Finally, zee new rug has arrived. Ordered it at the beginning of May, waiting patiently for over a month for it to come in (backordered, gah).. but 1000% worth the wait.
Also, upon snapping a few pictures I realized the rug needs to be scooted toward the wall a few more inches. So I Photoshopped the above photo. Somewhat badly.
It is SO NICE to finally have a rug in this living room. Sitting on the floor,
rarely working out on the floor, playing with the puppies on the floor without them ramming into whatever furniture that is in their path because they get no traaaction. Phew.
It also provides some gnarly backdrops.
And yes, that is Lily is attacking a dog toy on the top right.
If you’ve got a cat you’ll likely nod in agreement, but this is the sequence of events that usually goes down:
Lily walks up nonchalantly, or lays by the toy for minutes while is seemingly undisturbed.
Then for no reason* the toy is attacked!!
Biting followed by back leg kicking. Lil Bear shows this thing no mercy.
After a few good pauses and resumes, she takes one last kick and..
She’s off! Shoots off into whatever direction she fancies, usually right up the stairs.
*At least none that our feebly human brains can determine
Needless to say Lily LOVES the new rug. Or something.
Since it took a month to come in I totally forgot to buy a rug pad, but so far it’s doing pretty great without one. We might get a pad before the baby arrives, if we feel so inclined. But I also confessed to Ryan we needed one other little upgrade before baby arrives.
I’ve enjoyed having a small little TV in our living room (32″ to be exact) and have taken a bit of pride in it when people
constantly complain that it’s too small. But now. Yeah. I can’t see the damn thing from the kitchen and if I’m going to holed up in this house for weeks come October than yep. TV time. No timeframe yet but our eyeballs are peeled for a deal.
And while I was sitting on the couch I decided to take this..
And swap it with this.
Love the switch, now just need to scoot the picture over down and left a bit and really anchor the screws into the wall — this guy is much heavier then his previous counterpart, even with the flimsy cheap-ass frame. Which I also kinda like.
For now, we bid you adieu. June has lots of weird sunbeam sleeping to catch up on.
Ooo, also, anyone else go rug-pad-less? Does it make that much of a cushy difference or it is just supposed to keep the rug in place? The massive couch does a pretty good job of that..
