My house is topsy-turvy from gifts that my girls have (so far) received. Winner in this category is D2, the teacher, who took home 4 sack-full of gifts! We (D1,D3,D4 and I) are eagerly anticipating the gift-opening for surely D2 can't use all the gifts by herself. We have to help! Hahaha...

My son did his Christmas shopping yesterday. He asked his dad for his weekly allowance and spent it all for his sisters' and Ethan's gifts. While shopping, he texted me and asked if he could use his credit card to augment his shopping money. He said he wanted to buy a real cool tool for me, a lead detection kit that I could use checking the lead content of paints I use for my work. I thanked him for the thought and said "no" since I'm the one who pays for his credit card bills anyway.

Speaking of lead detection kits, I think I could really make real good use of one. The kit is easy to use as all I need to do is squeeze and crush the lead indicator at the designated points; shake the swab and gently squeeze it until a yellowish liquid comes out the tip. Immediately rub the tip on the surface to be tested. If the area turns pink, then there's at least 5% lead in it. This kit is great! I can have the results in less than 30 minutes. I could really use this lead kit for the house and for my construction work.

I guess I should let my son use my credit card so he could buy me this kit for my Christmas gift.
