Dust Bunnies

Housework...the chore every person who hasn't been born with a silver spoon attached to them has to deal with it.  Something dirty, dusty, stinky and disgusting  around, in, on or under their household domain.  I generally can get through my tasks without much difficulty or displeasure but it is the dust that frustrates me.  I can not vacuum it up like crumbs on the floor or push a button and make it disappear like dried on food in the dishwasher  instead, I CHASE IT!  Someone on a…

It' raining it's pouring

We all know the children's chant...It's raining, it's pouring, everything is boring...what?  You are thinking that is not the way it goes and yet we all have had children pull the "I'm bored" card on us.  I am sure you have responded with "I can give you a chore" or perhaps you did the "With a room full of toys, how can you tell me you have nothing to do?"  One rainy day when my granddaughter said she was bored, I sat on the couch and said "let's be bored together."  At first she…
