There's a hole in the carpet dear 'liza

We've decided to replace the floors in the bedrooms. Well, maybe I should start at the beginning. We started repainting the bedroom 2 weeks ago and after moving furniture found water damage from the neighbors leaking...something (tub?). So we moved into the boy's room. THAT was a pain. It's smaller, but we actually like it better, "let's stay in this one." "Okay!"

And then I started smelling it. That horrible stench. The previous owner had a cat and apparently kept this cat's litter box ON CARPET! And the carpet reeks of urine. It is so disgusting! I kept complaining to Hubby and tried bleach, lysol, febreze, everything. Want to know how to get rid of the smell of pet urine? Last night I finally got fed up and cut away a good chunk of the offensive material, vacuumed up the old litter remains, and dumped it in the trash. I'm ripping all of it up today. We can sleep in the living room. Nevermind that with doctor appointments and the boy's birthday I have no time to rip up and lay flooring, but since when has that stopped me? I am determined to do this by Saturday's end. So I went to Lowes to look for our flooring and they stopped selling it! So we have to pay $200 more to have the same look of our floors throughout the whole house. But I don't care. I'm so sick of cat pee and carpet and I'll pay anything.

And my husband wonders why I'm not a cat person....
