|Pulling pesky carpet staples|
Our summer term begins in May. Our first lesson is the Real World chore of pulling up carpet: prying up nail-embedded strips, pulling up pokey staples, picking at crusty chunks of foam, and vacuuming a sandbox worth of sand. I used three vacuum bags--the dirt is that dense.

Taking down wallpaper cured me of ever wanting to put it up; pulling carpet has cured me of the temptation to permanently cover my floors in anything not able to be mopped. Madelyn worked with me for three days. She even *asked* to do more after I was ready to quit on Day 2.
