New carpeting

April 13th, 2007 at 09:55 pm

My carpet was installed today. As much as I hated spending the money, I am thrilled with the result. And, once they pulled up the old carpet, I saw very clearly why the spots never came clean. The damage went all the way through the pad and into the floor. I poured some bleach on the floorboards before they laid the new pad; hopefully that will keep smells at bay. Since the cat who made the mess is gone, there is hope that the carpet will stay clean.

After pulling all the furniture back in (part of which was setting up the computer again and untangling all the cords) I was too tired to do anything else. I rested a bit and then went to Menard's (my home away from home) and bought some ceiling paint ($12) and returned a switchplate ($2). Then I grocery shopped ($42) and filled a prescription ($24). I also paid the carpet-layers $10 to carry a heavy futon down to the garage.

I feel like I haven't done much. Maybe after I get off the computer I'll scrape the wall again. Oh joy!

My dog took his bandage off today, but it was with my permission. His foot appears to be pretty well healed, and he doesn't seem to be bothering it too much. We are both very happy he is not wearing the cone on his head any more. I hope, oh I hope I hope his foot does not get infected again.

I have been invited to my nephew's wife's baby shower tomorrow. It is a three-and-a-half hour drive away. I want to go, and I think I will, if I can get going early enough in the morning.

While I was out, my handyman came and installed one, and only one, cabinet knob in the kitchen. I wonder what the story behind that is!

    I always read with interest what you're up to with your house. I have an old house, and keep trying to 'keep it up' (and spend way too much time and money at Home Depot!) I can only imagine what it would take to make our house marketable, but have no immediate plans to find out, luckily. Best wishes!!

    I' glad your dog is doing better. Have fun tomorrow at the shower.
