At least $5-10 per mile....and a makeup question

February 9th, 2009 at 01:03 am

Vacations...or the down time they provide, always make me think.

On the drive home today, I noticed a soda can on the side of the road...and a couple of water bottles...followed by 5 more cans..You see, in Oregon, cans and bottles each have a nickel deposit....and are then redeemable for a nickel. So I counted for a mile....almost 100....the next...well over 100....and while I didnt continue to count...I did continue to see bottles and cans for miles! IN this day and is amazing that people will throw good money out the window---much less have such a who-gives-a-rip attitude about littering up such beautiful land.


Then, this weekend I re-encountered a problem that occurs just about every time I travel. I am sure many of you ladies encounter the same, but it made me think that I should pose the question here to see what kind of ideas you all have.

I got up Saturday morning, showered and went to put on some makeup...low and behold TWO of the powdered compacts (one blush, one powdered make-up) had apparently jarred during the trip and the cakes had all broken into little pieces. THIS IS SO FRUSTRATING...but it jist seems like after you use these things for a while, they just break like this! I usually continue to use them, being careful there are no clumps on the brush before applying, but it is still inconvenient and wastes money. What do you guys do when this happens???

The prime rib was fabulous last night. The last of our vacation went wonderfully...but it is always good to get home.

Now, back to work tomorrow!

    hmmm. i got so frustrated with those i started using loose powder (a mineral foundation i think is loreal or maybelline or something like that). anyway, i havent looked back! once you master the loose powder i find its much easier to use and more of a 'free' feeling on your face. thats my advice Big Grin
