Sounds lovely, Orryette!

I'm mucking out the kitchen cabinets. Getting rid of odd coffee cups and travel mugs we haven't used for years (Goodwill box), weeded out the overflowing cottage cheese container collection (my version of Tupperware, recycling bin), pitched bunches of expired supplements and pills, now I'm eyeing my cookbook collection, which takes up an entire shelf.

OK Dawgluver...step AWAY from the cookbooks! You need to curb that spring cleaning bug or move to the closets in the spare room or something!

I'm hanging out playing on this Springpad thing. I'm really enjoying it. Getting a bit irritated that I can't get a particular photo to show up though. Grr.

I finally found one. I have several staple removers and they were all hiding. Even DH's staple removers were hiding. I use them a lot during income tax season. I would just go to the store and get another one, but the car is in the shop. Aargh

Oh yeah, I'm doing tax returns.

I have one staple remover and it is horrifically lost. Can't find it anywhere. I was sure I left it on my desk.....um....er...... THAT's the problem! But at least it means I have a good excuse for not doing the shredding

That's not an excuse for me not to do the shredding. I have the monster shredder and it doesn't care if there are staples. 22 sheets at a time! I bought it last year because I got tired of the cheapos that took forever and jammed.

Finely ground 1/2 cup of tapioca. That's enough to thicken the blueberry filling for 4 pies.

We just got back from a shopping trip. Shrek was looking for specific shoes, one's I'd never heard of or seen pictures.

I also needed a new pair of shoes for the 10K next Saturday, found them!!! The shoes I wore last year are too big now...how the heck did that happen???

Shrek, still no shoes, so we headed to the Sports Outfitter, no luck, but I found a new wallet and purse on sale from my favorite maker.

Off to the sporting goods store, no shoes for Shrek, but I found a nice pair of "walking" socks that have the special lining to prevent blisters and have some light arch support.

Off to the mall and the shoe shop we should have started at in the first place, Shrek finally founds his shoes. And I found some neon purple shoe laces for my new shoes...

LOL! I got more stuff, but spent less money than Shrek did...
