I don't want to get up- my ears hurt, & I'm still tired. Lately every day is a struggle to get moving. No motivation. Must. Get. Up. Most days don't truly begin until noon. Shame on me- I should be up with the sun, ready for the day. I'm just not a morning person, never have been. Parenting should be a second shift job. Here I go. Wish me luck. Happy Monday everyone:)

Homemade Laundry Soap

I have decided, after repeatedly switching back and forth, that I prefer to use homemade laundry soap.  Saying this makes it sound complicated and involved.  Trust me when I tell you it is not.  It takes about 15 minutes, and then sits overnight (24 hrs).  That's all. Here's the recipe I use:


I hope you will like it as much as I do.  It's great on bath towels, kids clothes, husband clothes, and I have friends that use it on cloth diapers as well. The best part is that it is so much cheaper than what I was using!
