Normative Norwex

Remember in Party Prep, I said more about DD1’s party to come?

Well here it is!!

Her party was for launching her Norwex business.       (FYI: she signed up under our friend, Kristen.     Yeah, the twins’ mama!)

What’s that??      Don’t know what Norwex is??

                              Not the actual product!   Just the box her kit came in!                                   Please notice the clean dishes in the background!

It’s only the best thing since sliced bread!!

Norwex is a company whose products let you clean your house, with just water, and a cloth.         YES!!         It’s true!

When I first heard about Norwex, I was sooo skeptical!!       How in this world can you clean 90% of your house with just a cloth, and water???     HOW??

Well, Norwex is microfiber, with silver inside, so it self purifies.       But not just ANY microfiber!        It is so thin, it’s beyond the industry standard, waaay beyond!       So, you are mechanically cleaning, not chemically cleaning.

With Lysol spray, bleach wipes, etc, you are chemically cleaning.       In other words, you are relying on the chemicals to kill the bacteria.         If you read the label on the wipes, you are supposed to leave them on the surface for 4 minutes!!          Anyone actually do that??       I sure didn’t!!        And then you’re left with all this chemical residue, that some products say you have to clean the counter after.     What???       I’m trying to get it clean in 1 go round, not spray, wait 4 minutes, wipe, than have to clean AGAIN!     No thank you!!

Instead, you dampen the Norwex cloth, and clean only the ONCE!!        Because there are so many fibers per square inch, it picks up 99% of the germs, etc, the first time!!  And no cancer causing chemicals, that you then have to clean off!!        Win/Win!! After you use it, just rinse, and hang to dry.

Norwex Envirocloth, used, rinsed, and hung to dry.

Simple!         (You are recommended to wash them once a week.)

Definitely the way to go!!


I’m signing up to sell it myself!!     So, if ya want to know more, email me.

Oh yeah, 1 more thing, the mop!!

The handle is adjustable to the user.      So, DD1 puts it at full length, for herself, then lowers it all the way down, for PP.        As soon as PP saw it, she grabbed it, and dry mopped the living room!!

slob, humor, Norwex mop,

Isn’t it cute?? And easy for almost-4-year-old-hands to handle!!

YES!!         I officially have trained my replacement!!     No more cleaning for me!!     Woo hoo!!!       Happy dance!!!

Goldie’s Goals

I’m Goldilocks.    

{Okay, yeah, I know my hair isn’t gold.     And I don’t have any locks, just stubble.}    

But, this is my story, and I’m sticking to it.     

I’m looking for the perfect chair gardening stool.

First I tried Papa Bear’s Chair.           (PP’s kitchen seat.)

slob, humor, too tall stool

Too hard!

Too  hard tall!!     (I know!!    How could anything be too tall for me??)      I almost fell off of it, when I tried leaning over to weed.     Not good!


Then I tried Mama Bear’s chair.            (PP’s dish washing stool.)

slob, humor, too short step stool

Too soft!

Too soft short!!        (I couldn’t get up without help, too short!)

Now I’m looking around for Baby Bear’s chair, ya know the one that will be just right???        And I don’t see it anywhere!!


PP is fresh outta more stools.          Whatever am I gonna do??

Total Towels

Ok, so in Charitable Choice, I posted about giving away 7 towels, just yesterday.

Tonight, there were 2 more baskets of laundry to fold.       Guess what the majority of the items were??

If you said towels, you win!

In these 2 loads, there were   14   towels total!  

slob, humor, keeping towels

Keeping these 10.

And we had just given away 7!!         And there were 10 already in the cabinet!!

Total towels we had previously:  31 !!!!         For only 2 adults, and 2 kids!         Me thinks we had waaaay too many towels!

So, we culled out some more:

slob, humor, towels leaving this time

Towels going bye!!

Leaving this go round: 4 towels, 2 hand towels, and 1 washrag.

And 1 baby shirt, that’s too little for PPJr now.

And we still have 20 left…… {towels, not baby shirts.   I’m sure we have way more than 20 baby shirts!}


Oh yeah!       And 1 wash rag that only had a lil ole hole in it, that I helped along on its journey.

                       That was fun, ripping into that!!        I love to destroy stuff!!

                          It wasn’t even rag bag worthy, at that point!!        See ya!

