Notice the toilet seat is frigid. 5:05 am…Check thermostat. 67 degrees downstairs, 64 degrees upstairs. As both are set at 69 […]

Goodwill is killing it this week!  If you’re looking for shoes, get over to the Brewer store on Wilson Street!  Today (Friday 2/12) only, all shoes are just one dollar!  Kids and adults!  Boots!  Sandals!  Sneakers!  I nearly fell over.  With two teenage girls, we go TRHOUGH some shoes here and with mud season coming, […]
