This week’s questions {week of 2/21/11}:
1.  How do you compile grocery list – by an inventory, or writing things as you run out?
2.  At what age do you plan on retiring (or your spouse retiring)?
3.  What do you plan on doing when you retire?

Simply Disgusting

I have been meaning to post about this nasty subject for quite a while.  And it was confirmed to me that I should after twice in one week experiencing the phenomenon of being in a public restroom and having someone walk out without washing their hands.

Shame on you people for spreading your germs and yuck around.  You are revolting.  Do you somehow think that after doing your business and wiping you are magically germ-free? Or after changing a diaper you are squeaky clean?

I remember reading an article a few years back about how there are less germs on the OUTSIDE of a bathroom door, than on the inside.  Ya'll KNOW what's on those knobs and door pulls don't you?

Which brings me to mention that I NEVER open a public restroom door with my bare hand. NEVER.  I'll use a paper towel or if none are available (due to there only being hand dryers)  I'll use the inside of my jacket.  It's just too risky not to.

Speaking of restrooms,  what's with hanging the toilet paper dispenser so low to the ground?
I constantly bump my knee or thigh on it, and then I have to crouch down so low to finagle my hand up into the dispenser to find the roll of paper.  Then, when said paper is found it's as thin as tissue paper.  Is this someones sick joke?  Why would I want to wipe my butt with something I can see through?  So I have to pull out like 20 feet of tissue paper to layer it into 2-ply at least.  I think I need to pack a roll of TP in my purse.

Oh, how about those faucets with no handles?  I can see the premise here-when you come out of the potty you spread your germs to the faucet, then wash and re-germ your hand when you go to shut off the faucet.  But really, those "magic" faucets never seem to work for me.  I go down the line from sink to sink then back and maybe get 10 seconds water time...it's so frustrating that maybe I won't wash MY hands next time....

EW.  Just kidding.  And as a back up I have hand sanitizer :)

Have a happy day peeps.  Be careful out there in those restrooms :D

Friday Confessional

Hello people.  Happy Friday to you.  It's time once again for Friday Confessional hosted by Glamazon and Mamarazzi.  To whom you can link up respectively.

I confess:

I read Flylady newsletters.  They are really inspirational.  I am "fluttering" right now in keeping my house in order, but hope to be able to get all flylady's routines down so the house "practically cleans itself"

I got rid of over 200 pounds of "stuff" from my house in January. (Thanks Flylady)

My 2nd daughters room is a freaking mess.  Do I clean it up again?  I hate babysitting her while she does it.  Takes her 2 hours, I could be done in 20 minutes.  Decisions decisions...

I want to repaint my bedroom.  Ever since hubs moved out...  I want to rearrange the furniture too, except it will only fit in one way 'cause the room is only 12 feet by 15 feet.

I really feel the need to put all of the pictures of our family into a box or album.  I have way too many in frames of "happier times" that I don't want to be reminded of.
I'm just worried that if the kids came home to a house with no pictures they'd be upset.  Any thoughts?

Has anybody gone through mediation as a means to divorce?  I am filing myself but have heard about mediation too.  I could use any advice you've got. I confess it would help put my mind at ease to know my options.

I confess I am strong and will make it through this!

Happy Friday my friends.

Small Enough

It's been a hectic week.  Had two sick kids, still filing my divorce papers, started a new job and have lots of thing to do for church.  I was feeling a little overwhelmed.  But then I cam across this.

Have a peaceful Sunday.  I know I will.
