This is my floor.
And it's clean.
I don't know whose bright idea it was to invent white carpet, but whoever did should be drug out into the street and shot! I should have taken a before picture but it was too disgusting and embarrassing to keep as a reminder!
We now have clean carpet, though, and I'm starting to think maybe I should set some ground rules in the house..
Would I sound like a total jerk and would you feel unwelcome if I asked you to take your shoes off before entering my house?
I know that people take their shoes off as soon as they get home to be more comfortable, but the minute someone else asks you to take your shoes off -- at their house -- that comfort you feel from taking your shoes off after a long, hard day vanishes. Instead you start feeling insecure about feet smells, if your socks match (or don't match in this day and age), kicking yourself for not getting that pedicure you were thinking about getting for yourself a couple days ago, etc.
Forget it. I may have just talked myself out of my own idea.
