in What I Learned This Week

I’ve been busier than a raccoon in a trash-pile today.

It’s consignment sale week and I’ve been busy trying to get all of the items typed into the computer so that I could print the tags. I have piles of clothing and stacks of shoes†all over my living room, and that drives me nine kinds of crazy!

I might have been able to get it all done, but I had to stop several times, once to take†Stevie to the Orthodontist†and then again when†McDaddy and I had†attended a Middle School meeting and a parent planning meeting at Scouts.

Plus, I actually cooked today, so GO ME!

Here’s what I learned this week.

1. The new talking EpiPen†(Auvi-Q) is a great invention. The School nurse asked to borrow my trainer so that she could train the staff to use it.

2. Before buying a greeting card you should look at the price. I was shocked when I looked at my Wal-Mart receipt recently and discovered I had paid $6.47 for a greeting card. (Really, Hallmark?)

3. When your seven year-old tells you that he saw a snake in the garage, you should not automatically assume that he saw a lizard.

4. Only one exterminating company†in our area treats for snakes.

5. Once it is confirmed that there is indeed a snake in your garage, you will be a nervous crazy person each and every time you have to go back out there.

6. I should have purchased†a whitehead/blackhead remover tool years ago.

7. I should have stopped purchasing Little Debbie’s years ago.

8. Silas Merritt Robertson might be one of the funniest individuals on the planet.

9. Breathe-Right nasal strips are a waste of money.

10. Corn on the cob should not be boiled more than eight minutes.

Thatís what I learned this week.

Little Debbie’s are evil…….but good. Perhaps you should have given one to the snake? ;)
