Empty houses and painted toe nails

The house seems pretty empty today. I awoke to only half of my children being home. It is very rare that my kids stay overnight anywhere, so rare its maybe once a year. And on those days I feel kinda lost. Its pretty quiet...theres no bickering and rough housing going on. LOL

My 3 and 5 year old woke and played play dough for a few hours this morning and Eve has been being Eve. I figured to day I would take the younger three to McDonalds and let them play for a while.

Last night my childrens god mother gave my 5 year old 3 dollars as a way to make herself feel better for not taking him as well ;-) So I told him we would go to dollar tree and he could pick out a few toys. I got a great idea from Tiany and her post from yesterday. I decided that on our way to the dollar tree I would stop in at the Local Bath & Body shop and get some nice smelling lotions and soap. Well I gave it a most noble and honest effort. I smelt about every scent from sweat pea to vanilla sugar. I just couldnt get past the 9.50 price tag on the bottom of the bottle (you know back when they first opened the price for most of their products was around 6.50) I decided that I would go ahead and see what they had at the Dollar tree instead. LOL So I ended up getting a bottle of rose lilly shower gel and some playdough, molding clay, puffy stickers, and some "scheduled" play time totes (to hold toys only to be played with during specific play times)
Turns out that the shower gel smelled really good, BUT it doesnt lather. haha

Anyway in another noble effort to take more time for myself, while I was deep cleaning my bathroom this morning. I sat on the floor and painted my toe nails (I figured they could dry while I cleaned the toilet.) They hadnt been painted in over a year. As I was cleaning out my cabinet I realized that I have had the same bottle of hairspray for two years. LOL I guess you dont really need hairspray for long hair that hasnt been cut in many years and lives in a ponytail ;-))

Dont give up on me yet, I'm still working on it.

OH GIRL, I JUST PAINTED MY TOENAILS ABOUT A MONTH AGO AND BEFORE THAT IT HAD BEEN ABOUT 5 YEARS! I PAINT THE GIRLS ALL THE TIME. THE PAINT ON MINE NOW IS PART OF THE WAY GROWN OUT AND CHIPPED THE REST. I DONT EVEN OWN POLISH REMOVER. AS FOR THE HAIRSPRAY I KEEP IT AROUND FOR WHEN I DO SOMEONE ELSES HAIR AND THEY WANT TO FIX IT BEFORE THEY LEAVE. JORDAN USED THE LAST OF IT A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO. I WEAR MINE SO SHORT THERE IS NO NEED FOR SPRAY - I DONT EVEN COMB OR BRUSH IT.

Ha ha you made me laugh with this!!! Yes Bath and body has become so incredibly expensive I spent $16 on the gift set and got all 4 items though! The reason for your bath soap not lathering could also be what you’re using to lather with and not so much the soap! I use one of those bath puffs. So what was your favorite scent at Bath n body???

I like the more herbaly ones like in the dark opaque bottles. I really liked the Cherry blossom though in there regular line. It smelled like a really light rose sent mixed with another flower. Very nice. I liked the magnolia as well. Who knows I might just have to stop back in there again and splurge. Im agraid the reason my dollar tree shower gel didnt lather was because it only cost a dollar. LOL I'm not sure anything can help it in the lather department. So I will just put it in my bath for aromatherapy ;-))

Oh that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever! Duet 5:29
