Re: Daily Check in Feb 3, 2016

We had a night of heavy rain, with lots of wind and a little thunder and lightning. Around 3:30 a.m., Littlest Dachshund decided she'd had enough of trying to be brave and lay down on top of me. After a lot of petting and quiet soothing, she calmed down, but it was not a restful night. Next week I g...

JCKItty, our elderly cat is evil and has been since he was a wee kitten. I am not entirely sure why we let him live, much less take such great care of him! Now, the other two are such nice cats and are so sweet and loving.

Re: What do you think of the economy 2016?

Re: Fabulous February No Spend Challenge

I have been letting my hair grow out and, after 40 years of wearing it short, had forgotten how frizzy it gets with some length on it. I was wondering this morning if there was some product I should buy to tame it and then happened to remember a large bottle of rarely used curl-defining cream sittin...

Re: Laundry question

My DS's white socks are permanently dingy. Not even a hot wash with bleach gets them white looking again.
