We've started working on some things in the house that needed to be replaced/updated - we're starting with the downstairs flooring - time to get rid of all the ()*@#$&)(*#$ green carpets that I so happily chose 15 years ago! HUNTER GREEN!!! We ordered new carpets (in a neutral beige) which will be installed in about a week and a half, so we started ripping up the old carpets - what a disgusting dirty job. You'd think I never clean my house, judging by how much dust and dirt is being tossed around. We're doing the downstairs family room, living room, dining room, front hall, stairs going to the second floor, and second floor hall - all in the same beige. That's a LOT of furniture to rearrange and get out of the way! The poor cat is beside himself - he doesn't like furniture getting moved, and there are tacks along the perimeter of all the walls, so he has to watch his step! Here are a few photos of the ripping up job :D Of course, I'm unable to place the photos side by side to save space, and I'm not able to get the text beside the photos. Enjoy the mess, and be thankful it's in MY house, not yours!
