We Now Return to Our Regularly Scheduled Programming

Yesterday I took the day off from the whole keeping-the-house-spotless thing. It was nice. The girls happily made a mess in the playroom. I did make all of the beds and did a few loads of laundry, but I also left dishes in the sink and the coffee maker on the counter.

Did you know that people selling their homes do not drink coffee, use a microwave or even own a toaster? Our counter must be completely naked to show just how much room there is for a potential buyer's junk, so all of our stuff has to go in the garage. Well, not the microwave. We put that in a corner of the counter where it's not as obvious. And because there is nowhere to plug it in unless we drag it across the counter, we use it to store the mail and other important papers that would otherwise gather on the counters and any other unmoving surface.

Rabbits, wire coat hangers and paper. They all have a way of "mysteriously" multiplying whenever two or more are left alone together. So I'm back to work today. I have to go and empty out the microwave before the door pops off.
