The miniature poodle of discomfort is staying with us for a week again, but she hasn’t peed inside the house (yet), as far as we know.
We prepared for our little guest by shifting furniture. We replaced our second malfunctioning TV with an ever bigger (used) one, and it came with a cabinet that fits it just right. The cabinet has its rear corners cut off at an angle so that the front is rectangular and the back half hexagonal (picture a home plate with the rear point sliced off parallel to the front edge).
The cabinet can fit in a corner, although I don’t think it’s meant to. Regardless, we put it in a corner, to the left of where our old TV was. We moved the piano to where the old TV cabinet was. We actually have a blank wall in our living room now. It looks much bigger. I wonder what Elvi did with all the photos that used to clutter the top of the old cabinet.
We did all this moving last Sunday, the day before we hosted a well-attended holiday gathering. By “we”, of course, I mean Elvi. It was easier to move all the stuff than it should have been, and a brave choice to do all that before the party.
Maybe I should have a photo to show you.
In about an hour, Elvi’s sister and her three kids will arrive from California to stay with us for a week. We will pick them up at the airport – again, “we” meaning Elvi.
Look, I can Facebook in the future:
