Have you ever stopped to ponder "Why?"

For example, why do I have a large corner pantry with a cookbook shelf, yet manage to keep all my cookbooks neatly in a pile on the corner of my kitchen table? And why are there manuals for my dishwasher and sink, as well as a free sample of dish soap, on my cookbook shelf, where my cookbooks actually belong? And why do we have a house with 2-1/2 bathrooms, yet aren't able to keep even one of them clean? Seriously - even the one we don't much use was super-grimy.

Why do I have a large round coffee table with convenient boxes with lids under it for storage of books and magazines, yet continually keep the books and magazines in stacks next to the boxes? And for that matter, why do we have so many old editions of Car & Driver, Soap Opera Digest, etc.? Shouldn't we read these things and rid ourselves of them?

Ah, the myriad of things to ponder while cleaning the house...

J is finally down for his morning nap. I use "morning" loosely, as it is around 11:45 a.m. He just would not sleep earlier. I suspect he is very enthused by his new toy and anxious to play instead. The new toy is a "Whoozit" that we picked up second hand from Once Upon a Child, and it is most entertaining. It has squeaky things, crinkly things, rattles, a mirror, bright colors. Everything a little baby could possibly want. And it velcroes on to his car seat, stroller, or crib. Best toy ever! But not conducive to sleep whatsoever. No, no.

Why did I hang it in his crib?
