I tried to pull up carpet. By myself. Well, cut up one piece at a time. How'd I do?
Failed--with a capital F.
OK, caught a YouTube video of a young lady cutting up her carpet. Her, dogs had done doggy stuff on the carpet--and just had to come up.
I could relate because cats rule my chateau--they've been ill or their litter box wasn't to their liking, and beside the carpet, which was in the house when I bought it in 2008, was a light color I never liked--ya know, the carpet showed everything! :( So up it has to come.
Underneath there is some orangish reddish tile with dark freckles. I'm sure it was a really hot pattern...once, in some previous century...Yet, the more I gandered at it--one of my rooms, where my desktop PC resides, is not carpeted. This tile (or is it linoleum?) is throughout the room. Honestly, I thought the tile could be something I would buy. Why? Because the color is different, and I like different.
The orangish reddish color would be pretty all shined up, with color compliments on walls, pillows-yea, even if took me forever to cut up the carpet, I would be empowered, I got giddy and would have been giddy-er--only if the...
CORRECT carpet cutting knife was in my possession. I bought a cheapy one, OK, I spent a dollar on it. Yes, a buck. Roll your eyes. Reprimand me. Take away my Skippy's Natural Honey Roasted Peanut Butter. In my moment the surge to be empowered..
My buck utility knife marked just a line in the carpet I know so want gone. Pressed down, hard. Nothing, but a line. A cat thought the line in the carpet was fun to bat.
At least the cat was thrilled.

New Century Version (NCV)
May he give you what you want
and make all your plans succeed,
and we will shout for joy when you succeed,
and we will raise a flag in the name of our God.
May the Lord give you all that you ask for.
Start up your engines!

Remember the hullabaloo of what Y2K would do to all mankind?
A friend recently fessed up how she and her husband made provisions in their home, just in case something DID happen!
Now we are ready to step 14 years into the 21st century- those same
friends made provisions to stay home tonight with their kitties.
Headed to Inspiring Body of Christ Church, as I've done the last
few New Year's Eve for a Word, music which is almost
like being a Earth, Wind and Fire concert without the
booze, and about 4000 of my closest and dearest friends :)
Let's get this 2014 party started!
