We’re going through a sea-change in how we keep and store things around our house. This due to the fact that it eventually gets to you to have clutter gum up even the simplest of everyday activities, like cutting the corner off a fresh bag milk. I mean, it shouldn’t take half an hour to find the scissors so that you can actually cut the bag right?
Well, it’s not rocket science to organize household things. But when I look at all the stuff a musician and crew have to set up and organize, it might as well be rocket science. To that end, I suppose they have the best help with items like this rack mount tray at musicians friend. It could be a lot more complicated. But thankfully, it’s not with organizational tools such as this.

I was talking to my friend today and told me that the grocery store s are celebrating Black Friday. There’s lots of good deal products that we are interested to buy like cellphones, TV’S and many more. Anyway hubby just got home from fetching my daughter and now I asked him a favor to go to home depot to buy some socket but he’s busy. Oh well I don’t need it right away so I might check out the industrial products online. I will probably get some good deal by shopping online.

You might think that the watch is going the way of old style TVs because of the advances made in mobile phone technology and because every “smart phone” can also tell time. But I would argue that there will be no such demise of the wristwatch, namely because the so-called smart phone is good at everything else but being a phone and telling time.
What do you mean, you ask. Well, open that smart phone beside you and tell me what time it is. Well? That’s what I thought… which is why I found a nixon watch does much better in the “time-telling” test vs. a smart phone anyday. And why you still can’t go wrong getting anyone a watch like this for your family and friends for Christmas.

It’s not often that we need a lab scale around the house, but I remember a few times when my husband was trying measure out something he was using for concocting one of his “amazing new” meals that he was calling for one. Well, we don’t actually have one or anything that would weigh out food like that (aside from a bathroom scale which just isn’t the same).
I think he actually did find a lab scale to use at one point. But what happened with it, I’m not sure of now.

I can just see it now – I’m listening to the professor break out of his normal lecture cadence to inform us that term papers are due at the end of the month. Term paper! How that phrase used to strike fear into the heart of this freshman. Oh, I knew this was going to part of that class in American History. But it still came as somewhat of a shock to come face to face with the actual requirement of yours truly actually sitting down and hammering out words, words, words on some once (to me) historical topic.
I didn’t make it any easier on myself by harbouring the belief that I had to do it all by myself – from hitting the library stacks to note-taking to rough outlining to first draft etc. You see, I was a bit of a hard nut on myself in this lone wolf attitude. In hindsight, though, I caused more woe on myself than I’ll probably ever totally grasp. At least now I understand that it would have been far better if I’d just asked for some help!
Little did I know – as it wasn’t even available at the time as far as I know – that there are people who would have come alongside a student like me and helped me, coached me, through the entire term paper writing process. What a revelation that would have been to me then: that it was available to order term paper assignments through a third party website.
Of course I didn’t know about it, as there wasn’t even a web when I was in school. So I kind of envy students today who can take advantage of this service that will help them put their best foot forward when asked to submit their next term paper.

Oh my gosh! it’s winter already .We have a policy in our household of leaving outdoor footwear at the door. Well, I try to keep it at least. But there are many times when I am in such a hurry that I can’t be bothered to reach down and untie my shoes if I’m just going back in the house for a moment to grab something I forgot. Of course it’s a little different story in wintertime when I’m wearing boots with slush and snow
dripping off of them as soon as I step in the door. So unless I feel I don’t mind mopping the floor later of the winter muck, I’ll usually end up removing them before running into the house.
Rules can be broken and it often depends on what season of the year it happens to be and also on the type of footwear. I’ll probably never wear a pair of riding boots in the house for example. But I’ll wear a pair of high heels any day.
