...and so it begins!

The Lord has provided us with the means to start our floor project, so lastnight after Aloria went to bed, we decided to take the living room apart. Aaron moved the couch and tv into the entry way by the front door and took most everything else to the basement. We put plastic over the bookcases to keep down on dust and also on the doorways to the other rooms.

We rolled up the carpet and carpet pad and took it out for's the point of no return now!

The living room was completely bare by the time we were through, and poor Aloria didn't have a clue...I just hoped that she wouldn't wake up in the middle of the night to come to us and think we moved out or something :-) Well, she did wake up, but it didn't seem to bother her. Neither did the next days events...she must thrive on chaos.

All done, and so we decided to watch an episode of Upstairs Downstairs (British minie series I rent from the library) before bed. Tomorrow would be a long day!

Wow, you guys have been busy bees! Aloria's room looks great and I'm sure the whole house will once you're done!

I agree with you about these. Heavy equipment are booming right now. You might be interested to see this site I've found. They offer a lot of heavy equipment: Caterpillar, Hitachi, backhoe loaders, excavators, and many more.
