"Dear House"

The writing expert featured in Shimelle's new class suggested writing a letter to an inanimate object. I wrote the following letter to my house.
Dear House,
Are you built on some mysterious spot that causes strange weather phenomena to occur within your walls?  Are there small volcanoes which erupt in the floor spewing debris about for me to clean up? Do small geysers exist in the children's dressers causing clothes to gush out and overflow the drawers, cascading to the floor?  Are there tsunami winds which blow papers all over the counters or small tornadoes knocking every remote, telephone and adapter onto the floor?
How else do you explain the mess which greets me each morning? I know I tied you up yesterday!
Regards,
Mortgage Owner

What a great letter! I hope the house feels suitably ashamed for disturbing the pristine manner in which you leave it when you go to bed at night ;-)

Beautiful page! I really love the journaling, it made me smile. I definitely think my apartment has tsunami winds. It's the only plausible explanation. :)
