What were they thinking? Who would build a house that has several bedrooms and think to themselves "Hmm, I think we should put very light, cream colored carpet all through the house" "Yeah, that will be great for families that live here and have children" We have been able to replace the carpet downstairs but still have the nasty (been here since the beginning) stuff upstairs.
On a related note, did you know that peroxide helps to get blood out of the carpet? Yep, it just kind of eats it up. Just in case you ever need it.
**Edited** Don't worry, Blake has allergies and gets a really dry nose in the Spring and he has had a couple of bloody noses the last couple of days.
