Right now, Mom is getting a new kitchen floor installed thanks to us. Originally when Mom and Dad bought the house last summer, every room had wall to wall carpeting - YUCK!!!! Mom and Dad expected to redo the floors in the upstairs bathroom and the kitchen, but the downstairs toilet intervened and backed up the very first weekend in the house. Thankfully the insurance paid for that, but would only pay for carpeting in the half bath/laundry room and in the basement, which is what was originally there. The vinyl underneath was UGLY!!! Now the walls are a light yellow with navy blue carpeting. Upstairs in the kitchen we had a blue berber carpet that was ok, but in a kitchen? Anyhoo, after Thai joined us, there seemed to be a LOT of puddle accidents in the kitchen- so many that the original Dachsie Bot wore out!!! Then we got Mom a new one for Valentine's Day, and it has been hard at work keeping up with us and the kitchen and living room. Well, Mom had enough. If a tax return was in our future (and it was) it would be used for home repairs and a new ceramic tile kitchen floor!!! See Mom, we had your best interests at heart!!!
Anyway, Dad and Sistine Steve are laying the tile today and will maybe grout tomorrow so Mom and cook again. We have been banned to the front porch since Thursday, but Mom stays with us. Today we are staying inside, to help Mom photograph Dad's butt!!!!
Cat crap and butt barkers (just like Captain Frankie would say)- the kitchen and the floor right in front of the front door (which is also getting ceramic tile) had the UGLIEST linoleum for floors. Mom took photos but we aren't sure if we should post them, in case the ugliness could cause canine eye problems. At least the backer boards are down to hide these horrific sites from our delicate eyes.
