The kitchen

I came home tonight to this: pots, pans, dishes and opened foods stewn about the kitchen counters, an opened margarine tub, an uncapped aerosol can of pam cooking spray, a handmade, italian linen dishtowel covered in thick smears of chocolate, a broken plate also smeared with melted chocolate, the settlement cook book, opened to the griddle cakes page, which was suddenly sporting a huge, frying pan shaped scorch mark across it. it smelled like burnt oil and pancakes.

And I wasn't mad at all - amused is all. Because, my daughter, the responsible party is leaving for college in less than six months. I'm not ready to come home to an orderly kitchen, everything in it's place, no surprise stains, spills or fires.
