Breaking News

The hardwoods will be installed this weekend.

I repeat: The hardwoods will be installed this weekend.

Bob the builder is coming. He is installing the flooring. We are doing the prep work. Carpet and linoleum removal.

A transformation is near.

Goodbye skanky multicolored indoor/outdoor-esque living room carpet from the 1970's. I will not miss you. I will not shed a tear over your departure. I will rip you out with wild abandon.

And linoleum, under the are no match for my mad scraping skills. I conquered you in the kitchen. I will triumph over you again.

But I still won't host Christmas dinner.

Maybe next year.


  1. Since you're going to be so good at this ugly carpet removin' thing, maybe you could come on over & pull up my ugly pea green carpet. That's going to be my new year project. Good luck!

  2. Good luck and I'll be smiling a little smile for you this weekend! We've begun the "shopping and research" phase of our floor redo, and it's getting me so excited! I may have to get more advice from you after your install. :)

  3. GOODBYE, CARRRRRPET!!!!!! I can't wait to see the transformation! Exciting!

  4. I have an idea!!! New Years game night at YOUR beauty-full house next year!!! Forget Christmas, yo.
