My Dining Room is a Shantytown

After more than six years, we finally decided to protect the carpet in the computer room from the chair rollers with a piece of fashionable plastic. I promptly fell on my back tonight when the chair slipped on the plastic and shot out from under me. That certainly wasn't something I'd had to worry about before. I think new carpet for a small room is likely cheaper than my insurance deductible.

Eryn was more interested in the cardboard the plastic came in than the plastic itself. She was disappointed when it wasn't good for making a fort with a full roof, but I demonstrated the grace and beauty that is a lean-to. She happily took a nap in what looks like a homeless nest in the dining room.
