Home Decorating with Mrs. Jones

     If I tried to put a label on the decorating style of our home it would have to be Shabby S#!%. That said, there are two things in our home that I think are worth sharing with you.

1) The urinal.

     Ariel came home from work a couple of years ago, on what he probably remembers as the happiest day of his life, with a urinal held tightly in his grasp.  Upon installing it he remarked, "Finally, the luxury and decadence of a public restroom in my very own home".  Ladies, trust me, even if your husband hasn't said so  yet, he wants a urinal.  Let him have it.  You'll enjoy never having to wonder if someone forgot to lift the seat.    Fellas, you will be the envy of all your friends if you treat yourself to this one thing.  Ariel has received such positive feedback on his urinal ownership that he has considered becoming a urinal sales and installation specialist!  Little Aston defined himself as all grown up the first day he was able to reach the urinal to do his business.

2) The chalk board wall.

Even the baby likes it!
     What a blast!  Countless hours of entertainment plus a great place to put reminders.  I just saw in Better Homes and Gardens Magazine that chalkboard paint is now available in a rainbow of colors.
Wishing Enzo a happy 10th

     So there you have it, my two cents on home decorating.  After years of reading  mountains of home magazines, watching countless hours of HGTV over at my sister's house, and putting together two apartments and three houses, this is what I've come up with.  Let your men pee standing up and let your kids draw on the walls. Enjoy.
