Laundry Detergent and Diligence

*** I have been using this soap for months now and absolutely love it! ***

I got all these ingredients from Wal-Mart for a total of $19.97! Here's what you will need:

Project #6 and What's for Dinner?

So, it's Wednesday morning - 10:28. Muffin is fast asleep. And I'm hungry. How is your morning?

Oliver had his 12 month vaccinations on Friday morning (4 in his chubby thighs) and he broke out in hives. They are terrible looking. (google them for a glimpse of disturbing images). So we rushed him to a walk-in clinic and they put him on steroids. After picking up the prescription, I scanned the side affects section anxiously looking at how this would affect his sleeping patterns. (by the way - I can never remember when to use effect/affect) When a prescription bottle for a young babe reads "may cause difficulty sleeping", I suddenly become very anxious at how this will affect (or effect) the next 10 days. Not that every mother looks for "may cause drowsiness" on the label.......  Although, sleeping may help Oliver relax a bit more, since he has been very irritable since his shots.

Happy Birthday Oliver

Our Oliver is 1.

When I had Oliver, many people told me to enjoy each moment because they will fly by. They were correct, for the most part. When I look back over the past year, this time went by very fast; however, there were many days (even months) that seemed to creep along at a snails pace. Why is it that the hardest and most frustrating days seem the longest and the best days are the shortest? I want to change that. 

We had a wonderful party with family to celebrate Oliver's special day!
