1. Began a "shampoo-less" hair regime two nights ago. I read about it HERE on Simple Mom. I am liking it so far - my normally-limp hair has more body, is less oily, and feels softer than usual. Bonus: the recipes cost only pennies to make, and I already had the ingredients! Baking soda and vinegar are AMAZING! (Don't mix them together on your head though - that could do some damage. The human head wasn't meant to be a test tube for strange chemical reactions - outside OR inside. Follow the instructions on the link.) Anyway, I plan to try this for a while - I'll let you know what I think after a few weeks. I like the idea of using natural (and edible) products on my skin rather than a bunch of funky chemicals. Win, win, win.
2. I have been thinking about and praying for the people of Japan a lot after reading about yesterday's massive earthquake.
5. I have shampooed my carpet 4 times in the past month (once all over, the other times in strategic areas). Have I mentioned how much I love vinegar? Not only can you use it on your salad, on your hair, and on your countertops, but you can also use it on your carpet! Click HERE for the recipe - it's much cheaper than the store-bought carpet shampoo liquid, and I think it cleans just as well (or better).
"And just why," you may ask, "have you shampooed your carpet four times?" Let's just say that if I didn't love my dog and his furry cousins so much, I'd be pulling out a shotgun or building a dog house - I'm not sure which.
