Missing Bree

Used to be, on those "throw a Disney movie into the DVD player and deep clean the house"days (as opposed to the more frequent "quick run of the vacuum or swiffer days") I would get the carpets dog hair free, and the hardwoods clean and shiny with no water spots. And, I would say to myself, I wish they'd stay clean for more than 5 to 10 minutes.

But then, Bree would come back downstairs. She'd scratch an itch or give a shake, and boom, hair was back. She'd be thirsty and drink half her bowl of water, dripping the other half in a path between the bowl and her bed. Sigh.  

Today was the first deep clean day since we lost her. And I got my wish. It's been a few hours and the floors are still clean - no new dog hair, no water spots. And I'm saying to myself, "I wish Bree were here to mess up the floors..."  Sigh. ( and maybe a tear or two)
