Wish this was me today...lazing about. Instead I have miles to go and much to do. However, perhaps this picture does do my mindset justice...smile. We've just had this huge work week...and I'm still lagging from it. I called the carpet people this morning and said we were not happy with the installation. A seam running down the center of the room...hmmm. They will get back to us about it, after I turned down the suggestion of an allowance$. I'm hoping they will have a solution but if not...'what can't be cured must be endured'. Off I go to my cello practise...I'm going to try practising scales for 30 minutes with the tv on mute.

i've never heard the expression "what can't be cured, must be endured ... " our old world today doesn't want to endure anything! but sometimes we must!

i hope you DO get some rest ...

sending (hugs) to you!

I would certainly be upset about a seam down the center of a carpet. You should "stick to your guns" about getting it fixed "someway". Only problems can come from that installation. Nice to be reading your blog as I always love coming to your site. Sandy

Hope you take some time to get a little knitting in :o)

I am hoping to make a new post on my knitting blog in the next day or two. I've been working on some baby socks (they're so cute!) and hope to get a pic of them up. These are very easy and don't take really very long to complete.

Still have 1 paper to work on for school and a test to study for...but in about a month from now I'll be able to knit a lot more...at least until I start working, LOL!

Hello Miss Maggie, love the picture, but then, you always seem to find such lovely, gentle pics to share with us.
After a week like you've just had it would be so nice NOT to have to deal with something like that bad installation. Maybe if it's a contract with them the 72 hrs would apply? I just can't think what options you would have once it's "in".....I'll pray for a good outcome for you and DH, Hugs, Finn

Thank you for stopping by and visiting while I've been out and about. Hope you're able to get your carpet problem fixed.

God bless!

Hrmm - damn, it's such a nuisance when you hire a so called 'professional' tradesperson to do something and they do it wrong! I hope they come over and fix it for you. Stand strong and be firm...

Oh, and give yourself a few days of rest and pampering huh?

I have to seriously wonder about a tradesman that would put a seam down the middle of the room. Whenever we have had carpet laid I was always told the seams should run down one side of the room and it shouldn't be near a door if possible so that isn't noticable and there is less wear and tear. I hope it all works out for you.
