Spring Cleaning Made Easier

Have you started spring cleaning?!

I would love to tell you I'm done.....

I'm not.

It's a bit overwhelming, huh?

Especially with all the nice weather.

Did you know that nice weather makes my spring cleaning a little harder?

Yep.  And not because I want to be outside instead of in. (Although, that's true too.)

It's because that nice weather calls my kids outside for extra long periods of time to get extra grubby and dirty.  I then end up with dirty foot prints on my recently mopped floors or sinks smeared with streaks of mud in the bowl and countertop.

That's just the way it is.

So why is the title of this post 'Spring Cleaning Made EASIER'?

Because by using Shaklee cleaners, I've essentially taken all the guess work out of my cleaning.

Did I just throw ya?  Are you thinking.... 'Wait a minute!  I thought the great thing about using Shaklee cleaners was all about them being non-toxic and good for the environment!'

It is.  And that's the whole reason I started using them.

Now...... That's just a huge bonus.

I have my life simplified by only having four cleaners for the surfaces in my home.  Yep.  Four.

Here's my thought process for cleaning.......

So..... my 'nerd' side came out on this one, but you get the idea, right?

And, did you also notice WATER is one of my main cleaners?  I use it all the time to wipe down counters, cabinets, sinks, spots on the floor.... just about anywhere.

However, water does very little to help me clean up oil or grease type messes.  That's when I reach for my Basic H2.  And, it's safe on all the surfaces around my house.

I use it to mop my floors and clean up all the tracks my kids leave behind.
We use it to clean our vehicles.
and in....
In our bathrooms.

I also use it to clean glass and mirrors, baseboards, marks on walls and doors, stainless steel appliances - anywhere I need to clean!  Basic H works well and it works fast so I can get on with my day.

Pretty simple, right?  

Want some for yourself?  Order Basic H2 here.

Another Milestone for Madi

Today marks another milestone for little Miss Madi!

Chemo ended about 5 months ago.  Now that cold and flu season are winding down, we are hoping to finish her IVIG treatments this month.

This is pretty major!


Because if her immune system is working well enough on its own, and she no longer needs to receive IVIG......   she no longer has a need for her port!!

That's right!  No more port means no more restrictions and fewer worries.  Our little girl can really be a normal kid.  (Well, as normal as the rest of the family, anyway.)

She's already had blood drawn from her arm a couple of times to make sure she can do that.  (The girl has some great veins!)  So, no worries there!

So, either in May or June we will have some extra blood work done to see how her little body is doing on its own.  From there, we will be able to schedule her appointment to remove the port and get on with life.

Timing is perfect with summer just around the corner, too!

Say a few extra prayers for us as we see how the next couple of months go.  I'll be keeping you all posted!

Happy Easter (a little early)

The long weekend is coming at me quickly, and I'm really not sure I'm ready!!  Ah, the story of my life!

Here are just a couple of things I've seen around the internet that would be ideal for our family to do to get ready for Sunday.

Bunny Butt Cookies (by Pillsbury)

Kings Hawaiian Rolls Copy Cat Recipe (by Fabulessly Frugal)

We'll be doing eggs (I think), but I'm pretty sure they won't look anything like these at Family Sponge.  Beautiful!

Sara at has gathered 20 different egg dying ideas.  We should be able to do at least one of these, right?!

We won't be giving the kids as much candy as usual this year, so that will be a little different for them.  (Us too, since we usually get at least a little for ourselves.)  Maybe we'll just go do something fun or get some summer fun things that we need anyway.

Have a wonderful Easter Weekend, everyone!  And safe travels to any of you traveling!
