^ Aw! Sad day!

My little brother is sick, and now my mom seems to be coming down with something, too. NO. STOP! I WILL NOT GET SICK OVER THE REMAINDER OF THIS BREAK, TOO!

Also, it's looking like I'm the only able-bodied one left in the house to shovel all of this snow in our driveway.



That's what little brothers are for. He's not allowed to get sick. And I don't know how to work the snow-blower...

The shoes are adorable, but hurt my feet during the initial try-on. I've got them sitting out still and plan on trying to wear them around the house a little bit more just to make sure because they're so cute.

Count me in mrrrrrs prayer circle because if it's bed bugs that will be a nightmare. I was terrified during our move across country we'd pick them up because we had to stay in so many hotels.

I like hearing things like that. Well, not the brick-throwing. But everything coming together afterwards, yes!

I love my steam mop. Its so easy and quick it makes me mop more. It does leave my floor a kind of matte streaky looking, but it feels so clean, and I hate wax on my floor.

I saw that on FB yesterday. It's pretty awesome. BF has a SS route on Saturday nights. He hates it. Drunk frat boys stepping out in front of him all the time.

Springy you can try stretching your shoes. I just discovered the hair dryer trick with shoes that are a bit tight. Put on the thickest socks you can with the shoes and then use a hair dryer on the tight spots. Wiggle your feet if possible and bend your feet while in them. This totally fixed a spot on some flats of mine and on some boots too!!

sock lint inside uggs - contemplating how to kill uggs if possible

lint

I've put everything from the cabin in the wash and inside the bag it traveled in, which will be lit on fire later.

The SS is my least favorite place in the city. At least for driving. I know as a young person, I'm supposed to enjoy it, but I really hate that place! I get stressed out just thinking about it.

Did you see the final list of prizes? Insanity! It makes me want to go support all of those places that pitched in gifts.

Yeah! It's a great list. I'm glad that some good came out of it.

I'm sorry, Murrrcat....I didn't mean to freak you out

Supposedly looking along the seem of your mattress is the best place to look. If you have them, that's where they'll be hiding. If nothing there, you should be good!

X, these are sandals so it's not really a tightness issue but more the strap across the top of the foot kind of hits me in a weird place.

Thank you for the advice, I'll have to remember that!

Not everyone is allergic to the bites so you can have people in a bedbug infested household who do not have any itchy welts. My sister had a bedbug infestation and she was the only person in the house (out of 4) who had any bites. Bedbug bites usually are in lines or clusters of three, if you google you can see pics of what they usually look like. Like someone else mentioned, the best way to look for them is to inspect the seams of your mattress up near the head of your bed and see if you see any black spots on your mattress or dried blood. They only come out at night and can live for months without eating so it can be hard to see an actual bug (the actual bugs look like apple seeds, fyi).

If you do have them, you need to get them professionally treated and they are a nightmare to get rid of so I hope it is something else.

Yay! Actually getting a bonus for last years results. I am hoping it's with this weeks paycheck! I think I will order another pair of glasses from Coastal. And will pay for the weeks rental of the Aruba condo too! *happy dance*
