In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Victory.”
So my awesome victory was this weekend. It’s a partial because I haven’t finished, but it’s still great! I decided awhile ago to update my townhouse. I’m thinking of selling it, but even if I decide not to, it needs an update desperately.
So the other day I bought a box cutter, gloves, mask, and goggles and I decided to start taking out the carpet in my daughters room. It was much easier than I thought it would be!
Within the long list of things I want to do to update, comes a long list of money to use. There are of course some things that I’ll have to pay someone to do, but there are definitely things I can do on my own. I’m a grown ass woman and I’m sure I can handle some house update DIYs!
Anyway, back to the carpet. We used to have cats, so I’m sure you can understand my readiness to be rid of the carpet. I strapped on my knee pads (from my derby bag), put on the gloves, goggles, and mask and got to work. I learned that parts of the carpet were tacked down and parts of the padding underneath were stapled. I’m not trying to deal with those right now, haha, I just wanted the carpet gone first.
I understand that those masks are great for keeping debris and stuff out of your lungs but damn, they’re hard to breathe in!
Anyway, I did half of her room. There is furniture I have to get rid of or at least move out of the way before I can do it completely, but it’s a damn good start!
Go me 🙂
