Merry We Meet!!

This is my space to share, rant, rave, and even do a little bragging about my life choices, family, and where each are taking me.

Many people think 'witch' and immediately jump to the conclusion that I am some weirdo who's home smells like stale incense and thinks Mr. Potter is end all be all of magick. I hate to disappoint, but I am as normal as the next person. As much as a person can be normal.

So, please read on. Enjoy my trials and tribulations. Hopefully, you can learn something from the mistakes I make and the good fortunes that come my way.

Baseball and bread making

what's could those 2 things have in common? Well...both were accomplished today. There has been a huge influx of housework performed at my home the past few days! I decided a few weeks ago that I really needed to go back to the therapist. My life had hit a pretty rough patch and I could no longer cope on my own.

I'm not one who jumps to Western medicine, but I'd become a danger to myself. I am not afraid to admit that I have problems. I also know when its time to medicate. Let me tell you, I have not felt more like myself....ever.

I am able to do everything I used too. I don't spend all day on the couch because I just don't have the energy. I have started writing again, cooking REAL meals.

And now, I am sitting on a bleacher bench, my butt sore as hell, but I'm still enjoying being present in my kid's life.

Speaking of baseball, I'm excited for this season. Eldest has an amazing coach! This is going to be a good year. Gods willing :)

Well it is quite chilly... so blessed be my wonderful readers!

Let's talk about butts...

The Chubs came down with a terrible case of liquid poopy diapers. This lasted for almost 2 weeks. The end result was a horrible yeast infection and diaper rash. Of course the doctors gave him creams to fix it. I hate using chemicals when something natural can work just as well if not better. So... a friend of mine passed along her knowledge to me and I replaced conventional wipes with these. Let me tell you... both rashes were cleared up over night!

To make "Baby Butt Soap":

1 cup water
1 tsp Dr. Bronner's castile soap
5 drops tea tree essential oil
10 drops lavender essential oil

Mix well.

Now I sliced up 3 xl t-shirts to make my wipes and I just wash and reuse them. But if you don't want the hastle of that, just use a sturdy paper towel.

I loooooove these wipes. They are the best wipes I've ever used. Not only are they great for his bottom, but amazing on the budget. The cost of making these wipes is about the same as 2 big boxes of wipes. If I don't use the stuff for anything but wipes, I'll have enough for almost 2 years.

Now, I dont mix the wipes with soap like some people do. I keep a container of soap and a container of clean clothes. And dip the cloths as needed. If I go out, I mix a dozen or so wipes with the mix and I bring a zip lock bag to store the dirties.

Oh yea... if you don't have a stock pile of t-shirts, you can also use baby washcloths. Just remember that you are going to be using these on a very sensitive area. If your child is prone to diaper rash, washcloths may be a little rough.

Happy diaper changing :)

Easter Sunday

I know I've been slacking again on the postings. I've been really sick. Ostara came and went without too much going on in our home. The stomach flu and other child-borne viruses saw to that. I haven't even switched over my altar yet.

As with everything else though... it will just take a bit of time. I really need to acquire a new altar cloth for the spring season. I believe its the only season I don't have one for. The blue I use for the winter is so pretty I don't usually want to switch. That; and I haven't found anything that really shouts SPRING to me.

Daddy recently showed a co-worker of his a picture of my altar (apparently it was brought up in conversation) and he said it was completely NOT what he expected. I get this a lot from certain pagan groups a lot. I feel that each altar, of which I have 4, should be very personal and sacred to the individual. It shouldn't have to follow a mold or conform to anyone else's ideas.

Not surprisingly, that is also how I live each and every day of my life. I don't do things the way I'm expected to. I do things my way, the way that brings out my happiness. Not saying I never do things I don't want to do... this is real life after all.

And that brings me full circle, I don't personally celebrate Easter. I do it for my boys and extended family. But today is a bittersweet day for me. The eldest is with his biological father. Daddy and I were discussing it today, our family is always incomplete on these days. It just doesn't feel right to not have him with us.
