Rooms for rent
I think I've mentioned in the past that my hubby and I had a houseful, with my dad (71), son (23) and daughter (20). Well, 3 weeks ago my dad basically moved in with his sweetie. They have been dating for about 5 months, but have known each other for years. Today, my son called to say he had gotten the job in Buffalo (did I know he had applied for a job?) and was planning on moving there with his fiance'......next week. So, now 2 rooms available. My daughter and I decided that we would move the office from upstairs to downstairs in my dad's old room, then we would turn my son's room into a sewing/scrapbooking/guest room. The office upstairs is right next to my daughter's bedroom, so we decided she could make that her personal "get-away" room. That way when she has friends over they can watch tv, or hang out and not have to be in her bedroom. But first....my dad and son need to actually CLEAN their rooms and REMOVE their belongings. Hmmmm, this could be a problem. My son took a load of stuff in his car today, now we can at least see his floor, but wow there is a lot more to go. He thinks he needs a Uhaul truck, I think he needs a dumpster. My dad's room looks like he could still be in there, he doesn't seem to be taking anything in there, he needs a dumpster too! Opps, almost forgot to mention that my daughter hopes to attend Cortland College in the Fall of '07. She told me tonight that she's only going to school and she hopes her room(s) can stay the same and I don't turn them into something else on her...I can't think of another use for her room(s) except maybe a playroom for the Pugs!
