Hypoallergenic Bubble BathMy son loves bubble bath but has very sensitive skin. I have found that I can use the cheap store brand baby shampoo, which is hypoallergenic, and it works great and doesn't irritate his skin. Plus you get a lot more for less because it makes so many more bubbles!

Write Down Phone Card InformationI lost a 200 minute phone card after only using 15 minutes. I was bummed. Now I write down the 800 number, the PIN number and the customer service number, so if I lose the card I can still use my minutes and they always tell you how much you have left.

 

Woobie the CatMy cat's name is "Woobie" He is 8 years old and is a Domestic Medium Hair Orange & White. We got him from my brother-in law who had a barn cat that had kittens and he needed a home. I work for a Veterinarian, so I HAD to take him home with me. For fun "Woobie" likes to chase our Welsh Corgi "Tucker" out of his bed so he can take a nap. As you can see, it works everytime!
