  1. We freeze a half-full water bottle that's sitting straight up, then turn it on it's side. If the water is still in the same half, no problem. If the water is now on the half that's laying down, problem.
  2. The soap is a surfactant (I think that's the right word). It basically breaks the surface tension so they fall down in rather than staying on the surface.
  3. If I seem incommunicado for the rest of this week and next week, it's because I'm heading out for a conference on Sunday so I'm trying to get everything ready this week.
  4. We had wild storms coming through last night. Luckily no hail damage to the vehicles. Had a tornado watch/warning a few times. Probably need to get somebody out to check the roof. Some of our electric outlets seem to not be working now (I did flip the breaker and check the GFCI outlet). Hoping we don't have to call an electrician.
  5. I already have to introduce an app and a people software to all the folks up at church. I am NOT trying to explain more brand new technology any time soon.
  6. I get calls from local numbers, and I'm worried about blocking them since I work at a church and my cell phone number is out there for the church members to call if they need to. I've gotten a few calls from people who say they've missed a call from my number, and explained to them that it's scammers making it look like they're calling from a local number.
  7. Y'know, I'm kind of glad to have a weekend of peace & quiet while the kids are at their mother's. Makes car shopping a LOT easier.
  8. I should probably try that, along with the collagen I started adding back into my coffee today.
  9. When I lived in Austin, the only time I breathed clearly was when they accidentally put me on triple prescription antihistamines. Yes, yes, I definitely have seasonal allergies. I should argue with those more, apparently.
  10. It's occurred to me that all my joints are acting funny here the last few days, not just my wrists. They're just the worst. I'm guessing it's because I've been eating too much crap lately...
  11. So...did the weed-eating last Sunday. Wrists hurt for a few days, then then didn't bug me. Woke up Sunday with both hands just numb. No pins and needles like they went to sleep. Just no feeling at all when I first woke up. My wrists have hurt ever since. I think I'll be sleeping with the braces on tonight.
  12. I do believe I'm in between lengths as well, but I'm in between regulars and longs, and none of the stores out here want to carry longs!
  13. I tried to find new pants today. Pfffffffffffffft.
  14. In case you were wondering: I got distracted by other things.
  15. Got up early. Read, exercised, journaled, did dishes, had coffee, etc. Planning to hit the farmer's market this morning, but I plan that almost every Saturday and normally end up getting distracted by other things.
  16. So, I learned today that I am not in a good enough shape to do yard work. After weed-eating around the house and camper, my left arm feels like it's trying to fall asleep and is rather shaky when I try to use it. The boy walked in and went, "Wow, you're that red after just that?" Uh, yeah. That's why I don't normally do the yard work. I really need to get in better shape.
  17. 'tis a lovely theory, but I don't think I've ever heard of it working. Hubby & girl are off on a Boy Scouts camping trip (they joined an all-girls troop). Boy is going to mow the lawn today. I have a tea party at church this afternoon, and a dinner tonight, then church in the morning. And I'm tired already! I'm trying this new thing called "eating vegetables". We'll see how that goes.
  18. PB2. If you can't find it with the peanut butter, look for it with the protein powders. I wonder how long some of the non-dairy protein powders would last if vacuum-sealed and kept in the freezer.
  19. I saw these at Kohl's: https://www.amazon.com/OXO-Grips-4-Piece-Measuring-Beaker/dp/B008X5HRZU
  20. The asparagus in the store looks pretty. I might have bought 3 bundles. And they'll probably all be gone by...Tuesday.
  21. I used to work tech support for Cingular. LOTS of people would call in with weird little issues, and I'd ask them when the last time was that they'd turned it off. About 75% of the time, the answer was, "Now how would I do that?"
  22. I've had one freeze up on me a while back. Turned it off and back on, same issue. I just left it on the charger overnight, and when I went back to it the next morning, it acted like it had never had any issues.
  23. I am a bad, bad person. The loss of what was lost inside the Notre Dame is going to be staggering, and my brain is singing from the Hunchback of Notre Dame. "Paris, the city of lovers, is glowing this evening. True, that's because it's on fire, but still there's l'amour."
