MIAGD: Make it a great day

“As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.”              ~ Nelson Mandela

My son, on a number of occasions, has commented on how comforting the basement is. I know the older for sons, and the tribe of foster sons, always loved the basement for watching television and gaming. 

Last Friday, I asked Griffith if he would like to use a section of the basement as his bedroom. There is 1/4 of the huge basement at all we screamed, “I would be the perfect bedroom for a teenager.”

He loved the idea. 

Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, he began the transition. Last night, I finished it up while he was at musical rehearsal.

His former bedroom, which was once the former guest bedroom, 2013-2016, and my first study 2003-2013, is now back to being a guest bedroom and television room.

Last summer, when Griffith moved in, the three dogs seemed to go through a bit of depression because the guest bedroom also doubled as their room.  The change of Griffiths arrival was both exciting, and confusing for them. Chief was the only one of the three dogs that had experienced sons in the house. 

Last night, the dogs did not even want to join me on the deck because all three were up on the bed in the new guest bedroom. They were happy to be restored to their former “Canine Corrall” another is referred to as, “the guest bedroom.”

Changing it up, now and then, can be work, but it’s always necessary, and healthy.

Make it a great day, Folks!
