So as many of you know, this summer has brought some interesting health challenges for me. As a result, there were many things I put on the back burner – cleaning my floors regularly was one of them. Now, my peeps here made sure that the house didn’t go unvacuumed and the kitchen was clean, the laundry was done, however, the task of actually moving things around and getting behind couches, toy baskets etc – well, that was something I just needed to jump back into for myself.
So today I determined that I had enough in me to tackle the floors ‘my way’ and proceeded to move some things around to get to those “hard to clean” places like under the shoe basket (definition: basket of shoes resulting in more predictable containment than kids’ closets). When I pulled the basket away from the wall, I saw a piece of paper – nothing unusual in my house as our middle daughter is obsessed with all things paper (rolling, shredding, coloring, gluing – and combinations of all 4 on a regular basis). It was a small piece that had been tightly rolled, scroll-style, so I carefully uncurled it to see what little nugget of inspiration my sweet one had left for me to find beneath the shoes . . . it read simply: “HELP VEGGIES!!”
I’m still fairly perplexed. I mean, there are several angles I could take here. Should I be concerned that she is being stalked (ahh, I crack myself up) by veggies in her dreams? Is it a cry for help? Or is she genuinely concerned for the safety of veggies everywhere? Does she want to become a fruitarian? I have a feeling only she will know – so maybe this will need to be a 2 part blog. If you care, I should have this mystery solved sometime after completing car pool today.
And for those who need to know – no veggies were harmed in the making of this blog.
