Adventure #1:

I had to completely take apart my electric pencil sharpener today. My girl sharpens those "grease" pencil type colored pencils in it even tho I have given her many of the little hand held to sharpen them in. Two problems - 1 -those greasy soft pencils are toxic to the electric sharpeners
2 - she never dumps the dang shavings hopper until it won't fit another fart in it and the whole inside is clogged!!


It stopped working and mom had to play doctor!!

1 - There was an entire tip of a grease pencil broken off in the blades.
the whole inside was greasy
2 - There was so much shavings stuck inside the works I had to bang, blow and cuss at it!!

It now works!!


Adventure # 2:

My girl and I took apart and inventoried my hall pantry.

I now have a spreadsheet listing - Product, Brand, Variety, Size, Quanity and the shelf it is on.

I will print it out and put it on the inside off the door.

I have 2 more closets/pantries to inventory (one is my spice closet).

And I am pulling an all nighter!!
Very productive! Good job...I might make some lunch in a few hours.

Lunch - I have a piece of unsliced raw flank steak I will either slice and pan fry or stove top grill then slice. Served baby spinch based salad - tomatoes and mushroom, raw broccoli, slivered almonds, cheddar or blue cheese and whatever else I find that appeals to me at the time and good seasons dressing.
