Whoa, you're wondering....exlrrp.....on the second Saturday of the month? WTF, over?
Yes, once again, someone communicate with me and begged me to write a diary today. Well, of course, noblesse oblige. Its never easy for a liberal to say no when someone's on his knees in front of you begging and pleading.
Its all good because I just had my carpets put down in my upper two stories. I've been waiting for this forever. Oh frabjous day, calloo callay, with a YAbbadabbadoo for an ending. This finally exorcises the demons of the idiot who lived here before me. AT least on these two floors.
I started this years ago. Lets see now, I've built 6 closets here, cut down and rehung 5 closet doors, painted everything not moving, re did all the interior trim, which I made and stained, rebuilt the stairs, built a kitchenette, made a master bedroom closet into a full bath and made a half bath into a walkin masterbedroom closet. And then I had it carpeted. Finally. That shitty carpet gone. Every room was a different color and had different carpeting in it---now it all looks like someone had a coherent image of it. I redid all the casings and baseboard,, th casings I made myself. The whole place is painted the same color.
And its finally been Unstupided. I wake up in the morning and love to look at my placee
Behold the befores and afters:

OK, so that's what I've been working on----how about you?
