Like, for instance, I color coded our drinking glasses with washi tape:
Seriously. I did that.
And not only did I do it, but I stand by it as the best thing I've ever done with washi tape. Six people make a TON of dirty dishes, especially if the tendency is to drink out of more than one per day.
If the colorful tape weren't enough to encourage people to use their same drinking glasses day in and day out, I threatened them with their lives if they didn't follow my ingenious plan.
So far so good.
I also made four of these hand soap dispensers. Because I can never find the foaming ones that I like for anything less than, say, $12 and who wants to spend that when we already have tons of jars hanging around for the taking?
Plus my partner in crime has this most wonderful clippy cutty thing that made making the holes in the lids so easy.
I sort of glanced at the instructions on this web page before totally ignoring them and doing my own thing. As usual.
Last but not least, I've been looking to solve the eternal problem of the Head of Destruction destroying every spice in the entire house.
I know she's only doing her job, but cleaning up all that parsley gets old fast.
In case you're thinking, "That's it?!?" don't worry. There we still have a giant box and two baskets of spices that are not represented here.
Because I forgot to count the number of spices before ordering the jars. So these are the ones that are lucky enough to be stuck to the side of our fridge using magnets.
Meanwhile, the tile is coming along. Sort of.
I did mention I had a Twipply Skwood old style photo, right?!?! Please excuse the quality (or lack thereof) since I had to take it in the rain on a cell phone. But I've always wanted a picture of the Denny's and Subway right next to the Digestive and Liver Disease Clinic.
Convenient, no? You can get the digestive disease and cure it right in the very same plaza!
Aside from the Editor in Chief having the flu (and me not having a flu shot), that's about the news from here!
