All thieves, all the places, all day, every day!

My Helper

Zeus, our German Shepherd, loves water. He loves to drink a lot of it, and play in it. We have a small kid pool in the backyard that he loves to splash in. And if you use the hose for anything, he’s right there, trying to get the water! 😂

Because he loves the water, when I try to clean the tub in the bathroom, he’s right there. He knows that I will turn the water on at some point, and while I’m cleaning the tub,  he’s licking the water on the tub.

It’s for this reason that I am so glad that I use a plant-based cleaner. I use Thieves Household Cleaner from Young Living to clean my whole house. I love knowing that when he’s there licking at the tub while I’m cleaning, there are no yucky things in the product I’m using that can harm him. It’s safe, and it smells amazing!

Does your dog “help” you clean?

Back To School

It’s August. August usually means kids are heading back to school soon, and moms and dads are doing school shopping.

This is the first year, in forever, it seems, that I don’t have to do school shopping. Our “kids in school” days are done. Am I sad? Maybe, just a bit. It is, after all, the beginning of a new chapter in our lives. But, honestly, once kids get to high school, school shopping is not as fun as when they were younger. And if they wear uniforms, which mine did, it’s even less fun, lol.

Not having kids in school makes things a little easier, actually. No tuition to pay, first off. No early mornings, no lunches to make, no schedule. It’s kind of nice!

It also means more time for Adam and I to hit the slopes this winter! Looking forward to that!

For those of you doing the school shopping, enjoy! Get it done early. Don’t forget to stock up on your oily essentials for the school year as well. I suggest, Thieves, lots of thieves! Thieves essential oil, Thieves Spray, Thieves Hand Purifier, Thieves Household Cleaner. You really can’t go wrong starting the school year with a supply of everything Thieves! Don’t have any? I can help with that! Just give a holler!

Enjoy what is left of summer, making memories with your kids. 😊


It’s August!

It’s Done

Our new garage is done! We love it!!

Yes, this project took longer than we thought. But, we had lots of delays. We waited for dry weather during a very rainy May. We waited on the cement crew each time we needed cement work done. We waited on the inspectors. We waited for a very busy framing crew to be able to get to our job. I went through a whole lot of Stress Away essential oil during this project!

But, the delays were worth it because now we have a much bigger garage that we can actually park in!

It’s so awesome to be able to let the dogs out without having to walk outside. It’s awesome to have an overhead door on the back side of the garage. It’s awesome to have a new patio. It’s awesome to have space to move and work in the garage, and have big shelves to store so much on. It’s just awesome!!!

Last Day

When I bought my starter kit of oils a few years ago, I really had no idea how much they would change things! I literally grab for these oils to help me support all of my body systems. It’s amazing! Knowing I’m supporting my body with these oils and not with products full of questionable ingredients, makes me feel good about how I am taking charge of my wellness.

Normally, the Premium Starter kit with the Dew Drop diffuser and 11 bottles of oils is $160. This is already an amazing deal since the value of what’s inside the kit is over $300. But through today, July 20, 2018, you can get the Premium Starter kit with the Dew Drop diffuser, a second Dew Drop diffuser, and 13 bottles of oils, all for $198!! What??!!!?? This is an incredible deal!

When you jump on this awesome deal, you not only get all the oily goodness, you also get my help and support, as well as a community of other oilers where you can get even more support. No one ever walks this oily journey alone. I would love to show you how to support your wellness with these awesome bottles of plant sauce! Are you ready?

Pool Days

Our pool days are over. Yep. No more pool at our house.

We had decided over Memorial Day weekend to replace the pool. Our above-ground pool was a rusty mess, with actual holes in the walls. So, Adam and I took it down.

We went shopping for a new pool and placed an order for the same size pool as we had just taken down. They told us it would take 2 weeks, possibly three, for the new pool to arrive at the store. We waited just over a month, and during that time, we had tried to contact people on the list of installers we were given from the store. People just don’t call you back! We did some serious re-thinking. We were gonna have to spend a considerable amount of money to re-do the electrical for the filter. And we had already run into a few extra things to pay for in our garage project. Plus, we looked at how much the pool would actually get used after spending so much extra money. The extra wait time for the pool to arrive, and not being able to find an installer, just kind of cemented the decision for us.

So, knowing that our receipt said “all sales final”, we called to cancel the pool anyway, and asked for a refund. Tim explained our reasons on the phone for cancelling, and told them he would stop in the next day to pick up our money. A few hours later, the manager called. I answered the phone. He asked me if I was aware that my husband had cancelled the pool. lol Yes, I was sitting in the same room when he made the call. The manager mentioned that Tim had said we were having trouble getting an installer to call back. Then he told me that he keeps a short list of names in his back pocket, and he could give me one of those names if we didn’t cancel our order. Well, that made me mad! How do you decide who gets names off this secret list?

I told him no, we were going ahead with cancelling the pool. He said that the store staff didn’t have the authority to write a check for us, and that they didn’t have that much cash to give our refund in cash. So, he told me that the owner would bring a check down to that store the next time he came down. I asked if the owner could just put the check in the mail for us, and the manager assured me he would tell the owner.

When a week had gone by, and we still had not received a check, we stopped in at the store to see if it was there. The lady working behind the counter asked if she could help us, and we told here why we were there. I told her that the manager had told me on the phone that the owner would issue a refund and we had not received it yet, and we were wondering if the check was at the store. She went back to get the manager, and, after a couple of minutes, they both came back out to the counter. She told me that “no one told you on the phone that the owner would issue a refund”. What??!!?? I asked her if she was calling me a liar, and she said yes!!!!!!! I guess I pulled that phone conversation with the manager out of my butt! She said they had just talked to the owner and he would put our check in the mail. So glad to not have to deal with those people again! Our check arrived in the mail a few days later.

Adam and I took the deck down. It was a huge job that we tackled on some of the hottest, most humid days this summer. It looks pretty different in the backyard now. We still have all the stones that were around the pool and under the deck to get moved. They will go along the sidewalk alongside the garage, but not until all the cement work is done.

I will miss having the pool, I loved being out there on hot summer days! But, I’m actually looking forward to not having to maintain it, and not having high electric bills in the summer, and everything else that goes along with having a pool. It will mean more room for the dogs to play. It will mean less of an obstacle course when cutting the grass. It’s gonna be nice, actually!

So, yes, our pool days are over. But, it”s ok. There are plenty of places we can go to swim if we want.
