Wisdom Teeth

Tag: GeneralEmily @ 9:56 pm

Ok, so Friday I (Emily) get my wisdom teeth removed *grumbles* Anyone have any suggestions to prevent dry sockets and speed healing??

Luckily I only have 3 (don’t have an upper right one) so that should make it an itty bit better I suppose. *sighs*

At least I get to take a couple days off work and eat ice cream and jello.

Brian & Ashley’s Engagement Party

Tag: Family,Friends,GeneralEmily @ 9:58 pm

We had a fun-filled weekend! Brian and Emily’s sister Cate came Wednesday from New York for the week. Saturday morning, all of Ashley’s bridesmaids went to Reading, Ohio to look for bridesmaids’ dresses. We narrowed it down to two or three dresses that Ashley and we really liked. Saturday night was Brian and Ashley’s engagement party. It was held in Diana’s backyard. Lots of family, friends, and the bridal party came; the weather was great, we had a huge cookout, and had three sets of cornhole going at once. It was a great party! I uploaded a lot of pictures; hopefully Ashley and Brian will decide on a website name soon so we can get theirs up and running *wink wink nudge nudge*. Click on the picture below to see more pictures from Saturday.

Yesterday, I got talking with Danielle, a friend at work, about recycling. I recycled growing up at my dad’s house, but haven’t done it in KY in years. I checked into it with our garbage company, Rumpke, and it’s actually really easy to sign up, and it’s $3.50/month to have them pick it up. I was amazed at all the things you can recycle now…I only remember doing cans and bottles growing up. They take so much more; practicly everything you throw away!

They have a really extensive list online that includes the ordinary platics, glass and aluminum cans, but they also take paperboard (like cereal boxes, mac&cheese boxes, rice boxes and all those little cardboard type boxes that food and other stuff come in), shredded paper (junk mail, office paper, etc), magazines (we have lots of those), newspapers and cardboard. Wow.
Even though we aren’t getting our bin delivered for about 2 weeks, we’ve already started putting stuff aside. It’s amazing, after cooking dinner last night every container for food we used, we recycled. We didn’t throw anything away last night! That blows my mind.

Anyway, if you live in the area, check out Rumpke’s website and their list of approved items for recycling and get yourself a bin! For $3.50/month you can’t beat it.

Congrats Brian & Ashley!

My brother Brian and his fiance Ashley closed on their new home yesterday! We went out for a nice dinner with the family and then went over to the house. It’s a GREAT old house, needs a lot of work but that’s what they like to do. We’re so happy that they are back in town! They were in Florida and most recently in Dayton, OH. Paul is working to get them a website up and going so we can see progress on the house and upcoming wedding!!

This is based on U.S. info, so use all lobes of your brain. This can be more difficult than it looks – it just shows how little most of us really see!

There are 25 questions about things we see every day or have known about all our lives. How many can you get right?  These little simple questions are harder than you think– it just shows you how little we pay attention to the commonplace things of life.
Put your thinking caps on. No cheating! No looking around! No getting out of your chair! No using anything on or in your desk or computer!

Can you beat 15?? It is nearly impossible for any normal person to get higher than a 15 (The average is 7). Write down your answers and check answers (on the bottom) AFTER completing all t he questions.

Where’s George? ®

Where’s George? ®

I’ve recently started doing this with all the bills I come across. You create an account on their site and then enter in the bill’s denomination, printed year, serial number, and if you like, add some notes about where you got the bill and its condition. I think its fun to see where a bill travels. If you google for “wheresgeorge stamps” people even make rubber stamps to stamp the WheresGeorge.com website on the bills you track. I’m waiting for mine to be delivered still. For an idea of how it works, check out their Top 10 bills
