Sorry in advance for the lack of cohesion in this post...
This is a cleaning product that looks like a large bar of soap, my mother-in-law told me about it and apparently it only costs 97 cents at Wal-Mart (I don't know that for a fact because she bought it for me). This little bar is amazing! I frequently use Spray and Wash or Shout to get stains out of our (mostly Eli's) clothes, or even spills on the carpet, but I feel like with a messy little boy I'm going through bottles of this stuff like crazy and it's not the cheapest... so I tried this Fels-napha bar on some stains and it worked great! I then tried it on some stains that had already been treated and washed with Spray and Wash but never came out. Wouldn't you know it, they came right out with Fels-naptha! Then, Eli recently spit up some blueberries on the carpet, we had just moved in and I didn't have any carpet stain remover. I was panicked that the stain would never come out so I improvised and gave Fels-naptha a try. Although this product is made for treating clothing, yet again, it did the trick! I just wet the edge of the bar with water and rub it onto the stain, then rub it in with a wet cloth and either let it sit for a while before throwing it in the wash or, if you're using it on carpet just scrub it really well and voi-la! I think one bar might just last forever as I use it almost daily and still have most of it left, so for 97 cents, I'd say give it a try!
Once again, our annual Costco membership was up for renewal and while we usually just renew it without thinking twice, this year we thought, maybe we should give Sam's a try? If you're like us and have considered switching from Costco to Sam's, I would advise you not to. If you have a Sam's membership instead of Costco, you don't know what you're missing! Simply put, Costco is WAY better (in my opinion) and although the membership is more expensive (a measly $10 more per year), their prices are MUCH cheaper. If you buy your produce from Costco, in addition to being organic without the added cost of most grocery stores, it is MUCH better quality. I will say one good thing about Sam's, they have giant bags of Sister Schubert frozen rolls- if you have not tried these, again, you don't know what you're missing!
3 days. 2 weeks. 11 months.
I was recently looking through Eli's newborn pictures, I guess just to reminisce of how exciting it is to have a new little family member. It occurred to me that he looks nothing like he did when he was born. His hair even seems to be turning blonde. I think that's common, but still kind of weird.
Marital Conflict: A speaker came to one of Jason's classes and advised the students that if they want a successful career and they don't already play golf, they had better start. This is apparently important among the Corporate American world. So, Jason decided to pick up golf with a bunch of guys from his program. Among all the suits, dress slacks, shirts, ties, shoes, computer and phone (these two because his old computer and phone were through his work) he's had to acquire for school, now they want him to pick up GOLF? Like, the most expensive sport EVER. Anyway, I told him that's a pretty expensive sport to start playing on top of tuition... he said it's an investment in his career. I complained that I want to have expensive gadgets/clothes and hobbies and write them off as an investment in my "career" too. He said he wants to go to Florida next week and hang out on the beach. He then reminded me that I've spent a combined 2 of the last 12 months on various vacations, mostly without him, and that next week Eli and I are headed to Florida, once again, without him. In conclusion, the grass isn't always greener. Touchė Jason. I attribute his greater wisdom to the fact that he's MUCH more advanced in years ;)
IPAD- Well, if golf helps Jason's career, I think an Ipad would help mine. There are interactive games and storybooks, in addition to shows and movies I could download for Eli, making any public outing much more pleasant. I want one. Think I could convince Jason?
