My mother always baked the bacon, and she saved the grease for cooking. She made the best home fried potatoes, but I have a problem using it. I bake my bacon, if I have company, but if I only have a few slices, I use the microwave.
Just came back from a couple of errands. Gorgeous day out there. I needed a card for the shower so I decided to go to the Paper Store on Rt. 1 - instead of the one in Reading. As I was in that area, I went to that TJ's s well. Nothing wrong w/ any of the stores, but oh, how I hate Rt. 1. So difficult to enter. Can't believe, tt, you don't mind it. You must be a heck of a lot more aggressive driver than me. And Rt. 1 was packed. So was Walnut Street, my exit. Sat in the traffic for at least 5 minutes trying to get on to Walnut Street. Long line down Rt. 1. Don't think, I will go that route again.
Did all the sheets this morning. Ours, UKS's and TXS's. The house smells invigorating. Now I have to do all the beds. Bought a new bedspread for TXS at IKEA, when we were there last. Will do a lot for their room. Now, if they (both) could get rid of all the junk they store here, I would be so happy. UKS has a bunch of empty boxes stored in a corner. I would have gotten rid of them a long time ago, but "Oh, no - I need them for shipping!" Well, with the shipping rates these days, there will not be much shipping. TXS still have shower gifts here. None too exciting, I admit. I have told them to donate them somewhere. I will be so happy to fill my trunk and go to Salvation Army or some other place. Sorry about my complaints. The kids are great, really. But once in a while, it just gets to me. Like today, trying to neatening up ther rooms for their arrival. Just wondering how other parents deal with their childrens storage? I have stuff here from their college time. Even from my DIL's time - from long before they were married. Argh!
