I am finally blogging! Man it has been a rough couple weeks. First off...thank you all for the super sweet comments and well wishes for little Liv. You are all so very kind. Poor baby has never been so sick in her life! We finally took her to the Doc after nearly a week of the pukies and (dare I say it) well, "slimy poops" as livy calls it...you catch my drift. :) Come to find out they think she caught the dreaded Rotavirus. And to make matters worse, it caused her intestines to stop moving anything through and she developed an "ileus", or something like that. It was awful all by itself, and then she passed it on to the rest of us. Needless to say...Clorox Disinfecting Wipes have become my new best friends. YUCK!!! Onto happier things...
Ok, so I decided that if I didn't get better at this whole blogging thing, I am going to have to cancel it. Really. I can't justify the 90 buckers a year if I only document a couple times a month. Soooo....to make it easier on me I decided to come up with a blog schedule. Let me know what ya think. ;)
- Tip Tuesday: I always come across cool products or processes that make my life easier and thought it would be cool to share. Who knows, they might help you simplify too.
- Recipe Thursday: Cooking/baking is probably my very favorite thing in the world (It's my therapy!) and I've taken zillions of cooking classes...thought I'd share the love.
- Scrapping Sunday: I am HORRIBLE at posting my layouts....might as well have a set day to show off my latest, right?! :)
That's it for the time being. 3 times a week. Nothing too overwhelming, but at least it gives me a starting point. Suggestions are welcome!
And since today is Tuesday (at least for the next hour), I might as well end with some tips that I quite enjoy. Let me preface the recommendations by giving you a little background: I hate laundry. More than hate...I DESPISE it with every single ounce of my being. It's not the actual sorting and washing that irks me so bad, it's the drying, folding, and putting away that makes me insane. I'm a tad *anal* and a teensy-weensy-teeny-tiny bit of a "control freak" so my quirks make this chore all the more deplorable. I *hang* all of Todd's and my stuff to dry so I've constantly got garb dangling in doorways and draped over the backs of our dining room chairs. (Believe-you-me the laundry room in our new house is going to be FABULOUS!!!) And then after I meticulously fold everything into tidy little piles, it has to be placed in the drawers just so. (It's a bad day when Princess Olivia decides to play dress-up from out of her dresser.) It takes me forever, and I constantly have a pile of stuff that needs to be folded because I simply run out of time. So here is a little something that I recently found that has made my laundy situation a bit more enjoyable.
If you click on the picture it will take you to the website so you can take a quiz to see which scent suits you. I am dying to try the Magnolia & Orange blossom next. ahhhhhhhhhh (Yes, these are the lame kind of things that make me happy. PATHETIC. LOL)
And here is my last laundry related tip. As you can imagine, I am an ironing nut as well. I iron EVERYTHING we all wear (wait...Todd is responsible for his own, but I do the rest...Thank heaven for dry cleaners!) I discovered this cool product a couple years ago, and then forgot about it for a while. Then picked some up at the store the last time I was there and fell in love again. Makes my life soooooo much easier!
I really love the *green* scent (vibrant freshness), but could only find the pink. Either way, it's straight from heaven. Just spray and go.
Well that is more than enough blabbing from me. Thank you all again for commenting when Olivia was sick...AND for checking in here when I haven't posted for so long. Hope the rest of your week is happy!
