    Debbie and Jean, you continue to inspire me.

    Jean, I didn't have any trouble giving mine away. I went right down to 1. I'll be giving more away soon, they add up quickly.

    Hmm...wonder what gives then. I'll have to try again later. I received one reply from someone saying giving them juju was the bright spot in their day. So I'm glad I did it.

    Okay, I'll fess up -- I don't understand what juju is. I've tried to figure it out but keep coming away ignorant (surprise!)..... anybody want to help out the clueless?

    Thanks!

    Went to the library today and an older lady was looking for a certain author. The library was packed and the girls all busy so I took her and showed her where they were located. I also had to run to Walmart and let 3 cars go in front of me.

    I received a kindness today: my sister sent us a box of clothes she'd found at Goodwill and St. Vincent's for the kids. Some didn't fit, but many did. The kids really liked it, and there was a darling dress for YDD.

    That was really nice of your sister! I loved getting surprises like that when my son was little.

    What's really great is that she nailed each individual emergent fashion sense. I'm sure they are wishing I understood them half so well!

    Mary if you go to the announcement forum, you'll see an explanation for juju's.

    Hee, hee. That is what Auntie's are for/like though. She is suppose to know those things because she is not busy taking care of them day in and day out like you are!

    Good job. I'm not sure I'd let 3 cars go in front of me, maybe one. Three is pretty darn good.

    It's amazing how kindness spreads, from one person to another. Love how your sister did this for you.

    Well, I don't know if I can file a kindness today. Does not exploding at DH about bathroom decor count? He has good taste generally, but it's very formal stuffy kind of stuff I don't like much. I want a spa atmosphere, but a free spirit kind. I went with his choice of pewter finish on the bath accessories, and his choice of shower curtain. But I stuck to my guns on the countertop dispensers/containers and the shower curtain hooks...which he said were tacky in the store and later admitted they looked okay. Sigh...

    I humoured him. I wanted to order some stuff through my brother (Quixtar), but DH wanted to replace the shower head right now! So we stopped at Home Outfitters and he bought his shower head. It's been installed already. That was the one thing he wanted. I'll still order a scale and some new towels through Quixtar.

    I was patient with the clerk in Home Outfitters who kept trying to tell me they didn't sell the item I took a picture of on their store shelf 24 hours ago. When it finally sunk into her brain the photo I had was actually taken at their store yesterday, she became a bit more accommodating. She went looking for a bar code to order one in for me (they were all out) ... It's a toilet paper/magazine rack...that will take 2 weeks to arrive. Oh well...delayed gratification is great!

    Made tea for DH when we arrived home.

    Jean

    Yes, not exploding at DH today counts!!! As well as making him tea when you got home even though he was stubborn.
