Things I’m loving this week
This is Us. I’m so glad this show is back on TV, even if I can rarely stay awake till 9 p.m. to watch it on Tuesdays (Sad, I know). I usually end up watching it online the next day and I love it because the twists & turns just keep coming and aren’t so outlandish that you roll your eyes. I love how the writers can weave the different decades together and dammit…I believe in councilman Randall.
Sal Val. I never used to go to the Salvation Army store unless I was looking for Halloween costumes, but….recently, I’ve been trolling thrift stores looking for work clothes for Kelly because I found it hard to find black cotton work pants and solid-color polo shirts locally at a decent price. Anyway….last Wednesday, I stopped by the Peach St. store to get her some more pants and the place was packed. Turns out you get half off all purchases on Wednesdays. I paid $9 for three pairs of work pants.
Toothpaste as a CD fix. So, I’m a Luddite who still buys actual music CDs and my Lizzo: Cuz I Love You CD, which the girls and I love, started skipping in the middle of Truth Hurts and, I mean, that’s one of the best songs on the CD, so….. I googled how to fix a scratch on the CD and they suggested putting toothpaste (non gel) onto the disc, letting it dry, then rinsing and drying the disc. I was skeptical, but figured I didn’t have much to lose. It actually worked! And, now we can rock out to this most awesome song again.
p.s. I’m just going to stop with the positive stuff this week.
