Dear Universe

Dear Universe,

Hello. How are you? I know you've a lot on your mind. There's much strife in this world and I have no reason to be talking to you about this. We have everything we need, and then some. And yet I can't help myself. It's hard to squelch desires. So I thought I'd just put it out there -- you know, just in case.

Our carpet is gross. More than gross it's flat out disgusting. Eight years of children and pets have taken their toll on the builder grade flooring. It can no longer be cleaned (believe you me I've tried). Shampooing brings out an enchanting fetid odor that lingers for weeks. The carpet is covered in holes, stiff glue spots, regions that were inadvertently painted and areas the pets have baptized. It needs to go.

And truth-be-told we are not carpet people. We need a solid surface that can withstand abuse. I know just what I want, desire. Wide-plank reclaimed wood flooring. It's perfect in so many ways: green, hypoallergenic, easy to clean and pre-abused. It would be AMAZING!

So I just thought I'd put it out there: if at anytime you come across such flooring in need of a place to live we'd happily provide a home. Really.

Thanks for listening.

I love wide plank wood flooring, too. AND...I'm sitting in a house with wall to wall. Yep. If the universe delivers--let me know!
