Life with Trenchy

Since it has become clear that the holes in our living room floor are going to be with us for awhile, we've decided to make the best of it. Here are just a few of the wild adventures we have planned for Trenchy.

  • Fill the holes with water and host a mud wrestling tournament.
  • Build a castle on one side of the living room, complete with a drawbridge. Perhaps invite a small alligator to live in the moat - just to keep out the pillagers.
  • Film our own reality show. Call it "Stupid, No-Good Homes: Holes Edition."
  • Play a killer game of hide 'n' seek.
  • Open a spa featuring mud mask facials.
  • Indoor pool party.
  • Human Whack-a-Mole!

Any ideas? We're taking requests.

"Human Whack-A-Mole"


Why do I get the feeling that Miles would be alllllll over that???

Sorry for your pain, little sister. That really really sucks.

I can't even believe your misfortune:( you need to call that Holmes guy from HGTV. Also, you could play tug of war...

Shari said...

I'm good for a game of mud volleyball...can we possible expand the trench a bit to make enough room for a good hard spike???

Post a sign, "Here there be Dragons!"
I feel your pain - but what a great attitude!!! You're an example to us all!

Shari, heck yes we can expand it. The plumbers probably already wanted to do that.

Lynne said...

This takes "Bloom where you are planted" to a whole new level!!

Sara said...

Why not just build an indoor lap pool? You're halfway there and who needs a living room anyway?

Hasn't anyone ever told you not to name things because then you get attached to them? 'Cause I'm SURE this is exactly what will happen with Trenchy.

You're right, Rachel. I'm definitely experiencing some level of Stockholm syndrome with Trenchy. He's been holding us hostage for 2 weeks, yes. But he's also so giving! I haven't had to clean the living room or cook much in the last two weeks. That's worth something, don't you think?

My vote is for a reality TV show. Something like "Sweet Home NOT Alabama" or "There's Whole Place Like Home". You could also go with "A River Runs Through It" or "Just Go With the Flow". Don't you just hate personal perspective?
