  1. Interpersonal relationships can be so challenging!

      And I felt the same about you--so easy to talk to!

      Yes, they are challenging. Maybe that's what makes them so rewarding.

      Sometimes it feels like a bunch of challenge for a little reward! :)

  2. Winter makes me feel so lazy!

  3. Some businesses are rushing things just a bit, imo. We received our first holiday card today (from our Edward Jones agent), and Walgreens has their New Year party supplies out. Slow down, people!

      New Years! I'm used to Christmas coming out almost right after the Back to School sales, but now rushing to New Years too?

  4. Any reason NOT to do Receipt Hog?

      Oooh, I haven't heard of this either. I use Ibotta, and periodically Checkout 51. I recently started using ShopKick as well.

      I'll check out yours, Renai! Thanks!

  5. I've never tasted terrycloth, but I imagine it to have a very similar texture to the banana I ate with my cereal this morning. :P

  6. I've come up with the title for my first book: "Parenting--Expect the Unexpected" :P

      Hmmm ... intriguing!

  7. The bad news: I'm losing my mind. The good news: I found 2 Tootsie Rolls in the bottom of my purse!

  8. If you eat brownies in really tiny bites, they have fewer calories.

      Of course, because the calories escape as you break them into tinier and tinier pieces.

  9. I hate unwrapping Nestle Crunch eggs. But apparently not enough to stop eating them!

      I'm reading a book (fiction) where one character talks about slicing chocolate eggs with an egg slicer. Now I wish we had some around to try it out.

      I'd bring you some, but mine are gone. XD

  10. Kohl's customer service has gone all "Pretty Woman" on me. It's creepy!

      I am intrigued. Care to share more?

    3. Chelle in MO

      Sure! I've had to call Kohl's customer service a couple of times in the past few weeks, and both times the male rep was *very* complimentary of the items I ordered. It was really fake. For example, "You have chosen some exceptionally nice items, today! The blue of that shirt is such an amazing shade, and I'm sure it's going to look wonderful on you!" :P

      I've called them in the past and they were never like that. Seems like some new training or something. One of the recent times I ordered a couple of bras and a couple of bed jackets. The guy made a syrupy comment and when I said, "Especially the bras, right?" he started back-pedalling! It seemed obvious that he had a script. He and I had a good laugh over it!

  11. I drove off with the tube from the Walgreens' drive-thru pharmacy today! Went around the block and returned it. No one was the wiser! lol

  12. Dh is so funny! He just texted me and said, "Ree says hi!" along w/a selfie he took next to a life-size Pioneer Woman poster at Walmart!

      About to go there myself to get one of "her" frying pans! lol

      I say "look, there's Ree!" whenever her Walmart commercial comes on. Everyone in my family rolls their eyes at me.

  13. Don't be like me...address the OUTSIDE envelope of the graduation announcements, not the INSIDE one. Because even if you decide to redeem the situation by mailing them w/out the outside envelopes, you'll be very disappointed to discover that the inside envelopes don't have any glue. Sigh.

      Glue stick. It works like a charm.

      You know, Perky, I'm thinking that might just be the best option. Thanks!

  14. Don't do what I did and write your child's height down on the graduation gown order form as a foot shorter than it really is.

      This totally cracks me up. A story for them to tease you with forever!

      You know what's sad. You are telling me this but I will probably do that anyway. Hope you got a pic before returning it.

      Taking a photo of him in it is a great idea, Binip! :)

  15. I just said, "I wish I could bake cookies for a living." One of my boys said, "I wish I could EAT cookies for a living!"

  16. Ds19 is bringing his gf home tonight for the first time. Ds12 just walked into the livingroom and said, "The guest bathroom hasn't been this clean since the war!"

  17. I am loving the January thaw!

  18. If anyone needs me, I'll be in the dryer getting warm.

      It really is! I keep reminding myself that at least I don't live in North Dakota anymore! ;)

      My dog won't even walk today. He whines and then changes his mind when I open the door.

      Poor guy! I know how he feels, but I forced myself to walk today!

  19. Driving practice w/ds15. Had to break out the stress-relieving chocolate--homemade peanut clusters!

      Good luck! This is my 3rd time, and it's not getting any easier!

      Did you save some for me?

      Yes! Come on over!

  20. Got gas for $1.99/gal at Costco today! Woohoo!

  21. I miss carbs.

    1. Quill

      Quill

      They miss you, too. Poor carbs. They never meant to hurt anyone.

      Haha--sorry to give you a bad mental picture, Jean! Sweet dreams, TG! :)

  23. In order to find your car in the store's parking lot, you must first remember which car you drove to the store.

      I came out the other day and said "The car's been stolen!" Dd said, "We drove the tan car, Mom. It's right there." Oops. (embarrassed smilie)

  24. Candy corn is not an acceptable alternative to chocolate.

    1. Carolina Wren

      Carolina Wren

      I think this could be safely reduced to "Candy corn is not acceptable."

    2. Chelle in MO

      Chelle in MO

      Haha! Good point! Once I remembered the plain M&Ms in the freezer, I gave up on the candy corn! The M&Ms were a half-step in the right direction!

  25. In the dream house I'm building in my mind, I have my very own bathroom.
