Since the election...

the biggest excitement around here was coming home today to find an empty, torn up bread bag on the floor, and a very happy dog.

Later we found the rest of the loaf - some very nice seeded French bread, with only a few slices gone when we'd left the house this morning - "buried" under some clean laundry on the couch.

Yes, I sometimes do leave clean laundry on the couch. It's close to the laundry room and a good location for me to read to the kids while they fold it. Sometimes it takes a day or two.

Oh, the dog is now allowed to sleep on the kids' beds. So they are fighting over who gets the dog at night. The seminarian is wondering if we need a spare dog to keep everyone happy. Usually the girl gets him because the dog has become too lazy to walk up the stairs to the boy's attic room. Must be all the bread.

Well, it's been my experience that if you got a "spare dog", they would curl up to sleep together in one bed, so one kid would still be dogless.

I don't think ours have ever eaten a loaf of bread, but they do drag things out of the trash and eat them, like paper towels that I've drained bacon on. Mmmmm...fiber in the diet AND bacon grease...doesn't get much better than that! ;-)

I will never forget coming into the kitchen and finding our 180 lb drooly mastiff lickning the plate that just before held a triple batch of warm peanut butter cookies. And she wasn't too careful with her tongue, either. Ever try cleaning up dog drool? I think they make super glue from it.

I used to do laundry on the couch too. Much cozier than the basement where it is now-a-days. But now it would just be absurd to have that pile up in the living room. :)
