I did not have one embarrassing, frustrating, humiliating moment yesterday!  Didn't lock myself out of the car, wear my clothes inside out, leave water running, set myself on fire, take the wrong medication...Nothing!  Oh, I am a pitiful, shameful fibromite and need to do penance.  Perhaps I will make up for it today...it's still early.
I WILL say, my husband came in this morning and had this cup of coffee that looked like...well... ditch water.  He forgot to grind the whole coffee beans before running them trough the coffee maker.  YES!  Proudly, I welcomed him to my world!

Donna, you are such a treat.  It is so nice of your husband to pick up the slack for you.  They say, the longer we are married to our mates the more alike we are.  Or is that, the longer we have our pet the more we look alike?  Hmm!?!  Well, either way, have a good day.  Love & hugs, Denise

Yesterday I sprayed my shower doors down with clorox clean up A few minutes later I decided to turn the shower on for the steam to help aide in rinsing and cleaning. I walked out of the bathroom decided to go to the local general store to pick a few things up about an hour later went into the bathroom I had steam dripping off the ceiling my walls that were painted in june now have water marks down them. I really just laughed. My husband did not even say a word when I told him.

Lee Ann did it clean the shower doors??? You know the best way to clean your microwave is put a cup of water in it and let it boil and sit for awhile and you can wipe everything right off that was stuck.
When attempting to make a few goodies for the kids I found out what a cruel place the kitchen is for fibromites with arthritis in their hands. I was trying to open a can of cinnamon so opened the silverware drawer to get a butter knife to pop the lid open, got it open and now have cinnamon flavored silverware. Set the timer wrong and burned a batch of Texas pecans. Went 10 rounds with the *(&^% food processer I have. I could get a rubix cube right in the time it takes to get that thing together right. Thank goodness Ken came home just in time to stir the rice krispy treats cause my hands were hurting so bad by then.
Now I don't have to go back in the kitchen for a year. turn
luv and hugs

LeeAnn, one time I sprayed a whole bottle of Clorox Stain-Out all over my shower instead of the Clorox Clean-Up!  I had to rinse it all off and start all over again.
