I used to hate it when my parents had a party because that would mean a week of house cleaning and most likely a project or two to remodel their house. I vowed I'd never be like that. Never say never.
Brett and I have wanted to replace our nasty linoleum and horribly dirty carpet for some time now. When I asked him what he wanted for his 30th birthday he said..."I DO NOT want a surprise party." I had been planning a surprise party for months now but I'm horrible with surprises so I gave in and told him of his upcoming birthday party.
Back to the new floor...so we decided to rush out and replace our floor before the party. As he worked from sun up to sun down on Friday and Saturday I kept telling him, "If only you had let me have a surprise party, you wouldn't be replacing our floor...yet!"
