Thank Goodness for Sisters

and sock books.

So, recent Valentine's post on socks stirred some chat.
Suggestions for resolving the sock issue were productive and I think streamlining our socks into
only one or two versions makes a lot of sense.

(Let me pause for just a moment to ask again,...'how did I end up here?' From productive pharmacist, curing diease and illness, to stay at home mom, stuck in a foreign country, blogging about lone socks? Hmmmm.... it gives pause eh?
Before I fall into identity crisis, I say 'I digress'. )

But what to do with the singles that are still 'desperately seeking a mate'?
Answer? > Sister (a.k.a. Aunt Betsy). Supporting her country and military family abroad,
sent a couple of books to keep us all from despair.
"Stray Sock Sewing", ( I know! Who knew?)
both books are chalked full of ideas and plans to create with our very lonely strays and loving offspring.
Thanks again Bets.

You can earn $20 for completing a 20 minute survey!

Guess what? This is exactly what big companies are paying me for. They need to know what their customer base needs and wants. So these companies pay $1,000,000's of dollars per month to the average person. In return, the average person, like me and you, answers some questions and gives them their opinion.
