Who We Are

Tuesday, November 12, 2019


Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie!  Yesterday, Cam and I were finally allowed downstairs!  It's about time!  I raced down first to inspect everything!

"Maggie?!?  How does it look?!?"

I was already exploring!  Once we had a good look around, we got down to business.

Me and Cam, working in the Studio

OK. Pickle Business.  Trust me, Pickle Time is important!!!

Apparently, Mom and Dad updated the flooring in the Studio rooms (to match the upstairs!), Dad's office, and the bathroom. And the HVAC room.  That meant they had to clear everything out of those rooms then put it all back. Only that's not really how we do things at Ao4 Headquarters -- they did a massive culling of stuff, Mom painted a couple rooms (with more to come, apparently), and they did a reorganization. I can't believe they didn't let us help!

"Seriously, Mom!  You know I'm good at this kind of thing!"


At least the last part - reorganizing - wasn't quite done, so I was able to help.

"Mags?  What are you doing in there?"

Or not.  I mean ...

"And how did you get in there?"
"Are you saying you don't want my help?"

She hinted that Cam might be helping more than me.  WHAT?!?!  How is that possible?!?  Check her out:

"Buckingham Palace is back where it belongs!!!  YAY!"

How is that "helping"?!?  I don't get it.

Anyway, I helped in the closet for a while, then Cam and I did some more exploring:

"The workout room is the same as before!"

Good!  I liked my "jump on the treadmill then dive bomb Cam" maneuver from before!  I'd hate to lose that to a re-do!

Ah!  Speaking of things like that, even though Mom moved her big sewing table around, I can still do a sneak-attack by going through one of the cubby holes!  Take a look:

"I saw that one coming, Mags!"

Mom and Dad are still moving stuff around, but the big things are done.  I'm glad we're getting back to normal.  Cam and I really like routine!

"I really like this, don't you, Maggie?!?"
"I still say my organization and supervision skills could have been put to better use ..."

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher 


  1. Wow...your parents did a great job girls!! Although, I don't understand why they don't put your skills to better use, Maggie BOL!

  2. The new floors sure look good, but I can't BELIEVES they didn't let you help!

  3. Our mom would like to come help your mom organize her fabric stash. She said something about how much fun it is to pet all the fabric. We thought she just like petting us. What is up with petting fabric? Do you girls know anything about it?

  4. Your mom has a lot of fabric. You are going to have a lot of supervising to do while she quilts.

  5. Wow how nice. We are hearing talk around here about redoing flooring and carpet
