A) It's our first year in our new home. We'd like to have it here.
B) It would be a pain to have to make sure we had everything there--proper pans, spices, etc, as well as the main courses.
Next year, if she gives us the place again, we might, although that will be the teen's last year with us before he takes off for the Army and basic training. At any rate, what we had to suffer through:
The dining room, which looks toward the living room and the screened-in porch.
The jacuzzi in the master bedroom.
The king-sized bed in the master bedroom.
The 12 year-old in the spare bedroom (two full-sized beds).
We fed bagels to ducks.
There were fountains.
There was a pool, but I never got to it. I made dinner one night while hubby brought the pre-teen down and another day, the teen brought his brother so I could try to get some work done. So there you have it--our "problem". No weeping for me, now (even if I AM behind by over 5K words with no hope of a catch-up any time soon). :P
