Absence makes the heart grow fonder

Whenever a new week is upon us I reserve Mondays as my Ease Back In day. Jon's departure allows me to clear the clutter he mercilessly creates when he's home. I kindly, gently remind him it's my job to tidy and if he'd just humor me and not leave his computer's power cord, the newspaper, his date book, the trillion Manila folders containing his insane work world, opened but not properly sorted mail, some three ring binder containing the next sweet business idea, like 5 pens, and an empty glass, all on our dining room table, I'd really appreciate it. Not to mention the socks, undershirt, undies combo he forever leaves on our bedroom floor for our laundress. Oh yeah. I mean me.
