Be an informed consumer of health and beauty products

As I continue my own journey toward cleaner living, I find cosmeticsdatabase  to be an excellent resource. For those of you unfamiliar with it, the rating scale is from 0 to 10 with 0 being the least hazardous to your health.  I invite you to search some of your current health and beauty products.  A word of warning, products that you **think** are safe and "natural" may not be. Try not to "freak out"!  If you do choose to transition to safer products, do so at a manageable pace! And by all means, don't throw all your products in the garbage or down the drain. In September I'll discuss the way to properly dispose of unused beauty products and medications. At this moment, I have a whole collection of said products that need to go to their final resting place.

Birthday week madness

Good Morning,
This is going to be one busy week at our house! Our baby boy turns 9 on Friday, August 6th.  Between parties for friends and family, we'll spend 3 days of this week celebrating him! Gee whiz, is this kid a VIP or what? As a result of all this party planning, my postings this week won't be very lengthy.  I have **some** of the party prep done but plenty more to tackle....wish me luck!  As Arnold would say, "I'll be back"! :)
