A Sad Commentary

On her way to the backyard and through the garage, my four-year old daughter stopped suddenly and with alarm.

"Mom, what's wrong?? What happened in here??"

"What do you mean, honey?"

Said with considerable panic: "Why is there space in here? Did you clean or somethin'?"

There you have it folks: cleaning is cause for alarm at Casa Alatorre.

I cleaned off my kitchen counter and my daughter walked thru and stopped dead in her tracks and said, "Whoa!!!"

Mine usually offer a gem like, "do we have people coming over?"

Oh boy, does that sound like a familiar scene! My daughter does not know a world without clutter!
