I'm continuing my kitchen cabinet cleanout. Took out a 3 foot stack of cookbooks last night that I'm hoping the library will take. Today, I'm shocked at the amount of cocktail and dinner napkins I have, most still in their original packages. Good gravy, apparently I'm a hoarder.

A stack of cocktail napkins does not make one a Hoarder Dawg. It just shows you aren't drinking enough. I have more stuff set aside for our garage sale than I can display in the 2-car garage! I'd post pictures, but I'm afraid DC doesn't have enough band width...or whatever the "space" is called at a website.



I'm heading out to my Happy Place (Market Basket) mostly to congratulate the associates for getting Their Boss back. And to see if they have any Miracle Whip in the salad dressing aisle. We're having fried fish for supper tonight and I thought I'd try the Chief's way of making coleslaw with MW. I'm pretty sure we haven't had that in our home since we got married almost 40 years ago! Like everything else, it's probably changed by now. I'm sure their "quart" is down to 30 or 29 ounces too.

I'll take that under advisement, CG. My stack of napkins rivals my stack of cookbooks...

There is a restaurant back home that makes a wonderful coleslaw and I've heard that their base is Miracle Whip, with just a couple things added. I don't want that stuff on my sandwich, but it sure is great in a coleslaw!

I had a small stash of those "too nice to use napkins" for so long they started to become "too nasty to use"! I finally just started to use them instead of paper towels until they were gone. It did free up a small space in the closet that almost immediately disappeared!

I hear ya, AB. I put some in the car along with some of the wrapped takeout plasticware, of which I also had a huge collection. I left a small stack in the cupboard to use as paper towels. Geez, I had napkins left over from our wedding reception, almost 30 years ago!

Every time we go to Ikea Rob stocks up on colored napkins. He feels the need to buy them there because that's where we got the napkin holder... For a while, he wouldn't want to use them up too quickly so he would want to share my napkin at dinner, (he'd use it after I was done). That all stopped when I told him he reminded me of his mother,

Now we can use them freely.

Most of my unopened napkin stash came from a friend who had also given us a set of plexiglass coasters, where you would switch out the napkins according to season. It was always her hostess gift. I just threw them up in the cupboard.

DH and I share our wet hand wipes. Once we were at the airport awaiting a flight, and had breakfast. I'd put a used wet hand wipe on an empty plate, along with a used kleenex, planning to throw them away when we left. To my shock, DH started wiping his hands with my used kleenex, thinking it was the wet wipe! It still cracks us up!

It usually goes, "you know I wiped my nose with that Rob?" Now he'll ask if I wiped my nose with it before he uses it,

I'm trying to finish my adult Bible study chapter for Sunday. And I mean trying.

These three terrorist kittens are going to drive me over the edge of sanity sooner or later. If it isn't my pencil, it's my workbook they're monstering. If it's not the study book, it's my very pricey study Bible. If it's not the Concordance, it's my notebook. When all else fails, they turn off my keyboard, climb my back, chew on my knuckles, swat my jump drive off the desk, run off with a stylus, climb my legs, and then try to kill each other under the desk on my feet.

I have to go. My Nook just sailed off the desk.
