Sometimes change happens so gradually that you barely notice it. Then all of a sudden, one day, you realize that things are not the same as they used to be.
This newspaper on the coffee table is one such change. To most people, it is not a big deal to have a newspaper laying on the coffee table, but a year ago, or even six months ago, this newspaper could not be left here. It would have been torn to sheds and eaten by one named Bosley.
These books would have been used as a fun tug-o-war toy, or would suddenly be missing a corner.
Yesterday, I looked at the pile of reading material on the table and suddenly realized that we can leave out books, magazines and newspapers and the dogs actually leave them alone.
Now steaks are another issue. I still need to leave them on the back of the stove or I am very certain that as soon as I turn my back, they would be gone.
Somehow I think that the steaks will always be on the back of the stove.
