As a nurse who experiences all sorts of insanely foul and wretched, horrendous, putrid, atrocious, nauseating, offensive and raunchy smells that cause me to temporarily black out, I like to come back to a home full of tantalizing, calming, and enjoyable scents to rejuvenate my traumatized and deadened senses. Hubby speaks well of my few household choices as well.  

L'Occitane Verbena liquid hand soap with Shea Butter.

Bath & Body Works Black Currant Vanilla pillow spray, and scented candle.

Febreeze NOTICEables Meadows & Rain scent.

Lisn relaxing body wash and body mist with lavender, orange, grapefruit, rosemary, chamomile, and ivy.

These are the most satisfying, pleasurable, nostril-stimulating aromas I have thus far discovered, and I share them with you so that you too, may find an escape from the regretful odors in your life.

Say hello to my new, all-in-one, Brother MFC-J615w multifunctional fax/copier/scanner/printer with wireless capability, widescreen color LCD display, and printing speed of 35ppm. Its primary purpose? 

This multifunctional printer serves but one purpose
To indulge in my new hobby- COUPONS. I have not realized my full cost-cutting potential until now. With the help of certain knowledgeable, coupon-savvy bloggers and websites, I am on the road to becoming a good, productive, diligent, money-saving wifey. And I'm quite proud of myself. I will no longer solely rely on Publix Buy One Get One Free, or Kroger 10 for $10 deals. I will be the Coupon-Queen-of-the-Universe and dispense out those suckers until my final receipt says Total Cost: Free. I will no longer buy anything at full retail price. All things, from dentist appointments to toilet paper from yogurt to eating out at restaurants, will be accompanied by a shameless coupon yielded from my Brother MFC-J615w all-in-one printer (which I saved $50 on in instant savings).

My source of inspiration?

I've developed a most unusual desire to buy a pair of fuzzy fleece sleepwear- preferably one that is an imitation of some sort of animal- like a panda bear, with a matching hood.

There are several advantages to wearing such an outfit while lounging at home:

1) Sufficient warmth from black and white fleece and hoodie.
2) Extra baggy, unrestrained comfort and flexibility for cooking, cleaning, and cuddling maneuvers.
3) Adequate coverage with panda's stubby tail.
4) Significant decrease in hubby's length of anger.
5) Sudden increase in energy and voice pitch.
6) More hugs from hubby.
7) Intimidate strangers at the door with a simple downward flip of the hood.
8) Frighten away thieves with Kung-Fu Panda moves and growling noises.
9) Frolic with other neighborhood pets and outdoor animals.
10) Gain the ability to hibernate after eating large amounts of food.

(Pandas do not hibernate, but a wifey-in-a-panda-pajama-costume can).
