Saturday afternoon--cleared out
Sunday, mid morning, Aaron
arrives to rip it up.
Monday morning- 10:00,
Kevin arrives to put the new down
Putting down the padding
Best pad I could buy, if it feels this
soft, what is it going to feel like
when the carpet is down!
Carpet down and being stretched
None of that nasty metal strip
I love a man that knows
how to vacuum!
WOW! It IS the right color!
Both cats walked around the whole perimeter
of the living room and then discussed it.
They acted kind of fearful of it.
Got my tree branch back up.
Finally, after three weeks,
putting it back together.
I want to thank all of you--for your support and encouragement. I was afraid I'd get scolded, "You can't afford to buy food and your getting new paint job and carpeting?"
Well, this didn't come out of my monthly budget. This came from helping Chris with her knitting and crocheting designs, and from every time one of my kids, or sister gave me $$ for my birthday or Christmas. From every pop bottle I returned. Some of my neighbors even gave me their pop bottles to return, because they knew I was saving up.
For my genealogy clients--you are looking at what I did with YOUR money. LOL
All of that, I put away in a jar. Sometimes I had to dip into that jar for car repairs, but I kept stashing.
2.5 years later? I feel like a real person, not some poor, old woman on welfare!
My house is so neat and clean--at least the living room is. LOL Inch by inch.
Now, I'm still stashing for my media center/electric fireplace and hopefully, next summer I can get this nasty room painted and new carpet put down--or at least, painted.
The good Lord willing, and I stay well and keep working--when I "kick", the kids will have a (nicer) place to sell!
