Didn’t Get the Memo

April 10th, 2015 · 1 Comment

It is highly recommended that you straighten up your house before selling.  And remove visual distractions, like Spider-Man blankets.

Repeat…no visual distractions, like Arizona Cardinals football blankets.  Or a bra on the bed.  Or wolf bedspreads.

Please turn off the TV, clean the ceiling fan blades, and unknot the curtains.  Yes, we see you, Mr. Socks, sitting on the bed.

Please remove kisses and frosting on the windows.  And maybe remove the mirrors from around the bathtub.

Please remove the vacuum, the shelves (with full encyclopedia set) blocking the window, the blanket blocking the other window.  And the bicycle, the wind chime, and the dream catchers.

Please turn off the TV.

Please remove the dogs.
