January 31 | Ranch Style
Actually, to be more precise, she only liked a bit of iceberg lettuce. None of that extra cruncy stuff. And only ranch dressing would do.
But not any ranch dressing. Ohhhh no. It had to be extra watered down - like the kind you can find in an all-you-can-eat salad bar, watered down so much that it only contains 5% dressing and 95% water just so the restaurant can save a few pennies (how much can ranch dressing cost, anyway?).
She would complain and pout if the dressing had not been properly watered down. Or if there were bits of red cabbage tainting her precious iceberg lettuce.
January 22 | Masking Tape
I had tried simply declaring my new rules one night before bedtime, but I soon found out that Melissa needed something more than words to prompt her into my obedience.
Out came the masking tape.
I devised a highly-scientific (or so I thought) method to mark the boundaries of My Side, Her Side, as well as The Walkway. The Walkway was neutral ground and primarily used to get from the door to My Side. I felt this method was fool proof, and it made me proud.
While it doesn’t shock me now, I was furious when she didn't respect the tape lines and snottily jumped in and out of My Side to torture me.
The tape didn't stay on the floor long - I think Mom made me remove it.

January 08 | Down Time
With a lot of work and help from Damon, all of the posts and comments are back online and functioning.
And there is a new feature - each memory has its own page that you can find by clicking on the memory's subject. This page includes the memory, all comments, and a comment submission form.
I am very sorry for the down time, and I have missed being able to come to this site each day. If there are still problems or something isn't working quite right, please email me or leave a comment in this thread.
