7:15 pm. There’s laundry sorting to be done. I fold up the clean sheets while balancing the phone against my ear. Paul is in Vegas. Oona is undoing the socks I have put together. I turn my back to stuff the sheets into the closet.
7:17 pm (approx.). Still folding. Somewhat distracted by phone conversation, Chowder previews on Cartoon Network and the ever – present din of sisterly arguing.
7:18 pm. Realize Oona has wandered out of the bedroom. Must follow and make sure she isn’t eating cat food. Again.
7:19 pm. Discover Oona sitting in my chair at my desk, holding peanut butter cup that had been rather well – hidden behind sewing machine. She must have a nose for this sweet and forbidden stuff. She moves quickly to defend her treasure; she loves her newest word.
