto something warmer.

I've had both wood and carpet in my masters and I have to say, as much as I love, love, love wood, it's to nice to hae your tootsies sink into cooshy carpet in the morning.

I love our hardwood floors but I do like carpet in the bedrooms. And there's probably some sexual joke there but I'm so not going to go there!

We have wood floors in all the rooms in our house except for the bedrooms. We left the carpet in there and I like it.

We put some lawn chairs out in our front yard and someone came and took them. That never ceases to amaze me!

I agree carpet in the bedroom. I used to have hard wood floors & LOVED them. However, I think it's cozier to have carpet in your bedroom.
