which is why I haven't posted lately. In the busiest season of retail, we decide to install new carpet. Mr. Willow wanted the new carpet installed before our Christmas party on the 16th and what Mr Willow wants, Mr. Willow gets (most of the time). As you know if you have gotten new carpeting, it is like moving. Not only do we decide to get new carpeting throughout the house, we decide to paint (because who wants old looking walls with new carpeting). So I pack up all the smalls, and start painting. Fortunately, I had a lot of help painting. OK, so they did most of it. I only painted a couple of rooms and a hall. Thank you, Eric and Chris.
So the new carpeting was installed Monday and Tuesday. I whipped the first floor of the house into shape and Thursday we had our annual Christmas party. A good 75 adults and children sipped and nibbled and nary a drop landed on the carpet. Unbelieveable!
