does the time go? I should have waited 2 more months and it would be a year since I posted on here. LOL

As the years go on, I look more and more like my mother. I'm not so sure this is such a good thing. It makes me wonder what else I've gotten from her. I don't like to be scared every time I look in the mirror.

I confess I'm a hoarder....

and man does my bathroom smell good.

I have a tendency to put back and save stuff I really like. I think I may have learned this morning to quit doing that. I have some shower gel that I really like so I only use a little every now and then. So this morning I'm taking a bath and don't want a bubble bath but decide some gel on a cloth would be just right. Well the bottle of gel breaks into 5 pieces, I'm not talking a little crack here. So I have more gel in the tub than any bath can take. It'll take me forever to get it all out. So use up your stuff before the bottle disintegrates on you. Or get glass bottles. Hmmm, pretty idea...

Need ....

a good laugh?

Mattel has come out with Twilight Barbies.

Of course prices are going way to high for 'em too.

I saw Edward at Target. He's pale. LOL

Oh, one bummer, I didn't think of this myself. :)

Edited 'cause there is a Jacob. I don't know why the website doesn't list it but ToysRUs has it.

Today I ....

feel like I can breathe and relax. The 1000 lb gorilla got off my chest finally.

I don't do stress very well and that isn't good for someone with a condition that doesn't respond kindly to stress. I don't do well with reduce stress techniques either.

It's nice when the only thing on the to do list is to go get flu mist for the girls and go to soccer.

DH gets home tomorrow night and the next weekend I go on my scrapbook retreat. Nice break coming up. The cat seems to be recovering well. No retaliation that I can find yet. I wonder if he's waiting for DH to get home. He always retaliates on his stuff. It shouldn't be but it's quite funny!

Have a good weekend everyone!

about what to do.

I'm big on the kids going to school when they are suppose to. For example, they went all the swine flu make up days even though half the school didn't and they didn't do to much. Anyway, we are going on a trip for Fall Break. This year they get Th, F, and M off instead of a whole week. If we have them miss T from school it would make flying back so much easier on me (one connection instead of 3 or 4). So what do you think? Take an unexcused absence or make it hard on me flying back?

Missing my grandmother...

even though she is still alive. You see my grandmother has Alzheimer's. She lives nearby in a nursing home. She no longer talks and can barely see, otherwise she is in great physical health. I miss my grandmother from my college years. I went to college about an hour and a half from my grandparents. I would go stay weekends or just go do laundry midweek. Gas was cheaper then the laundry mat then. They always expected me even if I didn't tell them I was coming. My PaPa (he died in 2001) would have something cooked (tomatoes and rice) or we'd call Grandmother at work and have her bring home a pizza. It was good times.

My grandmother collected salt and pepper shakers. She had hundreds. My dad was in the army and my folks got married when my mom was 17. So we started picking one up for her every where we went and it caught on to other family members as well. When her household was consolidated the shakers were distributed amongst family. Here is my share.

I should have taken them down and took a close up. You get the point though.

Every once in a while...

you find a good deal. I went to Batteries Plus today to get a battery in my watch 'cause nobody else would do it. Well they offer a deal for $13 where they replace the battery for the lifetime of the watch. So unless they go out of business or did something to break my watch that's a good deal. They don't do all brands but they did my Seiko. Now if they'll do Mickey...
