swing + indoors = good good therapy

    Michele – you are fun!!

    I have been wanting to put in a swing in William's room but I am not sure we have ceilings strong enough and I assume it needs to be attached to some beam. Right?

    Warm hugs to you.

    I'm loving the swing in your office! I totally want one now. What a cool idea and what a cool space 🙂

    (I so would not get any work done though… Hmm.)

    confession: it IS hard to get work done with the swing.

    but it breaks up the monotony.

    A swing… your office always comes to my mind, you know? It's weird.. but I think I have a crush on your swing! lol

    I love swings since I was a kid… nothing could make me happier. I never thought of having one inside of my house (of course you're more creative than I am!) and I just love your idea. Actually I everything in your office.

    Cowhide name? Mooooo? lol Really? Maybe not… hide the cow? nooo.. humm.. "Horton"? Yes, I do read Dr. Seuss at least 2x a day to my kids! 🙂

    What a fun idea to have a swing in the house! I bet it's a real stress-reliever. I have the old swing from my grandparents house, and perhaps I can convince my husband to install it somewhere in our home!
    Happy REDnesday!

    TWO swings? You lucky ducky! But, I suppose with all your business that it's good therapy!

    Have a wonderful weekend.
