    Our shower curtain is a clear liner from Dollar General. I think I paid $5 for it. I got a long curtain panel to use as a decorative curtain. But, the curtain only covers half the tub, by design. I have it draped lazily toward the wall. It's blue and white and beige striped.

    A REALLY well rung out mop will prevent the water spotting/pooling on the hardwoods. And make sure you mop WITH the grain - for some reason this just makes it look better. And probably dry mopping is a good idea too. My floors are wood "laminate" so I can't use any cleaners on them without it getting streaky and cloudy looking. I use water and vinegar only and they look nice afterwards - matte shine. Good luck finding that secret mix for your floor. Check pinterest for ideas. In most cases, you'll have to try a ton of different things before something works the way you want it to.

    My really well rung out sponge mop still left little pools. I mopped with the grain. [[shrug]] Not a big deal to me to just do smaller sections & towel it off after, but I'm weird. My mom offered to buy me some Swiffer pads (we have the mop part) to make it easier on move-out day so I might just do that. I AM going to mop the kitchen floor with vinegar though. I want to make sure I cut any grease with the vinegar & that it doesn't get sticky from cleaning spray.

    I'm avoiding pinterest because some of the things I read, like using veggie oil to improve shine, can be really damaging for your floors. Veggie oil will go rancid and screw things up! The floors really need a new coat of poly, so there isn't much "shine" for me to observe and I can't see that they are any cleaner. They look fine swept, I just want to be a good tenant and clean up after myself .

    The shower liners were something like $2.39 at Target . I probably won't bother with a decorative curtain.

    I think onions are off the table. My stomach felt like it was burning a little (but no heartburn) after lunch. My new digestive enzymes come tomorrow. I wonder if those will make a difference. I got a smaller bottle of Digest Gold, which has a better spectrum of enzymes than most of the other enzyme products I've read the labels on.

    Plans for tonight: maybe try running if the weather holds out. Get fud & make dinner! Put the shower liners up at the new apartment & sweep the LR. Finish sweeping LR at old apartment & pack up the KitchenAid mixer. I'm thinking I might just go ahead and make those almond meal cookies, gut be damned...

    I'm totally out of food ideas. I guess I'll just stick with pureed squash & meat for meals right now, along with the soup/broth. I'm going to roast a chicken soon so I have some meat prepped that I can just grab for meals for the next few days. When Hulky gets back, we'll probably be having mixed dinners, with him eating whatever we have usually eaten in the past and me eating the meat from the meal, with my own veggies =\. I will try pureed cauliflower as "mash" sometime soon to see how that sits with me. Having cauliflower or brocolli back in my diet would be useful, but if I can't eat it, I can't eat it.

    Oh HERE we go! Finally a chart that makes sense!
    The Stages of SCD

    I just don't know if I should go back to and stay on the Intro diet longer until my constipation improves? What if it doesn't? At least it's only 400 mg of magnesium citrate now and I don't FEEL constipated. That is definitely improvement!

    My "wood" floors are in my kitchen, dining room and bathrooms. Not mopping occasionally is not an option with kids and pets that make big messes (hello, why can't boys hit the toilet???) and general kitchen messes. Our living room, bedrooms are all carpeted, and I would assume they wouldn't need more than a dust mopping occasionally.

    I think onions are a problem for me. I noticed heartburn after eating the soup in which I blended onions (over the past few days). I also had heartburn after the stuffed butternut squash, which had an onion sauteed in it. From what I've read, usually cooked onions are not a problem, but some people have issues with raw onions. I am just unlucky.

    Using onions to make stock (and removing them) did not appear to be a problem (based on my first few chicken soup batches), however, so that's promising. Maybe this is something the digestive enzymes will help with. For now, I will remove them from my cooking =\.

    No. Seriously no. If one person ever hears this he will get shit for the rest of his life. Men do not pee sitting down.

    Why can't they hit the toilet? Well, mostly we can, but imagine for a moment you have a fire hose in your hands, but not just any fire hose, one where you do not necessarily have control of how forceful the stream is. Now imagine that sometimes the stream of 'water' comes out not as one stream but as two, and not two that even go the same direction. How the hell is this possible you ask? How can you have a need to own more than 2 pairs of shoes? Fuck if we know, but that is nature my friend, and you might as well just sigh and put up with it.


    But seriously, do not teach him to pee sitting down.
