The Bathroom Challenge

Accountability ~ To account for one's actions.



I HATE, no I LOATH having to clean the Superboy's (they are NOT Super when they pee on a seat!) bathroom. I know that compared to most boy's bathrooms theirs is clean. Because I clean it almost everyday!

My Super Cleaning Schedule



I try very hard to make every Saturday & Sunday a 'cleaning rest day.'

Organic Unrefined Virgin Coconut Oil is the NEW BLACK!

Recipes for Beauty

Wonderful natural & non-toxic recipes can be made right in your own kitchen.



I learned years ago that homemade beauty products are the treatments of choice for people (like me) with sensitive skin because they are free of artificial dyes, fragrances, and preservatives that can cause irritation. Since you control exactly what goes into your products, you can be sure that only fresh organic ingredients touch your skin & hair (o:…
