6 months down 6 months to go!
I yelled to the daughter to bring her sewing machine upstairs.
I loaded the thread.
Called the little boy to ask him where exactly I needed to put the Cal Ripkin patch.

TRY THE OLD WAYS -- TRY THE NEW
An ideal homemaker is prepared to perpetuate the good things she learned in her own home and is ever alert to new ideas and hints which will make her work more effective and help her to be and increasingly better homemaker.
The daily newspaper, magazines, booklets, neighbors, and mothers are fine sources of "Hints for the Homemaker." It's a good idea to make a file or indexed scrapbook of practical ideas for future reference.
