I Had a Dream

See I had this idea. I had this wonderful romantic idea that if I ripped up the carpet in my house that there would be hardwood floors that I could refinish (or at the least paint--'cause that's kind of popular right now) and my carpet would be gone and my life would be wonderful.

And y'know--it didn't start out so bad. A corner of pretty nice old wood planks.

And then we came to. . .

Oh no. . .

Patches of tacky old crazy blue linoleum.

You know, it's not so bad, maybe we can just scrape up those patches and sand them down a little. It shouldn't take too mu--  

A HUGE hole cut out of the floor filled in with 2x16's. . . ?  and plaster of paris. . .?

Curse you wretched home-unimprover who did this to my floor who know's how long ago. 

My dad wasn't really interested in refinishing hardwood, and now I have to admit defeat and go along with his plan: a new sub-floor and fake flooring.  We only have two more years here after all--it's more practical.  So there goes my crazy idea. 

Speaking of crazy ideas:  Who's idea was it to fill our homes up with all kinds of unnecessary furniture--like couches?  Seem's like my boys would be perfectly content without any.

They could run circles in that room all day.

Wow. It's really coming along. I can't wait until I can see the finished project. Too bad the hardwood floors didn't work out, but your new ones will be just as beautiful.

Haha, sad day. But I know that you will make it look incredible! It seems like forever since I've been over to your house, I can't wait to see everything!!

Oh yeah, that's what my husband looks like. I almost forgot!! And of course you know that big hole in the floor is where they used to bury the dead bodies. Duh.

The piano move was not that bad.
