Chaos at the Homestead, Part Deux

It's day two of Chaos at Wormuth Manor -- our friends came over today and helped, and having a younger woman and her energetic 24-year-old-or-so son made everything go very quickly.  Within an hour, they had dealt with all of the big stuff (books, a cabinet of glassware that had to be boxed up and then the cabinet moved, all electronics unhooked and moved into the bedroom, the dining room furniture moved, on and on).  We were left with various piles of detritus to chip away at the rest of the day.  Here's where we are now:

And have a look at the yucky horrible carpet we're getting rid of!  We wanted laminate put in when we got the house, but had to cut back on expenses, so out that idea went.  If you have kids and animals, you know that a rug will not hold up under that assault for long, and particularly a lighter color. But here's where some of the stuff went:

A corner of the kitchen.  And if you look hard, you can see how I recovered the dining room chairs, although I'm pretty sure I posted a picture of that when I did it.

So, they are coming at 8 or 9 AM -- it wasn't clear to me which, but I'll be up at 6, moving the rest of the stuff. My fellow residents are escaping to school and work, while I get to supervise the installation, I guess.  I'll take pics.

Hoping you have a great week to come!
