Having a major sleepover wasn’t enough to fill this President’s Day weekend. Oh no! Jeremy and I thought we would tackle something else as well… pulling up all the carpet in our main living space! I will admit that I wasn’t much help in the pulling up department, but I pulled my weight in cleaning up the wreckage. The carpet left a nice thick layer of dust EVERYWHERE as a parting gift, so I spent most of my afternoon/evening deep cleaning and trying to get the general feeling of grime out of my house. Currently, I’m wearing hard soled slippers around the house because the floor is a bit… rustic… I’m not really sure the best way to put it. Our new floors will be installed next weekend by my very handy family members. I think this week without flooring will make me even more grateful for the new floors to come. It’s a little weird to be without carpet, but now that things are tidied up a bit, I don’t mind it all that much. This part of the project was what I worried about most – the destruction – once Jeremy took that razor to the carpet there was no going back. Now that it’s done I feel better and I’m ready for the next and final phase. We did hit a small speed bump, but I think it’s solvable (with a little extra cash, of course). Originally I thought I was cool with having company over tomorrow, but mid-project I decided to take my mother-in-law up on her offer to host our Growth Group for this week. It probably would have been okay, but it’s now one less thing to worry about. I did, however, make the decision to move the group after cleaning my bathrooms… Oh well. I guess I can’t complain about clean bathrooms.
The sleepover is over – check! The flooring is pulled up – check! The house is clean – check! All materials are ready for Growth Group – check! Looks like I’m dominating this crazy big, crazy busy weekend! Oh yeah! It feels good! More updates to follow the adventures of Jeremy and Amy in Home Improvement Land – hopefully a happy ending to follow!
