Smelly old carpet on my mind
Friday, June 17, 2011
Wouldn't it just be easier to move? lol I wasn't planning on working on the carpet today, but Austin was bugging me, saying he wanted to go cut carpet. So we got our trash bags, the exacto knife and headed downstairs. Now let me explain Austin's idea of cutting carpet. He stands there holding a garbage bag, telling me how ugly the carpet is and how badly it needs to be taken out. Then he tells me what section to cut next. While he's playing supervisor, I'm hanging upside down, cutting through 70s carpet, trying to stay focused so I don't slice through my own leg. :P
We, and by we, I mean I, got one whole section done. Still a WHOLE LOT left. Once I get it all out, I'll scrub it down really well with bleach water, then wash it again with Mr. Clean Gain scent! I was going to use lemon Pinesol, but I found this instead. I use Gain laundry soap and love the smell, so this'll be great. Every time the A/C kicks on, its going to smell like fresh laundry. :P
I'm going to leave the floor as concrete. It's all nice and smooth, so it'll be nice. I'd like to have flooring down there, but I don't want to risk water damage from all the rain we get in the summers. We're forever sucking up water down there. This will work well for Austin too. He can ride his scooter down there, which means I can get it out of the kitchen and away from the back door!
I work tomorrow, then Sunday, I need to get Taylor's birthday cake made. We're having the guilt free orange pineapple one again from Spark Recipes. Its so yummy! We'll be having it again mine in December. Any reason to have this cake, I'm taking it!
Have a great night everyone!
