Finally...

a post about the house! As you know, progress has been relatively slow. This was (I am told) one of the very busiest times of year, and now that things should be slowing down there should be more time for working on the house. I'm going to keep my fingers crossed, but I probably won't hold my breath (just in case). I've been doing what I can, and one of the things I can do is work on the floors. As I said earlier, there were some gorgeous hardwood floors underneath the hideous carpet that came with the house. The only problem was, it left behind this residue that is a bear to get up. I'm not sure if it's glue or just parts of the carpet pad that kinda melted to the floor or what. One thing I do know is that it's majorly stuck on there. Here's an example:The option that seems to work the best at getting it off is Goo Gone and some good old fashioned elbow grease. That's right folks, we're talking hands and knees stuff! I'll give you a moment to recover from your shock that I'm the one doing this, and then check out the finished product. Pretty good right? Next I'll take some pics of Ty's progress in our bedroom. Slowly but surely people!
