The Good Ol' Days

Remember this toy?
Oh my gosh, I was looking on the web about time capsules and found this picture! I am now on a search for one. Does anybody know of the where abouts of one of these? Remember Camptown Races & Hickory Dickory Dock. I used to love love love this toy. My grandma had the best toys I reckon. Or what about this one? I remember playing with this with my cousins whom I used to babysit all the time.

I love the good ol days!

My Love Affair

Well, I think you should have a spider update. After I threw that jar out on the grass, a couple days later Rick and I were coming home from a run and I decided to check the spider out. Well, he was still inside the jar...DEAD...Poor thing. I felt so bad for him! I said to Rick, it must've been the cold weather the first night he was out here. He says, Yeah, that cold weather'll get em won't it? hah. I can't believe I just said Poor thing while talking about a ruddy spider! I must be insane!

Ok, now on to bigger and better things. My love affair. I've fallen in love with the greatest invention EVER. Mr Clean Magic Erasers. They are absy fabsy can I tell you?! I mean, you name it, they clean it. They even take tattoo's off of kids faces! Although I wouldn't recommend it b/c your child might go to school that day and end up with a majorly stinging face and going to the school nurse and telling her that her mom did this to her! hah! Well, tell me...what is a mother to do when 5 min before child is to walk out the door, child tells her that she is not allowed to have a big tattoo on her cheek? Well, I'll tell you what mother has to do. Get it off and QUICK! So, I got the tattoo off, but probably not the best possible way...apparently I didn't consult the website first. See below.

"Use of Magic Eraser on the skin may result in mild discomfort comparable to what one would receive from rubbing the skin with very fine sandpaper, but will not cause chemical burns." Next time I'll try peanut butter.

So that's my love affair. I can clean the dirtiest, greasiest of cupboards in seconds with these babies...Try em' won't be dissapointed! Mr Clean, I love you! And, you've got good muscles too!
