Good morning! Wanted to start the day by wishing you all a Wonderful, Happy, Healthy Holiday Weekend!

Would you please share with me some of your family traditions that you enjoy during this season? What do you look forward to the most? Favorite foods?

At the moment I am working on last minute client orders while awaiting the arrival of my in-laws from VA. Will be heading out to my daughter's school for their annual holiday party sing a long to snap some photos and enjoy some delicious cookies with the kids.

Here a short essay I wrote, about what happens when the in-laws come to town. In that spirit, this week, I had to replace my vacuum cleaner, roller bar snapped off, replace and install a new gasket in the dishwasher, ( kitchen floor flooded when dishwasher was turn on) and last evening in my up stairs office, paint and dry wall spewed all over the floor as water leaked down the wall, possible cause, flashing needs to be repaired on the roof. As if on cue, we love the in-laws... the house hates them. Enjoy!


Holiday Horrors
By Wendy Badman ©2005

My in-laws from Virginia come to stay at our home for a few days each holiday season. I don’t mind, I love them dearly it’s the house that hates them.

The first year we celebrated the holidays in our new home we had an obstacle course of water buckets to maneuver around in the living room. Water cascaded from the ceiling and light fixtures for hours after my father-in-law took a shower. He blamed the water damage on the shower curtain and caulk around the tub. My husband replaced the curtain and re-caulked the tub.

My vacuum cleaner broke hours before my in-laws arrival the following year. Pine needles and mud littered the carpet from the tree my husband dragged in from outside. I was able to borrow a vacuum from the repair shop but not before my in-laws arrived. That evening water poured out of the light fixtures and ceiling fans in the living room not once, but twice. My in-laws agreed to take baths for the rest of their visit and we decorated the buckets with tinsel. The next day the arm of a new kitchen chair was accidentally broken off by my grandmother in-law shortly before a small oven fire ignited while the oven was in the self-clean mode.

Last year the computer crashed while my father in-law played a game of hearts. A kitchen cabinet door fell off its’ hinges and the ice maker on the refrigerator door broke. Each time someone would open the door to the fridge ice would spill out all over the kitchen floor. Water buckets were put in the living room as a precaution but not needed. Our security alarm malfunctioned in the middle of the night but only woke up the baby.

My mother in-law was supposed to come up for a visit in May. The house rebelled at this news. Water cascaded through the ceiling in the living room and into the basement when a valve to the washer machine failed. That month the security system alerted us to intruders that did not exist and the seal to a toilet broke causing a stench like you would not believe.

In August the in-laws were scheduled to come up for the annual family reunion. During the heat wave the fan motor to the central air conditioning unit heated up and burned out. The kitchen phone died and a toilet overflowed sending water cascading into the kitchen.

Our house does not play favorites; it misbehaves for my family too. During one visit a power surge blew out all of the circuit breakers and sizzled an answering machine. Then there was the time when the house filled up with smoke because the flue to the chimney was not open when my dad started a fire in the fireplace. Water spewed all over the bathroom floor, walls and mirrors when my sister attempted to take a relaxing bath in the jacuzzi and the fire department showed up one evening while she was cooking dinner for us because the smoke detectors were activated.

One thing for sure, we may have a lot of holiday horrors but they are all memorable, we love our family it’s the house that hates them.

Hello Badman Family!

We missed seeing your card this year and hope you enjoy the holidays with the family. We have our hands full with the two new dogs and keeping up with the energy levels that only a Husky can produce especially when there are two in the house:)
Looking forward to a New Year filled with health and happiness for each of you...
Love,
Marilyn, Johan, Mike, Greg and the dogs
