Purex Complete Crystals Softeners Totally Lives Up To The Hype!

I cannot imagine the amount of laundry I'll do in my lifetime, however when I'm not feeling too worn out to care, I like to feel my laundry soft and luxurious which makes me want to just roll in it. I also love a faint scent that carries through and refreshes my home.

I used liquid fabric softeners for scent and softness, but, I'm learning that they aren't all the same make and not good for your clothes in the long term.

I'm sampling the new Purex Complete Crystals Softeners which is 92% natural, not oil-based like the other liquid fabric softeners, so instead of coating fabrics with oil, they work by penetrating the fabric and infusing fibers with freshness that lasts for weeks, not days.

I seriously didn't believe that this product could work like how it said it would. I usually don't believe in advertisements. I just had to try it!
It has a very nice scent that carries for awhile and it's not too strong and doesn't irritate my delicate nostrils.

I loved that it made my clothes soft as I would like them to be and this means I'll have to buy some more and try it again and again.
This is pretty darn awesome if you ask me.
No measuring of liquid softener or having to use dryer sheets!! I'm all for that!

I remember doing run spurts through my house to catch the rinse cycle so I could add the liquid detergent. If this will be my new choice, given all the positives, I know it will be a great switch and will save me lots of time on doing laundry.

Purex Complete Crystals Softener:
  • Ensure your towels stay fresh and absorbent.
  • First major fabric softener that is 100% safe to use on children's sleepwear as it does not impair these flame retardant qualities.
  • Does not inhibit wicking fabrics, making it safe to use on all of your active and athletic wear.

The Purex Complete Crystals Softeners promises a purer and more natural way to keep laundry smelling clean and fresh for weeks! I like that very much.

It is pretty easy and cuts down on the amount of time being spent on doing laundry. No need to struggle with waiting for the rinse cycle to put in softener or dryer sheets after loading the dryer!  Just put the crystals in at the beginning of the laundry cycle.

This is how it works

Purex Complete Crystals Stofteners penetrate fabrics to reduce fiber entanglement and smooth frayed fibers providing a naturally soft feel.
They are safe for all laundry and come in different fragrant choices.

Friday

I've been hit by a truck

I feel like I've been run over by a truck.

I've been terribly sick.  And it's the worse when it's only you, no husband, no family to help.

I kept thinking I should call my neighbor just in case something should happen, so the kids wouldn't be alone.

My body still aches and my skin is still a bit tender to the touch, but I can feel my strength coming back bit by bit.

I think it's just in time because my daughter is getting sick now. Lastnight I had to cuddle with her so she could relax into sleep. She is doing the dog bark. And if anything is sure about my little girl is that she is dramatic with EVERYTHING! But I can tell she is sick.

I'm praying that my son wont get it.

I kept wondering why the babysitter still brought her child each day even when I was too weak to say a proper hello sometimes. I told her exactly what I had and she could see that I was sick.
As a studying nurse, you'd think she'd make the decision not to put her child in an unhealthy situation.  She still has not.

But honestly, I felt that her coming was hopeful for me because if anything should happen, she'd find me.

But I kept hoping she'd make a decision to keep her baby away for awhile.

I think I would.

Maybe she just doesn't have any other options right now.

So for now I'm trying really hard to keep things clean, washed etc so that the baby doesn't get sick.
It will be a whole other matter keeping her away from my sick daughter.

I guess I should say TGIF then eh.

So far she is laying here with me all morning.  Now to get her to eat a bite to keep nutrients going in.

Keep us in prayers loves.
Thanks.

Kindergarten Valentine

A note was sent home with my son that he should bring a card and candy to exchange on Valentine's Day.  We went shopping and he wanted to buy the whole class cards and chocolate because of course they are all his best friends! 
I told the big-hearted five year old that he could get two cards and two candy instead of just one. 
He wrote in it and we tied pretty bow on the card and chocolate so he could give whomever he wanted to make smile. 
pen with paperchoco bar Pictures, Images and Photos
When he got home yesterday he was in candy heaven with all the cards and candy he received from other students in his class!!!
I must say I was quite surprised. I had thought since they only said, one card, that each child would just exchange with one other student. 

Then the teacher sent me a note asking me who D's cards and chocolates were for? 
I wrote her a note letting her know that I have no idea. The school note said he should bring a card and candy, no peanuts, so they can exchange on Valentines Day. I'm assuming they would exchange with other students." 

Seriously I don't get it. 

