Welcome to my knitting blog!
So, still no camera and no pictures. I'm dying to post some pictures but alas....our office equipment is piled in boxes in the garage. I am supposed to be emptying those boxes and organizing our bedroom. We are expecting my father in law this weekend and are going to let him have our bedroom for his stay here. This involoves me piling more boxes of crap from our bedroom into the garage to make our bedroom halfway decent for company. It will probably end up being me re-organizing the stash because that is what is taking up most of the dresser/closet space in our bedroom. He'll wake up to a mountain of yarn piled in every corner of the room. He probably won't realize what a treat this is.
The past six days have been a whirlwind of activity. We are pulling up our old carpet (which was incidentally someone else's old carpet before we moved here) and replacing it with the interlocking laminate stuff. I cannot begin to tell you how freaking happy this makes me! For weeks before I was dreaming about ripping this smelly and stuffy old carpet out- literally dreaming and even living on the concrete if we had to! So in 3 days work we've refloored two rooms and a small hallway. The next three days comprised of me vainly trying to further progress on it by myself while simultaneously keep track of my kids. The thrilling part for them is that they will each get a new room. I've taken this opportunity to hijack the "computer room" from my husband and bestow it to the proper recipient of the space; my three year old Aaron. Today we bought discount quilts and a Hot Wheels pillow for his new room. Our next big challenge: finding a place for the computer (and stereo my husband insists we have hooked up). This weekend will be the end of the much hated living room carpet. I will NOT be sad to see it go. Actually, I think a celebratory dance will be in order....
