    One of my customers at work has a huge account that takes a lot of my time and effort. It's a monthly order we've been running for about a year. Well, last month's order was totally the order from hell... and really had me tearing my hair out. I took calls on weekends, emails from home (and...

    Some are true. :couch: right? HAPPINESS To be happy with a man, you must understand him a lot and love him a little. To be happy with a woman, you must love her a lot and not try to understand her at all. MEMORY Any married man should forget his mistakes, there's no use in two people...

    Just a random thought - why do people park their cars on the street when they have a really long or double wide driveway? I mean I can see if you have kids and you want them to play there instead of the sidewalk/street OR if you need to the car shuffle with the spouse but why do people do this...

    My mother just gave me her stand mixer. She's only used it once to make my wedding cake. I love it and I'm looking forward to using it. The first thing I'm going to make with it is the homemade marshmallows I've been saying I'm going to learn to make. Can't do it without a stand mixer as there...

    I was out running all my errands w/ both of my kiddos. My youngest is 2. Well, she had an accident. Not a little one but a big one. I'll leave the TMI out of it but she christened a chair in the library and our local branch here doesn't have a public restroom. Some kind sole of a lady gave...

    What are you running out of? I spent this morning cleaning and just finished the last of the laundry detergent, and I've had to take off the dispensers on my facial cleaner, my moisturizer, and my body scrub to start getting the last bits of them. I also just finished the last tab of...

    Hey, I just wanted to say "Thanks" to Sara and Gabe for this new feature. I never really thought much about checking out the albums, unless someone specifically said that there was something they wanted us to check out. I've really been enjoying seeing the random albums upon logging in and...

    I couldn't find a place to put it...I'm sure there is an easy solution I am just not seeing. I got my taskbar (I think that is what it is called, the bar at the bottom of a windows desktop) stuck on the right side of the screen somehow. I cannot get it back on the bottom, and I really want it...
