Scary housewife.  Hey! I just took some little pills my doctor gave me. He said they might pep me up a little. I just cleaned the house, did all the laundry, mowed the lawn, painted the house, washed the cars, ironed hubby's shirts, knitted sweaters for everyone for Christmas, panelled the basement Rumpus Room, organized all the spices and canned food in alphabetical order ... Ummm.... there was just one more thing .... OH! I forgot to pick those darn kids up at school!  Gotta Skeedaddle…

Happy Shopper <=> I would be happy also if prices were equal to income! from Roger Wilkerson, The Suburban Legend!
