Incoming Carpet

Wednesday will be, at long last, carpet day. Our landlady is replacing all the carpet in the house with something a little more elegant and Scotch-guarded. There's really nothing wrong with the existing carpet in the house, but there are places where it doesn't join the wall very well. Still, it's difficult to do carpeting yourself, and the landlady did just that when she installed the carpet we currently have.

The complication and challenge to having the recarpeting done is moving all of our bedroom belongings into the other rooms of the apartment. If the weather's going to be good on Wednesday, we can leave the heavy things on the deck. But if it's too humid or rainy, it'll all have to come downstairs. On the bright side, at least we have a caring landlady.
