...give a mom a few weeks without her children,
she will decide to polish the hardwood floors.
If she polishes the floors,
she will decide to rearrange the furniture in the living room.
If she rearranges the furniture,
she will decide to patch the holes in the wall.
If she patches the holes,
she will decide to paint the whole wall.
If she paints the wall,
she will discover there is just a little paint left in the can,
so she will paint another wall.
If the other wall is painted and the can is empty,
she will decide to paint the trim in the living room.
If she paints the trim in one room,
she will need to paint the trim in the hallway.
If she completes the hallway,
she will decide to paint the door frames.
If she paints for hours instead of getting ready for her trip,
she will stay up too late.
If she stays up too late,
she will run out of light to photograph her accomplishments.
If she fails to photograph her hours of work,
she will steal an idea from "If you Give a Mouse a Cookie",
and write a blog post about it.
If she writes a post,
she will promise to post photos of the "new" living room.
If she promises...
