nano nears middle of month … but hey, who’s in charge here?

There’s laundry spilling out of the two big white laundry buckets that have been shoved into the nether regions of the laundry room. Where no one will notice them.
There are, in some corners, tumbleweeds of dark dog hair.
The dishwasher is empty but that’s because the few dishes in use (for soup and grilled cheese) lay drying on a kitchen towel next to the sink having been quickly handwashed.
The dining room table is still laden with a paper project that was started two weeks ago.
The holiday catalogs are stacked, untouched, on the coffee table. There is no room for coffee.
The bed is made in haste and the sheets are wrinkly beneath the puff of the winter comforter.
The fridge is nearly empty but there is plenty in the freezer to pop open and bake. Or thaw. Or microwave.
The dogs are walked but not brushed.
The leaves have fallen but are not raked.
Sssshhh. Don’t ask the lady of the house for clean socks, where the scotch tape is, if there are any more business envelopes, or if she feels like baking brownies, or something … anything.
Sssshhhh. It’s that nano thing.
