One thing I noticed about my closet is that I NEVER have enough shells. Friday, I ripped my only cotton ¾ shell on the way to Moishe’s on a fence. I was just glad that I wasn’t cut. I wasn’t in the mood to end up in Maimonides erev Shabbat.
A few more steps, and I happened upon a lovely store. I found Junee’s cotton ¾ shells on sale for $14. I snagged (no pun intended) three of them: black, white, and purple.
So, now I have three shells to carry me through for a while.

Now, on to the nitty gritty. During the summer, I’m prone to a lot of sweating. Dressing modestly doesn’t help the situation either. The other thing is that my normal antiperspirant/deodorant standby, Degree, fails miserably during a hot Shabbos. So I decided to get Certain Dri. What I do is put it on a few minutes after I shower on Friday afternoon; then just before Shabbos I put on one swipe of the Degree. I tried it out this Shabbos and I was pleasantly surprised that I had no sweat nor stink. Yay! I feel so much better.

You are looking at the remains of my Milano pony sheital. For the non-Trekker geeks out there, this is the wiki entry on tribbles.
What the heck happened? Well, the hubster was being a helpful guy and ran a load of towels for me. Unfortunately for me, he thought the towel that my sheital was wrapped in was supposed to be washed. So my sheital got washed and dried. I can’t even get mad at him because I just found too hilarious. So I’m in the market for a new human hair one now. Oh well…. I had it over a year and it served me well.
Yeah, this post has NOTHING to do with parenting but it’s emotional all the same. Anyone, who has read this blog knows I love listening to music. After the fast this week, I deleted all the music off my Blackberry and changed my ringtone from a song excerpt to a regular ring tone.
Someone thought that was extreme. I don’t know why. It’s not like I got rid of the songs forever because the mp3 files are on my external drive. For me, listening to music is like breathing air. I feel pain when I can’t listen to my tunes (especially Pet Shop Boys.) So I decided to fill my phone with shirum mp3s. I figured since my ears need to feel busy so I can fill them with learning for a little while.