Anyway, D has this one particular girl who just hangs all over him and she apparently brought a super big card for him, but had to take it back home because the teacher said it was too big :) 

He is five!!! 

My baby is five and he is all wrapped up in Valentines. 

I did get both my son and daughter a box of chocolates too, so that's extra loot. It will be interesting to see how much of his sweets he'll be sharing with his sister.

However I'm a candy grinch. I say that he can have a candy after homework each day and that's it.  Sometimes he is alright with it, other times he is upset as he wants to eat them all. Not in my house baby boy, or not until you know how to be more deceitful and hide and eat it anyway, which I'll still find out if you do :) 

At least the kids had a fun time at school. I don't remember ever having anything like that in my school, but then again, American schools are very different from others.

This is a first experience for me so at least next time I'll understand to give baby girl a bag of loot for her classmates. 

Enjoy your chocolates mi amigos!

Sunday

Who Love Me For Me? - Monda's Music MM And Memes

This is the one I'm loving this week.
Can't wait to see yours.
Welcome to Monday's Music Move Me. Link up with us and play.
And have a lighthearted week!




He cries in the corner where nobody sees

He’s the kid with the story no one would believe

He prays every night “Dear God won’t you please...

Could you send someone here who will love me?”


Who will love me for me

Not for what I have done or what I will become

Who will love me for me

‘Cause nobody has shown me what love

What love really means what love really means


Her office is shrinking a little each day

She’s the woman whose husband has run away

She’ll go to the gym after working today

Maybe if she was thinner then he would’ve stayed

And she says…


Who *will* love me for me?

Not for what I have done or what I will become

Who will love me for me?

‘Cause nobody has shown me what love

What love really means what love really means


He’s waiting to die as he sits all alone

He’s a man in a cell who regrets what he’s done

He utters a cry from the depths of his soul

“Oh Lord, forgive me. I want to go home”


Then he heard a voice somewhere deep inside

And it said “I know you’ve murdered

And I know you’ve lied

And I have watched you suffer all of your life

And now that you’ll listen I’ll tell you that I...”


I will love you for you

Not for what you have done or what you will become

I will love you for you

I will give you the love, the love that you never knew


I will love you for you

Not for what you have done or what you will become

I will love you for you

I will give you the love, the love that you never knew

Sometime later he fell in love

Whatever you are facing today. It's already in the bible.
How do you view people?

It takes me a very long time to trust people. I wait for the dating parade to be done with (there's where you put on your best self to sell how great you are) and then the real you will show up. Sometimes it takes quite a long time and by then, the person have moved on from me, which explains why I only have one best friend.

But your real self will show up. I believe in long dating period to get to know someone you will be wanting to spend your life with because believe it or not, the real person will show up and you'll have to decide seriously if you do want to spend the rest of your life with that person. I should have followed this advice. But my husband character, while it's flawed, I can still see it's beauty and I'm glad that I'm married to him. I feel I can trust him.

So I take a deep look at the person's character and I'm patient enough to wait for the character to show up.
What about you?

Judges 16:4 – Some time later, he fell in love
Some time later, he fell in love with a woman in the Valley of Sorek whose name was Delilah. – Judges 16:4

Samson was a man who had a problem with women. As we read the account of Samson we see that he was using all of the wrong things to determine whom he wanted to be with. Like Samson, we can be enchanted with outward appearances and miss people around us who bring many amazing traits that would fulfill our lives. Going for outward beauty instead of inward beauty was Samson’s downfall. What about us? What are we looking for in that special someone?

Thursday

Are Your Whites Pearly? - Aloha Friday

Since I'm hearing such good things about the electric/battery powered toothbrushes. I'm ready to invest in them for our family. I think my hubs have used an electric toothbrush before but no longer do.  I've been using manual all my life and so have my kids. 

QUESTIONS:
1. What kind of toothbrush do you use? manual or rechargeable? 
2. How do you sanitize your toothbrush? 
Ans: I boil our toothbrushes, then change them after certain months



My son was sick the other day and I made him soup. 
I bought a soup mix at Great Harvest Bread Company. The basic recipe is here. And I added carrots and chunks of ham to the mix. It was yummy. I especially loved that I get to sprinkle almonds in it. I didn't sprinkle for mine, I poured! I love almonds in everything! 

It's really yummy! You can have the soup with crackers or bread or rolls.




I am also joining in with Friday Follow. So if you happen to visit and follow me, I will definitely be returning the love.
