the sock graveyard

I recently returned home from a month-long trip away to find many new additions in my house. The first was a huge mound of socks piled high in the bedroom. I laughed about it to my husband. "Well, at least they're clean," he responded.

I also found an enormous mess of laundry lying pell-mell all over the three-year-old's room. (That too was clean!) And there was more rotten food in the fridge than you can imagine.

Another surprising addition was a mass of gnarly weeds growing in every corner of the yard--making our house look a bit like the Herdman's.

The least unpleasant addition was a new flat-screen television.

What can a woman expect when she leaves the house for one month in the care of a busy working man!
