On Black Friday we went to Dull’s to pick out our Christmas tree. Their trees and prices are fantastic.
Apparently everyone decided to get their tree that day, as well! LOL
When it was finally our turn, we handed our tree off to have all the loose needles shaken off and to be wrapped up, ready to take home.
In the meantime, we decided to ride the horse wagon. Everyone was so excited to ride this year.
Unfortunately this year it wasn’t near as much fun. The driver left us sitting there for an insanely long time – I was actually ready to request a refund when he finally ambled back. Then when we thought we were finally going to get started, he sent the kid that was with him after a coat. Now, bear in mind that before the guy wondered off he gave instructions to the kid to put his coat on which the kid blissfully ignored. The same kid then attemped to tell me how to parent my kids – the same kids who were incredibly restless because they were being kept waiting and waiting and waiting. Yeah, I didn’t take kindly to that any more than when the kid whipped out a slingshot that he proceeded to use as we were riding. I’m sorry to say that I doubt we’ll do it next year.
Our tree is great, as always. We still love the tree farm and will continue to get our trees there as we’ve done for years now as well as recommending them to everyone.
As I mentioned in a previous post, GREENBODY deodorant is very effective, unlike many other natural deodorants I have tried.
As also stated on that post, I had some really really bad reactions to the ones containing baking soda.
Luckily, Kristen at GREENBODY decided to make a soda free version of her fantastic deodorants. I like to think she created it just for me but I think she just had the foresight to know that there were a few who would be unable to use her awesome products otherwise.
Honestly the only real complaint I have is that there’s only the one scent.
Not only did it work well without the baking soda, I even managed to give it quite the run of two days in a row of not showering. It still worked! That’s a claim I couldn’t make of the others I tried. And that’s the longest anyone should really be without a shower.
I cannot emphasize enough just how great GREENBODY deodorants are. If you haven’t tried any of these yet, what are you waiting for?
Disclosure: I reviewed this product, purchased with my own money, and received no compensation for this review.
Happy Monday. How was your weekend? Ours was somewhat busy. We took an impromptu expedition to the Louisville area looking for trains.
The best part of all was what they’re doing with the old train bridge. It’s become a walking bridge.
The Indiana side isn’t open yet but we got to walk across to the Indiana entrance/exit.
Opinions welcome. The two fifth grade classes have two rats they are “experimenting” on. They are both getting the same food which seems to be rice, veggies, fruits, oats… no mention of rat kibble which concerned me but nothing compared to the drinks they’re being given. One rat is being given sugar water and the other is being given milk. The milk drinking rat is getting “big and strong” while the one drinking sugar water is not.
Most rats, like most animals, are lactose intolerant. Most likely the rat drinking the milk is bloated, not at all healthy.
When I voiced my concern to our daughter, I was bet with indignant cries of “but she’s done it before! ”
I’m appalled that these rats are being treated thus. I don’t think I’m overreacting by wanting to express this at school tomorrow.
