#WordlessWednesday: Cold Water Washing

Wordless Wednesday: The Cold Water Washing

Christa Clips discovered that her cold setting on the washing machine was using hot water!

We wash almost exclusively with cold water.
When we installed our new washing machine (and dryer *cough*sputter … more on that later!), I thought we’d crossed the hot/cold water hoses because my cold water washes had a LOT of hot water filling the drum.

It turns out that I need to push the temp button one more time until no light shows to reach the “tap cold” setting.

I’m sad that this more eco-friendly and budget saving setting was undeserving of its own little light. I think I’ll attach a little sticker to cheer myself up!

Wordless Wednesday: Lizard Licks!

Keeping young children hydrated during a stomach flu can be really stressful. Christa Clips Save-at-Home-Mom shares a tip on how to make hydration fun!

Keeping young children hydrated during a stomach flu can be really stressful. Christa Clips Save-at-Home-Mom shares a tip on how to make hydration fun!

Our son (5) has been home all week with a nasty stomach flu. Trying to keep him hydrated without sending him running to the toilet has been a challenge – even small “sips” were too much for his tummy to handle.  So we came up with “Lizard Licks” and it worked! Every 5 minutes he dipped his tongue in the shot glass (ha!) and seems to have even adopted lizard posture and etiquette!

“Lizards don’t wipe their lips on their sleeves, Mom. They don’t even wear shirts.”

Right.

This Save-at-Home-Mom is glad she had the time to nurse her little lizard back to health at a relaxed pace without a trip to the doctor. Today we’re onto entire shots at a time! Bottoms up!
