Since I lived by myself for most of my 20's, I often thought it was funny that I spent so much time cleaning. Being the OCD person that I was/am, I would still go about my weekly routine even things never really got dirty. Nothing was ever out of place, either. If I set something down, I always knew where to look to find it.
Happily, those days are over and have been replaced by a new regime in which I hunt for something almost every time I leave the house. Jacob is one of those kids who gathers random bits of this and that with the intensity of a squirrel gathering nuts. Then he plays with his new finds, sometimes leaving them in places that make us laugh.
