I got home a little later, so I ended up wrapping only 6 presents. Essentially could have wrapped all the books together, but thought it’d be more fun for my niece to open them one by one. My niece and nephew love their books! But...

katsmeow1213 They look so nice! I'm an all or nothing type of person. I wouldn't be able to wrap a couple at a time and put the rest off. Once I sit down to wrap, I do it until it's done. Usually that means the last few don't look as nice as the first ones because by then...

I remember as a child I wanted a Chatty Cathy doll more then anything else but I didn't get it. We were a family of six girls so there wasn't a lot of money to spend on such things. We always got a doll but we never got a talking...

Do you remember the days of Blockbuster Video? Hollywood Video? Or the other chains that rented movies and games? Netflix pretty much put them all out of business. And after they did that, they of course then raised their prices....

The show I am currently watching on Hulu is called Bunheads - surprisingly, I'm not a fan of ballet but I've been enjoying the TV show lately. While watching TV, I multi-tasked and was able to finish wrapping 10 presents tonight....

For the last few days it has snowed quite a lot over the nights and during the days. I drove my best friend to her surgery yesterday and I was glad to have clear roads. It did snow all day but it was fluffy and beautiful, not...

katsmeow1213 My parents are gone and I do miss them, but I still have my kids (only 1 has moved out, but lives close) and my hubby. I'm sure the day will come when it feels lonely and sad.. but that day is a ways off. You'll be able to see your grandkids, right? That will...

Hi all. It's been a while since I've posted. AGAIN. Seems like when I have something to say, I just don't feel like posting. Also, I've been very into politics. Maybe I'll post about that later. The reason I am posting now is...

With Christmas fast approaching people are preparing all their Christmas goodies to be enjoyed over the holidays. One of my favorite treats at Christmas time is fruit cake. My mom and my sister use to make the best fruitcakes but...

katsmeow1213 I do like fruitcake. I don't think I've ever had homemade.

Our Ice Princess has been back on the ice for almost two weeks, after fracturing her heel in off-ice practice. She was cleared by her orthopedic surgeon, but still is required to have therapy to prevent future issues. The Ice...

We have a number of rabbits at our place and it seems impossible to keep their numbers down. We did stop them getting under our shed but now they have a new hole a few metres from the shed and are burrowing under it again. These...

When shopping do you prefer the self self-checkout lane or do you prefer a cashier and why? I always go to the cashier. I never use the self checkouts because to me they are taking a job away from somebody and we need the jobs...

I am either pathetic or silly. It is almost 4pm, and I have only taken a half of a pain pill. That makes me ecstatic. I take prescription pain medication, and most of you are familiar with my back and neck issues due to a car...

I have a friend who is always late. We were going to go out for lunch tomorrow after church (we go to different churches). An hour after the time she was supposed to come get me (we trade off on who picks up who), she texted me...

While reading the paper and watching the news seeing more and more women coming out and telling their history with men who disrespect women, I thought of my youth. Back in the olden days people didn't talk about it and its...

katsmeow1213 Yes I have, and it's gone further than harassment.. I was about to say that it hadn't happened in years, but then I remembered that wasn't true.. It happened a few years back when I worked an overnight job at a gas station, drunks would come in and say nasty...

Here is the Ice Princess in her boot for her fractured heel. She is standing in the middle of a busy New York City street closed to traffic. Why? She had a free pass to see the Macys Day Parade with her family and friends. The...

I read this a while ago, and it resonated with me so much I shared it with my dad, who went on to use it in one of his sermons. "In the 13th century, King Frederick II conducted an experiment with 50 infants to determine what...

In exactly one week we will be flying to our winter home in South Florida for four months. I have my usual mixed emotions. I love our two bedroom, two bath condo on the water. I love the sunshine and warmth. I enjoy our condo...

katsmeow1213 I want to come visit you!! We are going to try yet again to plan a trip to Florida in the spring. This time we're not planning on Orlando and all the fixings... we're thinking just go somewhere in Florida and stay a few days. Shouldn't be any more expensive...

I will admit I am a little sheltered. Today I learned about a popular Over the Counter medication that opioid addicts are using when they cannot get their drug of choice.Some of them are dying from it. I am refraining from...

katsmeow1213 On one hand, yeah, I feel like an addict would already know.. But there's teenagers out there who may not have access to drugs and if they find out there's something possibly in their parents medicine cabinet that could get them high, well I'm sure they'd run...
