While I was driving to Savvy Blogging Summit this past June, I suddenly became ill.  In what seemed like an instant, my throat started to hurt and I got stuffed up.  I spent the rest of the weekend miserable before finally leaving early to head home and then stop at the local urgent care before even stopping at my house. This post with tips for clearing out some germs from your house with quick … [Read more...]

There are times when you may have clutter around your house that you don't even recognize as such.  It might be that big, expensive treadmill that hasn't been used … [Read more...]

I Did a Scary Thing with My Breakfast Dishes

Finish Quantum

This week, I did something that made me shiver as I anticipated the horror that would await me as a result of my actions.  I'm the kind of gal that completely rinses off all of my dishes before putting them into the dishwasher.  It was how I learned to use the dishwasher, and that's just what I always do.  But, not one day this week, my friends. You see, I was contacted by Finish to take the … [Read more...]

Teaching Children Laundry Skills

Teaching Children about Laundry

I was blessed to never have had to do the laundry growing up.  My Mom took care of everyone's laundry, although I'm not really sure how she stayed caught up with so many people in the house.  In fact, I don't even remember putting clothes away, so I imagine that means she did that too. This meant, however, that as I was 19 and gearing up for my wedding and moving out of my parents' house, I … [Read more...]

Go read … [Read more...]
