Home Cleaning

Ok Angel this is for you!

I figured out how to take the stink out of the Vinegar for cleaning. I ended up using 1/2 cup vinegar and about 2 cups of hot water. I squirted 1/4 Tsp. of Dr. Bronner's Magic Soap
in the bucket. It totally took the stink away. I used the Tea Tree oil soap. I think they sell it at a store in downtown Murfreesboro. But I am pretty sure any health food store would have that or something similar. I haven't tried Lemon Juice instead of the soap so I am not sure how it would work. Oh and I used Baking Soda and Borax for my scrubbing agent. OMG I love my tub now. It is SOOOOOOOO shiny.

By the way the other people reading this, the above is an excellent alternative for a cleaning agent for tubs, floors, sinks and toilets. No harsh chemicals. Plus being all pregnant it makes me feel better that I am not smelling all the nasty fumes from say scrubbing bubbles or BAM! scrub for the toilet. I think it works way better than the other products plus is SOOOO cheap!

Little Thrills

Its so weird when you become an adult what actually makes you happy. Cheap Thrills as I call them. I just got done balancing our budget/checkbook. It wasn't updated since July 1st! Yikes. So I started a clean worksheet (in Excel) and went from today and punched in all the checks that haven't come through yet.
I love Friday's because its pay day. Its nice to see money that will stay in there until most of the next week. I haven't had to worry about over drafting in such a long time since I started to use Excel for our receipts.
Another thrill of mine, seeing wet laundry turn dry after hang up outside in the summer air. Since its around 100 Degrees it doesn't take too long to dry shirts. Free Dryer!
A cheap thrill for Julianna, running around with no undies/diapers on and knowing when to use the potty. Cross my fingers she hasn't had any accidents today. She has been in undies since around 9:30 this morning. Once she feels she has to go, she runs to the bathroom and shouts "PEEEEEEPEEEE!!" I run in, give her a high five and a sticker. That girl is not hard to please.
