Toilet Paper, Anyone?

I have a business and a family of six so purchasing supplies and/or household items in bulk is a regular occurence. However, even though the 24 pack of cream of chicken soup, 8 boxes of crackers and the 36 pack of quick noodles are great and may help out in a local food emergency, there is something very satisfying about hauling a case of toilet paper through the door and stacking the rolls on a shelf. I feel like I have done my duty as the owner of a toilet and as a mother.

I'm not sure if it's because there are not a whole lot of appropriate alternatives, or because once you realize you are out-of-stock, it is not usually convenient to make a quick run to the corner store.

So does a cupboard full of my favorite brand of toilet paper make me prepared, or just weird?

A New Year!

For just a bit after the Holiday season, there is always a short time to catch your breath from both crazy schedules and a busy sales season. I'm not so sure which is worse: being so busy you don't have time to think, or having a little extra time and not sure what project to do first (if any). I'll let you know what I decide.
