She slept beautifully for my daughter last night after staying up all day for Grandma yesterday. I have the virus the kids had last week and now I am not sleeping much myself. I felt progressively worse yesterday slept for 2 hours when everyone arrived home and now I am coughing. I canceled a doctors appointment for tomorrow and need to reschedule. Not the right kind of doctor for a cold unfortunately. The upside is my daughter has the next two days off from work so I should be able to get a little more rest.
I would like to sort through some clothing to donate today I started a box some time ago and placed it in my closet to clean out as I go. Did not work for me I put a few things in and it's been sitting there ever since. It's small so I should be able to fill it easily and have my husband put it in the car. That's all I feel up to. The older kids will be home in hour and a half so I am just relaxing now and enjoyi... less

I watered my shrubs this morning, washed & hung out 2 loads of laundry. Worked an hour at home/online, and will do 2 more hours tonight. I will clean up the house a bit as well this afternoon. Probably dust, run the vacuum and steam mop the kitchen. I also need to go renew my library card, but I think I will do that on my way home from work one evening to save gas, instead of making a special trip out today.
For dinner we need to use up some leftover pot roast, so I am thinking I will heat that up in the crock pot with some different seasonings, so we don't have to turn the oven on & warm up the house too much. Probably make mashed potatoes for the side. less

What other symtptoms and ailments is lavender used for and what are it's side effects?
If you use lavender oils, supplements or grow it to use it, share your knowledge and experience, please. I have long used for aromatherapy, with oil for massaging and I am interested to hear what else is out there. less

For Mothers' Day a few years ago, my daughter bought me a scrub board. Does she know me, or what? I have often done laundry by hand just for the fun of it (and to save a few pennies). I bought a wringer washer from my brother-in-law that is used regularly. It saves a lot of water, electricity and de...
