You might remember a few weeks ago I turned a whole load of white laundry pink, including a couple of my really nice white master bathroom towels. Well, one of you brilliant folks suggested that I try the Rit Color Remover. It took some hunting, but a certain place (that I really dislike visiting) that begins with Wal and ends in Mart came through for me…and for a dollar fifty two (or some such) I have my sparkling whites back. I’ve actually had the color remover for at least a week, and I just kept putting it off, thinking that since it was my last resort I just hated to use it and see it fail. Well, today I finally got around to it…and girls!, this stuff works miracles! My pinks had been washed and dried (though I was drying them on low heat until they were just barely dry, trying not to set in that color) a few times, but the color came out! WooHooo!
My other breakthrough for the day was not nearly so life altering, but it sure did put a smile on my face. Today I had to take all four of my beasties children to the land of torture grocery store. While they didn’t do anything really bad, it was one of those times that I was so very glad when I put that last thing in my cart and said, “Let’s get out of here.” Then all the lines were long, and I wanted to cry. Instead of crying I focused all of my energies on choosing a kind of candy and getting it into the cart with none of my extra eyes seeing. And I did! I managed to buy myself a treat without anyone noticing…and I ate it all myself without anyone noticing that either! And, thanks to that sugar rush, I made it all the way home tear free!
