It IS almost July... and I am still here! While I have enjoyed staying somewhat up-to-date on some of my favorite blogs to read, very obviously I have not been anything close to up-to-date on this blog that I actually write (at least in theory). I have no grand excuses, really, apart from the 10 days I was away from computers during our vacation earlier this month. My Dad took us on a weeklong Alaskan cruise, which was surprisingly relaxing. Perhaps more on that another time. I suppose the real reason I haven't written much is that so much of my verbal processing has been done out loud lately. I am 25 weeks pregnant (due October 12th) and the father-to-be and I have been doing a lot of talking, which is a very good thing, I think. BUT, I'm beginning to feel a little lazy, and like I probably should be writing some things down somewhere, so I remember what all of this is like. We are trying hard not to take for granted that a second child will be coming right along after this one... AND I read this great post through a link on the Non-Consumer Advocate, and needed a place to put it. So here it is. Three cheers for baking soda and vinegar. And water - how come no one advocating for "all natural" cleaning products remembers what a great solvent water can be in so many situations?
