If you click through my links & buy, I will receive a small comission. Thank you! It’s been around 6 years since we dumped our cable bill. We love Amazon Prime for videos and have occasionally purchased or paid to rent movies or additional episodes. I just learned that we can add Showtime, Starz (loads of movies, including Inside Out, are included!), Comedy Central Stand Up and even fitness and workout channels with Amazon Add On Subscriptions.
I am finally on the mend after suffering through the flu. I can’t recall a time I have ever been so ill. Even with round the clock, more than recommended doses of ibuprofen & acetaminophen, my temp was anywhere between 103 and 105.6, with occasional dips in the 101-102 range. I don’t know what my highest temp was since I wasn’t taking it the first few days. I was desperate and literally crying, begging & praying for relief. 🙁
Of course, being Mom means resting was out of the question. The worst started on a Saturday and my hubby tried to watch the kids as much as possible so I could rest. I am usually incapable of leaving messes, but I could barely move those first few days. I did my best to keep up with laundry, dishes, diapers, toys & minimal cleaning while I was sick, and I was seriously wishing I was loaded & had a maid, nanny & cook, ha.
That Monday, I woke my daughter for school, settled on the couch to nurse my son, and promptly fell asleep, waking after my daughter had missed the bus. It is only about 5/6 miles and 10 minutes to her school, but I was so out of my mind from fever, it was a terrifying ride.
After bone shaking chills, bed soaking sweats, and fever induced, middle of the night hallucinations, I have finally come through the other side. My fever is under control and I’m just dealing with exhaustion, headache, ear ache, body aches & cough now.
I don’t have much energy & can’t stand terribly long, which is why I am so grateful right now for my Haan SI75 Power & Finesse Steamer! It’s so easy to use & quick to heat up, that I can clean one thing at a time as I am able. Faucet handles, sinks, toilet handles, counter tops, floors…you name it. Germs are getting steamed away. Did you know you can even steam sanitize your toothbrush? I wish I’d had this in past years when we kept passing around the stomach bug. I also kinda wish it would do the cleaning itself, like Roomba, ha ha!!
Remember that you can still get $10 off the Haan SI75 through 1/22/13 at 12:01 A.M. with coupon DIAPERS75 in case you want one too!
My "New Year's Resolution" about 10 years ago was to polish my work wardrobe, and ditch the khakis & sweater combo. The cut and color of my jeans and length and fit of my tops has shifted over the years, but I've never been into any extreme styles!
You'll usually find me in boot cut jeans, sleeveless tops & sweaters, with heeled boots or flats. During my last pregnancy, wearing pants got real old, real fast (I know you feel my pain!) and I added a bunch of inexpensive (non-maternity) empire-waist dresses into my wardrobe. No nonsense tights and leggings would be an afforable way to stretch those dresses even further, and turn them into totally different styles, even taking them into fall & winter. Not to mention that I've learned skirts without leggings is asking for trouble when you're wrangling kiddos, LOL. Anyone else dealt with an unexpectedly windy day while chasing kiddos in the park?
No nonsense tights & leggings are sold at food & drug stores, as well as mass retailers. Despite their affordability, fashion expert and brand ambassador Jill Martin (co-author of the best selling style guide "I Have Nothing to Wear!") is making sure No nonsense keeps their tights & leggings on trend.
