When Hand-washing Isn't An Option

Full Disclosure: I received products free of charge for the purpose of providing a review. My opinions are completely my own based on my experience.

I would say it's that time of the year where germs abound. But the truth is - with our busy summer days at the pool, playgrounds and amusement parks, all year round is 'germy' for us.

And when washing our hands with soap and water isn't an option, Purell is a great option.

I wish I'd received this Purell pack a few weeks go!
Lil Man and I have been under the weather once school has started. I think we got a little lazy with keeping our hands off or our faces if you know what I mean. So I've definitely upped our nutrition along with hand washing and using wipes and hand sanitizer.

I don't allow Lil Man to use hand sanitizer without supervision. Too much can ... well.. be too much. So I always monitor his use. I prefer wipes for him when possible. And these Purell Wipes are great to stash in the car. They fit nicely in a cup holder. (and they also fit great in the side holder of my driver's side door

So far they have been gentle enough not to cause any irritation. We both have sensitive skin. 

And since Lil Man is back in preschool, I've been spending a lot of my time on-the-go. So these on-the-go packs are great. I have one attached to my book bag, my gym bag, and even my yoga bag. Seriously, I'm over the cold germs! 

Hopefully we are on the mend and can stay that way. I encourage you to use some germ prevention techniques: wash your hands with soap and water when possible, use antibacterial wipes or hand sanitizer when hand-washing isn't available, and keep your hands off of your face/eyes/mouth/nose.

Running My Life

Wow, has it really been 2 years since my last post? I suppose that I allowed life to get in the way. For any faithful blog readers, I apologize. Although, I'm not sure how many people actually read blogs anymore. I think most people use other social media platforms.  (By the way, drop by and say hi on Insta. )  But for some reason, each year when I pay for my google domain, I can't seem to let it go. As silly as it sounds, this little space is mine. And lately I've been struggling with ownership and acceptance. And my domain renewal was a not so gentle reminder that I have a voice .  Seriously, you'd think by 48 that I'd have this figured out - nope - apparently not. However, I am wise enough to know that we have a choice to allow situations to harms us or make us stronger. I'm choosing to let this mid-life quandary make me stronger. And because of this, I'm setting goals, taking charge, and reexamining priorities.  Movin' on... 

Self Care Is Not Selfish It's Necessary

It's not selfish to take care of yourself. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. And I'll say it just one more time in case you didn't hear me. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. I have found through experience that when I'm not taking care of myself, not only do I suffer but my family suffers. So ditch the mom guilt and take the time that you need! I have a tendency to keep pushing my needs aside until I reach a breaking point. We've had a very busy fun summer so far. However, I've struggled to get some quality ' me ' time to decompress. I'll spare you the meltdown that ensued. But the reality check that followed prompted me to take action.

When The Planner In You Must Be Flexible

In case you haven’t figured this out by now, I’m a planner. I know - shocker right?!? :) So although I love substitute teaching, it’s making the planner in me anxious. And it’s been reeking havoc on my workouts. Basically the morning of or maybe the night before, I find out if I’m working. So my day ( that I thought I had planned ) can be turned upside down in an instant. But, truthfully, isn’t that really the same with everyone?
