Our house is tiny, so although I’m excited that Chris’ brother has come to visit, I am less-than-thrilled with the current living situation. This is how the corner of our living room is now set up
We don’t have a spare bedroom, and we are already strapped for closet space, so I guess it’s actually lucky that we had a wardrobe bar (it had been housed in a storage shed). We’ve set it up right in front of the front door, with his suitcase on the floor with pillows and blankets folded on top. It’s actually quite concise. Just wish it wasn’t blocking the front door (don’t worry – we have a side door entrance, which is actually the door we use most common anyway, so it’s not like our only entrance is blocked!)
And I’ve been reaping the benefits of having a couple extra people around! Today, in addition to helping with some chores around the house, they both pitched in to help some with dinner! Tonight we had breakfast for dinner!
Chris was in charge of hash browns, Adam did the eggs (not pictured), and I took care of toast & (protein) waffles! I topped my waffles with tons of freshly sliced strawberries & just a bit of whipped cream (yum!) By the time I got to the toast I was all carbo-loaded up so I ended up just having a couple bites. It was worth it though – true bliss!
In other news, an old friend that I haven’t talked to in 4 years found me on facebook today! It was so good to catch up with her – we lost touch when I moved from Austin to Florida. It’s hard to maintain friendships when I’m moving all over the country every couple years! Hopefully once we’re done in Arizona we can really put roots down somewhere!
But for tonight – I’m off to share the couch (and TV) with two boys….I see sports in my future….or maybe one of those JackAss/WildBoys shows. exciting
