Get 'er Done
One floor done
Another to start.
I have a new pellet stove to put in this room,
but haven't done it because the carpet needed replaced.
I don't know how I am going to haul the carpet here,
what kind of carpet I want, a thing about laying carpet,
but this carpet had to go! Nothing would get me going
on this project faster than tearing out the old carpet and
having the results to look at.
It was a good thing I didn't know ahead of time how
hard it is to pull up glued down carpet!
It was killing us!
Finally Rikki and I went to the shop to find something
to use besides our bare hands.
See that "pincher" tool in the middle?
If it weren't for that tool,
we would still be tugging up an inch at a time
and whining about it.
We also learned to work together,
rather than in our respective corners.
I would "pinch and pull" and the girls would "claw".
We got the job done.
Time for a little relaxation and a movie.
Then head back to town
for a Frosty Float from Wendy's.
