Great point - thank you for your comment. I did NOT update everyone about the carpet and flooring, and how it went when "she" visited. Thanks to "anonymous", I shall do so now.
I decided to just get the two kids' bedrooms and the bathroom flooring done before "she" came. I allowed enough time for painting the master bedroom before the carpet guys came again to put those rooms' carpet down. Well, due to busy lives and craziness, the painting never got done before the carpet came. I just couldn't get to it. Ugh. It is still the same ugly outdated green. BUT, I LOVE the carpet! It is a lovely shade of brown - better than the OLD brown.
OH, and "she"? Well, her visit was lovely. A very nice girl - I enjoyed her very much.
