The day started with taking Justin back to work, we skipped breakfast because we were running late I didn't want to be late for church so he owes me a date. I wore my other new outfit to church and it's amazing what dressing nice can do for your self esteem:) After church guess what I came home to? A clean house! My son and his girlfriend cleaned the entire house. It was a mess from my husband cooking in the kitchen for some reason when he cooks he manages to use every dish and pot in the house and although I appreciate his cooking he is kind of a slob in the kitchen. I clean as I go. I went to bed early because I had severe menstrual cramps so the house was a mess when I woke up. I thought it was very sweet of them to clean for me. I took a little nap then we went to the Goodwill just to find an umbrella and a wig for my son's halloween costume. I also found Avery 2 cute dresses for church. I'm going to go back tomorrow when my cramps are weaker and get a few more dresses, they were only $2.47. I think that was only the third time since I have lived in Oregon that I have been to a thrift store. I should go more often.
My husband really loved this cat that we found and it's been over a week and since no one has claimed him we will keep him. I will have my daughter take down the signs we posted tomorrow.
I was going to make chicken and dumplings today but since we have so many left overs from yesterday thats what we will eat. Tuesday we will have dumplings:) I think I'm going to go have another cup of the Chai Lattee that Peggy recommended, it is really good. Does anyone have any herbal or home remedies for cramps? Please share if you do. I have battling these for years and have tried prescription meds but the side effects are just not worth it. Have a good evening!

That was nice of your son and his girl friend to clean for you.

My oldest daughter gets bad cramps, she takes 4 ibuprofens every 4 hours for it.

I wanted to ask you, what do you clean your kitchen cabinets with?

Glad you like the tea!! I am having a cup too. Your hubby is so much like mine. He loves to cook but the kitchen is destroyed afterwards and I am left to clean it. LOL Check out Juli's tea shop I mentioned in the same post as the other teas. She grows her own herbs and blends the teas herself. She has one for cramps. The migrane one really works for me as well as the one for stress. She is amazing herbalist.
