If your fridge breaks down right after a major shopping trip, dash to the nearest store selling ice and load up your freezer to keep it cold. Throw all perishables in the freezer, the lower the better! I left only my fruit and herbs in the fridge and put the meat and dairy in the freezer. Thankfully, the frozen food stayed frozen (well, except for the ice cream and popsicles) and the rest stayed cold!
If you run out of hair product and you're trimming expenses due to a lack of greenbacks, use a dime-size amount of conditioner instead! Works beautifully!! I may not ever go back to gel.
Two out of three kids are hacking away their days and it's only a matter of time for the third. It's croup for babes and just a cold for big kids. It gets easier as they get older and I'm grateful for that. Only the littlest (2 & 3/4) is clingy and whiny. Tonight will be an early bedtime for all 3 since they stayed up late with Papa last night. Now he's off again to earn us some living. We'll miss him, but I'm looking forward to getting some work done around here.
As soon as the boy wakes (and I'd better wake him soon) we're off to put what little we have in the bank, return some library books and pick up some moving boxes from a generous person. I wish I had more to deposit so we had some wiggle room. Won't someone please respond to my Craigslist ads! The more we sell the less we have to pack (and then I can make a car payment!).
How's your life?
