There are, I am convinced, ghosts dwelling in my house. They are the pesky variety, given to using our clothes, but never cleaning them or putting them back where they belong, using our dishes, but they simply leave them lie where they were used. Never have these shades thought to even clear them away, not to mention wash and dry and place them, neatly stacked on the shelves.

These ghosts leave scraps of paper about, knock books from shelves and have the audacity to use my children's toys without their permission or knowledge.

At least, that is the only thing I can conclude from a glance at the hamper, a scan of the sink and an examination of the floor.

What else could I conclude????

We have ghosts too. They take a diabolical delight in spreading marbles and action figures all over the floor. Their activities are so common that the kids have given them names. Notme and Iduno are the chief villains.

LOL, family circus all the way!!! I haven't seen them for quite awhile, but you are right, they were ghosts!!!

Marbles huh. Now those are fun to step on in the middle of the night.
(I loved Erma Brombecks line, that when the kids moved out she finally had to admit the mess was at least partially hers. I guess there is a reason for kids after all. I hope the grandkids all live close enough and visit frequently enough so I can blame them!
