Dear Mom and Dad,
I understand that we are in a house and that you will have projects. But the weekends are the only time you both are home. This is "us" time, not hoUSe time. Opening the windows so we can sniff you while you work outside and we sit inside is not "quality time." Yes, the fence looks good after pressure washing it, and the stained portions look really nice, but it's time to visit with us, pet us, and maintain the proper level of attention that we have grown accustomed to. Please take this into consideration with our next weekend a short five days away.
Jasper, Josie, Huggy Bear and Maggie
