Flying carpet?

I got a lot done on the house today. I did a deep clean on the bathroom that looked like it hadn't been cleaned in a year or two and pulled up the tack strip in the two bedrooms that I took the carpet out of. The carpet layers must have thought this carpet might fly away since they used glue AND staples to hold the padding down as well as used 4 inch nails to hold down the tack strip. I cursed them the whole time! Sadly I will have to have carpet in one bedroom since it was an add on and there is only plywood. Bring on more tack strip and glue!

Alas, after I get all moved in, I have to renovate the apartment I am living in-my work is never done, I just want to get away from it all sometimes.

Here are some of the oddest of the odd stories I found on the internets today:
This story is too sad to be true, this story is too good to be true, this one makes me not want to swim ever again, and this one reminds me of Grandma's cookin.

I recently read a book called Feel the fear, and do it anyway-it was amazing. My friend Ginger told me about it and while I had never been big on self help books, this one changed my mind about a lot of things. It teaches you how to stop negative thinking patterns and reeducate your mind to think more positively. Even if you aren't a negative person but just live or work with one it's worth reading. Check it out, you won't be disappointed. I need to re-read it in fact! I might have not been so down on the carpet layers today!

This toy drove me insane as a child and now it is online!

Hope everyone has a good hump-day :)

I'm still asking myself why the carpet layers would put carpet in our bathrooms. Especially after the commode broke. That's all the manual labor this chick can handle. How you do it, I do not know.

The Rubiks Cube, good Lord. And no way to pull the stickers off to cheat. :p

I suggest you now clean the inside of the fridge
