    I donate pet food freebies and good coupon deals I get in the mail to the local shelter. I also donate goods and groceries to the local women's shelter throughout the year.

    They don't let me cook

    I have brought cooked things before. It is just the last few years that they have decided to start doing this. I can't be any worse than my sister -in-law who had soupy mashed potatoes and mushy stuffing at Thanksgiving. I don't want to make anything that I wasn't asked to bring because I have...

    What's everyone reading?

    Right now, I am reading a book called Slightly Shady by Amanda Quick (AKA Jayne Ann Krentz). It is actually pretty good. It is funny and keeps your attention fairly well.

    Homemade Chapstick

    I would love to know what her "recipe" is! I love the idea of making my own lip balm. I have seen the tubes at craft shops and stuff. I know you can also buy the little pot style containers too.

    This Carb-Replacement Replaces Shaving Lotion, WD-40 and Eye Cream

    I don't use shaving cream anyway. I generally just use soap when I shave my legs. I got tired of paying the price for shaving cream a long time ago. I do like the idea of using coconut oil though! It would smell good and moisturize.

    They don't let me cook

    I am not sure why, but my hubby's family never wants me to cook anything for holiday meals. At Thanksgiving, I was asked to bring a vegetable tray and now for Christmas, I was asked to bring a cheese and cracker tray. I am probably the best cook out of all of the family, so it kind of irks me...

    Sick mom, sick kids...oh, boy!

    It is going around. Everyone around here has had the flu and I am just hoping that I don't get it. I am so tired and worn down right now, that it will hit me especially hard if I get sick.

    Savory Dressing

    They didn't cook their stuffing in the bird either. My sister in law cooked it in the slow cooker. I am not sure why, since she had a 20 pound turkey. She doesn't really have a whole lot of cooking experience when it comes to holiday meals though.

    Back to work!

    I am paying up some bills this week so that I don't have to worry about anything until January. I am so excited to have the extra cash. I am still really tired, but I can make it a few weeks. I worked from 4 AM to 9 AM this morning and I am going back from 5 PM - 8PM. Tomorrow, I work from 4 AM...

    Back to work!

    I have been working there every holiday season for the last few years. I am so tired, but it will get easier. It is only for a few weeks, so I can handle it. There will be plenty of time to sleep after the holidays.

    bites inside of mouth

    I have scars in my mouth because I had a couple seizures when I was younger. While in the middle of them, I bit the insides of my mouth several times. I bite myself a lot and I guess that there is not much that you can do to stop it. Maybe your dentist can help.

    Savory Dressing

    That is awesome! Maybe you can give the recipe to my in-laws because they had some of the worst dressing I have ever eaten. It was like eating mushy bread. I make some pretty good dressing myself. I add lemon juice, cream, and prosciutto.

    Back to work!

    It is only a seasonal position, but I will be bringing in an extra $500 a week for the next 5 weeks. I am so excited! Not having to constantly stress about how I am going to pay bills is going to let me be a whole lot less stressed. I might even be able to put a little away for later.

    The Brain Garage

    That sounds pretty interesting! I will definitely be heading over there. I think that is pretty cool. I am always interested in things that can help me "train" my brain. Thanks for sharing!

    New scar

    Yes, I have been using Vitamin E, but it is still going to be a pretty one. Just the sheer size of it is the problem. It is smaller than the original cut, but it is still pretty big.

    Too many rich treats

    I am sure that is the problem. Animals are much like humans that way. I hope that they start to feel better because having sick animals is never fun. Hopefully they aren't making messes in the house!

    New scar

    After bouncing down a few steps and repelling off the edge of my basement stairs, I ended up with a new scar. It runs down my left side from just under my bra line to my hip. It is going to be real pretty come bathing suit season!

    Are you cooking?

    I don't even know what we will be eating because my husband's family tends to go non-traditional when it comes to holiday meals. Last year for Christmas, we had baked spaghetti and the year before that, a nacho bar. I just hope that there is pie!

    Stinky Candles

    I like things that smell like food. I do not like floral or cologne type smells. I received one called midnight musk or something once for a gift. It smelled like old man's cologne. Needless to say, that one was re-gifted at a later date. I do know some people who like the new car smell and...

    Are you cooking?

    I am getting off easy this week. I just have to prepare a vegetable tray. Who has to cook the full meal? What are you preparing? How many people are you cooking for?
