After many, many months of living among drop cloths and plastic sheeting, rugs were placed on the newly refinished floors. And then the following phenomenon occurred:
I immediately rolled around on all the rugs to feel their softness and see their patterns better.
My oldest child came along a few hours later and rolled around on the rugs out of joy that the end of our remodeling was near.
My youngest child came home an hour later and rolled around on the rugs, pleased with having had a part in selecting them for our new home.
Afterward, the dog arrived and rolled around on all the rugs to mark them and make them hers.
We just might be related. Maybe.
