Kitchen Makeover Wish List

I watch Home and Garden TV shows a lot so when we had our kitchen makeover few years back, I knew exactly what I wanted. We upgraded our counter top from laminate to granite which made it more elegant and of course easier to clean, and the sink was upgraded to double undermount kitchen sinks. The cheap looking linoleum floor was upgraded to terracotta tiles. I also have beige back splash installed that compliments the dark granite. I still have a lot of ideas but budget ran low so I have to hold it up for some future time. In my wish list would be a walk-in pantry for all my groceries, small kitchen appliances and pans and pats and more! I'd love to have a separate laundry room cum craft room too.

No More Running Out of Batteries

I'm sure most moms like me would agree that they spend a lot on batteries since most toys nowadays are battery operated. Most of my son's toys need batteries. His latest fave toy is the one he got for his birthday - a remote controlled car that uses six triple A batteries on the remote control and another 6 double A batteries on the car, how expensive! If he plays with the car for maybe two hours in a day, which he really does since it's new and he's still excited about it, in three days the batteries will be out. Thank God for aaa rechargeable batteries, I don't need to spend too much on batteries. My son won't bug me to change the batteries in his toys anymore and I don't have to rush to the store if I ran out of batteries too. It's a win-win situation for everybody, everybody happy!