Now, we aren’t suffocating in towels anymore!!        But still have plenty, just in case the leaky skylight floods the bathroom!     (again)

Book Blogger

A new friend: My Favorite Recipes, has nominated me for a new award.       Yipee!!

books-and-coffee

                   Book Blogger Test

Thanks, Favorite!!

Here are the requisite

Rules:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you and add a link to their blog.
  2. Answer the questions asked on this post.
  3. Nominate at least five people to do it also.
  4. Let your nominees know you nominated them.

 

This is something new, and I’m happy to participate!!      You know I love books!!

     Book Memes      Library       Loser          Paperbacks       Bibles

Convinced yet that I love books??

Okay now, on to the questions, please.           Coming right up!

  1.  WHAT ARE YOUR TOP THREE BOOK PET PEEVES?    (The emphasis was theirs, not mine.      Since they were shouting, I don’t think it needs bold too.)

Um, let’s see….. 1. When the ending pages are torn out!!!!      That makes me cry in anger, and frustration!        2. If the book is poorly edited.     Once, the heroine’s name changed halfway thru.      This really happened!       I got all steamed up, ready to write a stern letter to the editor, then…… I read a different book, and my procrastination kicked in, and I never did it.    3. When the writer is boring.    I still try to hang in there, but 3 times in my life, I’ve given up, and quit reading a book.      It pains me, cuz I know it’s not the book’s fault!      But, I do have standards, ya know!!

2. Describe your perfect reading spot.

Pretty much anywhere there’s a seat, light, me and a book!!    Actually, I don’t even require a seat!     I read while walking down the halls, at school!            I’ve even read in the tub!!

3. Tell us Three book confessions.

I think saying I have put down 3 books, without finishing, probably counts as the first one!     I’m ashamed of myself, that I couldn’t power thru!       2. I proofread, as I go.     I hate it when books have too many mistakes.       Fire your editor already!!       3. I binge read, when I find a new author I like.     I will hunt down their next books, like they are food, and I’m starving!

4. When was the last time you cried during a book?

When did I finish reading the last book??    2 days ago?     Of course I cry when something sad happens!       Those people are real!!      DD1 does too.      When either of us are crying, and we ask, “What’s wrong?”  All the other has to do, is say “Reading, or book.”        And we understand.

5. How many books are on your bedside table?

Here: I’ll show you.

Answer: 10.    2 Bibles, 2 Christian romances, a Strong Willed Child workbook, and 5 kids’ books.

6. What’s your favorite snack to eat while you’re reading?

Food, pretty much!     Brownies top the list, naturally.       And peach Fanta, if I have some.

7. Name Three books you would recommend to Everyone.

Bible- #1, hands down.        Anne of Green Gables.       {This is so hard!!}        5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman.

8.  Show us a picture of your favorite bookcase , or a bookshelf.

Well, since I moved, and got rid of all my bookcases, apparently my nightstand is it!

slob, humor, books on nightstand

My nightstand is now my new bookshelf.

9. Describe how much books mean to you in just three words.

Oh, wow, another toughie.       Let’s see if I can do this.

Giving me life.       (The Bible literally gives me life, by bringing me to Jesus Christ.     Other books give life to my mind.)

Now another rough part: Nominating just 5 people!!

  1. Susie        A wonderful friend!
  2. Geekmama
  3. Creative Crafts
  4. Beauty Beyond Bones    This girl is seriously wonderful!
  5. Koolaid Mama

Thanks again, Favorite!     Go check out this Chocolate Cake recipe of hers!!

 

Party Prep

DD1 had a party-!

Party prep was on my mind!     I didn’t do all the cleaning, just my share.

My contribution to the clean up.

 

I cleaned the kitchen, including de-cluttering the counter tops some.

Swept, spot mopped.

Look, Ma!    Empty sinks!!

slob, humor, empty clean sinks!
Doubly done!

Swept living room after she cleaned up.

So clear!      So clean!       So classy!

Swept her room.

Swept my room.

Swept the porch, after she did some de-cluttering.

Dirty:

 

Clean:

I swept so hard on the porch, I literally snapped off the broom handle, inside the broom head!

Buh-bye broom!

Went thru some boxes.

Scrubbed toilet.     No pix, you’re welcome!

 

Whew!      So tired!!        Brownie, and Coke time!!         (Or mango soda, whatever’s in the fridge.)

 

More about the actual party later!!
