First question: What do you do for a those nagging symptoms? Please share your favorite remedies for runny nose, coughing, mildly sore throat, and sneezing. We’ve treated all the –itises with antibiotics. These symptoms are just lingering and now we’re trying to kill them.
Second question: What do you use to clean your house? Please share which are your favorite household cleaners that are considered eco-friendly. You know the ones “they” say are good because the ingredients won’t kill anyone if they drink it, inhale it, get it on skin, etc. I’ve tried some before and threw them out because A) they stank, or B) they didn’t seem to work, i.e., if I’m going to scrub that hard I may as well use water. If you’ve done the same thing, then tell me what you decided to stick with using.
Your expertise is greatly appreciated.
Confession: I’m sorry I haven’t updated the blog as regularly this week. I’m feeling a bit out-of-sorts and overwhelmed. It’s one of those weeks in which I have so much to do around the house that I am almost paralyzed. One look at the piles of laundry makes me want to curl up in the fetal position, suck my thumb, and pray that all housework would disappear. (Is that not ridiculous? I know life could be so much worse). Nothing gets done while I’m teaching, and I have to teach the kids. But I also have to clean the house. Thus, the overwhelmed feelings and fretting that I’m just not enough for this family. And so I sit and boo-hoo and whine about it when I need to just suck it up and get it done. Whew, just admitting that makes me feel better! Blogging = therapy.
2 Corinthians 9:8 says, “And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.” I love that verse. Are housekeeping and homeschooling included in “good work?” I hope so, because this week I’m feeling really overwhelmed and whiny about it all.
If you say “hormones,” I’ll deck you.
I’m totally kidding about that last part.
