  1. https://paolabrown.com/teach-kids-homeopathy-free-lessons/?utm_campaign=Teach-Kids-Health-&-Homeopathy&utm_source=House-List&utm_content=Free-Lesson-Page Three free lessons if you're into homeopathy
  2. Ice cream sandwiches, Cheetos, and banana bread. I also have my hidden stash of dark chocolate bars with orange bits. Dh doesn't like those.
  3. Just read today that bungee cords are filled with elastic...
  4. Enjoyed Finding Dorothy, background fact/fiction about Wizard of Oz; didn't want it to end. And my mom couldn't put The Indigo Girl down.
  5. i'm sure you can cook with it, but any nutrients would be long gone
  6. Picked up some onion sets, asparagus, and garlic to start out in the garden while I was out today. Can do those as soon as the ground can be dug up. Also grabbed some herbs to repot-- basil and rosemary. Wish they'd had oregano, too.
  7. So exciting to have time to do things that have been on the back burner! Being self employed, we have to keep working, and we're a service business, too. Luckily? this is a slow time for our business, so the techs aren't visiting too many places. It would be lovely to have the free time!
  8. We ended up seeing 1917. Apparently not a big Valentine's Day draw, as there were only three other couples there. lol
  9. I love my Pampered Chef stoneware bread pans.
  10. Since going with the bride to be was the only part of prep for the wedding I got to be a part of, I did go ahead and splurge for a big picnic type rehearsal dinner in our garage. MOG was hard for me. lol
  11. Do you know a tax accountant? They'd know a lot more. Lots of times HR is just passing out required forms from the government, but don't really know how they work for anyone. A tax accountant uses the information on the forms, not HR.
  12. Is he self=employed? Otherwise his employer's work comp should be kicking in a portion of lost wages. Or if he has disability insurance...
  13. I bake mine in a small roaster with a cup or so of water in the bottom, or I have a rounded stoneware bowl I cover with foil.
  14. You could freeze meatloaf or pre-slice and brown sliced steak for stir-fry or pepper steak.
  15. The hooks on my side of the closet are for a 6' person, so useless to me. I have a basket of off season clothes topped with a laundry basket where I drape my work tops and jeans. Usually wear the jeans the next day, but rotate the weekly shirt collection between one week and the next--so two wearings before they hit the laundry. Not the best, but it works for now. I used to have a chair I hung them on, but dh now uses his chair and mine.
  16. Veggie pizza, taco dip. Ham lunchmeat spread with cream cheese and rolled around pickles, sliced. Eggrolls.
  17. I have one closet that someone cut the corner area out of the shelf, so I have room for the broom/mop handles.
  18. I usually have extra items for one or two of the kids. I just put them away for the next occasion, be it birthday, Easter or the following Christmas. This year I emptied my extra supply! Time to start picking things up here or there again!
  19. We quit doing ribbons years ago. Too much else to do, and usually wrapping on Christmas Eve.
  20. Bought both boys a shoe shine kit one year, but don't think they ever used them. They wear tennies most of the time. sigh Life Savers, snack mix, jerky, nail files or clippers, got the women make up brushes and sponges one year. Toiletries. Those carabiner clips in the sports section, duct tape, office supplies, hair brush or comb, small tools.
  21. Due to Dad's diabetes and everyone else becoming health conscious, I no longer make Oreo truffles, pecan crescents, and fudge. Not many cookies at my place either. A wonderful shortbread is espresso shortbread! But mom and dad are decaf people. I started getting into the biscotti baking, but dil is gf, df, so will try to bake a cookie or two that she can eat this year. How things change through the years!
  22. One weekend I put up a few items on the mantel-- which reminds me that didn't include the nativity set-which maybe I won't put out as I'll have several two year olds on Christmas. Last weekend dd put the string of lights on the window. I managed to bring up the tree and put lights on it. Moving so slowly this year. I know I have some things for dd and dgs in my stash, and I picked up a couple books for one ds, but that's it. Just have no motivation. And the big family Christmas is moving to my house this year. Yes, I have to cook dinner for 15, too, as my kids really don't want lasagna
  23. I picture them building the Knex amusement park ride. Or a Snap Circuit set.
  24. We had a neighborhood party this fall, which we hadn't done for a number of years. We had about 25 show, and they were happy that we set it up. I've gotten back in the habit of reading personal growth books for me and for work. Trying to become the motivator at work. Big job even for a small business.
