Divas! I'm in the market for a new, affordable+wonderful vacuum. Suggestions? Also, does anyone have an idea of how to make a rather dark room un-dark? My living room has one big window, but it's in the wrong place. Incidentally, the room hardly ever gets any sunlight. It's the darkest room in the house and the most used, I need to make it bright and pretty. Aside from my pleas for help I have this: I made a very tasty apple bread! Incredibly exciting. I have apple trees in my back yard, and one day decided to make apple juice (it was really fun!). I had pulp left and instead of trying to make apple sauce, I heated it with butter and cinnimon to make a mush, then mixed it with a plain white cake mix, flour and eggs. The texture was much like a bran muffin, but it was quite yummy. Oh! One more thing. I've discovered that manufacturer's coupons coupled with the weekly newspaper+value pack coupons that come in the mail+your store card of choice (Safeway etc.) saves you upwards of $20 on a stock-up grocery trip.
