I just spent all of yesterday pulling up old carpet from my stairwell. I used a crowbar to pull up the carpet and underlayer, and to pry out the two sets of spikes for every step and the landing. And then I had to use pliers to pull out all of the old staples and nails. All that while in awkward positions on the steps. And to top it off, now I’ve caught a cold. Today, I have a headache and my joints ache.
It’s not pleasant being like this!
