9.  Tennis shoes in da house!  (the kitchen floor to be exact)


8.  Dirty dishes in da house!

Dad:  “DJ, could you PLEASE clean up the dishes you use while I am at work?”

DJ:  “I clean up some of them.  Just not the hard ones.”

Dad:  “Probably.  Just bring it home.”

May 2018:  It returns.


6.  A lone sweet potato, just hanging around.

  1. Oh the joys of coming back home after college is out! I miss that. But now I can keep my house as messy as I want (though I don’t) and leave out all the lone sweet potatoes I desire! 🙂

    You might want to send her back.

  3. Aunt Susan

     /  May 16, 2018

    I agree with your mom, do you think the boat will take her?

  4. It is the greatest joy in life to have them back. Your post is spot on! —CC

    I don’t agree w/ Mom or Aunt Susan . . . you KNOW you missed her, and too soon she’ll be gone for good. Enjoy her . . . and the mess. Just be sure to let her know that if she goes somewhere else, they may not be as kind to her as they are at home!!
