Another one bites the dust

We can officially scratch another thing off of the summer 'to-do' list. The carpets have been shampooed.

I really want to pull them up.............. but I don't think that is going to happen this summer.

I pulled up the carpets in my old house in Virginia and loved just having the hardwood floors. I had to dustmop (thank goodness someone invented Swiffer!) every other day because dust shows up like crazy on hardwood. My house in Seattle had hardwood throughout the foyer, breakfast area and kitchen. Again, I Swiffered every day but boy, did those floors look good!

I did that this summer too. Felt really good to have that done, but they are starting to show the dirt again already. Oh, well, next summer they will get the treatment again, maybe by a professional this time. It really wasn't as hard as I thought it was going to be, just the thinking made me tired :)

I don't know how people with 'real jobs' ever get things done without a summer vacation!

Oh Nancy! When are you coming to my house???

Thank goodness we have VERY little carpet, but the flip-side is the dirt is ALWAYS apparent on hard wood floors.

Wow, your summer sounds ALMOST as exciting as mine. So good to get things done though. It can be so hard to find time during the school year.

No carpet here either, and Amy, you're right the hardwood floors show EVERYTHING!! My steps are a nightmare! Dust bunnies abound here!
