...and still I listen for the thump of the tail when I come downstairs.
And I'm sad when there's no one beside my chair while I'm reading.
But I'm happy that we had 10 wonderful years with our boy.
On another note, I was surprised at how many of you have multiple refrigerators! I was also amused by your comments on the arrangement of my fridges. But everything has to be just so around here. Oh, I don't care too much about dust, and I'd rather chat with my family than vacuum, but when I put things away, they must be where they must be. All boxes are turned the same way, all items of like kind together, spaces left when something is used, etc. Even the flatware in the dishwasher has a required order.
(These are my old refrigerators, the day after a food delivery).
I've been told I'm 2 or 3 degrees off plumb because of this.
So, I'd like you all to tell me something about your household. Tell me anything. How or even if you have things organized, what your "must do" and "must avoid" things are, anything! All of this because of a nice anonymous commenter who told me about her daughter and life in her house! You all are helping cheer me up on bad days, and I thank you.
