Last weekend I "dog-sat" for my daughter while she and her family took a vacation to Cape Cod, a place to which I've never been, by the way. Fortunately she lives less than 10 minutes away, and in the direction of the town I often go to for various reasons.
When I saw her tonight, she had a "thank-you" gift for me. I saw the box with a picture of a coffee mug on it, and I thought, "Oh no, not another one..." (I think I've mentioned before that I'm in the process of cleaning out the house, and I refuse to bring anything into it without taking something out of it in exchange.)
There are only two of us here now that the kids have flown the coop, and we're not big-time coffee drinkers, so probably 4 mugs would do the trick for us. My cupboard, however, has significantly more than 4 mugs and I keep vowing to clean that cupboard out.
But, let me tell you, when I saw the mug she had gotten for me, I was impressed. A color I love, a funky shape. Totally unique.
So, I will get around to cleaning the cupboard, but this new mug has a place reserved for it, no questions asked!
