Week Three of the Empty Nest

Looking around the family room today, I noticed that one of my children left a message for me. The house was quiet, the kitchen sink empty, no tv's blaring out but, there up on the ledge on the high windows, I spotted one blue peanut butter M&M.

Good job, kids! I cannot get it down with the dust mop or the telescoping cleaning wand thingie!

I miss you.

Love,
St.Casserole, the Mom

The Casserole children threw the M&M up there!

Reminds me of the pre-fab dinner rolls served by the CTS kitchen for seminarians. One lone roll made it up to the VERY high windows of the dining hall. The roll remained, a solemn witness to playful theological tadpoles, for years until the hall was re-painted.

i have a beanie baby in a similr predicament and it's been there for two years - you can only see it from the second floor, so I forget about it - and I do not dust the 15 foot ledges often obviously. I never thought about looking at it affectionately... hmmm... maybe that could be my excuse for leaving it
