There's nothing like pulling up carpet in a house (where we've lived two years) only to find six years worth of dust and other fun things hidden beneath.
I could not BELIEVE the layers of dirt and dust. I felt so dirty pulling up the carpet and sub-flooring.
It. Was. Nas.Ty.
Hopefully in a few days we'll be done (meaning Mr. Air Force will be done) pulling up tack boards and staples, and then we can start laying down sub-flooring for our new laminate floors! yay!!
