Getting spoiled

My parents came to visit us (okay, really to see Hudson) for two weeks in August. As usual, we put them to work fixing stuff around the house that we would never have had time or skill to do on our own. It was really good to see them, and we got a ton of great stuff done.

Without really even trying, it somehow got an update of its own, transforming from a dark, stark hole where Bart had his office to an actually inviting spot for living and working. It’s almost a little cruel when I think about all the effort it took to get the upstairs where we wanted it, but maybe it’s a much needed lesson about home improvement and expectations.

Being technically full-term and able to possibly go into labor at any moment hasn’t stopped the Taylors from hosting two different contingencies of houseguests over the last two weekends. It’s never too late for a last-minute visit from friends, right?
