  • in Vermont writing. Hello, Michael, Not that you would not not expect it but there are dishes in the sink, laundry in the machines, and an odd assortment of food in the fridge, eggs, ice cream, lettuces and juice. The beds are unmade, some red tulips are up, the basketballs are out in the yard, the mantle is covered in paper. Children are excited about your return! I forgot to hang up lights but wished to. Another world, a different country when you're gone. O and I've lost the debit card and my job but not that much else. With love and cheer, Katie
