Renovation: Part 2 (Subtitled: In Case You Didn't Know)

Did you know that pulling up carpet is probably one of the most exhausting things ever?

Did you know that it really hurts when you slam your finger between the floor and the pry bar you're using to get a nail out of the floor?

Did you that dog and cat pee stay in carpet pads forever?  And did you also know that when the pads get wet, they mold and create black, moldy spots on the hardwood beneath?

Did you know that there are about 10,000 staples used when putting down carpet that have to be pulled up using needle-nose pliers?

Did you know that your hands get all red, burned-looking, and very painful when you don't wear gloves while using a pry bar and needle-nose pliers?

I'm not complaining.  I'm just explaining for those of you who didn't know all those things. :)

We are not done pulling up the carpet, but will be tonight so I will post pictures in the next couple days.

Also, we FINALLY found the tile for our kitchen.  $1.10 a square foot!
