Hello! I'm still here.

We're in the process of moving. It has been 12-14 hour days cleaning the new place after work and packing up the old place, buying new light fixtures, doors, appliances, fences, etc. Iyi yi yi...can you say, cha ching? Anyway, I wanted you all to know I miss you and I am here just no time for anything fun right now. We have a very hectic schedule coming up so it is good that we have 5 weeks before our lease is up. But, and that's a big but, we are vacationing in June and that means we only have like 3 weeks. My dogs are barkin' every night. Heard the oddest thing the other day from a little old lady at work. She said a nurse once told her after a hard day on your feet before bed put a bar of soap in between your sheet and mattress pad at the foot of your bed so your feet can touch them and they will feel better. So my feet were throbbing the other night after a 14 hour day between work and the new place, so I tried it and darn if it didn't work. It was the craziest thing I ever heard. Very odd. Can't imagine why it works but my feet stopped throbbing within a minute or two. Try it. Supposed to be good for leg cramps. She said her dog tries to lay on it too because it has arthritis but she has to push it off. So I suggested she add another bar of soap under the sheets. lol So silly. 
Okay, we are just in after 14 hours and I am tired but I wanted to say Hi and let you know what was up. I have to get up at 5:30 a so off to bed I go. Sweet dreams.


  1. Good luck with the move. Last week I had 14 hour days with school and home and that's just trying to keep up with everything. Ugh! I don't like those kinda days. I have a tendency to rub my feet together to go to sleep at nite. Never heard of soap therapy. Interesting! Best wishes, Tammy

  2. Wow, you must be exhausted with all that's going on. I bet you can't wait for that vacation in June. I hope you'll get lots of rest and relaxation.
    What an interesting idea with the soap. Curious as to why that works.

  3. Cool Tammy, what area are you moving to? Any chance Mt. P?
    That is so funny about the soap but you know something. I read on a blog last fall that if you put Vicks on the bottom of your feet and cover them with socks all night, it will clear up a congested chest and darned if it doesn't work! Happy moving, Nan

  4. Your photograph is featured on my blog today. Can't wait to see it in person. Good luck and many good wishes with your move.

  5. That soap trick is the most intriguing thing I've heard in a long time! Will have to try it soon!

  6. I'm just popping in to say hi. I hope your move went well, and I KNOW once you get done with the yuck stuff of settling in, you'll have a blast feathering your new nest!

  7. Hi Tammy,
    I am sending you a imaginary picnic basket to remind you to put up your feet and take a breather! It is filled with fresh strawberries, lemon curd loaf, grapes, cheese and crackers, and my special cold chicken salad. I have added two beauiful stem glasses, one for you and a friend and a bottle of your favorite wine! Oh, before you close the lid, don't forget the hugs and fairy dust for renewed energy!


  8. The bar of soap was an interesting remedy. I would be willing to try that! My mother swears by pickle juice. When I complain of foot cramps she says to take a swig from the pickle jar. THAT I am not willing to do.


Thank you for stopping in and saying hello. You have made my day! Enjoy yours!
