New Flooring

The new flooring is starting today. Last night before bed, we moved the computer desk, file cabinet, fridge and stove out from where they normally sit and everything is scrunched into the dining room. I've moved the fridge a time or two so that wasn't too bad, sides were clean and underneath not scary because sweetie spilled something under it about a year ago and he moved it out and cleaned under it.

But not the stove. That was scary - I don't think it's been moved for 21 years! And apparently I'm a messy cook. I found marbles, tinker toys, magnets and what looked like Travis' magic wand from back in the day when he wanted to grow up and be a magician. He's married now and a junior in collage so that was quite a while back when we had those kinds of toys in the house. I ended up cleaning the outside sides of the stove. My sweetie insisted on taking a picture of how bad it was but I'm not posting it. You'll have to use your imagination.

I should come home tonight after work and find a new floor in my kitchen. Living room, dining room and hall get re-carpeted next Wed. Then the bedrooms are the week after that. We are going to re-paint the bedrooms as we move stuff out. It's going to be a busy three weeks!

Oh, I am SO excited for you! That will be so nice. I can't wait to see! You have to post pictures so that we can see when it is all done.

I think you should send the magic wand to your son .. or keep it for his kids!!
we put in new carpet and paint a couple of years ago and it sure is nice!
it will be worth the 3 weeks of work and your house being torn apart.

Wow that's a lot of hard work, but it'll be so nice when it's done. It is weird and a bit scary to find all that accumulated mix mash of life's dirt behind or underneath the fixtures of our home.

You will be thrilled no doubt with all the outcome after all is cleaned and replaced.

ugh stoves are always a problem.
I always end up moving furniture all over the place to get under things to clean and its amazing what gets under there.
Have fun:)
