 last night since they kept my husband at the hospital.  I had my boys start tearing up the carpet in the living room to expose my hardwood floors underneath.  I have been wanting to do it for a long time  but everytime we planned to do it somebody ended up sick or hurt so this time I said if we start we have to finish : )

They cut up about 1/3 of it that had the furniture that had to moved on it  because I wanted to get the hardest part done 1st.  After they cut it up and removed the padding we all scrubbed the floor and removed any stray staples.

Here is what it looks like husband was impressed when he got home a little while ago.
