el fin del semestre...casi

Yesterday I was so productive, I just have to document how much I can really get done in one afternoon/evening:

- completed my 11 mile run so I wouldn't have to do it today
- concocted various homemade cleaners
- attempted my first batch of homemade laundry soap [ I may have failed...we'll see... ] 
- washed and put away the [ piles upon piles of ] dishes [ oh, the joy of not having a dishwasher! ]
- cleaned the bathroom
- scrubbed all the mold and mildew [ I know, EWW...] off of the walls and ceiling of said bathroom
- washed, folded AND put away the [ piles upon piles of ] laundry
- took out the trash [ a.k.a. walked across the church parking lot and flung our trash bags into the church's dumpster - don't worry, as church home tenants we're allowed to do that ]
- vacuumed up about 3419087324 spiders and their [ not so ] little webs from our walls and ceilings

I'm so domestic.

Now today is a boring BORING day of studying for finals next week...yikers

Please pray that I don't lose my mind over the next seven days.



  1. ok, I commented on this earlier but apparently it didn't take! grr.
    Well, earlier I asked where you got your information for making your laundry detergent? I've been looking for some info on that :)
    I'll be praying for you this week!
    Love ya!

  2. I got the "recipe" from Jenny Gouveia's FB or blog...can't remember which one. Here's the link: http://www.thefamilyhomestead.com/laundrysoap

    Mine kind of got messed up but I'm not exactly sure why. I think I didn't heat the soap, borax powder and wash soap long enough because it coagulated and separated from the water after the 24 hours. I might just try to heat it again and see if that fixes the problem.

    Thanks for the prayers! Love you too!!!
