Mistreatment Partay...

The Nester is hosting a mistreatment part-ay! Some of my blogland friends have seen this post already.

I wonder if there are blog rules that say you CAN'T post on something twice. If so this will satisfy my rebellious need to break the rules.


This is our playroom where we spend hours upon hours shooting aliens, playing guitar, dancing and playing a few rounds of tennis.

It was in bad need of some TLC.




So I did some organizing but I wasn't too happy with it. NOT happy Bob, not happy! Can anyone guess what movie I'm quoting?


And then I followed up with a mistreatment. Some of the fabric is literally hot glued together.


Want to see what happens to kids that watch too much TV?







I hope it's reversible.

Thank you for visiting my mistreatment post today.
