Catron House Wars

There has been a battling waging in the Catron house lately.

I have been accused of being a thief.

A thief of the covers during the night.

I live with a detective, so he can make a pretty compelling case, HOWEVER I have proof that I am not the thief that he claims….

Please note Exhibit A:

Side A:Side B

Side A is Merlyn’s side of the bed. Nice and tidy because he is out of town this week.

Side B is my side of the bed immediately after getting up this morning. Notice how the disruption of the covers is confined to ONLY my side of the bed. Wouldn’t a true “cover stealer” take advantage of all of the covers?

I rest my case.

What’s your recurring domestic war?

    I am totally with you, Jenni. Clearly, you are not a cover-stealer. His side is virtually unscathed.

    I am usually a very tidy sleeper. Greg, however, likes to cocoon himself in the bedding. He also likes to hold on to the blankets as he rolls. I don’t understand him.

    Sneaky…..using that out-of-town time to bolster your case. Thanks for the smile as I head off to bed!

    I’m just surprised a “man’s man” like Merilyn sleeps on pink sheets! 🙂

    THis evidence is very compelling!

    Our domestic ‘I can’t believe you did that!’ are: not replacing TP or paper towels and leaving the empty roll there and no water in the iron. Of course, I’m usually the guilty one but I’m busy with 2 kids, right?? Good for you for settling the argument. I’m sure Merlyn will find a way to dispute it….no witnesses on the scene…could have tampered with the evidence. 😉

    I have Mick (my border collie) as my witness, but I’m not sure how reliable he’ll be. He’s easily swayed by Merlyn.

    I’ll be the only guy to step up in his defense. This clearly looks like a set up.

  • Jenni Catron May 15, 2008  

    Jonathan – he will be so appreciative of your support, but I think I’m still winning this one!

    I’m not getting in the middle of this one! 🙂
