So, any missing item gets to spend the year sitting on the shelf in the closet surveying our comings and goings. (Since this is also the closet where Rita's treats reside, we come and go a lot!)
Because of the "there's always one!" problem, I usually do a military-precision-style sweep of the house, going through each room several times to make sure no one gets left behind. I pile everything on/around the dining room table, and when I'm sure I've got it all, I start cramming, er, packing.
Well, I really thought I'd rounded up and exiled everyone this year, until Rita pointed out that we had a stow-away hiding between two dining room chairs.
I found this little guy, trying hard to look innocent. Doesn't he have that "I know NOTHING" expression on his little bug-eyed face?
|(Ignore the dog hair. Everything in our house has some.)|
|Yes, little guy. That blur behind you wants to EAT you!|
Do you manage to get all your Christmas stuff packed away in one go?
