This is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things!

This is like the best line ever. I watched a rerun of Everybody Loves Raymond the other night. I love that show.

Anyhow, I love when the mother (forget her name at the moment) yelled at Frank and the boys. “This is why we can’t have nice things!” They were fighting in the house or doing some other kind of nonsense. As a mother, I can relate. Kids really tear your stuff up. So if you are selling your house, and your rugrats are still pre-school, consider staging your house.

They call it staging for a reason. You don’t want people to know how you really live do you? Seriously, if you have kool-aid stains on your sofa, or there are holes in your rugs, do yourself (and your realtor) a favor and spend about $2,000 staging the most important areas of your house. You shall reap if you sow.
