Another puppy in the snow video! Woof woof.

Another day, another snowstorm, another puppy in the snow video.

I do believe this is what you skiers call freshies! First tracks in the powder. I thought I was going to lose him for sure.

Jojo the goldendoodle.

Insults hurled at you by those you love, or kids.

Insults hurled at you by those you love, or kids.

This is so funny! The comments on Youtube are even funnier. People be all “How could you let your kid talk to you like that?” Um it was edited that way. Obviously she doesn’t let her 4 year old barrage her with insults. Momhead. Brilliant.

Very funny stuff.

The other day my six year old said to me, in the middle of dinner “Mama, your belly looks like it has a baby in it.” Thank you darling. “No I mean it!” As if I thought you didn’t.

So much for home being your safe zone right?

Happy Everything 2014

xmas20141

I have been saying NO to my kids for so long about getting a video game that they have stopped asking. So I figured it was a good time to get it for them. They would never see it coming!

You know how much I love surprising them, it’s my favorite thing!

Wait till you see. They really never saw. it. coming. They still weren’t sure after they reacted and were looking right at it. SO funny!

Then they danced :-)

Happy Everything to you and yours!

We wish you all kinds of great surprises and awesome dance breaks all year long.
Happy 2015!

Stinky stuff? DIY Vodka Deodorizer

Last winter I packed up all of our hats and mittens put them in plastic bags and put them in the cellar.

Mistake number one, I put them in the cellar.
Mistake number two, the bags did not have a tight seal.

Unfortunate circumstance number one, we have a fieldstone basement.
Unfortunate circumstance number two, we got some pretty serious rain over the summer.

This brings me to October and the very weird New England weather. It was hot then cold then hot then cold, you get it. So off I went to the basement to get the hats and mittens.

And here’s the problem. The mistakes combined with the circumstances made them as stinky as all get out. Basement mildew moldy STANK.

I washed them and washed them and washed them. Hypoallergenic detergent, full on perfume detergent, special cloth diaper detergent, oxyclean, white vinegar. Everything.

So I took the internet, as you do. I find a couple of posts about vodka. Really? Vodka? Apparently the vodka kills the bacteria, but is basically odorless. Sure, why not.

Let’s do this!

So there you have it!

1 1/2 cup water
1 cup vodka

Saturate the stinky item
Let it dry
Sniff
Wash as usual

I read it’s also really great for dry clean only clothes or stinky armpits on an otherwise clean shirt. Meaning if your clothes are actually dirty the vodka won’t help. Unless you drink it then they won’t look so dirty after a while.
