I've told you before that we're getting our house ready to sell. Mom and Dad are decluttering and painting and making things look nice. Well, our living room and dining room has, I mean, had carpet. This weekend Mom and Dad started working in the dining room and look at this!
Dad started taking up the carpet where Mom's fish tank was supposed to go and this nasty stuff was under the carpet! That's linoleum on top of painted hardwood floors! So last night they took out all the carpet in the dining room and the linoleum. Doesn't it look terrible? I had to leave the room!
It's also causing lots of stress. The dining room table that is supposed to be in the middle of that picture is in the living room. Our food bin and cookie holding can is supposed to be to the right of the back door and my food dish is supposed to be close by. The water dish is also supposed to be in this room, but even if it was where it's supposed to be, you wouldn't see it. All the linoleum is out now and it stinks in the house.
Mom and Dad promised living in this mess is going to be worth it. I hope so!! My favorite places to take a nap are gone! There's furniture in my floor spot and there's crap on the couch! I think I'm going to go live with Grandma for a few months!
What do you think of the paint color? It took Mom 3 months to choose those colors. Each room was supposed to be a different color, but she said it was too much work to choose the right colors and she really liked these colors so our entire house will probably be those colors. She's not done painting the trip areas yet. She wanted to wait until all the flooring was up before she finished in case the trim got scratched or beat up. Good idea. You should have see them last night. If I could figure out how to use the camera on my own, there would be pictures of the weird positions Mom was in on the floor trying to get nails and stables out and of how hard Dad was working pulling carpet and scraping up the linoleum.
After work, Dad is going to try to get more of that black stuff off which means lots of loud noises. Luckily we didn't get the snow we were supposed to get so I can spend lots of time outside without Mom worrying about me getting too cold. I wish I could figure out how to use the phone so I could call Grandma! I'm going to go find a new napping place now.
