Oh man! I'm finally starting to feel better! Yay!! My head feels clear, I don't feel flu-ish, my congestion is still kicking but less fiercely. The only problem is, I'm still really tired. I can't seem to kick that yet - but hopefully tomorrow I will feel more energy. I haven't clocked a lot of shut eye the past two nights. Tuesday was the sad, sad anniversary of Dave's fathers passing - we had a late night of being with family and remembering such a wonderful man. Then, last night...this happened:
So that is why I haven't been sleeping too well the last few nights! Whew! No celebrating St. Pattys Day for the Blands, this year anyways. However, I did make a delightful Irish dinner: Irish Shepherd's Pie with warm bread, it was SO yummy, look:
But enough of that ick - i - ness!!
Since Dave & Ash both have bad allergies sometimes, and we are on a quest to be healthier as a family overall (pretend you don't see that huge 1000 calorie dinner pic up there!) I have decided to slowly change over all our household products to all-natural supplies. There are so many options in this area. In the one blog I adore, a bowl full of lemons , the host of this blog sells Shaklee products. Once I read about the Basic H product I was sold. Then I read how BAD regular cleaning products are for you and your household (words like allergies and cancer were thrown at me!) I was REALLY sold. So after lots of research I ordered the Basic H product AND the Scour Off product which is for deep cleaning like on and in the stove, etc.
Theres another line called Norwex and a few friends of mine are hosting parties for this line. I still want to check out their all natural products too - they seem to have a lot of good stuff but nothing equivalent to this awesome stuff.
That is my quest to making our home more healthy and green. I never really cared about that before, but if it helps US be more healthy I'm all for it. Does anyone else use these products? I can't wait to start cleaning with them this weekend, I wish I could now but I have not the energy! I'll let you know how I like them when I do!
Oh and book 4 is The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin. I love it so far!
I hope everyone is having a great week. Mine is looking up! I have got lots of projects to do this weekend, including a Budget Box and jazzing up my guest bedroom and craft room. That means lots of organizing - oooo that excites me!
