I'm continuing with the mucking out of cabinets. So far, have spared the cookbooks. How can 2 people accumulate so much &#@%???

I have discovered DH is a collecter and hoarder of lip balm (8 tubes, 6 still in the package, plus probably a dozen more squirreled throughout the house) and old prescription eyeglasses.

Your DH and I have something in common. I must have 20-30 lip balms. I always seem to be out and about when I realize I don't have any. But then, the tube I carry in my pocket at work looks ratty, since I will use that one until it's gone.

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...
When I lose weight, I go down a shoe size. In the last two years I've lost around 75 pounds and a shoe size. I have a pair of leather slip on shoes from LLbean that I love, but my feet now swim in them. I've had to adjust the straps on my Birkenstocks (no I don't wear them with socks, )

At the laundry-mat. Texting the hubby because it's noisy in here today and surfing DC.

Feels good to finally get back home today. We have been spending every weekend at dh's homeplace. Still continuing to go through an enormous amount of everything. His late father loved auctions. there is a 3 bedroom home, a double garage & 5 out buildings full to the top. We have been working on it for about a month. All the kids(4) want to have an auction by May 12th. It's only giving us all about 3 weeks to get through it all. We live 1 1/2 hours from there where as most of them live around the area. May has always been a busy, crazy month at work & we are still short staffed. Just trying to keep my sanity these days.
Thanks for letting me vent.

Laying on the couch under a cozy blanket trying to keep warm even though it is a very mild day, keeping my leg up and on ice to get the swelling down and watching the Canucks - so far so good, we scored the first goal with 5 minutes left in the first period!

Oh yeah, and not talking or screaming (at the TV) thanks to my throat/sinus infection!

I'm crabbing about the weather. It's nippy out - damp and breezy. We're expecting mixed precipitation overnight and tomorrow. That's mixed with snow!

When you get done playing with the recipes are you going to make them?

I'm done, got the mini pie recipes sorted into sweet and savory and posted in their own threads. I hope this is a good solution for everyone. But, I wasn't able to do it the way I wanted, so I had to do a work around.
