This morning again she didn't realized it was closed and ran into it but at a much slower pace so didn't do any damage. (this is good as DH just repaired the door day before yesterday).
As I was having a lovely visit on the phone with my mom I told her about the door. Her idea put something on it so she can see it's closed. Moms are great people with great ideas!!
So that's what I did. We now have 'screen savers'.
I'm hoping that DH doesn't mind or think they are too tacky...
But since he is the screen repairman it may be okay.
a little birdPS. I should add that these are little satin ribbons that I hand stitched in place. A clip of a thread and they can be removed without any damage to the screen. :-)
