Home Spun comic strip #435
Our couch is a busy place. I don't think I saw it for most of December. It's not for lack of trying. The faster I clear it, the faster it gets covered. It happens to be the hub of activity. It sits in the living room, which is the most used room in the house by kids and cats alike. This is not surprising in the winter, since sunlight pours in through the windows, keeping us warm and energizing anything under 5'4. The couch is the spot for pillow fights and workbooks, reading and art, tents and toy stages. Until I built our current couch, it was also the lost and found. I could always count on finding missing library books in between the cushions or slid down between the seat and armrests. One of our couches also had a torn lining underneath where we would find missing cats. I just wish I could use the couch for other things sometimes. Like sitting.
