Re: Ex-Wife Update

I went to my ex-husband's funeral -- I wanted to be there for my son. But, I sat in the back, and didn't insert myself into the family gathering, etc. Later some family members said they were sorry I wasn't at the family meal, and that made me feel [more]

Re: Laundry help - black jeans?

I always wash black jeans with vinegar, because it helps keep them from fading. It seems to work well to remove odors, so I second that suggestion.

Re: My Uncle Died

amiright?


You're right. But that doesn't make it any easier or less painful. While my personal drunk was alive, there was hope that there would be a miracle. Then he was dead. And I grieved that hope and the person he might have [more]

Re: outlook question

I am not a guru. . .I just save e-mails for CYA purposes to my hard drive.

Re: April Fool

Here's the text message I just sent to the kids:

There’s a problem with our phone contract, and Verizon is going to have to sort it out by disabling our phones for three days. The phones will not have service from April 2-5. I guess they [more]

April Fool

I'm stuck. I can't figure out how to out-do myself. Last year, I sent an e-mail to all my kids saying we'd finally figured out why Sasha (girl cat) was so fat -- she'd had four kittens, all black and white (just like Bocephus the boy cat). I told [more]

Re: Easter

So, I'm about 180 degrees from where you are on Easter. But no one warned me when I started this ministry business that Holy Week would be crazy. Like multiple worship services, and an Easter breakfast at church, and kids and Mom visiting for Easter, [more]

Re: Cheap and easy desserts

I wanted to make pie for pi day. This was quick and easy:

oreo crust -- crushed up oreos and melted butter pressed into pie plate and baked just long enough to hold it together.

3 tablespoons of instant coffee dissolved an a couple [more]

Re: And thinking ahead....

My Dad was cremated, and my Mom wants to be cremated as well. They bought niches in a wall at a cemetery in their home town, and I've been able to visit there. My Mom has always said she has claustrophobia, and she needs to be seated at the end of a [more]

Re: Wet sheets

I did have a fitted sheet. I didn't tuck it under, left the elastic exposed until the sheets were dry. Worked like a charm!

Re: Wet sheets

Cosmos did give me the idea, and it worked well for me. The way the sheets felt was the big benefit. When I got home from work after leaving the wet sheets on the bed, the sheets were completely dry, and I made the bed easily. I can't let my bad cat [more]

Re: Wet sheets

The theory is that the sheets are pretty dry from the washer and where I live, the air is very dry during winter months. I'll check carefully to see if anything is wet. I have a waterproof mattress pad on the bed because of Bocephus the bad boy cat. [more]

Wet sheets

I had lunch a couple weeks ago with a Fool I'd never met in real life, and we talked about sheets. She told me about folks who wash sheets and put them on the bed wet. They don't tuck the sheets in, but leave them for several hours, and the sheets [more]

blue streak

I broke my ankle a couple weeks ago, and went in for a follow-up x-ray yesterday. As I got situated, the x-ray technician said, "Oh, I like the blue streak in your hair." Then she turned to a co-worker and said, "See, you can still [more]

Re: New Carpet

They might not have explained it well, but carpet installation never includes moving furniture.

Actually, some of the businesses in my little corner of the world DO include moving furniture.

a thank you note

Every year, I send all my nieces and nephews pajamas for Christmas. I'm the weird aunt. This year, I also sent a gift box of cheese for their parents. Here's a thank you note I received from my 15-year-old nephew:

Re: New Carpet

I came close to buying new carpet last fall. I was ready to pay the price of the carpet and installation. I'd asked for an estimate for the main level and the bedroom level, and had to insist the two be separated. After thinking it through, we [more]
