The Fun Begins.

I'm lying. There is nothing remotely fun about the mess I will be living in for the next year or so. Or maybe month or so.

We have been in our home for about nineteen years, the longest by far that we have lived in any one house. All of the flooring except for that in our bedroom has been replaced over the years, mostly by hardwood. So now we are getting rid of the disgusting, dust-ridden carpet that probably adds to my allergy problems. Yay!

However, not-so-DH said he "wants" to do this himself. He has put down flooring before so it's not as if he doesn't know what he's doing. BUT it takes him considerably longer than it would take a flooring crew to do it since he is a crew of only one. So we will not be using our bedroom, bathroom and closet for an undetermined amount of time.

And there will be horrid amounts of dust everywhere, no matter how much I try to seal up the bedroom.

I say it's our patriotic duty in this time of recession to hire a local business to do this; we are probably causing some family to go without during these hard times. But as you can see from the photograph, this argument has gotten me nowhere. Sigh.

Pray for me, or invite me for an extended visit. Please!!!

You and your new floor will be in our prayers! :) Hope all goes smoothly!
