Do rugs normally pill up like this?
I've always had mostly carpet so I'm not very familiar with the upkeep of rugs.
This is how it looked after vacuuming.
I seriously sat on the rug for an hour picking at all the fuzzies. I'm sure there was an easier way but nothing came to mind. I know they make tools to help you with your sweaters. Is there one for rugs? Will I always have to do this?
This is the size if my fuzz ball after completing one-third of the rug.
It was ridiculous.
It looks so much better now... But my back is killing me.
What you could've seen in the picture above if I had aimed my phone up a little higher was my mountain of laundry. I actually meant to take a picture but was on such a roll I forgot. I had to put on my hiking boots to climb up it so I could start folding it. It was THAT bad.
I also went through each of the boys' drawers and closets and did the official passing down of the hand-me-downs. It's been a while. E is 12 and had some 6-8 size stuff in his closet. Whoops.
I vacuumed all of our hardwood floors. I got to suck up lots of spiders. That's always my favorite part.
I unloaded the dishwasher and loaded it back up. Ran it again.
I finished the last load of laundry. (Which added to the mountain).
I dusted a little. Took out the garbage. And did school with Noah.
This is not typical behavior on my part.
So when I get extra energy I hop on that train and ride it as far as I can go. Today it was pretty far.
I'm exhausted. Time for bed.
And if someone has a good tip for de-pilling a rug let me know.
