Options, oh options, why so many options. Badges, Badges, we don’t need no stinking badges! Oops sorry I slipped into a WKRP time warp there. At least they didn’t have to do any packing at WKRP. Jennifer could just flirt her way out of any problem. If only that were the case for me. Needless to say, I am drowning in packing and have decided to ignore it and post instead.
I thought you’d be interested in one design option. Our friend, Andrew did a napkin sketch for us. He is our architect friend who has such a lovely house himself. I would trade his house for my leaky urinals any day. I’m not sure he would go for that deal. He is much too savvy for that old one two urinal switch scam.
His proposal is that we do some living in the gym. We would have a big fireplace on the south facing wall flanked by large windows with a walk out on one side. We would have an open plan living and dining space. The kitchen would have a large island in the centre. We are looking into a commercial range with two ovens, 6 burners and a grill. We are also thinking of a double fridge. We are hoping to have lots of friends and family visit and they all need to eat!
We are going to keep the stage. We’ve been talking about having a talent show once a week. Each member of our family will have a week to hone a talent, and present it. My husband is a very good magician, juggler, guitarist, and is also working on his stand up routine. He is all over this talent show! My kids think they are good at everything so they are also looking forward to it. I’m not as confident as the others. All of my talents don’t present that well. For example, I am a very good multi-tasker. And an avid reader. I’m also really good at talking on the phone with my girlfriends. And don’t forget the bargain hunting. Somehow I have to work that all into my bit.
That’s all we have so far on the design front; a fireplace, open living space, some windows, a stage, and a talent show. We are also thinking about bedrooms, some bathrooms and other stuff. But I must get to my packing. This house isn’t going to pack itself, you know.
