Clorox Wipes

I LOVE me some Clorox Wipes! They are great for counters and sinks and spots on floors and just wherever you would use a paper towel but better.

I have recently been seeing the commercials where they are using the wipes to clean mirrors. Prior to this, I have not used these on a mirror, but according to the commercial, they are amazeballs! No streaks! Perfect! Well....not so much!

I will definitely continue to use them but not for mirrors. I will have to break out my Invisible Glass to repair the streaks on this mirror! For the love!


A few years ago we had our basement waterproofed. There is a pump down there that takes the water from the basement and spews it out onto the road. Because of the super record making cold, the spewed water froze and created a wonderful ice slick behind the garage.

It doesn't look like much, but it is about 2 inches thick. I tried to break it up with a shovel, but it was pointless.

I love kids as much as the next person, but the kids in this neighborhood are so stupid and so disrespectful. They discovered the ice flow and were taking rocks and trying to break it up....not small rocks but big ones that had to be picked up so tires weren't ruined. Then they thought it was fun to try to "ski" on it.....for the love! I caught them more than once and told them to get off my property because if they went down and cracked their skulls opened then their parents would sue. I was nice the first time and asked the politely, the next time....not as nice but stern. It wasn't 15 minutes later before they were right back out there. One neighbor caught them trying to put more water down to make it thicker. Another neighbor did see one bust their ass on the ice. Idiots!

So I hit Home Depot thinking maybe sand was the answer. Well, went to the garden center and the sand was frozen solid. I could not even get a bag loose. Went back in and discovered that they had giant bags of salt. Who knew they would have that available in the South? So I bought 3 bags....

I dumped and scattered it and it was AMAZING how fast it melted the ice and how much the salt itself did NOT melt. I have to go back out and take another picture of what was the ice flow and is now the salt flow! Thank you Home Depot for helping me keep kids safe from themselves. Of course that is the nice way of me saying it because I have other names for those "sweet little children" but then I would just be mean.......


So having gas heat is great but also a beefer! I will wake up in the morning so dry that there is no liquid in my mouth....b/c I do snore and probably spend most of the night with my mouth gaping open. The girls drink a ton more water too. So I decided to get a humidifier.

My memories of humidifiers were these big blue things that made a ton of noise. BUT now they make super cute ones. I have a Cow humidifier. The humidity that comes out is cold and doesn't leave everything wet. It is a very fine mist. It gurgles every once in a while, but it sure does help! Got this one from QVC.....

You can see that the water/humidity/steam/whatever comes out of her horns and you fill up her head with water! Super cute!


Just discovered "Ax Men" on the History Channel. For the dangerous is that? Now I am not a tree hugger by any means, but it is kind of sad to see that land just stripped. These are some manly men, not necessarily in an attractive way but I have to give them props for the weather and danger they go through. They are some bad-asses!

And I just heard one the latest version that they plant trees to replace the ones they are cutting down. Now I don't feel so guilty for watching!
