Which is Better Oreck or Dyson?

  *Please like my book Minnesota Nice on Facebook! Or just click on the Like Button over there on the right sidebar -->   Some of you may remember that I have a little Dyson Envy of Margaret and her two Dysons. I believe she got one as a door prize years ago at Blogher and didn't bother to give it away. Not that I

Expectation is the Root of all Heartache

The great William Shakespeare said those very words a long time ago and today they ring oh so true. It all started out well enough. Last December, I don't remember where, I mentioned that I really wanted a Chia Pet. I had never had one and while they are easy enough to get they seemed rather extravagant and silly for me to buy for myself.

I Hate My Kitchen

I have the worlds smallest kitchen. I don't know the dimensions but it's so small I can't fit a kitchen table in it. I used to have a huge kitchen with a magnificent island right in the middle of it. I had beautiful bar furniture tucked underneath the island so no one had to trip over the stools because they stuck out. I want my

Got Junk?

I do. Every drawer in my house is a junk drawer. Okay, maybe not all of them, the dressers are pretty well organized with socks and underwear in one drawer, shirts in another and pants in still another, but all of the drawers in the communal areas of the house are junk drawers. It was my goal over the holiday break to go through these

Little of This and a Little of That

I got a bunch of stuff today but not one item is enough to make a full post. I think this might qualify as Random Thoughts Tuesday. I finally have a delivery system for my eBook. I'm using E-Junkie. So far so good. It's cheap and really easy to use. And no one has to wait, while I finish up in the bathroom, to get

Garage Sale

I need to have a garage sale. I desperately need to have a garage sale. Somewhere along the line I was designated the keeper of things in our family. Probably because I am the only one who is not a pack rat and I have the room. I don't anymore. Sure I have hung onto my roller skates and my vinyl records even though I

I Create My Own Stress

Duh, I know. If you have been reading my blog for a while you have already figured this little factoid out but I wasn't convinced until today. Yesterday my daughter and her friend went outside with the idea that they would start the garden. I even bought my daughter some seeds at the hardware store when I picked up a filter for my furnace. I

I’m Turning Into a Bad Neighbor

Or I might be becoming a redneck. I'm not sure. I have (I hope) fixed everything that has gone wrong in my house in the last month. I have replaced the washing machine, dryer and dishwasher. Okay, I didn't replace them, I hired or begged big strong men to do it, but I made the calls. The problem I have now is that all my

The Electrician Arrives Tomorrow

So I didn't get to my new SEO Monday post. I'll try again tomorrow. No, today I had to go to the laundromat again, and hopefully for the last time since tomorrow.... The Electrician Is Coming! He's coming to install the four pronged plug that I need for my dryer that has been sitting in my garage for the last year and a half. Not

The Laundromat

Due to my dryer crapping out on me the other day I had to go to the laundromat. I have blogging material for the next month just on this one trip. I went to the only laundromat that I knew of, which is located in the 'hood. I remember when there was one in each neighborhood but I guess they have gone the way of
