The cable bill would be gone (frugal), I wouldn't have to suffer through anymore (un)reality shows, I'd miss the the whole ridiculous political campaign lie-athon, Christmas and Thanksgiving could actually be about....Christmas and Thanksgiving,and when I call folks...

    In our dining room, there's a small section where ants are coming into the house. They're black ants, but there are also queen ants too (DS12 has squashed five or six queens the first time and there were five more today trying to escape through our window). DH is sitting at the spot where...

    I'm trying to get our house together, and I have to really pare down the clutter. It always leads to big arguments with my husband and he refuses to help me move the heavy pieces everything stays where is was. I just absolutely hate it and it causes me alot of emotional stress, anxiety and...

    Now I understand why most of the German houses around this area have their kitchens on the second floor! My base housing kitchen is on the ground floor. Every night I take out the trash, wipe down all kitchen counters, sweep and mop the entire downstairs. Pet food is upstairs. But I still...

    Thought I'd share them in the event anyone is struggling with fleas this season If the kittens have fleas, then they are in your house. Oil of American Cedar Leaf is what I've used for years with great success. It is a bit costly, and you put 2-3 drops on pieces of brown bag in every corner of...

    Well, I had let my own haircolor grow out completely and had it that way for months. I guess I was bored with it, and decided to apply some L'oreal light ashe blonde (preference). That's the color I used to use. I always had trouble with brassiness (WAY too much red/gold) when coloring, but...

For me, it has always been books, however, last year I finally went through and purged every book, except for the ones that I believed I would read again, and...

    It started at 8 am sharp yesterday, a call from some collector asking for a John Doe, who is not us, nor do we know him. I nicely explained they had the wrong #. Well, they called ALL DAY I have even explained to a supervisor this is OUR # we've had for almost 7 years, do a little research! They...

    I spent about an hour cleaning the bathroom today with bleach water. :ugh: Now I can't get the smell of bleach out of my nose. It's even making my eyes water. I took a shower after I finished cleaning the bathroom, but that was four hours ago. Is there any way to get rid of the foul odor in...

    It's growing in the grout in my shower. I have tried bathroom cleaner, straight bleach, and peroxide+baking soda and none of that has worked. Anyone have a sure thing?
