TGIF! This has been a crazy week! We had our carpets replaced on Tuesday and Wednesday, so husband and I and our two fur babies moved in with my in-laws temporarily from Monday to Wednesday. I'm so grateful that they allowed us to stay there with the cats. Otherwise, we were looking at having to board the cats and sleep in the commotion or find a hotel room that will accept pets. Either way, it would have cost us some money, and the in-laws let us stay for free. Plus they fed us and stepmom-in-law even offered to do laundry for us! (I politely declined, but what a sweet offer).

It was a lot of work though. We had to move everything from the bedrooms into the living/dining room before Tuesday morning when the carpet guys came in to replace the carpets in both bedrooms. Then Tuesday evening after work, we had to move everything from the LR/DR into the two bedrooms. And once the carpets were replaced, everything had to go back into its rightful place! Whew! Thank goodness that husband has two brothers!

And now, we have plush new carpets. Our old carpets were stained when we moved in and after a couple more years of use, they had definitely seen better days. The new stuff is great. And best of all, it was all free! (Other than a couple lunches out, as I normally go home to eat lunch, but couldn't when the guys were working in there). Thank goodness for apartment living. For now, I love not having to worry about home maintenance costs.
