It never ends :)

Once I get caught up it seems like things are back at the beginning again. I've been going back and forth trying to find an affordable environmental friendly laundry detergent and haven't had much luck until recently.

After ordering my new cloth diapers I knew I needed a special detergent (I messed up my last set of cloth diapers by using a not so great detergent). The Bungenius detergent seemed expensive so I ended up ordering some Charlie's Soap online.

I love it!!

It has worked wonderfully and we've had no diaper rashes from the cloth diapers as some others have reported. Now I am currently saving up for this.

We do around one load of laundry a day at my house. It seems that is the only way I can stop on top of the laundry here. This pail should last us over 2 1/2 years. That's around $44 a year for laundry detergent.... or $3.67 a month... :)

This is a great price for environmentally friendly laundry detergent.

And baby makes.... 4

It's been quite a while since my last post... ok 8 months. More than quite a while. But to be fair, I've been a busy lady :)

In January I took a position as a freelance writer for a local online newspaper. I wrote columns about all things regarding being a mommy. Two weeks ago due to budget cuts the mommy column was axed. This means that I've now got more time to go back to my blog and writing about whatever suits my fancy.

I also spent the entire summer sick... I mean sick as a dog sick. With my first little one I never experienced any sickness. With the new little one on the way I've had more sickness than I ever thought possible. But thank goodness the sickness is behind me now as I head into my third trimester.

And we've begun getting things ready for another lady to make her way into our family :)

Have you ever gotten that scared feeling in the pit of your stomach? I mean that really scared sinking feeling that makes you feel scared in a way that you've never felt before. That use to be a regular feeling for me. I can remember when I was little and my whole world revolved around being scared (as much a child's can understand fear). I use to be to scared to go to sleep some nights.

That's how my life use to be... in one word: scared.

Now my life is described by a new word: peace.

And I'm so glad it is! Jesus has secured my future and not allowed that feeling of fear in my life anymore. Now, I still have moments when I take my eyes off of Jesus and feel scared about trivial things, but that pit in my stomach fear is no more!

There is nothing that I fear anymore. The enemy has no hold over me. My future is secure!! What else matters?

"I have said these things to you, that in my you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world." John 16:33

So we've been sick....

It seems that sickness has made its way through our house. And did I mention that I HATE being sick or anyone being sick for that matter.

2 weeks ago my little one had it. Last week 2 sets of neighbors had it and this week me and my hubby have it.

Hopefully we be back to full swing by the beginning of next week. We've got a full week ahead of us :)

Dinner this week

We are still cleaning out the pantry this week :)

Monday - Tacos
Tuesday - Eggs and Toast
Wednesday - Mac and Cheese
Thursday - Sausage, Rice, Cream of Mushrooms
Friday - Waffles and Bacon
Saturday - Chicken Sandwiches

My little one tends to be a little picky and I'm ok with her eating something different as long as it is healthy. What we tend to do is to put whatever we are having on her plate (so she gets exposed to it more) and in addition give her something that she likes that is healthy, usually some types of beans and sweet potatoes.
