OK, well, not technically. My momma gerbil, Fifi, had 3 babies last week. They join their 3 older siblings and are doing great. One is such an explorer and Fifi is always tracking him down and dragging him back to the nest....lol. And I thought Pepe and Fifi were too old to be having any more babies - just goes to show what I know! Guess I need to change my profile numbers yet again.
Friends came to help this week and we tore up the nasty basement carpet, padding, and sealed/painted the basement floor. Since it had quite the fumes and the A/C would circulate the smell throughout the house, all the birds had to be moved to my front porch, the largest kitty litter had to be moved upstairs (to the kitchen - yuch), and the dogs have been outside since Tuesday. Today I finished painting the laundry room aka kitty litter room, and the walls. Will be ready for new carpet next week, and then I can move the daybed downstairs, along with one of my sewing machines. Am very excited to set up a sewing corner in the coolest room in the house...LOL.
