My husband and I have a wager going at the moment.
I have a history of not putting things away as I should and cluttering up every available space – you can see the evidence for yourself from the state of our previous house:
Disclaimer – I did eventually clean all that up and I have never let our current house get quite so untidy – not yet, anyway.
My husband, on the other hand, has a demonstrated loathing of putting together flat pack furniture. The only thing he loathes more is mowing the lawn…
Given the size of our previous yard, I couldn’t really blame him.
So, we have currently have a wager in place that is testing the mettle of both of us and will ultimately determine bragging rights in this house for the rest of the year.
If I can keep our dining table clean and clear for an entire week (7 days, a long 7 days) my husband will finally put together the four remaining chairs that belong to our dining suite. A mere 6 months after we bought it.
As we reach the end of Day 2, so far, I’m holding up my end of the bargain. I’m determined to get through the week and keep the table in pristine condition. Man, I want to have my 8 matching chairs – I’ve waited long enough for them!
See what I have been forced to do here? I’ve had to mix n match chairs – oh, the horror…
So I hope my darling husband is ready to put these babies together on the weekend because I’m determined to mend my ways and prove that I can leave a flat surface clean and uncluttered.
It appears I may have already used the chair boxes for stacking purposes…oops…
Wish me luck, because with my pitiful track record, I’m going to need it!
