March 21, 2017Dry
Etsy and The Frugal Gals finally convinced me to purchase some dryer balls. Dryer ballssupposedlysoften your clothesevery time you use them. They take thestiffness out of clothes, sheets, and towels naturally, with no chemical or toxins.I found mine at TJ Maxx while waiting in line to purchase workout gear,keratinshampoo, candles and an ice cream scoop (man,I love this store.) My arms were full when I spotted the dryer balls, but I was able to put one more thing in my basket beforemakingmy way to check-out number three.
My internet friends tell me these dryer balls will eliminate the need for a dryer sheet, willlast a long time, treat theenvironment and my clothes well, and save me a little cash. I'm listening to my dryer roll these balls around with my towels right now. It's a noisy dry alright, but I haven't had to purchase dryer sheets in forever. What I need protection from now is my teenage daughters who justfreely pour all the fabric softener they want into the washer without thinking about how this stuff is $13.00 a bottle. That's a pricey wash, and it's not even for a car.

December 13, 2016December Fever
I was in the mall last night and grew fonder of on-line shopping. My visit was simply to get a computer serviced at the Apple store. As I walked through the sea of families stroking and coughing on every iPad and iWatch in the store, I wished for iSanitizer on every ...
December 6, 2016December
December birthdays tossed into the usual decking of the halls can really complicate ones calendar. We December babies get that this month is tough. I've always appreciated the fact that my mom kept the days different, as I do for one of my daughters, also born this ...
November 22, 2016Cars
Car shopping has me looking at everything with four wheels in a different light. Instead of driving behind a silver car I deem "too slow because it won't drive the limit in the fast lane, my view has changed to "I like the styling of that slow Acura. and the digital ...

Field trips and parties are an important part of the school year. I remember being sick for my second grade field trip. I was devastated to miss our class trip to the Philadelphia Zoo, that really was worse than the chicken pox I had. My kids will never understand that ...
