So, not sure if this will make you feel better, but going to share. I have chronic migraines, and one hit me at a work event. I was in conversation with a networking contact, when it hit me, instantly, that I needed to vomit right the hell then. I put my hand over my mouth and ran to the elevator, because the Read more

It’s so hard to give her any specific advice since she didn’t share any location information. Read more

I’m brand loyal to Aveda Rosemary Mint hand and body wash, because it’s the one product that doesn’t flare up my eczema and is less gross than Dove bar soap. Read more

I managed to load the dishwasher so far, but I need to seriously clean up. My other big goal is to sort/organize my makeup. I went a little overboard on new makeup, and need to get it together so I can actually use it. That will be a lot of fun, though. Read more

Hmmm. That’s a bummer. Is it a case of the parents smoking in the home, or just near the kids? Trying to think of the best mitigation.

I’m having a lazy Friday night and contemplating a long bath. I set up an Alexa in my bathroom so I can listen to podcasts in the tub/shower, and I spent much more money than I should admit on fancy bath products pre-Christmas.

So this is probably not something I would do to valuable clothes/other people’s clothes/historic costumes, but I have a bunch of dry clean only tops that reeked, and the only thing that I could find to kill it was hand sanitizer discreetly rubbed in to the armpits.

Chiming in as an asthmatic person with a secondhand smoke allergy: could you set the appointments in the smoker’s homes after those for people who don’t smoke? That way, the health of the non-smokers is protected. Read more

It took me years to become okay with not holding onto everything for just this situation. I would stockpile/not throw out worn shoes, stained/torn clothing, and other stuff. I would also stockpile groceries on sale that we didn’t really like/need.

I have been trying for years to get my MIL to watch an ep of Hoarders. Her house isn’t filthy, but it’s disturbingly cluttered to the point where visits are uncomfortable. I wonder if KonMari might be more her speed.

I read both of her books. I got a lot more out of Spark Joy than I did The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up, but I think they’re both really useful if you need to change how you see stuff. Read more

This is not really a resolution per se, since it’s not traditional self-improvement, but I decided that I’m going to spend more time doing things that I enjoy, and that I can buy myself nice things when I want them.

I live in a house that is 115 years old. We have an electric shock trap, and it works very well, and kills them quickly and humanely. The only super gross downside is that occasionally a stupid centipede will run in there and they make a friggen mess.

How about a GrubHub giftcard? That way, your mom can get some food delivered while you can’t be there.

2. I only buy holiday scents that I actually like, and keep using them until they’re gone. I will buy these on clearance after a holiday for my own use, though, because I am cheap. Read more

We had Christmas dinner with Booth’s family, and they made him take home a giant bag of ham. I don’t eat ham, so that’s all on him to deal with. I did polish off the bag of almond biscotti my coworker gave me on Friday, and a bunch of mini Butterfingers from my MIL.

It was my absolute favorite as a kid, so I’m totally geeked that she’s into it. My sister told Niece how it was my favorite and she was so pumped.
