And, if I may, second what taxlady said.

Sprout, depending on where you are in MD, a day trip to the Eastern Shore will get you to the Atlantic. Just leave EARLY in the morning, the traffic over the Annapolis bridge can be murder.

I'm sorry you aren't feeling well, Kades! Sounds like a Vick's night! Play with the kiddos and then eat a good dinner, then off to bed! Hugs!

One of those little ones that I know has been brought up before. But darned it all!! I was baking something that required the use of no cutting blades at all. Then I went to open an easy-open, re-sealable plastic bag and no amount of muscle would rip the opening where it said to tear. So into the drawer and pull out a paring knife. It still wouldn't open correctly .... and I cut my finger. Just a very small cut, but it hit a spot on my finger that bled profusely. The next time someone gives me Amish Friendship Bread batter, I swear, straight into the trash!

Claire, those "tear here" packages only tear sometimes and the resealable ones rarely do. I just always use my kitchen shears. Paring knives are made for cutting fingers.

Sorry about your boo boo. {{{KISS}}}} There, all better.

My vent for the day.. inconsiderate people at the grocery store check out!!! Arrrggggg!!!

I usually use the self-checkout at the one local store I shop at. Today I ended up behind this person who kept stopping to answer her text messages while she was scanning her items and then stopped completely to take a call. I know it wasn't an important call because what I heard was" ..Hello.. nothin just shoopping you? ..yeah.. so what you doin this afternoon?" ARRRGGGGGG! Is it that hard to not answer a text or not take a call???

Then, yes, there is still more.

As I was bagging my groceries, another person came in behind me and instead of waiting until I finished bagging, started scanning and sending their groceries into mine. Did they not think the cans of soup or the cantaloupe were not going to roll down into my stuff?!?!!?

Sorry Dave, that goes on all the time. I make DH angry when I stop turn around and nicely ask, want me to put this all back so YOU con go home 2 min sooner? He feels you catch more flies with honey than vinegar.

Yesterday I went to a store that carries paints, jewels and things I need to make shirts and hats for me and the kids. I was in line paying by check for my purchases when this woman dressed to the nines pushed in beside me I stumbled and DH grabbed me because he was afraid I'd fall. Now I understand being in a hurry but I was using my walker because i had been ill and was a little wobbley , All I got from this woman was Sorry I'm in a hurry, party you know. WELL lady I didn't know but I hope you had fun. Both my grand kids had big eyes at this behavior. So we sat down in the truck and talked about it. They know to wait your turn and be polite. Ahhh life sometime isn't fair. What would you say to this person? I said nothing picked up my things and walked out with my kids and DH and hearing her say Well, she could of at least said it's ok
