Good bye cat pee carpet, hello new carpet smell!
Tristan's Dad convinced us of the dire need for new carpet on our lower level. Especially in Max's room. Unfortunately, I think we had gotten used to the smell. So two weekends ago, we moved everything out of the downstairs, ripped up the old carpet (thanks John!), had the whole downstairs painted, and finally the new carpet was installed last Tuesday. It is pretty "boring" by our standards, but it doesn't smell like cat pee and I am willing to walk on it without shoes, so we'll take it!
