Did you know Kool-Aid will go bad?

It never occurred to me that Kool-Aid would go bad. I mean, it's sugar, water, and flavoring... anyway, the kids like to mix flavors. Strawberry with lemonade, blue-raspberry with fruit punch, etc. They must not have liked the last mixture they made. I can't even tell you what it was because it was in the fridge for so long. They wouldn't drink it, but I kept leaving it in there trying to convey the message to drink it before they made more.

It sat in there so long that I finally decided to drink it myself, and I don't like Kool-Aid much because it gives me heartburn. Let me tell you, it was nasty! When I actually looked inside the pitcher, there was mold growing on the bottom, underneath the liquid!

Lesson learned, don't leave it in the fridge for weeks, it's better to just toss it if they don't drink it.

Our dog Milo won't come in the living-room because he doesn't like to walk on the new laminate flooring. He was doing fine for almost two months after we put it down. Then he started slipping and sliding on it for no apparent reason. My in-laws said that he might be having problems with his hips since he is a large-breed dog (black lab/rottweiler). We changed his food to one that contains glucosamine and he's making progress!

It started with him just putting his front paws on the floor, but leaving his back paws on more familiar flooring... he'll now come onto the new floor with all four paws, but JUST onto the floor, lol! He leaves himself so he can quickly scoot off of it if he wants too. He's so silly!

I have a lot of tutorials and stuff planned to do, but time hasn't been on my side. I started my fifth class of the semester on Friday, so my class work load is heavier. (I still don't quite understand why that class started three weeks after the other four.)

Stay tuned, I hope to get something interesting up this week, at least one thing, darn it, lol!


  1. Crystal Light will do the same thing and I have no one but myself to blame for that. :)

    I'm glad Milo is doing better!

  2. Crystal Light? No wonder it went bad, lol!

  3. WOW! I didn't know that - I have heard about the Capri Sun pouches having mold in them.

  4. Oh ewww, and the kids love those. Thank goodness I don't buy them too often.
