Recently I got a call from my son who was in a panic! He needed my help ! He had
moved into an apartment as a newly divorced 40+ year old. As it usually happens, he got very little of the furniture and goodies that it takes to make a house a home, so to speak. He was having a very important guest to come for a visit and he needed my "expertise" in getting the place in order! I told him , "Sure, I love to FLUFF!"......Then I began my search for items to take to begin my makeover of this typical wifeless man's place!
I only had a few days to do my magic and I knew I better get busy. I scoured all my regular haunts......thrift stores, TJ Maxx, Homegoods, and of course my attic!
I filled up my car with everything from lamps, to rugs, to pictures, accessories, plants, and room fragrance sprays! When I arrived at his apartment, he came out to help me lug everything in and he laughed and said, "Goodness gracious, Mom, I certainly didn't expect this!"
Well, I rolled up my sleeves and got my diet coke and went to work. Three hours later the transformation was complete and my son could not believe his precious little eyes. He said he did not think he was in the right place! He loved every bit of it , but most of all he loved that his mom did it for him! It warmed my heart that he asked me to help him in his hour of need and I was delighted to do it for him!
The guest came and went and he said the visit was a huge success and he felt like the KING of his castle! He said he was going to kick back and enjoy his new pad!
That made me feel even better.
Who knows I may just start my own business of FLUFFING......maybe I will call it... "Mom's Fluffing Service"...............I'm going to bed....I am FLUFFED OUT!
