I am thinking of getting a laundry hamper very soon. I know that this will help us to get organized since I used only a laundry bag for our dirty clothes. I am glad that I found this online. Maybe later today I'll place my order. Hopefully I made the right decision before placing the order because I would hate to have to return the item once I receive it.

Kate and I are going to spend our vacation at my friend Angie's house in Connecticut. We're thinking of staying one week there. They might even be able to drive us back home too. In fact, they will pick us up here later this afternoon. We're both excited. Anyway, guys, I'll tell you more stories as soon when we get there. Happy Weekend and enjoy the Memorial Day ahead.

I can tell that I'm a little braver than my friends because I suffered through an agonizing ear piercing that I did myself. Yes, that's right. I did it myself. I have a pair of stud earrings and I used them to pierce my own ears. I'm telling you I was quite nervous when I pushed that pin into my earlobes, but that didn't stop me. I felt the pain . . . and then I recovered right away. I was so happy after all. I'll never regret what I did, even though hubby tried to prevent me before I started. He suggested that it might be better to go into the mall and let a professional do it. Actually, it's free piercing there when you buy their earrings. But I had the courage to do it myself. So, now I have two piercings in each of my ears. Anyway, if you are looking for stainless steel backsplash just click the link here.

Yesterday morning I got invited by my friend to eat in the Filipino restaurant. But in order to get there I had to ride the light rail train. Unfortunately, the Hudson light rail schedule was changed that morning without my knowledge. So, I kept waiting till I got tired. Then, the 22nd Street train came. I was so upset because I knew it wasn't the right train. I started asking myself, Why is there no train for West Side? Then a lady came up to me and said, "You have to get on this train and transfer to another train at the next station because they changed their routine today." I really thanked that lady because saved me another hour of waiting there. Finally, I got on.

The only way to really perceive reality is to understand that it is made in your mind. The film Blow-Up by Michelangelo Antonioni has this as its central theme. The film story revolves around a photographer who discovers a murder when he blows up some photos he took in the park. The murder can only be seen on the film. Then there is a corpse which is seen when he blows the pictures up even more. But when he goes to the park and sees the corpse he does nothing about it. Later it is gone. Then he sees mimes in the park. Then he walks off and disappears. The mystery ends with no solution. It is provocative. It does not mention fat burners.

The cruise ship passed our window again today. It was lined with vacationers on all the decks. Surprisingly there were only a few people on the front deck. Perhaps it had been restricted to personnel from the cruise line. Most people were on the upper deck. They were looking at the sights of New York as the ship sailed down the Hudson. They looked excited and happy to be starting their vacation. Perhaps some would wind up in Vegas hotels.

My daughter Kate loves to eat mashed potatoes every time she has dinner. She's eating it like there's no tomorrow. Her dessert is yogurt with vanilla in it. When she gets full she'll push the spoon. So I always use a bib for her to minimize the mess. I also use a shot glass for her drinks. She is so good at holding onto it and she tilts it to her mouth. Enough about her. Hey guys, have you ever heard about mesothelioma? If not, you better click this link, so that you can get some info about this.

Last week was the first time of the year that we put on our air conditioner. It was so hot and humid. The temperature was up to 90 degrees. We got tired of walking from the Fatburger Restaurant all the way home. We decided to walk because we felt that it was so nice outside. Plus, a little bit exercise is good for us. It took us 30 minutes to get home, and that included a pit stop to have a milk shake. Kate got red skin under the sun. I know it's good for her to get her vitamin D. Anyway, I just came across this discount door hardware while I was searching. If you're interested, check this out.

Hubby and I are planning to have a spring vacation around his spring break this year. I think we all deserve to have vacations even if just for a couple of days. Plus, some hotels out there are offering free hotel rooms, which is very helpful. Well, I want to save money too especially since we are facing economic crises today. The Bush administration might have had a hand in making things the way they are, but maybe they'll get better next year.
