New Uses...

...For old things:

Crisco is my new best friend. Butter cream icing is, unfortunately, so rich and creamy because of Crisco. And now, my heels will soon be smooth and crack-free. Slather Crisco onto poorly maintained heels, throw on a thick pair of socks, and let the Crisco work its magic. Repeat as necessary until heels are restored to health.

What new uses for old things do you have?

girlie girl

Isabel has officially become a girlie girl.

She now says "EWWWWWW" for anything and everything that she doesn't like, isn't pretty, she thinks might be gross....

This morning, she protested one outfit because she'd already seen another that she preferred. She managed to insist on the green dress instead of the black flowered one. Who knew an 18 month old had such strong clothing preferences?!

Random tasks I love:
1. Paying my bills via on-line banking.
2. Cleaning out all the gum wrappers from the bottom of my purse.
3. Crossing off "yesterday" in my planner.
4. Writing my To-Do list in my planner...and crossing off the finished items.
5. Cleaning out the fridge-dumping old leftovers that we forgot to eat and scrubbing the shelves with some sort of heavy duty cleaner.

How about you?
