5 Things Friday

It's time again for 5 Things Friday! We are started off each week by Carla at My 1/2 Dozen Daily. For new readers, 5 Things Friday is an opportunity for me to share 5 random thoughts with you! So, let's get started...

ONE...This week I got really frustrated with my mom and very nearly made the mistake of playing "tit for tat". Fortunately, I was able to counsel with some very wise women who helped me to see that 1) Two wrongs don't make a right; 2) My mom is not likely to change at this late stage in her life; and 3) "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." Thank you ladies for your help and guidance!

TWO...I am starting to hyperventilate about being ready for Christmas! Slow down, breathe and do the next thing on my "to do" list!

THREE...What is it about men and electronics?!!! I don't think I will ever understand. Do we REALLY need surround sound in our bedroom? I don't think I really appreciate surround sound in the living room!

FOUR...Did you know that vinegar stops itching? I was using an aloe vera based cream that is $50/jar because it made my itching tolerable but vinegar does the same thing at a fraction of the cost. Check out 1001 Uses for White Distilled Vinegar.

FIVE...Is there anything in your house you would change if you had the money to do so? I would enlarge my bedroom/bathroom so I could have a walk-in closet and a big bathtub:) Second on that list would be new kitchen cupboards but I would be totally happy with the closet that would be easier to access!

Well, that's it for me on this fine Friday! Have a great weekend! 



  1. Hubby just bought surround sound too... Does nothing for me, but whatever... ;) lol! If I could change anything... I'd buy a REALLY nice bedroom set & do out entire house in hardwood flooring!

  2. I'm with you on the hardwood floor. I am ready to say bye-bye to carpet!
