(New Monogram & Number Pillows are ready for purchase...contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details!)
When I first started thinking about creating a blog, I came up with a list of possibilities for it's title. While I ultimately chose The Tarnished Crown...I also really liked Petticoat "Junk"tion (after the 1960's TV show since I always wanted to be one of the PJ sisters) and My Lucky Rabbit's Foot.
Now I'm thinking that after the month I've had, I really should have gone with My Lucky Rabbit's Foot.
Many of you know that about a month ago, my 16 year old son went in for a routine physical for Track. They found a lump in one of his neck lymph nodes. After a run of antibiotics and no change, they decided to do an MRI. It showed 2 additional borderline enlarged nodes and they recommended an open biopsy to take them all out. They didn't even want to do a needle biopsy because that procedure would not allow them to see if it were cancer or not. Needless to say, I had some pretty low moments of worry. My son said, "Why are you so worried, I'm not." I said, "Because part of a mom's job is to worry when their kids might be sick."
Riley had the surgery on Monday the 13th and we were given very optimistic news, that all three nods looked benign but we'd get the pathology report the following week. As if that wasn't enough, Riley had surgery on Monday and, on Thursday, we got the news that our friend's 17 year old son was in the hospital. On that same day, my middle daughter scratched her cornea with her contact and while we sat in the Acute Care we were getting updates on our friend's son. I am SO HAPPY to report that Riley's biopsy came back negative, our friend's son is home recuperating and Chelsea will never wear her contacts to bed ever again! Thank you God for those miracles! I'd also like to thank ALL of you who prayed for Riley. Our friends, family and people we don't know prayed for his health and I will forever be grateful for those prayers....Yes, indeed, I'm thinking I really should have titled my blog...My Lucky Rabbit's Foot. (Unfortunately, even if I wanted to change it, my 11 year old daughter decided to use it when she created her blog!)

Time Saving New Uses Tips...
Remove Adhesive with Mayonnaise
Adhesive remover that banishes old stickers from mirrors, glass, and bumpers. Apply a generous helping to persistent adhesives and coax off with a flexible putty knife.
Clean Your Dishwasher with Lemonade Kool-Aid
Clean lime deposits and iron stains inside the dishwasher. Pour a packet of lemonade Kool-Aid (the only flavor that works) into the detergent cup and run the dishwasher while empty.Reward: The citric acid in the mix wipes out stains, so you don't have to.
These tips were passed on to me from a friend. I haven't tried them yet, but will definitely being trying the mayo on a glass top that has some stickers that need to be removed. Do you have any time saving tips...if so pass them on!
Have a great week! Look for me at Old Town Tustin, Sunday, April 26, Irvine Valley Colleg, May 3 and Rosebowl, May 11. Feel free to contact me at any time...firstname.lastname@example.org
