Mrs. Myers – Laundry Days

About mid October I was in Walmart, on a grocery and realised we were low on laundry detergent. I gathered all the needed groceries, and headed over to the laundry department. I was not thrilled with what I found, when I arrived at the correct isle; nearly empty shelves. There were a few off brands, most which were too highly priced, for such small bottles.
  After much adue, I wandered over to this cute little container, you can never judge one by its cover, or, in this case, by its container.
  I am never one to particularly love “man made” products, especially detergants and such, things that contain chemicals, and especially things that are harmful to animals.
  There is bound to be a special place in hell, just for people who are cruel to animals; a bunny with a pitchfork, poking and proding those cruel people, forcing them to jump off the steepest ledge, falling deep into the hottest part of the pits of hell…I got a bit off topic there, didn’t I… Moving on, … One of the things on the shelves, in the laundry department, was this bottle, a unique little bottle, {see below} I picked it up, opened it, and smelled it, waited for a min, as I studied the label, then smelled again.
  Normally, one would careless what it smelled like, but unless you or your loved ones have have had numerous allergic reactions to softeners, or detergents, you probally wouldn’t understand.
  My husband is highly allergic to certain things. One in particular, the scents of laundry detergents. Since I had little to choose from, on the isle, and this was the only one that I thought my hubby might be ble to withstand, I put it in the buggy, and headed off to the checkout. On the way home, from the store, I began to wonder if I really did make the right decision, or should I just have waited until the the shelves were restored…..? After I got home, I unloaded the car of all of the groceries, and put it all away, I eagerly got a pile of my clothes together, and grabbed this yummy smelling detergent, an headed off to the washer.

After putting the clothes in the washer, I examined the bottle more carefully, yes, I just had to smell it again! It smelled soooooooooooo good!!! As you can see, the label says “Lavender”, but in all true honesty, it smells like Baked Apple Pie to me! So good, i can almost taste it. I have loved using it, as you can tell, It is about half empty, I highly recommend this product!  It makes all of our linens smell absolutely amazing, oh, and they really spell fantastic when they’ve been washed in this, folded, packed away in storage, and then you go open the box, and you are engulfed in this yummy aroma!

Wal-Mart vs. The Morons

Yes, Yes, I know this is horribly far, far away from blogging territory, but I want to post this, anyways. If you like it, PLEASE show it by re-blogging this!! Thanks!  

 

 

 

PLEASE, READ THIS TO THE END. IT IS VERY INTERESTING!!!

Wal-Mart vs. The Morons

1. Americans spend $36,000,000 at Wal-Mart Every hour of every day.

2. This works out to $20,928 profit every minute!

3. Wal-Mart will sell more from January 1 to St. Patrick’s Day (March 17th) than Target sells all year.

4. Wal-Mart is bigger than Home Depot + Kroger + Target +Sears + Costco + K-Mart combined.

5. Wal-Mart employs 1.6 million people, is the world’s largest private employer, and most speak English.

6. Wal-Mart is the largest company in the history of the world.

7. Wal-Mart now sells more food than Kroger and Safeway combined, and keep in mind they did this in only fifteen years.

8. During this same period, 31 big supermarket chains sought bankruptcy.

9. Wal-Mart now sells more food than any other store in the world.

10. Wal-Mart has approx 3,900 stores in the USA of which 1,906 are Super Centers; this is 1,000 more than it had five years ago.

11. This year 7.2 billion different purchasing experiences will occur at Wal-Mart stores. (Earth’s population is approximately 6.5 Billion.)

12. 90% of all Americans live within fifteen miles of a Wal-Mart.
You may think that I am complaining, but I am really laying the ground work for suggesting that MAYBE we should hire the guys who run Wal-Mart to fix the economy.

This should be read and understood by all Americans… Democrats, Republicans, EVERYONE!!

To President Obama and all 535 voting members of the Legislature

It is now official that the majority of you are corrupt morons:

a.. The U.S.Postal Service was established in 1775.  You have had 234 years to get it right and it is broke.

b.. Social Security was established in 1935.  You have had 74 years to get it right and it is broke.

c.. Fannie Mae was established in 1938.You have had 71 years to get it right and it is broke.

d.. War on Poverty started in 1964.  You have had 45 years to get it right; $1 trillion of our money is confiscated each year and transferred to “the poor” and they only want more.

e.. Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965.  You have had 44 years to get it right and they are broke.

f.. Freddie Mac was established in 1970.You have had 39 years to get it right and it is broke.

g.. The Department of Energy was created in 1977 to lessen our dependence on foreign oil.It has ballooned to 16,000 employees with a budget of $24 billion a year and we import more oil than ever before.  You had 32 years to get it right and it is an abysmal failure.
You have FAILED in every “government service” you have shoved down our throats while overspending our tax dollars.
AND YOU WANT AMERICANS TO BELIEVE YOU CAN BE TRUSTED WITH A GOVERNMENT-RUN HEALTH CARE SYSTEM?? 
Folks, keep this circulating.It is very well stated.  Maybe it will end up in the e-mails of some of our “duly elected’ (they never read anything) and their staff will clue them in on how Americans feel.

AND

I know what’s wrong.  We have lost our minds to “Political Correctness” !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Someone please tell me what the HELL’s wrong with all the people that run this country!!!!!!
We’re “broke” & can’t help our own Seniors, Veterans, Orphans, Homeless etc.,???????????
In the last months we have provided aid to Haiti , Chile, and Turkey..And now Pakistan ……..previous home of bin Laden. Literally, BILLIONS of DOLLARS!!!

Our retired seniors living on a ‘fixed income’ receive no aid nor do they get any breaks…
AMERICA: a country where we have homeless without shelter, children going to bed hungry, elderly going without ‘needed’ meds, and mentally ill without treatment -etc,etc.
Imagine if the *GOVERNMENT* gave ‘US’ the same support they give to other countries. Sad isn’t it?
99% of people won’t have the guts to forward this.

I’m one of the 1% — I Just Did

*Married Life* Part II {Becoming a SMother}

   So, now I am a married woman. I married into a life, of happiness & cute little red-headed angels! I am officially a  Smother! {Step Mom}. But before I can truly be happy with myself; I have a few daunting tasks to achieve,. This is just one on my list..

Task One:{To Being a SMother}: Get in touch with my Organizing, Multi-Tasking side! & I have gotten a decent head start! (Thanks to the School Sales @ Walmart!)

(Look for another post, for the captures of today’s goodies!)

This is just a start… I bought the 3-D Dry Erase Board @ walmart for about $4, & the NEON dry erase Markers for about $3. I found a calendar with room for notes, (Dry Erase too) for about $6, But because it can be used, & used, & used, I got it. I know that’s a LOT for a simple calendar, but as bad as we needed it, I said the heck with it.

The next thing I want to do, Is make a few custom made magnetic/dry erase boards, but that may have to wait, as I don’t have much spending $$, currently.

….

The next task is Organizing the house of all of its clutter, I’ve been slowly working on this… No pictures, yet!

Maybe Later, as I get about 1/2 of the way done.

What are some of the organizational tips & tricks you as my readers use??

Anything as far as multi tasking??

I am going to start eating like Buggs Bunny if I want to keep this up & running…

^.^

Till Next Time!
