Computer woes – just venting here.

I swear - I can slow a computer down faster than anyone I know. My "old" desktop was top notch when I got it - the cream of the crop, and super fast. After using it for a couple of years it got progressively slower. It came on gradually and I didn't notice it until I was using my son's desktop computer (that he bought for himself).

My daughter, who is starting 8th grade next month, needs a new backpack every school year. She somehow manages to destroy them, but I am not sure that is all her fault. Kids these days have to carry around so many heavy books, along with all of their other supplies. It takes a very strong backpack to deal with the wear and tear of daily use by … [Read more...]

Back to School: Rubbermaid 20 Piece Easy Find Lids Food Storage Set Review and Giveaway!

I was so happy when I received Rubbermaid Easy-Find lid set for review. My cabinets are a mess, full of old storage containers, and I am of course, missing the lids to most of them.
