Day 153. in which the perimeter grows smaller daily.

I was tidying up the kitchen this morning when I felt Dad standing behind me. You would think I'd be used to this by now but I still find it a bit unsettling. Logistically, it's a challenge because I'm often running around the house between chores. Many times when I turn, I actually run into him physically. I know how much better it makes him to follow me around so I try not to get agitated with it.

"Hello. I am standing right behind you. I am here," Dad announced.

"And I am here!"

"I just wanted you to know that," he continued.

I laughed, "...Um, O.K., Dad. Thanks!"

"I wanted to let you know that I'll be in this perimeter all day today."

I knew I was in for a long day!
