I didn't, I swore it was the 1 of July. We get paid on the 1, so I had plans to get a few things taken care while I was out. I kept seeing signs for the 30th, but it didn't click, I thought 'man why are they all wrong? That is so weird.' Then finally I checked my phone and it said it was only the 30th, I was so bummed. Oh well I should be home taking care of Erica anyway.

I can see some saying, 'what about all your rights now as a woman' or 'what about all the technology' and etc,etc,etc.... Well, I am a stay at home, who likes it this way. Honestly I feel that I get less of a chance at life some times because everyone and their mother can hop on a computer and get this, do that,and or learn to do that. I would prefer my life to be more simplistic, I don't like it being so over whelmed with computers, cell phone, TV's, Ipod, etc. I think that this generation is to "now, gimme, gimme, gimme." and they can't just wait 5 minutes to make a PB&J sandwich, it has to be done NOW! that is why I think Erica likes peanut butter on a poon, (spoon).

I wasn't feeing well most of the day and really wanted a nap. About 3 I finally got one. I woke about 4:45 and remembered that I signed the kids up for parents night out at the Y. Because Wes is gone it is free. I had some errends to do, so I desided to go. Don't really have the money right now to do a lot. since I wasn't feeling good I was really craving chicken noodel soup. So that is what I am doing. Eating and sitting in front of a fountian at the Y.

The one thing I get to do a lot of while Weston is gone is BBQ. I love to eat BBQ food and so I had to learn quickly that if I wanted it while Weston was gone I had to make it. When Weston was gone for 6 months in 2008, I was pregnant with Erica and I loved BBQ. We had this tiny little BBQ on our front porch, I looked at it one day and thought to myself "What is so hard about this, I am a good cook, I can BBQ" so that was when I started to have BBQ when ever I wanted! I am proud to say that I can BBQ with the best of them, and I mean it. I can truly say I have had some awful BBQ, and only know 3 men that can BBQ good food. My dad, my husband and Billy Carling. I am sure there are others that can as well, so take no offense if I haven't mentioned you.

Homemade Liquid Laundry Soap- Front or top load machine- best value
4 Cups - hot tap water
1 Fels-Naptha soap bar
1 Cup - Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda*
½ Cup Borax
- Grate bar of soap and add to saucepan with water. Stir continually over medium-low heat until soap dissolves and is melted.
-Fill a 5 gallon bucket half full of hot tap water. Add melted soap, washing soda and Borax. Stir well until all powder is dissolved. Fill bucket to top with more hot water. Stir, cover and let sit overnight to thicken.
-Stir and fill a used, clean, laundry soap dispenser half full with soap and then fill rest of way with water. Shake before each use. (will gel)
-Optional: You can add 10-15 drops of essential oil per 2 gallons. Add once soap has cooled. Ideas: lavender, rosemary, tea tree oil.
-Yield: Liquid soap recipe makes 10 gallons.
-Top Load Machine- 5/8 Cup per load (Approx. 180 loads)
-Front Load Machines- ¼ Cup per load (Approx. 640 loads)
Personal tips. I have found that if you boil the water before you put in the soap it melts faster and you have less sticking to the pot.
As much as I like bloging. I always find something else that needs to be done. House work, kids stuff, me stuff, lazy stuff. In any case I am not much of a writer either, but isn't that the fun of a blog, not having to be perfect.
