So here I am 22 weeks pregnant. Soon to be moving to another state. According to the stressful life events list, moving is listed as the 32nd most stressful event in life and pregnancy is number 12. Add to that not having a for sure job lined up, having to drive 2 days with a four year old and dog, and pulling a trailer while my husband is in front of me with a giant truck. Ahhhhhh Fun! And we just did this a year and a half ago! We moved from Arizona to Louisiana and now we are moving to Colorado. Yes we may be crazy for doing this again so soon. Louisiana just does not suit us. Visiting is fine but living here, no thanks.
I think I am handling the stress ok so far. I still have a ton of stuff to get into the truck and then I need to clean the house. I am scared to move again but excited and happy to go somewhere I think I will actually enjoy. Not to say I didn't enjoy some things about Louisiana. There are a lot of good things about it but it's just not for us. Wish me luck and pray I don't loose my mind!
This pregnancy has been interestingly different from my first one. I am 21 weeks but I feel as if I'm 30. My belly just popped out majorly about 2 weeks ago. It just came out of nowhere! I am already getting indigestion, heartburn and running out of breath doing simple things. On top of those things I have an umbilical hernia sticking out making my belly look not so cute. Plus it hurts sometimes but I have to wait to get it fixed till after the baby comes. I found this great belly support band on ebay. It was $9.99! I LOVE this thing! It makes my bump and hernia feel so much better. I almost bought one of these on amazon for $50! So glad I checked out ebay.
I'm all about natural, non toxic cleaning products. So I was excited when I got the chance to review Flushy, Trashy and Sinky from Natural House. Natural House makes natural household cleaning products. The names are fun and they tell you what they clean. The cleaners are phosphate free, eco-friendly, non-toxic and biodegradable. The cleaners work by using probiotics that break down oil, dirt, fats, food scraps, and grease. After your done cleaning the probiotics continue to work!
The first cleaner I tried was Sinky. You throw the little packet into your drain, let some water run over it and let the magic begin. Sinky begins foaming as soon as water hits it. I love seeing the foam because to me it means it's working. I really like the way it smells too. Very earthy and clean. After the foaming action was done I took a sniff of my sink and it did smell better. My sink is always stinky and gross but this made it smell almost pleasant!
On to Flushy which is my favorite. You just toss the packet into the toilet and let it sit for 10 seconds. I let it sit a little longer because my toilet is gross. I don't know if it's because we have a septic system or the type of water we have but it gets dirty really fast. The water turned blue and I started scrubbing. It cleaned really well. Better then some of the other cleaners I have. I was very happy with it and I love that once it goes to the septic it will continue to eat the "bad" stuff.
I sprayed Trashy into my much neglected trash can. I hoped it would miraculously make all the nasty stuff disappear but it did not. It is actually a deodorizer and as that it works fantastic. I love the smell! It's a fresh wintergreen scent and it really helps with nasty odors.
So overall I am very happy with these products and will definitely be buying more in the future. They work great and are completely non-toxic! You gotta love that!
