I have a pal that finally…FINALLY got all of the extra home invaders out on their own! Yes, the last son entered the Navy and the last daughter rented her own place. Even the extra brother in the basement packed up and adventured off to South Korea!
S and her Hubby began enjoying their home all to themselves for the first time. They pulled up old carpet to expose beautiful, original hardwoods and laid new carpet in another area. S even bought herself a real coffee table. She insists that she has never had a coffee table in her 40+ years of life. Her home is looking beautiful! But then, as we all know, the inevitable happens…
As soon as she laid that new carpet, two grandsons held a birthday party at her home with over 20 people eating cake and ice cream. A daughter bounced back and made the living room her oasis. Then to top it all off, a close friend went on a much deserved trip and left their two small, yipey dogs in her care.
S, you are a good lady! Santa will bring you plastic carpet runners and commercial grade tarps for Christmas!
