Always Learning.....

What a wonderful weekend it was. The weather was nice, Irv got a lot done in the yard....I'm sure he is feeling it today....and I got a lot done in my etsy shop FourDogDay! Here are a couple of my new eye glass cases. I really like them and have a bunch more cut out ready to be made. There are a couple of others listed in my shop already. You can click here if you want to take a peek.

Have you ever noticed when you buy something and you hope to heck it doesn't shrink a speck when you wash it that it always does....but then when you buy something and you need it to shrink...and you throw it in the washer AND in the dryer....it doesn't shrink at all? Man I hate that!

I learned this weekend that 6 gluten free crackers with hummus and olive tapenade and an apple really can be a meal! I also learned that when you know you can't eat wheat and you eat it anyway....you will be congested and then have a runny nose for a long time after. Why do I insist on doing that?

I also found out this weekend that even though the sales person at Dish Network told me we would get all of the channels that the Cubs play on, and even though the installer stood here in my living room and guaranteed me that we would get every channel that the Cubs play on......that still might not be true. I was just told that it would be another $5.00 per month to get Comcast Sports Network which the Cubs play MANY of their games on. Kathy is NOT a happy little Cubs fan right now. :(

On that note, I need to scoot. Make it an awesome day and be sure to do something nice for yourself today!

Stuff never shrinks when I need it to, either.

Sometimes it works, though. My daughter recently bought me a Lily the Bear T-Shirt. It was pretty big so it went into the dryer and now it's perfect!

Why do they do that? they just tell blatant fibs to get you to sign on and then the truth comes out, there is nothing more guaranteed to make me mad!!! sorry about the shrinking problem I think we all have that one, I am trying to shrink my body at the moment and it is such hard work but if I want to look good for Kate's wedding I have a whole lot of shrinking to do. I power walk every day and everything nice to eat is banned from this house.
Love Jillxx

I find it very frustrating when people just tell me what I want to hear and then I find out differently.
