Okay, it’s no secret that I’ve been really depressed lately. The humidity and heat have kept me inside a lot of the time and that in turn leads my head to the “feeling sorry for myself” thoughts I get at times. I try really hard not to think about it but at times, it’s hard to do. It’s easy to think “knock it off” but it’s a lot easier to say than do.
I have needed new rugs in my laundry room and kitchen for quite some time but the last time Nikki came to clean all the icky stuff, the padding stuff on the bottom stuck to the floor and we had to use a soft scraper to get it off so I knew it was time. I tend to wait way too long in buying my rugs.
SO….Paul called me one morning last week and said he needed to go to Walmart and asked if there was anything I needed so I said “could you pick up two rugs for the kitchen and one for the laundry room? In the winter I like two in the laundry room because of the melting snow but in the summer I only need one. I said to him that anything with light green and red would be fine. I said I didn’t really care.
This is what I got.
This may sound like I’m going to husband bash but I have no plans to do that. These rugs are so hideous that we cried laughing. I didn’t have the heart to tell him how ugly I thought these were because he really meant well but he thought the same thing. I see no light green in these rugs but I’ll tell you one thing, the price of these were worth the side-splitting laughter we had that night. It was just what I needed and every time I look at these rugs I break down in laughter.
At least someone likes them. I don’t know why she does it but Miss Maddie gets these rugs all rolled up and climbs through them like a tunnel.
You know what they say, “all’s well that ends well.” Thanks Paul. You really have been terrific through all my trials. If there was a husband of the year award, I’d nominate you for all you’ve put up with.
What has your better half or someone you know brought home that you thought was hideous and did you laugh hysterically?
