If you are like me you have a pile of fast food menus laying around somewhere. Mine happened to be in a bin on the side of the frig. They started hanging out all over the place so I decided that something needed to change. I didn't really have anywhere to put them out of site... so I had to come out with another way to store them.
Then it dawned on me... what about a 3 ring binder? with dividers? I might be able to find them when needed? It isn't too fancy, but it works!
One of my favorite stores is Bed Bath and Beyond. I LOVE kitchen gadgets! While I was wandering around looking for things to waste my money on I saw this grease can. (I went back twice, I really wanted a grease can)
BUT I thought for $12.99 it should be way cuter than that! So I walked away, twice. (so proud of myself)
I was going to go buy a coffee can and make something simple, but I never got around to it. While I was cleaning up after our annual Halloween block party I remembered that I had 2 nacho cheese cans in the garage and they even came with lids!
I removed the labels, found some scrapbook paper that I liked, tore it up, and mod podged it to the cans.
This is what I ended up with:
my grease can
a grease can for my sister
They came out so cute that I don't want to put grease in mine!
Three questions that I think a just plain old dumb.
Once M and I were dating for a while everyone kept asking us when we were getting married. How are you supposed to answer that? Ummmm.... I don't know? Still waiting for him to ask?... ugh. We dated for about 5 years before he proposed, I heard that stupid question for at least 4 years...
Once we were married the question changed. So... how is married life? Does anyone ever say IT'S FANTASIC? It's great, but everything is changing, two lives are merging, it's a lot of hard work, and sometimes it sucks.
The question has changed again. When are you going to have kids? This one really sucks. Some don't want kids, some people can't have kids, and some people aren't ready. I would love to start a family (actually 5 years ago) but M isn't ready, so no kids yet. I am not always happy about this, most of the time it upsets me, but that is life. It will happen someday, hopefully soon, but until then I will continue to borrow children. Anyone want to lend me their kid(s)?
Anywho, I know they are just rhetorical questions, but still, I think that they are dumb.
It has been a while since my last post... I have had a lot on my mind, but not so much on my blog.
The Doe-Doe Dog
Doejah is now 10 years old. He is my best friend, my child, my love.
He has had 2 knees replaced, he had a 2 lb mass removed from his chest, cancer on his nose and several other little issues... he is allergic to dust, dust mites, and wool... but to me, he is perfect. He sleeps at my doorway when I am sick, he lays by the front door when I leave and waits until I get home to go back to bed, he loves help me in the garden (ok he just likes to chase the dirt), he loves to chase water but not swim, he just wants to lay around a cuddle, and be girls best friend.
Last week my friend had to put her doggie, Roxy, down.
Roxy, the little love bug
She wasn't your typical dog, she didn't want to play with Doejah or Vegah, didn't want to come in my apartment when I lived 1 door down, didn't run to the door when I came over... but she did like "crack an egg on her head" (bonk her in the head), get her butt rubbed, and cuddle! She was a silly girl, but a love bug for sure!
When I heard the news, I cried... I cried for D and J, I cried because I know that I too will have to make that decision, I cried because I don't know if I can do it. As I write... I cry.
ME!! It was a really long week at work. My dad and sister both attended an automotive conference this week so I was left to man the ship by myself. Oh Lordy, I am so glad that I don't have to do that everyday!
I typically run the front office with my sister... but this week I had to control the office AND the shop. That means that I had to think for 10 people and plan their next steps... My brain is totally fried and I didn't even finish 1/2 of my own work... so it's off to work in the morning to try to catch up!
The worst part is that I haven't had the brain power to blog, I am so behind on reading all my fav blogs, and I have no idea what is going on on Facebook! When I check FB all I see is blah blah blah... I can't retain any information!
