My Laundry Schedule

One of the things that I look forward to on Mondays is beginning my weekly laundry routine.  I haven't always enjoyed this, until I came up with a schedule.  Here it is:

Monday:       Towels/Kitchen Linens

Tuesday:      Lights (socks, undershirts)
                    Gentle Lights (Usually our dress clothes)

Wednesday:  Handwashables (Washed in sink)

Thursday:     Gentle Darks (Dress clothes)
                    Darks (jeans, casuals)
Friday:          Bed Linens

Some days I may only have a couple articles of a certain load to wash, so I skip it until the next week to save on water and energy.  If I have anything leftover that didn't get washed due to time restraints, I wash it the next day, or on Saturday.  I do not wash on Sunday as I try to rest more on that day (although I do like to organize on Sundays).  

Do you have a laundry schedule?  Do you wash all in one day, or certain days?

Belated Birthday Celebration

Today we celebrated mine and my brother-in-law's birthday.  Our birthdays were February 10th, and we married twins, isn't that neat?  

I absolutely love the gifts that were given to me by my family!  My sister-in-law is a Thirty-One Gifts consultant and this was one of my gifts:

I just love it!  It's a Skirt Purse.  The Patten, Mod Dot, actually comes off and I can switch it out with another "skirt!"  All weekend I've been threatening to "steal" my sister-in-law's purse....boy did they surprise me with my very own!

Update on My Uncle

I just got an e-mail from my Uncle Bill on my Uncle Gary.  

Here is what he wrote:

"He had mini-stroke this morning, found spot on one lung, doing bone scan tomorrow as they think cancer in bones.  Looking bad Melissa."

Please Pray, y'all! 

Praise and Prayer Request

Praise:  My friend that had a miscarriage is expecting again.  She just went in for a check-up and the baby is doing great!  She is over 8 weeks along and the baby's heart beat is so strong!  Thank you for praying for my friend.  Please continue praying for her, as I am sure her worries are not over.

Prayer request:  Please pray for my Uncle Gary (my dad's brother).  It looks as though he may have Pancreatic Cancer; they are still unsure.  They will have results from a biopsy on Monday as well as having more MRI's ran.  This afternoon my uncle was taken by ambulance to the ER because he could not move his left leg, or grip with his left hand.  They have ruled out a stroke.  

Please, please pray for my uncle.  I love him very much and I just wish I could be there during this (he is in Kentucky).

When Your Youngest Sister Goes to College....

it's a true reality check!  Yes, my youngest sister is to begin her college career this coming Fall.  This evening she is signing to play college softball in Alabama.  While I am very proud of her hard work in school and in a sport she loves, my baby sister is growing up!  

I clearly remember when she was born.  I was seven and had no idea what I was going to say to this tiny little person.  Now, there are a ton of things I wish I could say...and very little I've actually said (in light of it all).  I just pray God's wisdom and protection over her every step.   I pray that she would put God's will first in her life and let Him guide her.

I love you, Michelle!

Southern Living at Home

Recently, I became a Southern Living at Home consultant.  I absolutely LOVE Southern Living at Home products.  It is my dream to quit my public job and stay at home with my children, to raise them and train them, and make homemaking a top priority.

However, our income needs to grow a little more before that dream can become a reality.  Enter:  Southern Living at Home.  I instantly fell in love with SLAH while admiring a beautiful casserole dish at my in-law's.  While no one was looking, I flipped it over to see what company produced it (it was empty, no worries) and there it was "Southern Living at Home."  November of the next year, I decided after talking it over with my husband, to become a consultant.  

I LOVE IT!  I love selling great products that I love and others love as well.  I feel at ease and very comfortable talking about and sharing such a great, quality product that lives up to it's beauty.

If you would like to know more about what I do, or would be interested in being a hostess and earning free product for your home....please let me know.  I'd love to share it with you!
