Whose idea was this anyway?

For a while now we (and by that I really mean me) have been thinking about replacing the carpet in the dining room and sewing room with laminate flooring like we have in the rest of the house. Problem number 1: the line of flooring we installed about five years ago is no longer being made. Well, the flooring is still being made, but not the same color. We don't like any of the new colors. Or the new "wood" they are carrying. So we went with another company, slightly different color next to what we already have. Oh well...

Today I moved everything out of all the furniture that has anything stored in it. Dining room question: do I seriously need all these glasses? Uh, no. Sewing room questions: do I really need all this fabric? Duh, yes. It took me 1 1/2 hours to move all that stuff out of the china hutch, the armoire (do I really need all these Christmas decorations?), and then moved all my sewing items. Oh, yes, and all that fabric. It took the guys about fifteen minutes to move all the furniture. Okay so there was one of me, and five of them. I'm giving me some credit...

My office:

The guest room:
 And the L-shaped hallway:

Whose idea was this again?

Oh, yeah. Now I remember.

It was mine...

HA! I just wanna know how you get to the other end of that hallway!!

You'll be happy when all is said and done. And hey, maybe you'll weed out and get rid of some stuff! That's always a good thing.

GROOOAAANNNNN! I so don't envy you that job! I might envy you your floors and your organized rooms when you get done, though. :) Hey, you're halfway there already! Can't wait for the 'after' pics!

Oh my! I thought it seemed a little quiet around here... now I know what you've been up to LOL! I'm sure it will be worth it in the end...

wow, that looks crazy! You are very brave and ambitious to tackle all that. Just keep reminding yourself it will be worth it when everyone is all spiffy and back to "normal."

Ugh. This is precisely why I plan on dying in my house. No moving of stuff ever.
