I’m sorry I moved the antique magazine rack. My toddler was trying to absail on it.
I’m sorry we moved the big chairs around. They were facing each other, and my teen wanted to watch television after a long day dealing with his younger brothers.
I’m sorry I moved all the electronics on top of the mantle and took the batteries out of the phone. The toddler likes pushing buttons. The phone ones especially.
I’m sorry there’s a new brown stain on the brown sofa. It’s chocolate. (I’ll try to get it out, but…)
I’m pretty sure the bedside lamp, garbage can, and back door latch were broken before we got here. I’ll try to fix the lamp, it might just be a burned out bulb.
And I’m so sorry about the sand. Everywhere.
I’ve set up a rinsing station in the front yard and the bigger boys are pretty good about showering thoroughly, but there is still sand everywhere. Especially in the kitchen sink.
Everyone is really happy, we found new jingle shells for my collection, and i love the cordless blinds you have installed since last we visited and i want to get some for my place the next time we upgrade. Where did you find them?
(If I remind her we’re family, she’s less likely to ban me, right?)
I feel like I’m living the Worst Guest Ever episode, only I’m the guest.
The big boys were gone all day at an amusement park with cousins, so 9 yr old asks me to tuck him in. Since who knows how long he’ll still ask/ allow tucks, I climb the super steep staircase into the sleeping loft… and smell something burning.
The child had put a blanket over the lamp for a night light… and then left it on all night & day.
When he saw the burnt/ melted patch on the bulb and blanket, he burst into tears.
If anyone is playing bad guest bingo, can you tell me what squares we haven’t hit so I know what to expect between now and Saturday morning? (My husband did the “turn air conditioner on without making sure the windows are shut” our first night, so that’s another one you can check off the list)
… going to go message my cousin and ask if she wants cash or should we replace the blanket ourselves. Sigh.
Oh, you poor thing! So far, none of the mishaps have been of your doing and you’ve been the one to “put out the fires” so to speak.
Rather than have confessed to your cousin about the blanket and how it came to be, I would have just purchased a new one that was comparable and told my cousin the other suffered from an accident (rather than mention it was burned…eek!).
