day off

I’m using up the rest of my vacation days this week (our vacation days all expire June 30) and have big plans for getting things done!  Yesterday I:

  • slept in til 7:30am
  • walked 6 miles
  • did 4 loads of laundry: 2 loads were sheets and our clothes and 2 loads were baby clothes and blankets!  I also learned that baby clothes fresh from the dryer = blazing hot snaps on all those onesies.  Ouch.
  • sorted through some more baby stuff
  • assembled the footstool to our rocking chair  (We picked it up at IKEA this past weekend.)
  • put together the stroller (This was actually really easy once Dave and I got started.  Pictures to come.)
  • picked up some of the mess around the house
  • went up and down the stairs a gajillion times
  • put clean sheets on the bed
Still on the agenda for this week:
  • trimming the bushes
  • sweepering out the car (it’s FILTHY)
  • grocery shopping
  • cleaning the house (sweepering, dusting, bathrooms)
  • reading
I bought Charlie’s Soap Powder for our laundry detergent for all things baby.  It’s all natural, fragrance free, and hypoallergenic.  Once I finish up the current box of laundry detergent, I’ll switch Dave and I’s clothes to this detergent as well.

What kind of laundry detergent do you use?  Liquid or powder?

Don’t forget to vote in the reader recipe poll!

  1. I use liquid as long as it is ‘free’ — no dye, fragrance, etc. I switched us all to this once we had the little guy and I’m a big fan. Though sometimes at my MILs I get a whiff of a fresh load of laundry done with the original tide and it smells SO good.

  2. We use the 7th Generation Liquid detergent. I used to use Tide but switched to 7th gen. Now when I use Tide (rarely), I get a big rash on my stomach. Bad Tide!!! Hope you are having a good couple days off!
