Things I love and then some…..

I guess I should start off with something that I don’t love. Please don’t waste your money on this
something I hate
It didn’t clean my shower as it stated it would. There was about three warnings on the package that the contents were highly toxic, but I’ve used the scrubbing bubbles before, no worries. Big mistake. I got an instant headache. I used THREE of the pads and my shower was still not clean.

So this came to the rescue
more stuff I love
I can’t same enough good things about Clorox Greenworks. It seems to work on everything, it is dilutable and it isn’t toxic. Plus it smells fantastic. And No Clorox isn’t paying me to say that. (Side note: If someone from Clorox is reading I would love for you to pay me so I can say wonderful things about your Greenworks products. I can work it into conversations, blog posts, heck I would tell all about it when I get the floor at the PTA meetings…seriously, call me) I highly recommend Greenworks if you are looking for an all purpose cleaner. It really cleaned up my tile shower wonderfully.

I also can’t say enough good things about this
something I love It has brought the coffee back to my mornings. I am in love. If I could marry this I would and make sweet little vanilla babies with it. But I can’t. I think hubby would be jealous. A little splash of this, some milk and my coffee and I am good to go all morning with any of the stuff the girls try to put past me before they head out the door.

But last night, I don’t know if it was the stress of the first day of school, rude 7th graders at the volleyball game, PMS or what, but I really loved this
one of my fave things And I don’t drink. Really, I can’t think of the last time I drank anything. Now I have forced my child to drink an energy drink that may or may not have had alcohol in it, (Who would put alcohol in an energy drink?!!?) that was left at the cottage last year by some people who stayed there. But that is for another post. I don’t see a trend, I am not jonesing for one now….but if I drink a few or twelve wine coolers now and again I don’t see the harm.

But you are probably here to see these
Chicken walking to school
Chicken's 1st day of 5th grade
Giggles 1st day of 8th grade
Giggles 1st day B&W Chicken walking to her final year of elementary school. Giggles getting ready to leave for her last year of Middle School. I am sure you are wondering where the Giggles photos are of her walking away. Well I am a sucker good mom and I drove her so she wouldn’t be late. Make-up application and hair straightening is not something you can rush people.

Well I would like to say that I got a lot accomplished today but after getting fumed out of my upstairs and this blasted headache I did not. There is always tomorrow I guess. At least there was peaceful silence all day long. Well that is until I started yelling at the dog because he left me a present upstairs in the hallway. UGH!

If you have kiddos that started school how did your first day go?

  1. I never trusted those scrubbing bubbles. Who keeps them honest and working hard if you don’t have to?

    Isn’t that GreenWorks stuff fab?!

    I hope your headache goes away soon. Maybe you need chocolate to help take the pain away. ;^)

    The girls are adorable… even if they were mean to me. :p


  2. Oh yeah. N for nose. huh. I was just uh… seeing if you were on your toes. Yeah. 🙂 hehe, oops… oh well lol now I have two I guess..

  3. I’m one of those weirdos that makes all my cleaning stuff myself because it’s cheap AND non-toxic but I’m really tempted to try the GreenWorks.My homemade stuff…it works great but I suspect I have to put a little more elbow grease into it than something w/ a little more kick to it.

    (So, if someone from Clorox IS reading, you should totally get some sort of kickback because I’m at least considering buying it 😉 )

  4. I am not a fan of Scrubbing Bubbles either. Thanks for the tip about the GreenWorks~I will have to try it.

  5. Well you know how our first day went!

    I haven’t tried the Green Works stuff, but I did buy some Method cleaner from Tar-zhay. It was GREAT.

  6. okay… so where can I get some of that Vanilla syrup, and how much is it?? 🙂

    Your daughters are bEAUtiful!! I’ll bet you are considering locking the older one up for a few years. I keep thinking that maybe it is better to have a ugly duckling during the high school years, and then she can turn into a swan later??

  7. I’ve seen Greenworks in the store but haven’t tried it yet. I probably will now though. You have quite a way with describing things you like. 🙂

  8. Love your banner picture! Is that you? It does resemble you enough!

  9. Yay! She found a book bag! ;op

    Dobby starts college on the 2nd, I’m not sure how I feel about it other than happy that I’ll have ‘alone’ time again…(she’s not moving out to go to college…in fact, I can’t get rid of her! lol)

  10. No Mr. Clean sponge?

    The girls look wonderful!
