Weekend Update

Mermaid Girl is stalling her way to bedtime, post lights-out, post-story, post-song. Little Latke's mom took her to a klezmer festival today and she is droning "Simon Tov u'Mazal Tov" over and over, just the middle lines, "Y'hey lany y'hey lanu, uuuu v'kol Yisroeeeeelll, Y'hey lany y'hey lanu, uuuu v'kol Yisroeeeeelll, Y'hey lany y'hey lanu, uuuu v'kol Yisroeeeeelll, Y'hey lany y'hey lanu, uuuu v'kol Yisroeeeeelll..."

While she was gone RW and I took advantage of the time alone to go out to lunch and then spent the afternoon ripping up the yucky old carpet in our bedroom. And pulling out the little strips of wood along the edges. And all the scary staples.

Now we have a floor of bare formaldehyde-emitting plywood. But not for long! Soon, soon we will have lovely laminate flooring like MG has in her room. We will spend the long Thanksgiving weekend being thankful for all the money we'll save by doing this ourselves rather than hiring someone. And I will personally be thankful if our relationship survives the re-flooring process.

This weekend update will have to be incomplete because I don't even remember any more what we did yesterday. All is carpet, staples, carpet, staples, simon tov u'mazal tov, mazal tov 'u simon tov...

Good luck with installing your new flooring. It'll be a snap for a woman who can re-caulk her tub. :)

My hubby and dad just put in the laminate flooring for my daughter's room, and will be doing our son's room next week. I can't wait until we can replace ALL the carpeting in the house (think VERY very retro 70's carpet LOL)
