Several weeks ago in preparation for this post, I asked Thing One (for new readers Thing One is my oldest son who goes to school at Virginia Tech) and Thing Two (sixteen year-old head-banger son at home) to email me their pictures of "Who is ...?" because they have some really good pic's taken of him with their phone-cameras. They both dutifully complied. And now I can't find them even though whenever I clean out my Email inbox (which is only every 2 months or so, but which I did 2 days ago), I always (very clever) leave all old Emails in the deleted folder in case I need to retrieve one later. So all deleted items sit there for 2 months until the next big clean-out. Fool proof!
Apparently not because the pictures from both boys are nowhere to be found. So am now waiting for both Things to send them again .....heh, heh. Can't nag about it too much either. One Thing is in class in Blacksburg right now and the other Thing is in class in Chesapeake right now (both claimed to be studying last night) ....really?? (eye's squinting in disbelief)
Sigh. Can't stand self-incompetence or I'm-busy-studying deception!
In the meantime, Alisa asked me if I have any bathroom cleaning tips since I announced yesterday I was zipping off to scrub toilets & things. I thought, Me? Cleaning tip?? No ..... but then I thought, Yes!!! I DO have a cleaning tip!
This may not be terribly original, but if you don't happen to use Mr. Clean's Magic Eraser® already, you're seriously missing out on the best thing to remove soap scum in history. NOTHING removes soap scum except this baby. And you must buy the "Extra Power" with the ridges:
Don't mess around with any other Magic Eraser® rendition. This one works the best and lasts the longest. Umm nice. No wonder I like
Mr. Clean it so much!
Oh I must add there is a serious amount of elbow-grease involved here, but I'm usually so excited so see so much soap scum going down the drain and telling myself that slim, muscular arms will be envy of all that I don't mind. OMG! Just realized I have First Ever Cooking Tip and First Ever Cleaning Tip posted in the same week. Eech! Am regressing to Domestic Goddess ....not part of the "finding my bliss" plan!!
(plan involves finding my bliss in area that pays so profusely that I, in-turn, pay maid to be domestic goddess for me)
PS--"Who is ...?" will post as soon as Things (eye-rollingly) get around to sending me their pictures again.
