Okay, so, I went out to my car this morning and saw that someone had gone through my car! I was thinking of you, revolting, and thanking the Universe that I leave my car unlocked so they could just get in to see there was nothing. I drive a 1999 Honda Civic that doesn't even have a tape deck! I bet those hooligans were bummed... it just freaks me out that they were that close to my house. I want to do a little cleansing ritual on it. Maybe on the full moon I'll open the doors wide for 15 minutes and let the moon and breezes just clear the air. ick. That being said, I feel sad for people who are so desperate this time of year.
Belly Dancing! FUN! I can see not liking to hike although that's a bummer in Asheville! I hear there are great trails and whatnot. I'll be thinking of you tomorrow, lady!!
redveg: when do you start hearing back from the schools? eeek! that's got to be incredibly depleting emotionally... bah! Sending you lots of love and patience!!
Stinks about the car but glad they didn't trash it. cleansing ritual sounds perfect. Yes we have heard back from a school for my DS, he's in if he wants:) It was a huge weight off his shoulders. We haven't heard back from his number one pick, won't until about the 20th of December. Thanks for asking.
My mom rarely locks her car door, and she used to leave her keys in the car too! My brother and I finally convinced her to lock the car and what happens? Someone breaks the window! Needless to say, she went back to leaving things open. I'm glad your car wasn't hurt and nothing was taken.
Different topic- anyone have a fav deoderant recipe? I am super stinky! LOL Either I use a really serious antipers-deoderant which causes redness/peeling after a day or two OR I use the natural/crunchy stuff and stink by noon. Any ideas?
We never lock our car doors. We are so far out in the sticks you have to know we are here to find us:) I use the natural stuff and it's a guessing game if it will hold up.
Take the body cream of your choice (or coconut oil but I find it a wee bit greasy) and mix in as much baking soda as you can without it getting crumbly. That's it. It will make a white mark on your fancy black clothes if you put it on right before dressing, though, so apply it in advance and wipe it off before you dress to go out - or skip a day - we find we now can.
Worked on my BO and especially on my dd's adolescent BO, which was becoming a real problem. I find we don't need to use it every day now as it does such a good job of keeping those odor bacteria at bay.
Thanks for posting, I am going to try:)
Clay and DoK-I make my own deodorant. Its 2-3Tbs of coconut oil, 1/4 cup each baking soda and cornstarch. Mix until smooth. Rub a pea size amount under each arm. Baking soda for the stink, cornstarch for the sweat. Works very very well. I can skip a day in between (even with showering!) and it still works. I had to apply store bought deodorant twice a day after my last baby was born (thank you hormones....) and this is great! I do find it tends to dry my skin out some, but with the next batch I make I'm going to add a little more coconut oil and that should help. This stuff lasts a long long time, too, and you'll save sooo much cash. Oh, almost forgot-you can add 10-15 drops of an essential oil in there, too. A lot of recipes I've seen use tea tree oil.
Thanks for this one too:)
Me. Not so much when I am at home but when you have to be out in the stores, driving, people just seem to be so rude!
Yeah!! So happy for you:)
