Two months ago...

I tried to convince The Boss Lady that we should just get rid of ALL of the carpet in our house. It is all beige, it is all stained, thanks to dogs, cats and kids and some of it is 24 years old. She now claims not to remember that conversation.

Twenty minutes after she got home from her business trip, The Boss Lady suggested that maybe it was time to ditch the nasty carpets and either stain the concrete or lay down tile in the rest of the house.

Less than one hour after she said that, our bedroom looked like this:



There are no before pictures. I wanted to strike while the iron was hot and while the wife was onboard with my home renovation idea.

Here are a couple of pictures of me pushing the giant mass of bedroom carpet, that I named ScuzzBall, to the front door.





By the way, a little advice for anyone considering home renovations, ALWAYS be friends with the guy down the street with a giant remodeling dumpster in front of his house

ScuzzBall is inspirational. We need a ScuzzBall in our lives, but not until I find a guy down the street with a dumpster. The cost of having that taken away by the trash haulers would be prohibitive.

If you don't have a dumpster, why not dump it off at your local frat house??? You know I would.
