My friends – I’ve thought of something so cool. Today, let’s share some helpful tips. Perhaps there is something that you do to make life easier for you that could make life easier for everyone.
For instance, mom has three magnets on the refrigerator. One is a dog, one is a cat and one is an alligator. Yes you read that right. An alligator – rolls piggy eyes. Mommy couldn’t find a piggy magnet. Too funny that the alligator represents me – snorts. Anyway, they are always kept in the same spot on the fridge. When mom feeds the cats, she takes down the cat one. When she feeds the dog, she takes down the dog one. And then when she feeds moi, she takes down the alligator one. That way, just in case she is running late or sleeping in and daddy has to feed us, he knows which one of us have been fed or not fed. So no more double feeding – darns it.
Another thing mom does at work is that she keeps a shot glass on her desk. Snorts and rolls with piggy laughter – not for drinking you funny person. She keeps her staple remover in it. She goes through a LOT of papers and a lot of times has to remove the staples. She removes the staples and then puts them in the shot glass to hold them while she goes through the entire stack of papers. Then all she has to do and toss the contents from the shot glass when she is finished. Something easy that helps her out a bit.
Do ever wonder how daddy is able to do household chores without ‘seeing’? For anyone that has vision problems, these are very helpful tips. Mom taped a toothpick to the washing machine. When daddy does the washing, he feels for the toothpick so he knows how far to turn the dial. Mom also taped a key disc (you know the ones that are colored and are empty in the middle that you put on your keys for coding) to the oven on the “on” button. If daddy wants to cook something in the oven, he feels for the disc and is able to turn the oven on. Mom also put a key disc on the on button of the microwave.
