While I was out on Thursday night, Phil and Sarah took down the crafting counter that my dad built for us, and emptied the room of everything except supplies, tools, my desk, and the computer.
|Grace helped my dad install the counter on February 13, 2005.|
That's my arm you see. It still hurts. I have numerous other bruises on my arms, too.
Earlier this week, Phil and I went to pay for our new carpet. We had questions about the price because it was about $100 higher than what we had calculated in the store, and we wanted to know why. The salesman started by saying there was a $97 charge for installation . . . whoa! It was supposed to be $39 because we chose a StainMaster carpet. We stood there and discussed that with the salesman who helped us initially. Well, it turns out we did NOT choose StainMaster. In the end, we chose a different carpet, this time a StainMaster. It's a better quality carpet, and we ended up paying $4.00 more than the price for the other one. We're still mystified about the original mix up, though.
The good news is that Sarah and I finished painting the walls on Friday night. I have taped off the windows and hope to paint those tomorrow, as well as taking the old carpet out so I can easily paint the baseboards. Sometimes it seems this project will never end.
