I experimented a little, but my favorite carpet cleaner homemade solution is simply super hot water, a small sprinkle of natural laundry soap across the carpet and a little bit of essential oils in the tank to add a fresh smell.
I can’t rave enough about this recipe. It checks all the boxes. It could not be easier and you probably have all 3 ingredients in your house already.
When I first started using Castile soap I almost quit. I kept reading articles about how it was a wonder product that would cure everything. Clean your house, cure your acne, give you thick luscious hair and kill weeds naturally.
When I felt like it wasn’t living up to the hype with some of these claims I figured it was a silly product. But I am glad I kept with it. Really glad!
Have you ever heard the term mom stuck? Until recently I had not either. The way it was explained to me made so much sense though. Simply put, Mom stuck is that feeling that Stay at home moms get when you just feel the weight of repetition.
So in the interest of trying to keep ourselves healthy at home so we can take care of our families to the best of our abilities take a look at the list. I know better than anyone how easy it is to put yourself last. Please try and take little bits of time to protect your brain and your body
The purpose of a gift is to either show appreciation or celebrate an event. Just remember that whatever you give them is meant to make them feel special and cared for. Try your hardest to make that happen for them.
The other thing that I have realized over time is that giving back doesn’t need to be defined purely by donations and volunteering. Giving back is also about being a good person and giving your energy to people around you.

This was always my go to. Long day? Hot Bath. Needed a minute alone? Hot shower. Want to feel motivated? Ice Cold Shower. Favorite feeling in the world? Diving into a cold lake. I always pull towards water for help physically and to change my state of mind. It just wasn’t something I was aware of or really thought about.
Slowly over the years I’ve changed a few things to help my comfort level and feel a bit better about my every day life. The truth is I can only do so much. My kids are always going to eat Mcdonald’s. I’m probably always going to buy hot dogs for convenience. I’m not perfect and never will be. These are quick changes I made and you can too!
When it comes to chores I try to get them to help with everything they are able to. Realistically there are some weeks that I just don’t have the energy to fight with the whining and/or patiently help them do the chore and then redo it afterwards when they aren’t looking. Some weeks I just do it all myself. But the more I get them to do, the easier things become in the long run and I hope that I’m raising capable little children that will continue to do these chores after they’ve moved out on their own.
