no more carpet

at least not in the bathroom. for those of you who have been to my house, this picture will look a little odd, for those who have not, let me explain. We bought an older trailer 2 years ago. For reasons beyond all reason, the owners before us, carpetted the bathrooms. yes, that's right, that place where the floor gets wet everytime you take a shower, and unfortunately, when the toilet overflows occasionally, (YUCK). So on Monday, I made up my mind. I knew there was old linoleum under the carpet. No way of knowing how good/bad it would be. I decided to pull up the carpet. I've been planning on tiling the bathroom for, oh, like 2 years now!
so, after lots of heaving and pulling, up comes the carpet. then there's all those silly tackdown strips, and the staples, and nails and such. Finally the carpet is gone! YAYAYAY. Today i bought paint for the walls...a sort of ivory color, tile for the floor, slate blue and grey. Tomorrow...i'm painting... Tile after.
