Handy Bit of Info...

Did you know that garlic is a natural antibiotic? Shane had a chest infection and I loaded him up with a dinner of minced garlic with a side of spaghetti noodles and sauce and put garlic drops in his ears and he totally cleared up. No doctor visit or meds! Works for me every time too - as long as we don't eat any form of sugar because that will counteract it. In fact, one of the best ways to keep an immune system up is the absence of sugar and the presence of a great multivitamin and minerals. Also the best way to avoid asthma attacks for asthma sufferers - no sugar. Cool thing to know I thought so I wanted to share.

No Way! After 9 years of marriage, Shane's college degree, 3 houses, 2 kids, vacations and work, we are finally out of the red. We did our balance sheet yesterday and we actually have a positive net worth! It may only be 863 dollars which I could easily blow celebrating our new financial status, but for now I have to celebrate in the blog world first. Ok, that's good - I'm going to Banana Republic now.

My Cuz... It's so great to live close to Shane's sister and her fam. This is Reese, Ellie's cousin who lives a stone's throw away - they're getting into the purse and doll stage and I couldn't be more ecstatic . I've been through all the boy stuff over the last 7 years and am ready for a little estrogen based play. See how Reese is somewhat backing away from Ellie in this top picture? That would be because she never knows if Ellie's touch will be a soft or let's wrestle one. Ring around the rosie frequently turns into "we all fall down and oops i fell over on you".
