Proctor and Gamble Here I Come!

If you follow either of my pet blogs you know that I've been lucky enough to work Iams, a Proctor & Gamble company, for about 4 years. They've provided all of my dog and cat food and taken me on 6 great trips.

With the recent announcement that P&G has sold Iams, Eukanuba and Nutura to the Mars Corporation my future with them is unknown.

Luckily last week a P&G rep contacted me about attending the "Love the Pet, Not the Mess" conference. It's four brands, Febreeze, Bounty, Swiffer and Iams. I use all of those brands already.

Just for fun I looked at the P&G website and then around my house. Right now I have 37 different Proctor and Gamble brands in my house!
I had no idea that they made that many of the products I use.

Thursday evening at the conference we'll be enjoying a "Yappy Hour" at Washington Park in their dog park area. Friday we'll be at the Cincinnati Zoo and we're even going to be able to get up close and personal with a some cool animals while we're there.

It sounds like it's going to be a great group of bloggers and a lot of fun so I'll let you know all about it when I get back.

Shrewd Shopper or Hopeless Hoarder?

So here's an example of the difference between me and my husband. We were out shopping and I spotted these cute silicone kitchen sets.  They're the kind that can handle high heat.
Then I saw the price.
.49¢...They were only .49¢!  There were four sets left on the rack and I took great pleasure in buying all of them.
Chris did not understand why I would buy all 4. At that price I probably would have bought 10 sets!

I'm using one, I'll give a set to my son John David for his apartment, keep one in reserve and give the last one to my mom or neighbor.

Would you have bought 4 or more of these because of the extreme mark down or would you have just been 1 and done?

Just Springtime in Michigan

I was so excited to see my little daffodils pop their head up on Monday.
Then I woke up in the middle of the night with the power out. We had gotten about 2 inches of snow. Poor daffodils.
And poor me! Our power didn't come on until about 2 yesterday afternoon.

Chloe woke me up to let me know she did not appreciate the cold house.  It got down to 53 degrees in here!

I found a cool 1980's throwback to keep me warm. Please excuse my derp face!
Thank you Merino sheep for giving me this lovely snug sack to keep warm in.

Finally I have to show you the area of our power outage as diagrammed by DTE Energy.

My house is located near the tip end, lol.

A Major Life Accomplishment

For the first time in my 46 years I have finished a lip balm before I lost it.

I figure why not celebrate life's little victories!
