After driving everyone in to school early, I went over to Lowes and purchased the tiles. The nice boy with the front end loader put them in the van for me. (Those boxes are pretty darn heavy! And I got 20 of them!)
Then I went home and pulled up the 2nd layer of carpeting. NOW I am working on the tile. I was just going to do the adhesive from the last layer of carpeting, but it turns out that it's better to go all the way down to the sub floor...sooooo I have been scraping for hours and making very little progress so far. I tried an iron (I know we have a heat gun or 3 around here, but I can't find anything in that garage!). The iron helps a little. I looked up on the internet and someone suggested vinegar. So I am currently waiting to see if the vinegar will dissolve the adhesive.
In the meantime I made these little froggy cookies for the bake sale at Gilli's school tonight. I'm hopping that the cute froggy shape will cause unsuspecting children to beg their parents for a treat! LOL
Tonight there is, as I said, Gillian's concert and Matty's ball game. I may have to give up soon and start back to work on the floor in the morning. It's hard to get things done when you have to stop and do other things all the time, but that's life with kids and ...honestly...Gillian has been practicing so hard the last few months and she's so proud...how can you not want to go?
