I loved both of these shows but I really liked "While You Were Out" because I love surprising people. I also like being surprised (although it rarely happens.)
The husband left to go watch his beloved Huskies take on LSU-- leaving me home alone for the weekend. I decided it was the perfect time to tackle an enormous project (because I'm crazy like that.)
You see, I have a vendetta against carpet. And I understand why some people like carpet, but to me, it never feels clean.** Our little house has all original hardwood floors (it was built in 1942) except for one room where its hidden by carpet: the husband and my attic bedroom. I hate that carpet. Nasty nasty nasty stained ancient stuff that NEEDED to go! The perfect time to rip it up? While the husband was out and my mom was free...
Oh, I also rearranged the room-- cuz why not?
As I write this, the husband is not home yet... I'll be leaving to get him from the airport in about an hour. I'm not sure what he'll think of all this... but I'll let you know the reaction tomorrow! :)
**my neighbor told me that carpet weighs on average THREE TIMES more when it's removed than when it's installed. yuck.
