Gooey Mess...

I woke up this morning at around six AM to the noise of my oldest playing in the refrigerator. He just turned three last December and is all gungho on doing everything by himself now. I guess we use the phrase "Big Boy" to much. When I finally pulled myself from the soft comfort of my bed, I stumbled my way to the growing noise. When I rounded the corner to the kitchen I noticed the floor was damp. I flipped on the light and that is when I found them...

My oldest, sitting there with such and innocent look upon his face, and my youngest covered in strawberry syrup! See my oldest in a fan of strawberry milk, but I would have to say this was a first.

I asked, "What is going on out here?"

In the sweetest voice I have ever heard from him, he answered, "What? You told me I had to Share." he flashed those long lashes at me, and smiled that toothless grin. His brothers light blond hair was a soft shade of pink and his blue footy PJ's were drenched. The bottle of syrup, laid empty in front of them, and the cabinets with in a two foot radius were speckled with gooey red hand prints.

I knew the day was going to start off with a bang, I just didn't realize what kind! After I cleaned the boys and redressed them, I headed towards the kitchen. With a huge sigh, I began to wipe the syrup up. I still am not sure if the kitchen floor will ever be clean of the stick residue, but the kitchen was the least of my worries. As I finished I made my way into the living room where the boys were playing quietly with their monster trucks. I sundered over to them and through myself on my sofa. And there it was. More gooey hand prints all over the brown fabric. I about lost it. What else had they touched? I ripped the cushions from the frame and ran to the kitchen sink. I patted and wiped the mess from the fabric one cushion at a time, then headed back into the frame to wipe the arms down as well.

I had bought my sofa and love seat from no one other then The Home Center. I have to say, by personal experience, that teflon is awesome! Kitchen floor is still questionable, but the sofa turned out as if it never happened. With in fifteen minutes each cushion was in perfect condition, and that is amazing. I mean, I am talking about one of those extra large family size bottles of syrup, and at least half, I'm guessing, was on the sofa. So, any of you out there with children, come on in and talk to us... I would like to help save your fabric, so you do not have to worry about a gooey stain lasting forever.

Oh That Weather..

Grant County residents!!! Are we all enjoying the rain?

The last two days we have been blessed with a thick layer of gray laced moisture. You know, I was informed that yesterday in the Seattle and North Bend, the weather was beyond perfect. Looks as if we have traded place-- at least for a time. But don't fret, the sun will be back soon. It looks like the sun will reappear by Wednesday or Thursday!! Knock on wood!

I would like to say that the change is nice, well as long as it doesn't stick around to long. But here at The Home center the rain is washing away - old pricing! Soon, the new add will be up and ready to accommodate everyone!

With a little pleading and a nice smile, I was able to get a sneak peak at our new add! And to say the least, I was blow away! The prices for the month of March are spectacular!! Bedroom groups are at a new low- prices that are eye popping! There will be a special deal on hand picked, solid wood, dining tables, sectionals, and who out there is looking for an entertainment center? Well, look no further, you may have just found the one you have been searching for, and I bet you it will be right in your price range.

Are you wondering why such great deals are lighting up our showroom floors this coming month? Well, I won't keep it a secret any longer--- It is our huge ANNIVERSARY SALE!! Last year in March we had smashing deals, but you should see the prices for 2009! You won't be able to believe-- I sure didn't!

Quote of the day:

"In a moment of decision the best thing you can do is the right thing. The worst thing you can do is nothing."-- Theodore Roosevelt

About two weeks ago, on a Monday afternoon, I was able to help out a family that needed a little break. The couple came in with their four children around four PM, and you could just tell they were exhausted. As the kids enjoyed our hanging basket swings I got a chance to talk with the two. They explained that their sofa and love seat had broke down --frame snapped right inhalf-- after only two short years of use. They explained that money was tight and that they needed something that was family friendly, functional--could hold everyone and that was easy to clean.

I could definitely see what the women was talking about, because as she explained about the clumsiness and ages her family ranged in, her three year old walked up to her and ran her orange chip fingers down her tan pants. The women just smiled and scooped her up in her arms with a smile. I was please that the deals this month would help out this family so much. I walked them through the showroom and explained the warranty, frame and fabric of each piece to them. The teflon spray and even the benefits of certain items over others. After a brief test of each sofa, their eyes wandered to the back of the show room and landed upon one of our top sellers, I had suggested. The set had been marked down considerably and was perfect for their price range. The color was a deep brown and the warranty would have them clear and free of worry for years to come! I knew that this item can take some abuse, I had seen it first hand, and was sure this was truly an item that would keep them happy! A perfect fit!

After discussing the finance options and even a layaway-- they had decided to put cash down in light of how low our price was. By five the couple left the store with their four children with a content relaxed expression. They could finally breath and worry about one less thing. Delivery was set up and all was finalized.

This Saturday I received a phone call from a man. He explained that he was the customer from the other day, and just wanted to call and say thank you. That the items fit the room great, the teflon spray had already been tasted by that beautiful three year old girl, and that it was so comfortable they hated to go to bed despite their energy level. The sound in his voice and the fact that I could help them out was so rewarding. It is truly a day I will not forget!

Stop in and see us. I have said it before and I am going to say it again--- YOU are FAMILY!!
Let us see what we can do for YOU!!!
