I seem to feel much better today. I slept like a baby last night. Fell aslep at 8:45 while watching Top Gear. Apparently, British accents relax me enough to sleep. I did a fat load last night. Ate a lot of the cream sauce that came with the chicken scampi I made and had a tea with coconut oil before bed. I ate so much fat, I woke up feeling full from last night.
I've been looking into ways to save money ( I know, aren't we all ) so I am researching making a lot of the soaps that we use in the house. I've found recipes for making laundry soap and fabric softener that I am going to make this weekend. A friend of mine does this and she love it. Says her clothes are cleaner and softer than ever. Plus, I'm finding where certain products tend to break out others in the family differently, so I figured what the heck. I want to eventually make my own body washes and lotions as well.
Geo you can use baking soda and vinegar for cleaning.
Also check out the CaveGirlEats site, for skin care. So cheap using her oil cleansing method, and works really well too.
I know I can use that for cleaning, but with my family, I'd need more than that for the clothes. They would have a freak out moment. I did see where you can make fabric softener with water, baking soda and vinegar. I just use water on my face and moisturize with coconut oil. I exfoliate my face once a week. The idea of oil cleansing seems a bit much to me.
Geo, I just read what happened to your daughters. So scary! I just heard about "Alabama Boy" the 5 year old who was locked in a bunker for a week who was finally rescued by the FBI. They said he celebrated his 6th birthday yesterday. Made my heart hurt. I don't know what it is with people in our society trying to snatch kids!! An elementary school nearby had a scare like that recently. Someone tried to abduct a kid while at recess or something. I don't get it!
I'm glad your neighbors are being vigilant. Hugs to you all.
