Still Improving

When in doubt, tear up the whole house at once. I realized that the bedroom carpet was coming but hadn’t painted (even though I had over a month’s notice) – can you say procrastinate? So we emptied the bedroom, furiously painted while the old, crapastic carpet was still there (installed on Election Day 2000 – I remember having a fairly heated political discussion with the installer). When this is finished, I know I will love it – it’s just getting there that sucks.
