Throwing in the Towel

Friday, May 6th, 2011

I don’t know what it was like in your house, growing up, but in the Lo Sapio household, you did not use paper towels unless it was absolutely necessary. (I can’t tell you how hard it is to avoid suggesting to my house guests that they should use the hand towel, hanging from the cabinet door). Funny, huh? Well, old habits die hard. Yes, I use a paper cup more than once. . . okay, I admit it; I use the same paper cup for several mornings in a row when I brush my teeth. Hey, it’s my germs! I’m allowed to “double dip.”

A Control Freak Christmas

Tuesday, December 28th, 2010

So many people really enjoy celebrating Christmas. I’m one of them.

Shop Me Before I Stop

Tuesday, October 12th, 2010

I love grocery shopping. No; really. I may not love having to grocery shop, but while I’m there I look at it like any other shopping trip. Except in the grocery store I can basically buy anything I want.

What is it about shopping? (more…)
