I'm still searching for that fabulous cream-colored blouse I spent a fortune to buy. I just had to have it. I wore it once and it disappeared. I don't have any daughters who could have raided my closet in the middle of the night, no friends have reported finding a new blouse in their homes, and I have searched every corner of that closet at least 50 times. The blouse is among the missing. I've looked everywhere. I've found clothing I thought I had given away. I found things that don't fit any more, and clothes that were the "real me" 20 years ago. But no lovely, expensive, cream-colored blouse.

CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. -- A decomposed body found by police last week in a closet of a house on Newington Court in the Tuscawilla Hills subdivision was that of a woman who appears to be in her 90s, a Jefferson County Sheriff's Department spokesman said Monday. An autopsy was conducted at the state Medical Examiner's Office in Charleston, W.Va., but the woman's identity could not be confirmed due to advanced decomposition of the body, Lt. Dave Colbert said. Investigators are trying to determine the woman's identity through DNA testing, Colbert said, noting that it could be two weeks before the sheriff's department receives results from those tests.

Children love to play "pretend," and there is no better place to play than somewhere that makes them feel snug and cozy. While such an area might seem difficult to find in a small home, remember that someone who is only 36 inches tall can squeeze a lot out of a quite ordinary space that is barely noticed by an adult. If you think you can't spare the space to designate as a playroom for your children or grandchildren, take a second look. You might find the perfect spot on a back porch, in a hall or under a stairway.

"1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10! Ready or not, here I come!" I was in the coat closet, hiding from my 5-year-old. It wasn't that I had reached the end of my rope. On the contrary, I was having a most enjoyable time, playing her favorite game. The closet door was cracked just a tad as a clue for her. It also allowed me to gauge her concern level. If she couldn't find me in a reasonable amount of time, I was prepared to reveal my hiding place. I didn't want her to think I left the house.

I approached the world of consignment clothing warily. It happened sometime between the births of my third and fourth children. I had piles of baby and toddler clothes I had deemed necessary during my early parenting years, but a growing family and limited closet space got me rethinking how much clothing a child actually needs. For infants, the list had narrowed to a picture-worthy outfit, a handful of Onesies, and some soft cotton layette gowns. Toddlers needed a couple changes of finger-painting clothes, a few endearing casual sets, and something presentable for church and holidays.
