The Daily Dribbles


The day the carpet turned red...

I was busy typing away on my computer.

I had a fresh glass of cranberry juice by my feet.

When all of a sudden my little side kick says, "I want to do my painting"

I with out a doubt swing my legs over and place my laptop on the table when I hear a crash.

I look down to see my fresh glass of cranberry juice tipped over and grab my computer.

Dash to the kitchen for a towel.

As I start to cleaning the floor.

I my carpet is turning red.

I was down on my knees patting and cleaning..

At least the carpet is already a mess.

A little red does not hurt does it?


  1. Wet the carpet again and pour some table salt on it. It might pull the stain out! It's at least worth a try.

    Oh, and I totally spilled some red Kool-Aid on my sheets the other night. OOPS!

  2. Baking soda!! Or oxy clean! It might work.

    And . . . I have SO done that.

  3. Funny post...
    I hope the carpet is okay...

    Have a great day..

    Stopping by from the party..

  4. Oh yea... been there... done that!

    I am opting for hardwood floors in the living room this spring!

  5. Oh that would stink!!

    What a fun idea this blog hop is! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and following today:) Following right back:)

  6. My carpet is dark forest green. Punch, apple juice, and much more has been spilled on it. I hope yours was a darker color. But probably not from the sounds of it. :( Sorry. This is an interesting meme. Fun too.

  7. So happy I don't have carpet!! So happy!
    I hope you can get it out somehow. Blech!

  8. This is a great post! So different. I love it. I hope you got the stain out girl.

  9. That's why I don't drink red stuff. Yep. Not really. I dunno what I'm talking about.

  10. Glad I'm not the only one who has messes like this!

  11. My friend once told me...forget about stains until the kids are outta the house! =)

  12. Uh, no comment. I am sorta known for these types of things. Which is actually good, because it surprises no one when I do them.

  13. My littlest just smashed red lip gloss into the white carpet of the house we're renting. High traffic carpet cleaner and Mr. Clean Magic eraser combined with enough elbow grease to make might knuckles bleed did the trick. Good luck.

  14. We only have carpet in one room, our bedroom, and I am so glad! We are dangerous with carpet.

  15. Grateful I can't be blamed for all the red blotches on our carpet. Can't wait to be able to replace it.

  16. I saw this, what a fun linky! I totally get that you can't share everything you want on your own blog. Have a great week!

  17. What a fun idea! The blog hop.

    Good luck with the carpet. I have no new advise from what was already offered. I hope it comes out.
