Tips on making your house a home.
1 - Give it a name. Something like, Gardeners Delight, or Walnut Villa. Believe me, that's going to go a long way to making your house a home. That suggestion right there could be good enough, but I've got more.
2 - In addition to your standard rooms-kitchen, bathroom, laundry room, family room--make certain you also have the following rooms: Conservatory, mud room, guest room, maid's quarters, music room.
3 - Never refer to anyone in the home as "wing-nut".
4 - Hang up pictures of a spiritual nature. Or of nature. Waterfalls can really do the trick, here.
5 - Hang up pictures of your children engaged in special projects, like the pine-wood derby, or making those little knit hats for starving kids somewhere.
6 - Never use a Hibatchi inside the home.
7 - Use Pledge regularly on all wooden surfaces.
8 - Sing the hymns often. Not just at home, but also in the car, or in the presence of non-members, particularly if they are smoking, or using crude language.
9 - Show kindness to each other. Instigate a system where once a week, someone gets a ballon.
10 - Take down the sign on your front door the previous owners put up that reads "Satan Welcome Here".
