Bought cloth napkins

January 1st, 2012 at 11:03 am

Eh, why not? Figured we'd give them a try and see if we liked them. Hey, every dinner should feel like we're at a fancy restaurant now! Big Grin They should go so nicely with our vintage 70s corelle plates...

I love this time of year and hitting the after Christmas sales! That's how we ended up with the napkins in the first place. We picked up a few gifts for next year, as well as a few things we can use now. We are good at thinking outside the box with clearance items. My mom still wants a new Christmas tree, but I haven't found a price I like yet. Still looking...

We made it through Christmas ok. It was rather quiet and not too many gifts - just how we wanted it. Got to meet my brother's new girlfriend. Wow, she didn't seem crazy. Very polite and nice. That's quite a change from the ex-wife.

Other than the holidays, it's just been life as usual here. Always something. My dog has to have surgery on Tuesday to remove a LARGE tumor/cyst from his rear leg - up toward his butt. He started chewing at it during our road trip to see DH's family, and it's been nothing but a bloody mess since then. We went to the vet on the 19th and the earliest they could get him in for surgery is January 3rd. It's been a LONG couple of weeks. We finally have him in a soft e-collar and he is miserable. I figure we have at least another week or two of collar wearing. Poor thing. Frown He didn't need the collar after his last surgery, so I have no idea how this one will go. He's a 15 y.o. neurotic mess - quite unpredictable. So we get to start 2012 shelling out a nice chunk of change. His health is "perfect" otherwise, so this is really affecting his quality of life at the moment. He starts biting at it no less than 5 minutes after the collar comes off. Yes, it must go.

We thought something was wrong with the beagle too! That seems to have cleared itself up. She was limping when she first got up from laying down, then she would walk it off and walk normal. We suspected arthritis, but I think she just hurt her leg somehow. Seems fine now.

I'm trying to get caught up on some things this weekend. As usual, too much I want to do and not enough time to do it. Oh yeah... I also have WORK to do. The joys of working in HR this time of year. I have just a few changes I need to get into the system by Tuesday. Losing two days for holidays this time of the year really does not help matters. Fine in theory, but I don't entirely get to enjoy the days off if I have to work.

Happy New Year everyone!! 2011 was such a difficult year for us. I need to see some good things happen in 2012.

    We use cloth napkins and really like them. I'm not sure if we save a ton of money by using them because we do wash and dry them and sometimes iron them, but I figure I'm doing my bit for the trees ... and we resuse them after more than one meal unless it was sloppy.

    Hope 2012 is better for you.

    Thanks for the input on the napkins! I'm not too worried about money savings. Mostly I can't be bothered to buy napkins I guess. I don't mind having to wash them. Our last pack of paper napkins was free and they ran out a month or two ago. We've been using a roll of lousy (free) paper towels that don't soak anything up. They work ok as napkins though. I guess I just wanted to try something different. Glad to hear you like yours! I hope we like ours too. Smile
