Did. Not. Want.

So I have ceilings. And painted walls. And maybe by the end of the day, light fixtures.

The carpet folks came today to see if the carpet could be cleaned or would need to be replaced.

It cleaned beautifully...except for one place.

The area where the water came into contact with my antique mahoghany night stand. No go on getting that stain out.

So the carpet has to be replaced.

I did not want new carpet. At least not yet. We figured we would replace the carpet when we sell the place...which will be YEARS from now. We plan to rent it out while we are overseas, hence, no need to spend the money right now.

Okay, so we don't have to spend money on new carpet, but this means we have to spend this much more time in upheaval.


Did. Not. Want.

don't stress. anything that makes the place look nicer to prospective tenants can't possibly hurt.

oh no! Sorry, but you are almost done, right?

well at least you didn't have to pay for it, right??

Can you do a patch? (Says the girl with no carpets and therefore no idea what she's talking about.)
