and as long as I'm being honest - this isn't just happening for the Winter, it's pretty much Daily... since I bought the beastly rug! "Beastly?" - I love this rug... really, got a great bargain on this rug at Bed, Bath, and Beyond a few years ago when we were re-decorating the family room - it pulled the whole "look" together and LUCKILY was about 1/3 the original price!!!
But really - every morning I straighten up this room and center the rug... leaving it about 2.5 inches from the couch, 2.5 inches from the entertainment center and neatly tucked under the edge of the rocking chair... Neurotic? Me? Not much...
(shoot - I think the picture was taken on a day that I yanked the rug as far back as possible hoping to postpone the inevitable... there goes the 2.5 inch thing...)
Then WHAM! the next time I walk into the room the rug has moved - and I'm not pulling out a ruler or anything - sometimes the rug has migrated so far to the Northwest that it is in danger of creating a rug/entertainment center lovechild!
The real question - how is this happening? We walk OUT of the room as often as we walk INTO the room - so shouldn't it be moving both directions? But noooo... nothing matters except the rug which obviously has a thing for the entertainment center and a severe case of separation anxiety... I have to tug it back into place 2 or 3 times per day - and yes - I really do hate it when this happens!
...THIS is why we have hardwood and tile in the rest of the house!
