I’ve always thought that carpet floors are only for the rich. I remember visiting homes with their velvet soft, warm carpets and airconditioned rooms that I thought I could lie down on and have a deep dreamless sleep. Oh, how their feet were probably so relaxed, threading on cloudlike softness all the time.
But now that we have carpet floors, I now understand why this style of flooring is for the rich in the Philippines (but it really isn’t here in the US).
Carpets are a pain in the ass to maintain. Carpets are a bane to my housewifely existence.
