Today when we got back from the post office, the girls were setting up coloring implements on the porch. I was taking everything from the car into the house when I noticed I had a shadow. "You look overwhelmed, Mother," said the shadow. "I am, a bit," I said. "Well, I've been watching you and I think that it's the cleaning that's stressing you out. Why don't you give cleaning a break and color with us. That will stop you from being so overwhelmed. And you'll be more fun to be around."
