Life is just a bowl of pork chops.

Nothing special, informative or groundbreaking.

Some before shots....

Here's some of the first pics we took of the house. Dining room with all the gone.Dining room into living room...notice the carpet.Carpet gone.



I lost a night of work on the house last night due to dart league and the Phillies winning the World Series...which I should totally do a post about cos I have some great pics.
So we headed back tonight for more. We actually got most of the wallpaper down in the Dining Room. There's just the paper behind the pipes and radiator. I work on that tomorrow while I hand out candy to the trick or treaters that I really hope we get. I love Halloween.

Here's some pics.
Here's TQ working.
Aside from that, tonight we also pulled up the rest of the tack strips that were left from the carpet pull-up.

So as Mr. Dave has mentioned several times, I have not been doing anything with this blog lately. There has just been nothing to write about. Now since my manpanion (TQ) and I have bought a house, I will be writing about that.

We got an awesome house in a great location BUT of course it requires some work...I will attempt to document some of that here. I'm not going to say all that much tonight tho...I'm too tired from ripping up carpet and ripping down wallpaper. This is the carpet after it was ripped up...on top of the carpet mound is our new cat, Nico NoNo. She came with the house (with a different name, of course...who else but TQ and I would name a cat something so ridiculous).
This is the mound of wallpaper that we tore down tonight.

Also tonight, TQ installed a new programmable thermostat.

Here he is working on it.Here is the finished product.

Ok, must sleep now.
