I got a "wild hair" and pruned our ornamental prune tree this morning! I meant to plant tulips but pruning that tree just seemed like more fun. :P I mainly pruned the part facing our house. It was a mess of tiny branches sticking every which way. Now i have a branch mess on the ground! :roll: I'll want gloves to pick those up but right now i have a splinter - one of those teeny-tiny ones you can't see but hurts when it's touched - and don't want to put gloves on.

Besides, i may be going to a brunch this morning and need to jump in the shower. :mrgreen:

Yay! I got the splinter out! Whew!

Mom didn't want to go to the Christmas brunch after all. Maybe we'll go to town later. I know she wants to get out of the house. There's some shopping to do like TOILET PAPER!

Scrape the splinter with a credit card or driver's license.. Work away from the way it went in, to prevent pushing it in further. It should come out.

(this also works for removing stingers)

I SO admire *my* late Mother for toilet paper hoarding when she found good sales. We NEVER had to go to the store just for that. In fact, after she passed away, I gave away a BUNCH - and STILL had enuf for our house for more than a YEAR! :mrgreen:

LOL I've been known as a toilet paper hoarder, as well!!! I may even still have some up in mom's cupboard but i don't go in there any more. sigh My tp space has diminished in the last few years.

Space? What's that?!

Is there no room to walk thru your livingroom? If you can walk thru, you HAVE space :D

You just need to THINK like a hoarder! ;)

I have become a tissue hoarder. It stems from when we were newlyweds, I could only afford to get one roll a week of Scott's tissue. Thanking the Lord dh got paid weekly.

Mine may stem from the time we couldn't afford it and used wash rags. Even for monthly stuff. :shock: NOT a good time. We lived thru it but i didn't want to go thru it again if we didn't HAVE to.
