There is something beautiful about all scars of whatever nature. A scar means the hurt is over, the wound is closed and healed, done with. - Harry Crews

Home-Made Baby Wipes

At the Panda Residence, we are constantly trying to cut our daily costs through the guise of trying to go green. Case in point: baby wipes. We go through at least 10 a day, usually closer to 15, depending on how many poops we're blessed with. If you figure that one package of about 70 costs about $3, I'm spending $3-6 dollars per week on wipes. That's about $20 per month, evened out. Extrapolate out... $240 per year. Zoinks! For less than the cost of a large box of wipes (about $15), we've made some home-made wipes and wipes sauce to use at home (we'll probably stick with disposables while we're out and about... I hate traveling with Biohazards on deck).

Life happens too fast for you ever to think about it. If you could just persuade people of this, but they insist on amassing information. - Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.

I ♥ Seasons: Late Winter, 2011

In Cleveland, Ohio, winter is no stranger. Cuyahoga County, and many others surrounding, have two seasons: Winter and Construction. I sometimes prefer to designate the seasons as Uggs and Open-Toe (occasionally interchangeable with "Flip-Flops" or "Birkenstocks").

Last week, most of NorthEast Ohio was blessed with a respite from the frigid temperatures and tortuous conditions.. okay, it's not *that* bad here, but we're up there! We saw temperatures teasing the 60's! Lows of 45 in February! Highs of 59! It was unfortunately short-lived, and no matter how many times winter pulls this cruel trickery, year after year, we still collectively hope that winter is over when our February break arrives (the groundhog *did* say that Spring is coming soon... in six weeks... or was it six more weeks of winter?). No such luck.
