Flooring Woes

I don’t even know where to begin with this one. Remember when Maximus almost died, and I was all, “Oh…that’s sad. I’m so glad he’s alive!”? So that wiped out our bank account. Yay. And then remember when my dining room looked like this? Dining room

I’ll give you one guess who did it. His name starts with N and ends with Emesis.
