Transformation

Much like wife-beater-in-training Anakin Skywalker turning into iron-lung Vader, the Flooring Project is now completed, and there is not a square inch of wall-to-wall carpet or linoleum to be found at Casa Core Dump.

Happiness.

Not having workers underfoot (or just not showing up, or showing up and then leaving to go to another job) is marvelous.

Speaking of Vader, I feel adequately prepared to go view ROTS after reading this review. It’s all about expectation management.
