outdoing myself with smartness

Yep, sometimes I really outdo myself with smartness...Like this Christmas I bought my husband 4 half zip sweaters (in a variety of colors) to wear to work (don't want those engineers looking sloppy now do we) that way I wouldn't have to iron or at least feel guilty at not ironing.
Inspiring-- guilty as charged. When I do things like this I like to give myself a nice big pat on the back, reward myself with a good piece of European chocolate, and say way to go smart mama! All that positive reinforcement keeps those good (or lazy) ideas coming.
What smart things have you done lately--do share?

1. chinese resteraunt FHE 2. nice phone calls 3. granting forgiveness

So wives are supposed to feel bad letting their husbands out of the house wrinkled and discheveled? Why didn't anybody tell me about that?!?

Nice job on the sweaters! With 3 boys I bet you love looking at an outfit from the #1, that you got on sale, still looking great on #3!
My simple smartness is putting gloves on the heat vent every night so that kids are happy to don their gear everyday. I need to do it for myself now!

Went ahead with clean-out-the-fridge night for dinner, despite the fact that I thought nobody would want it... they ate all our leftovers ALL gone, and I didn't have to come up with a whole new meal! (Tonight I will, though) It's good to feel like you've had the night off.

I orderered pizza for dinner and used paper plates. I didn't have to mess up my just cleaned kitchen.

Anything that will get me out of ironing is pure genious (okay, I'll admit, I didn't even own an ironing board until last year). I have to say I love the "SmartCare" shirts that are 100% cotton and don't need to be dry cleaned to look decent.

Love the sweaters. I claim no smartness. I am too delerious for smartness. Taking a nap tomorrow will count though, right?

Well, I just go ahead and let my husband iron his own stuff then I don't need to worry about it at all. How smart is that?! One less task for me!

I refuse to buy a shirt for dh unless is says wrinkle-free or no-iron. ScotchGard protected is also a plus. :)
