Five Important Pieces of Advice

When you have a child who gets around in a wheelchair rather than in the usual way of putting one foot in front of the other, you need to be creative about your living space.

1. If your driveway is slanted towards the road at a 90 degree angle, you probably would want to move.

2. If you love throw rugs scattered here and there on your floors, now is probably a good time to remove them and give them to your mother, sister or best friend. (Possibly giving them to an enemy would be sweet revenge.)

3. If you have a vanity in your bathroom with a cupboard right beneath the sink, just ditch it and clear the space underneath the sink.

4. If you have a split level home with one room per floor, see number 1

5. If you live in a bungalow with a walkout basement, a beautiful deck, a level backyard, and an enormous sand box, laugh with delight, hug your family, and DON'T bother trying to find another house.

Edging Past Writer's Block

I didn't post last week. In fact, I haven't posted since June 20th. So, no, I haven't posted my required three posts per week. If you feel like doing the math, you can tell me how many days it's been.

So what.

I'm posting now.

Thanks for stopping by and reading this.
