After learning to do this during this afternoon ...
We are finally doing this, tonight.
"This" being, the act of putting forth the first effort to update our house.
We started by removing wallpaper in our dining room.
Which we've since decided is no easy task.
Much like bike riding, when you first start out.
After I bought equipment today to score the walls, and then I bought a few gallons worth of wallpaper remover, and scrapers and sponges, Charlie and I spent six hours removing wallpaper from a four foot area.
"With all the wallpaper in this house, this will take us TEN years!" we said to each other, "There's got to be an easier way!"
Turns out, there is.
Tomorrow, after we go for a bike ride, first thing in the morning, we'll be picking up a steamer. Because now that the kids know how to ride without training wheels, that's all they want to do.
And now that we know how to get wallpaper down and are beginning to see the transformation that will take place in our house once it's gone - that's all we want to do.
See ... look!
Charlie's so desperate to get a start on this project, he's willing to improvise using our steam mop. And that is why we now love our Bissell Green Tea, a little bit more.
