Does this tip work well? I hate the odors/fumes from the oven cleaners... and now I have a gas stove instead of an electric.


I know baking powder and vinegar in your drains make them smell fresher. (remember making volcanos as kids in science classes?) it foams up and you rinse with hot water. A plumber friend of mine agrees it good for your pipes.

Off to brave the mall. Have to buy one present, pay a bill, and may pop into the grocery store for a thing or two. Then home, 'cause I'm sure the mall will be nuts later. Have to come home & finish the block for Poppet I'm working on. Then I need to start working on tags and wrapping presents.

Only problem with taking off the ships everywhere is that you are losing a huge number of possible buyers. Is it insured if you send it international priority? Then you could just offer that method.

Arlene honestly I haven't tried it in the oven but I've seen a couple of blogs that show pictures saying it worked. I did use this to clean my kitchen sink recently and the rag was pretty gross when I got done scrubbing with the paste.

I've been using the baking soda & vinegar in the drains for years.

I've got to go out tomorrow and try to find a couple of small things for hubby from the boys. Thinking about somethings from Lowes so that I can avoid the mall. I was going to do it today but with the nasty weather and the horrendous traffic by the mall I didn't stop by there when I went out to Js.

home from the visitation and supper. My friend just bought a condo- it's really making me want to stop renting and look at buying BUT I would have to save quite a bit for the down payment and such. It would take a LONG time to do so.

I miss the days of renting! Home repair and maintenance is expensive especially when you can't or don't have time to do it yourself.

and that's what I told her- that that is my fear- now, if the hot water heater stops working- I just make a phone call to my landlord and it's his responsibility. BUT, I miss my space that I had. However, with rental prices here- I could have a mortgage payment for what a 2 bedroom apt costs.

she had a3.98% loan and with the homeowners association fee she is paying around 650/month. (that's a 120000)

I looked at a mortgage calc and for 110000 (which in another part of town there are nice ones for 90000) at 5% for 30 years it's app. 520.

I pay 420 for my rent which includes cable and another 52 for a storage facility....

anyway, I am going to go do some cleaning and finish wrapping. My bag is packed except for the last minute stuff and I want to get out of here around 6 or 6:30. My plan is to get up as if I am going to school and then should be there by 1 if traffic holds up. Trying to decide if I want to make a pit stop at Archivers (which I will literally pass on the detour in Louisville) on the way up or on the way home.

The coupon I have is good until the end of the month but that's about the time I make a pit stop anyway... If I leave at 6:30 I would hit it around 10:30 before the mob hits the mall where the store is. It's on the detour but the way back it is NOT a detour and would be out of the way....

Made it home from the mall, though I was longer than I hoped.
Having a very unhealthy, but yummy supper which I am thoroughly enjoying - can't remember the last time I made this - must be at least six months to a year or more. Nachos.
Then I gotta get cracking on Poppet's last block.

Well I will try it Suzanne, but not til next week... got a feeling the next few days are not going to be fun. I just got out of the recliner and went to the guest bath (closest to the recliner) and then in here to check board. Am not doing well tonight and will slowly work my way back across the house to my bedroom.

Beware Jen Marie --- there are lots of lovelies in the new mini.... and Oh My Goodness the DSP in the SAB (Sale*A*Bration) catalog is the prettiest SU has ever made! In addition to the lovely prints and colors, the designs are small -- easy for scrappin or cardmaking.

Okay ladies, I will visit later. Off to the other side of the house to my nice soft bed. Time to STOP all motion -- it makes me dizzy and nauseous -- not a happy combo.
