Sundays I usually do My Fab 5 of the Week, but since I didn't do anything but study my butt of this week, I had nothing! I tried to get most of the things done this week so I could have time to spend with my friend S from back home. She came up to visit me this weekend.
Thank goodness she did!
If anyone knows me, they know how terrified I am of mice. I used to be a nursing assistant, and let me tell you, I can clean up dead bodies all day.... but don't EVER expect me to dispose of a dead mouse!!!!! My husband happened to be out of town this past week. (Just my luck!) He set mouse traps about six months ago. We used the squeeze cheese in a can on the traps. The cheese on it didn't mold. Since it was squeeze cheese, it had petrified. So I figured we probably wouldn't catch anymore mice. I kept forgetting to throw the trap away since it was the one in my basement.
Monday, I went to put a box in the basement and FREAKED OUT when I saw it!!! Long story short, thank goodness S came up! I turned off my heat because I was afraid of that stupid dead mouse would make my house stink. S properly disposed of it for me (while I dry heaved.) Not only did she take care of the mouse fiasco, but she pulled a MacGyver and broke into my house less than 5 minutes flat when I locked us out. (Still not sure if I should be impressed, or question how she got to be so good at that!)
The next day, we decided to go into the Mountains. If you have never been to the Laurel Highlands, you should. They are so beautiful!

It was so beautiful, even if there was still snow up there!
My Mom told me several years ago about this homemade cleaner. Then, I was on Pinterest a few months back and found it and it reminded me to try it. I have been using it for a couple months now and I will never buy shower cleaner again! It is simply half dawn and half vinegar. I use both the sponge scrubber and the spray bottle. I use the sponge scrubber when I am in the shower. (I clean while I am taking a shower. Multitasker!) I use the spray bottle for the shower curtain once I am finished with my shower. (I hate it when the shower curtain starts smelling mildew-ish.) It cleans so wonderfully, and is so cheap to make, I'll never buy store bought cleaner again!
