I have a confession to make, I love to finish off the bottle!  There is a great feeling when you have the last of it in there, in the evening after the kids are asleep, and you finish it right off. 

What is it you ask?  Anything.  I love finishing it.  Now I am not talking hard booze here.  I am actually talking about lotions, shampoo, chap-stick, deodorant, oil, salad dressing, ETC. 

I hate having these containers around when they have this minuscule amount of product in it.  It takes up room and is just plain annoying.  When I finally get to finish it off, it’s a sigh of relief.  I have finally succeeded.  It is gone! Kaput!  Time for a celebration dance (ok, too much information).

Am I the only one in this strange ritual?  Do you also share in this feeling of accomplishment?

Have a “Finisher Off” Day

OK, before I knew it was Ground Hog’s Day I got up feeling like I really wanted to share a happy morning with the kids.  Now I always want this, but you know how Monday’s can start off.
I gave my son a hug and said Happy Monday.  Today is Feb 2nd, 2009 and it’s the only one you will ever have in your life.  He shot back, “I guess everyday is a holiday then, huh Mom.”  Well I guess it is.
Have a “Celebrating” Day!

Hmm…….

Why is it that when we finally start to get confortable in our own skin, our skin is no longer comfortable with us?

Did you know…

Today is National Puzzle Day?

Have a “Thought Provoking” Day!

As we recently painted our house I am reminded, that although I like to do things well, I am hardly a Martha (S).  I am a Real World Martha and here’s why:

(Martha) Pick best paint                                         

(RWM) Pick paint you can afford

(Martha) Wash down all walls of bird poop and dirt.                              

 (RWM) Get the big chunks off and try to paint over the rest.

(Martha) Caulk all areas for a perfect finish.            

(RWM) “Ooops, ran out of caulk.  Will have to add more paint in those places.”

(Martha) Use Primer                                                

(RWM) “What’s Primer?”

(Martha) Have proper tools on hand.                                    

 (RWM)” Has anyone seen the small paintbrush I was using?”

(Martha) Replace all parts that are dented, worn, and have old paint that can’t be removed.    

 (RWM) Is anyone really going to notice?

Well those are just some of the difference I am sure.  I do know that I am happy and it looks pretty decent. 

P.S. – That’s not our house in the pic above.  It’s just a pic that would fit in that space 🙂 

Have a “Real World Martha” Day!

 

 

I received this from my friend Anel.  You will LOVE this craft! (But if the pic doesn’t show up you won’t be able to do it…in fact PLEASE let me know if it doesn’t pull up or it won’t be useful).

My dear friends,

Somewhat embarrassing to admit, I’m not getting an annual bonus and
Christmas is tight this year. I will be making bedroom slippers for you
all as gifts. Please let me know your sizes. You’ll most likely agree
that it’s a splendid idea, and should you wish to do the same, I’ve
included the instructions below.

How to make bedroom slippers out of maxi pads:

You need four maxi pads to make a pair.
Two of them get laid out flat, for the foot part.
The other two wrap around the toe area to form the top.
Tape or glue each side of the top pieces to the bottom of the foot part.

Decorate the tops with whatever you desire, silk flowers (this is most
aesthetically appealing), etc.

These slippers are:
* Soft and Hygienic
* Non-slip grip strips on the soles
* Built in deodorant feature keeps feet smelling fresh
* No more bending over to mop up spills
* Disposable and biodegradable
* Environmentally safe
* Three convenient sizes: (1.) Regular, (2.) Light and (3.) Get out the Sand Bags.

I’ve attached a photo of the first pair I made so that you can see the
nifty slippers for yourself….

Awaiting you r response. It’s crucial that I get the right size for each
one of you.
