What We've Been Up To Lately

Well, I have to apologize to everyone for not keeping up with the blog. We've been busy. I'm talking 10-12 hour days (for me) working on the house every day. I'm physically exhausted every night. But, I'm happy to report there's progress. Wanna see some pictures? Well, here's some before and after pics:
Living room before:

Removing the carpet and padding:

Yes, it really was a matter of peeling back the carpet, tearing up the padding, and then scraping the yucky green padding that had fused to the floor.'s the payoff! {By the way, this picture is misleading. Matt scraped a 5 foot by 5 foot patch of floor. I did the REST!! :}

I still have a little bit left to do. On the agenda today is cleaning up the glue from the glue down wooden tiles in the front entry-way:
Yeah, it is a matter of scraping each little circle up and running Goo Gone over it with a micro-fiber cloth. Not difficult, just a lot of work. Oh, and one last thing for today: remove the last bit of carpet---in the hallway.
And paint. The trim in most of the rooms need painted. And the ceiling in the den needs some touch-up. There's always something more to do. Hope you enjoyed my little update. I'll try to do better and keep ya'll posted on what we're doing. It is hard, because I know I'm making progress. It just seems like it is taking forever! Anyways, hope everyone is doing well. I'm looking forward to our "mini reunion" in a couple weeks in ID/UT. I'm planning on driving, so we'll see how that goes.

Talk to you guys later.
