I found Command velcro last year and it's fabulous! It's a bit more expensive then regular velcro, but it held a few decently heavy items all year and didn't damage the wall or cabinet.

USB Port in Car

I have a 2013 Camry and I can charge my phone using the USB port. I prefer to use a car charger, but DH and I share one. I can and have used the USB when I need it.

Yep, just a sling. We told him he'll still be part of the team and he can help the coach out and maybe he might be able to play the last couple of games. We have to go to the orthopedist next week to...

Of course my son would break something now!

Today I was out back to school shopping with a friend, and my mom called telling me she thought I should come home to take DS2 (8) to the doctor. He jumped off his scooter into the grass. Turns out...

We have exactly what you described. Our bookcases are not built ins, just from IKEA and fit perfectly. The couch sits back far enough that you aren't really looking up. It's not a problem :)

I'm not sure how healthy it actually is, but we get Trop50 with calcium, no pulp. It has a lot less sugar than other juices.
