Our weekend started off with a bang. Since we don’t celebrate Halloween, we decided to christen our new rec room with a movie for the whole family on Friday night. We all crowded in there and I surprised the kids with 2 huge bags of candy. We very rarely buy candy so when I announced that they could eat all they wanted there was a collective outcry of jubilation.
And within about 30 minutes there was a pile of teeny candy wrappers on the coffee table that would eventually challenge Mt Everest in height.
The theme of the night: Laughter with a Sugar High.
The next morning I had planned to work on filling etsy orders and help the boys clean out their closet. But when I went into my bathroom to get dressed for the day and started the daily search for my favorite essential oils I broke under the pressure. Two hours later I emerged from the bathroom with reorganized oils and a clean bathroom.
While I worked I could hear the kids calling out, “Where’s MOM?! I can’t find her!” But my drive to get that bathroom in ship shape overshadowed my drive to help them find their one lost shoe or figure out where the last of the candy went.
I took all of the whole bottles (that the oils come in) off the shelves and organized them in a drawer that was empty. Can you believe I actually have empty drawers in my bathroom? I think I deserve some kind of award for that. Anyway, then I refilled my diluted rollon bottles and organized them on my shelves by the way they are used instead of alphabetical, which is how they were before. And I must say that even though I am only 2 days into this new system, it’s working much better.
It will make it much easier for the kids to find oils when they need them. Not that they don’t know the alphabet, but they don’t necessarily know what oils to use if I am not there to make suggestions. This way they at least have an idea what to try when they can’t sleep or feel a cold coming on.
Speaking of oils….if you don’t know….I am having a romance with Thieves. As I get ready for winter I am stocking up. We love the cleaner and diffusing it all winter, but I have now discovered their lozenges which, in my humble opinion, are better than cough drops and throat soothers and any number of hard candy combined. I have been using them even when I am well because they make my breath nice and, if I am being completely honest, they keep me awake during church.
I am sorry to say that I have a slight issue with staying awake during a long service and need something in my mouth to keep me from the strong temptation to check my email or worse, play a game. Candy Crush and I are going to have to break up anyway if I can’t get past this level.
I love these lozenges so much that I am sending a bag of them to everyone that joins Young Living through me this month with a Premium Starter Kit or Premium Starter Kit with Thieves. PLUS I am still sending you my favorite reference book. Y’all….don’t wait. You want this for the winter months!
