Which means that her room will be vacant, which means that Charles and I can temporarily move upstairs, which means that we can rip up the disgusting carpet in our bedroom (see My Wish List)!!
I never thought I would be so excited about what is certain to be a really gross and unpleasant task. However, the end result will be a new floor in our bedroom! No more yucky carpet! No more eye burning smelliness! No more dust mite habitat!
I think we will be putting down laminate, which is cheaper than hardwood, and a lot easier to clean than carpet, especially 20 year old carpet.
The first step will be packing up all the books in boxes, then packing all the clothes and the contents of the linen "closet" (just a particle board enclosure) in boxes, then moving out the furniture, then demolishing the particle board, and finally, ripping up the carpet and installing the new flooring.
I will keep you posted on our progress.
