Benefits Of An Open Floor Plan

After Hu-Dad rearranged his study and moved his desk from the center of the room, we have discovered one of the biggest benefits of an open floor plan.

The wide open space in the center of the study has become the indoor wrestling ring of choice. Just as Hu-Dad is getting really distracted by and focused on his busyness, we break out an entertaining game of body slam.

For some odd reason, Hu-Dad suggests that we take our matches outside sometimes rather than keeping him entertained indoors. Why would he do that when we give him an option from focusing on that boring busyness of his.

    I imagine Boom Boom games is a daily event. I love your bass woo! And I’m so glad you’ve all found a nice wrestling wring for your indoor activities! Enjoy your day beautiful Herd!

    It’s very strange that Hu-Dad makes the herd go outside to do their wrestling matches(LOL)! If I were TRYING to work with all that going on-I wouldn’t get anything done BUT I would sit and laugh at their antics!
