I have been missing. But I dug myself out of the wrapping paper mound, put it in the garage and shut the door. I am still in a bit of a chocolate haze, but I think I may have run out. Or at least I haven’t opened a new box.
This year should be interesting. I will be building a house. I am no longer fun at dinner parties because I ask people what their square footage is and why their roof is pitched at that precise angle. I also find myself sneaking off and wandering uninvited with a tape measure to see what size the bedrooms are.
I don’t check medicine cabinets, though. I saw on a TV show that you should put marbles in your cabinets so that if someone opens them, they get caught. They said nothing about guests with tape measures.
So I’m not sure what you may find here in 2012. But I have a feeling building a home and having a crisis will be very tightly bound.
