The Bathroom Fan Anxiety and the OMG That’s A Short Attic are really just sidebars to what I’ve been doing lately.
What have I been doing? (insert stern look here)
It’s all got to do with the slow shower drain, goes through spackling the bedroom to painting the ceiling in the stairway, and ends up with what I really want to talk about: taking out carpet. And this is all since Sunday.
You see, on Sunday DH had a friend over to watch the football. The friend brought his daughter to play with our girls, so I was sort of left at loose ends. Not a bad thing. I spent some time trying to open up the very slow drain in the shower but was unable to make progress. I hate not making progress, so to chalk up an easy win, I grabbed the spackle tub that I had upstairs and filled in the holes I recently made when fixing the fallen curtain in Margaret’s room.
For various reasons, every room upstairs, except Margaret’s has ceiling damage, so I started to scrape and spackle. I was so successful that on Monday I sanded and respackled the bigger cracks and gaps in the hallway, and today I put on a first coat of ceiling paint. Well, a first half coat since I’ve run out of paint.
So while I was vacuuming the stairs I thought again about pulling up the carpet there. After some googling I think I can totally do it. My only concern is that the stairs will now be louder as the carpet won’t be there to muffle people’s steps. Oh yeah, and I need DH to agree to it too. Details.
