“Cabin Fever?” No, but I do have a bad case of the held in the house jitters! However, with Texas weather, it’ll get better! Just give it a few days and the sun will be shinning!
To those who use or frequent a “Bed and Breakfast,” here are some items to strongly consider. DON’T REARRANGE THE FURNITURE!! PLEASE! I had a “House Rules” posted on the refrigerator. Example; If you move it put it back. If you break it, report it or fix it! These, and other similar rules were totally ignored. Even the note on the kitchen blinds: to close before leaving if you opened them, was still attached and the blinds were left wide open. The note that was placed on the blinds, just dangled on the open blind.
This is why I no longer operate a B&B! Thus, for the ones who now use it, I have placed a new sign on the refrigerator. “Should you feel the need to rearrange furniture, DO IT AT YOUR HOUSE and Not AT THIS HOUSE!” This goes for the front porch, too!!! THIS IS NOT A CAMP HOUSE!
It will be interesting to see if my wishes are received and applied in the manor that they were written???? I know my kids will adhere to them, THEY KNOW NOT TO MESS WITH MY STUFF! Seems the art of making a bed has been lost, too. YOU DON’T JUST STUFF THE TOP SHEET UNDER! Heavens, if you can’t do it right, ASK SOMEONE ON THE HOW TOs!!!
AND DON’T PUT HOT PANS OR DISHES ON THE WOOD KITCHEN TABLE! IT SCORCHES THE TABLE AND REALLY SCORCHES MY BRITCHES!
P.S. According to GRANDPA’S COUNTRY WISDOM: “Country folks know a lot of stuff that ain’t wrote down nowhere.”
