The Hermit Crab Is...

Dead.

It's probably been weeks, but I didn't have the guts to look.

My daughter brought the matter to my attention yesterday and since the hermit crab belongs to her little brother she was very concerned about his reaction. To tell you the truth, I am too.

That's why I'm staging the scene to make it look like the hermit crab is still alive. Rest assured, I've disposed of the carcass and sanitized everything that remains. And now the waiting begins. It's possible that it's been a couple of months since little brother has played with the hermit crab, so it's likely that it could take him a couple more months to discover what I already know.

On the other hand, he might notice tonight. I realize I'm not necessarily prolonging the inevitable... unless it's not inevitable.

Here's where my motherly instincts may be running amok. Is it possible to never admit to the death of hermit crab? If he does ever realize that the hermit crab is gone, might it…

Littleton In The Fall

The coolers days have me thinking about what I'd love to do with my kids, my friends, my hubby, or maybe even all by myself (gasp!) in the days ahead. Here are a few on my list:

#10: Dream about holiday dinners and slow-simmered meals while browsing the shelves at Savory Spice

#9: Bringing a blanket and sipping on some apple cider (BYO) while the sun sets at Sterne Park

#8: Stopping by the Bemis Library on Sat, Sept 18 for Animal Adventures with Safari Sally

#7: Making plans for a night out with my man, or best girl friend, at JaJa's Bistro

#6: Now that the crowd has passed, taking a trip by Sniagrab for some cool weather deals

#3: Stopping by Lola's Sugar Rush to tempt myself with some pre-Halloween treats

Here's Some Progress: The Pillow Question

I hope everyone is enjoying the great Denver area deals, but I have something else on mind this weekend.

Pillows.

Maybe you've had the same question too: How long?

How long is the life of a pillow?

According to an article written by Kelli B. Grant at Yahoo Finance (Feb 2007):

PILLOWS
Replace after: Two years
Why: Pressure on the pillow as you sleep causes it to flatten, and develop uncomfortable bumps and lumps, says GHI's Huddy. To test if your pillow still has life in it, she says, fold it in half and rest your hand on top for 30 seconds. Then let go. "If the pillow pops back, it's fine," she says. If it remains folded, it's time to buy a new one.

Life the Green Way, a blog out of Birmingham, shares similar information:

"Sleep experts recommend replacing top-quality pillows every 2 to 3 years and never using a cheap pillow for more than a few months at a time.
It is also important to note that although people get fitted for shoes and clothing, they …
