what's new?

In this picture that is...
Want a clue?
Or this picture might help...

Our new rug arrived.
I was out running errands and came home
to find it in the middle of my driveway.
You know.
The one I drive my car up to get into my garage.
One little problem...
That sucker is heavy.

Took everything I had with my bum legs
to pull it up the driveway and inside the gate.
Where it sat for a day.
Where my husband saw it.
Uh oh.
He was like "what is THAT????"
The new rug I mumbled.
Remember we talked about it?
A few months ago.
Remember that?
"How long is this one going to last?"
What are you trying to say?
That I have a problem and buy too many rugs?
Like an addict you have to say the truth out loud.
{Secretly hoping it will confuse the hubs.}
You know "reverse psychology" and all.
Anyway he shook his head
and maybe rolled his eyes
but he helped me lift it inside the door.
Where it sat...
for another couple of days.
I was waiting til he got over
his shock and dismay
at yet another new rug.
But of course one day last week
I couldn't take it anymore.
So I started moving stuff around myself...

and I struggled to roll out the new rug
while keeping the rug pad flat underneath it...

and then my crazy came out
because I was trying to center it in the room
and line it up just so with the fireplace

but the big thing called the Christmas tree
kind of messed up the whole balance thing
the OCD crazy in me was trying to achieve.
Did I mention that sucker is heavy?
Like a hundred pounds heavy.
Finally I thought better of it
and declared my struggle with it
penance enough
for ordering yet another rug
 and then I shimmied
the heavy Wisteria coffee table
back to its OCD
centered spot of honor...

so the before....
and now after...

Sorry for all the pics...
just trying to show the texture of the rug.
It rocks.

and is so soft and thick underfoot.
I even think the hubs likes it.
Not that he would admit that.
But that's my story and I'm sticking to it.


  1. Love the new rug. It makes the room look bigger and brighter.

  2. Bahahah! You are too funny! Where there's a will, there's a way! I swear I get so much stronger when I want to redecorate! ;) And my husband often comes home to a redecorated house, so...(*flexes muscles*).
