Wear gloves for butternut squash

I learned the hard way that when handling raw butternut squash (or any other orange squash) that it's a good idea to wear latex gloves. Butternut squash has enzymes that can act like a chemical skin peel. My fingers turned orange and the skin got really tight and then started peeling over the next day, but only on the hand touching the raw squash. My right hand, which held the knife, was fine. Had to research online to figure out what happened.

Popcorn Tip

Measure out and put your popcorn serving in your own small bowl. This will help you keep from over-indulging. I always over do it when I dive into the massive family bowl of popcorn. With my own smaller serving, I stop when it's gone, and leave the family bowl for the kids.

ElastoGel Knee wraps

I LOVE my elastogel knee wraps. You put them in the freezer and reuse them as often as you need. I usually ice my bad knees every night , thus reducing the amount of pain meds I have to take. They come in different sizes and the gel is flexible, so the wrap goes entirely around the knee. emoticon

Get Your Sneakers on First Thing

Stay-at-home moms and dads, get dressed and get your sneakers on first thing in the morning. I get so much more done when I've got my running shoes on. Even if I don't find enough time to do planned exercise, the housework I get done makes up for it! emoticon
