I think I'm going to make this posting a weekly regular. Things I learned this week, or T.I.L.T.W., will consist of tidbits I pick up that will range from the poignant to the profound (slight sarcasm here). So here goes:

1. I learned that you can live without shampoo. My children have been for at least ten days. Yesterday I asked Kiley, "What have you been washing your hair with?" because I was growing suspicious of her slightly stringy hair. Kiley, 10, hesitantly answered, "With water?"

2. I learned that Chapstick, when tightly closed, gives laundry a lovely scent.

3. I learned that soy milk sours when you pour ginger ale into it.

4. I learned that watermelon does not turn into wine when left in the fridge for nine months.

5. I learned that you don't have to eat a Chucky Cheese to have a good time. In fact maybe you have more fun with just tokens.

6.. I learned that the vacuum cleaner was not intended to suck up styrofoam peanuts, and especially not 100 of them!

  1. Umm...are we twins?

    1. I noticed that my laundry had an especially pleasant, familiar odor as I took it out of the dryer. I hadn't changed my detergent, so this was perplexing.

    It was Dr. Pepper Chapstick.

    2. The pizza at Chuck E Cheese is a HEALTH Hazzard. Instant stomach cramps. Just tokens are fine!

    3. Look here for information on my family and styrofoam peanuts:
