You Won't Believe Me
Supposedly there is a certain serenity to be savored in an uncongested home. But I have a "stacks of stuff" decorating theme. Not slob, per se, but nothing has a place. Or rather, I believe I'm the only one who knows all the places. And so I think you can see where this line of reasoning is going.
My husband has another opinion. And while we disagree on where the fault lies, one thing we do agree on is that we all feel better when the house is in order. I've been trying to do that. Frankly, I don't have much to show for my efforts.
While I promised myself I would not idle away time online until I had the clutter under control -- I had to stop in to share a funny.
Cooper is reading. We are fortunate to have benefactors with boys just older than ours who live just up the street. They send us their used books and puzzles. The newest installment is very fancy -- I must add -- and we are enjoying them very much. I especially like the included parent guides that help you conduct effective comprehension tests for your child. Anyway... one of the questions instructed, "Make up a sentence of your own using the word clap." Clap, more accurately applause, was a word from the story.
Cooper wasted no time and said, "I caught the clap."
