HI everyone! I will let Penny give her tip in a minute. Today is the one year anniversary of Phoebe leaving us. We miss her every day, the house just isn’t the same without her. Her little harness dress still hangs on the hook by the door like Tiny Tim’s crutch.
I have been saving this story for today. Last year, when I kept bringing Phoebe to the vet for fluids and checkups, her vet was expecting a baby. Guess what she named her daughter? When I was there a few months ago she told me that when I kept coming in with Phoebe it struck her that should be her baby’s name.
Now time for Penny’s tip-
Do you like Mom’s ruler? It is a Peanuts one that she has had since she was a kid.
Tomorrow we will be participating in Madi’s Come Laugh With Us Blog Hop.

*Disclaimer: I received a Kindle copy of Go On, Girl! by Hilary Grossman in exchange for a fair review.
I have enjoyed all three of Hilary’s other books and this one did not disappoint. If you like the television show, American Housewife then you will love this. Despite being fiction, this book really made me think that perhaps I am too judgemental. Just because someone appears a certain way, doesn’t mean they are that way.
Here is Hilary’s description of the book:
Executive, wife, and mother of an outgoing first-grader, Sydney Clayton crushes her day-to-day obligations at work but flounders in the cutthroat world of parental politics.
She manages to avoid the local drama until she’s faced with an ultimatum: join the Forest River PTA or risk her daughter becoming a social outcast. Sydney reluctantly becomes treasurer, and takes the recently vacated position of the president’s sidekick. If protecting the children’s freedom of speech, one best friend ban at a time, isn’t complicated enough, Sydney and her husband receive an unexpected offer for their house they don’t think they can refuse.
Embroiled in the deception and manipulation rife among the elementary school moms, Sydney struggles. Should she sell the home she worked so hard to build in a town where betrayal runs rampant? Or should she stay put to avoid the fallout from uprooting her child? As Sydney focuses on what is best for her daughter, and lets go of her judgments, she finds friendship can develop in very unexpected ways.
Warm, witty, and wise, Go On, Girl dramatizes the dilemmas of life in the suburbs and the bonds shared by women. Perfect for fans of Class Mom and I Don’t Know How She Does It.
Until 9/16, you can purchase Go On, Girl! for only 99 cents, after that time it will be $3.99. Click here for the Amazon link You can also get her last book, Plan Bea for free.

Phoebe’s favorite day of the year was Cinco de Mayo. Her Dad always gave her $5 for pole dancing and for the past few years, Grammie did too. Last year I knew in my heart it would be her last Cinco de Mayo, but I didn’t want to believe it. I used Lunapic to add a frame to her photo from last year.
Here are links to her past Cinco de Mayo celebrations:

Hi everyone! I have an unusual tip, more of a question actually. Mom made these book vases and she thinks they look to plain. I suggested she decorate them with pennies, but she doesn’t want to.
Any better suggestions of how to perk them up?
Millie is modeling Mom’s A-Z Challenge , C creation- coal , she makes these for naughty kitties at Christmas.
Don’t forget to comment on yesterday’s post to enter the giveaway for this catnip mat and socks ( Joanie is not included). Giveaway closes at 10 PM ( EST) April 3rd.
Hi everyone! Poor Penny doesn’t get to give her tip today, but we are having a giveaway.
First off, I wanted to show you a deal I found at Michael’s Craft store.
These were regularly $4.99, but were 40% off. There are 12 small felt hearts and 3 larger ones. They seem to be as well made as ones I have seen for cats. I am going to pull the small letters off the larger ones for safety though. I sprayed them with catnip spray and now I have 15 cat toys.
Joanie is here to display the items on our Valentine’s giveaway. A catnip mat, 3 nip knot toys and 3 of the felt hearts. We are also including an adorable little spoon that looks like a cat and hangs on the edge of your mug. To enter, just comment on this post before 9PM EST on Wednesday. Prancie will announce the winner on Thursday. It is open to everyone. Joanie is not included 🙂
