Halloween 2009

96 ropes of Laffy Taffy from Sam’s Club minus 76 regular (one serving) trick-or-treaters minus 4 (double serving) trick-or-treaters minus Lloyd and Lauren each eating one equals 10 left over.

Fail

Saturday was spent baking bread and doing tons of laundry. It was time to refill the laundry soap in my little jar, and thought, “It’s about time to find a better container for this stuff”. (I buy detergent by the ton, if you’ll remember.) Well, it seemed like a great time to re-use a cereal […]
