I was gone on my business trip for 2.5 days. I’ve been back for a week now, but I’m still having a hard time getting back to any routine.
My husband related that while I was gone, Youngest Daughter actually missed me, for certain reasons. By dinner on Wednesday, she was asking, “When is Mommy coming back? I want some salad.”
Ha! Victory in the battle to bring fiber to the next generation!
My husband said, “Why do you want salad?”
YD: “I want to eat something crunchy. ”
Husband: “What do you think the Doritos are for? Put some of those in your sandwich.”

Here are some of the inexplicable things I discovered around the house, the day after my return.
|Lettuce that got left out all night. It COULD have been salad,|
but it became inedible. I don't like to clean up, but it seems I
have a talent for putting the food away. None of my children
seem to have inherited that talent.
|The neighbor's mail that we were collecting while they|
were away. It was supposed to be returned to them the day I left,
not the day after I returned. Oh, well.
|A stack of Youngest Daughter's math papers, |
under the dining room table.
|A defeated turkey pillow.|
|I brought this losing lottery ticket back with me.|
