Not To Mention The Heartache

My husband and I agree there are some introductory investments well worth the sacrifice because in the end they pay for themselves. For instance, we pretty much agree that a $40 a month dry cleaning bill is cheaper than a marriage counselor. Likewise, no one can argue that a small fire extinguisher for your kitchen is much cheaper than a post-grease-fire remodel.

Today we learned that the $50 quiet-close / no-slam toilet lid found at the local hardware store is significantly cheaper than a panicked trip to Urgent Care after 5 p.m. on a Friday evening with one of your little boys screaming and yelling. Penile contusion, that's all I'm saying.

Invest in the little things.

How funny! We have had contusions from pant zippers, never a lid. Let me say those can be very difficult in working out. However, I am still looking for velcro style pants or dress pants with elastic waist for a teenager.
