    Life isn't always pleasant, but somewhere in your day something good happened. It's time to celebrate those little things. Did the vending machine drop two Snickers instead of one? Did someone tell you how nice you looked today? Share it here and give yourself a high-five.

    Just hung my first load of wash on my new clothesline! It might be silly, but it's taken a year to convince the hubs to put one up. He's several years younger than I am and comes from a family that always had the latest thing first, so they've never been without a dryer. I grew up old-timey...

    I don't know....My Mom and sisters and I used to have a 'community' drawer full of makeup and cosmetics when I was living at home. We all used it, the stuff stayed in there for YEARS. Nobody ever worried about eye infections, and stuff like that. It gave us all more colors/types to choose...
