Cleaning Tip--Stuck On Food

Stuck-On Food in Pots, Pans, and Crockpots: Fill the pan with water and place a fabric softener sheet in the water. Allow the pan to soak overnight. The food will wipe right out!

Well, kick me in the butt and call me an optimist.  LOL  I got off the computer last night after making that quick little entry and guess what?  I had a dizzy spell.  I've been up for awhile this morning and so far I've been lucky and not had any.  We'll see what the day brings for me.  I can't even begin to tell ya'll how frustrating this is for me.

I am trying to keep myself distracted with every thing I need to do for the holiday season.  I really enjoy getting things set up and decorated early.  I used to wait until some time in December, but that seemed like so much work to enjoy it for so little time.  So now I try to have everything done by Thanksgiving so we can enjoy everything for a whole month. 

I think it helps get me out of that "Fall Funk" that I seem to get trapped in every year too.  The changing of the seasons really seems to throw me for a loop.  I try to fight it off every year, but making myself get into the holiday spirit seems to help me the most.  Of course, it's a lot easier with Rylie around too.  It is hard not to get excited this year with her around.

She is at the age where she is starting to understand it all a lot more, and that is fun.  Every time a commercial comes on with a Santa character she starts hollering "Santa!  It's Santa!"  She really likes the one with Chad and the dorks who sell cell phones. 

Every Sunday she goes through the newspaper looking for flyers with toys in them.  Then she carries them around all week looking at all the toys and asking the same question over and over.  "Will you buy me?"  She carries that Sunday flyer around until it is falling apart.  Half the time she doesn't even know what it is she is asking us to buy for her, she just knows she wants it...ALL!  LOL

Then the fear hits...as I sit here and think about Rylie and all the Christmas' to come.  What the heck is going on with my body?  This not knowing is driving me bonkers!  Will I be here to comfort her when she finds out there is no Santa?  Will I be around when my babies start having babies of their own?  26 hours until my next doctor appointment.  I hate this...not knowing.  

Then my mind thinks "It could be nothing.  It might just go away."  Don't let yourself get all worried about it.  Don't let it run your every waking thought.  I certainly can't live like that.  I won't live like that. 

Well, I still have a lot to do to get ready for Turkey day, so I better get on the ball.  I have floors to sweep and mop, pies to make, appetizers to make, rooms to clean and so much more. 

Have a great day & hugs to all my friends!
