Tonight I it took almost three hours to cover 15 books, copybooks, and folders in clear Con-Tact paper.
The only thing that made the job semi-interesting was the appearance of Chessie. Normally she spends her time sleeping on the dresser in our bedroom or one of the kids' beds, but lately she's been venturing into the living room.
Tonight, each time I trimmed excess plastic from books' edges, she was right there watching the X-acto knife and swatting at the stringy trimmings. I'm glad she can still see. I often wonder about that.
