The minute Phil arrived at the new house, he went straight to work and started ripping up the old carpet. What a handy man! I'm so proud of him for all the work he has already done on the house.
With the help of the other van der Wel men, we had the carpet up in no time. I cannot describe to you the smell and filthiness of the old carpet. The amount of dirt under the carpet was even more disturbing! Yuck!
We cleaned up the floors and got ready for the new carpet. Having the new carpet in is amazing! The house magically smells brand new and feels so clean and nice! It's so dreamy.
The house was instantly transformed and it's beginning to feel like my own home. Because we don't really have any other furniture (other than our dining room table and bed) it kinda feels like we are camping out at our own house. Which is really fun. It's an adventure and I'm loving every minute of it.
Also, there is the cutest neighbor cat that I have a cat-crush on. If he didn't have a collar I would want to keep him. Sigh. Every time I go into the backyard he hear's my voice and runs to greet me. He sat on my lap this morning for 10 minutes on the porch. Sigh. He's so sweet. I call him "Mistar Neighbar Cat" since I don't know his name. He's sleeping on our porch right now. I want to kiss his little cat face.
He snuck inside to say hello while the new carpet was being put down.
Isn't he so cute? I love his gray nose.
