The swimsuit is just gorgeous but oddly, that hanging crotch would bother me. If it were hanging on a clothesline it wouldn't, but flat out like that ... I''m female in case this has anything to do with it!

One thing I try to remember: NOTHING is unimportant. When I start to prioritize I start at the top of the list and it is just too much to take on. The things at the bottom of the list never get started. Look for a stale corner and start there; it could be a drawer or a countertop. With me, the first time I thought of this was a shelf full of dusty DVDs. Since they were out of the way and other things were more important, they'd been there for several years. Then one night I decided that even though they were "unimportant" they bothered me every single time I glanced at that shelf. Same thing, if you're having company and setting things up, leaving the "little" "easy" things to last can put you in a bind. NOTHING is unimportant. It will all be very important at the last minute ... I'm not guru. I don't follow my own rules half the time but when I remember them, everything is better!

Not mentioned -- the younger generation of men may do a lot of work sharing in the house. I am older and I do ALL the housework. I don't want to be blamed for the situation -- my husband is simply beyond change. He doesn't seem to get it that the way things look reflects on me and is quite willing to live messy as long as he is comfortable himself. I would live next door in a minute. Let the guests visit my place and let his place tumble into chaos. I love that NYTimes article showing the pink and blue cottages.

I have been soaking regular oats in orange juice for years -- orange juice and water, sliced apples and raisins, overnight in the refrigerator. Delicious. Sometimes I eat them as a dessert and even put them on ice cream.
