I've been laying low around these parts the last week or so. Last Thursday I had one of my wisdom teeth extracted, and holy cow! That knocked me on my keester! I pray I never need to be put under anesthesia again! The rest was not so bad, not much pain, minimal swelling and no bruising. I just feel a little out of it still, like I could just take a nap all the time.
In other news, and I don't have pics for this, but I did finally make homemade laundry soap! I had been wanting to try this for awhile, and for some reason it intimidated me, not sure why? Seriously it was so EASY! And quick, which was the real surprise. I followed this recipe, except I used Fels Naptha laundry bar soap. In total I think I spent about $15, which included the 5 gallon bucket. I found a really pretty grass green one at Freddy's, and that's reusable so hardly counts in the total but it was $4.99. I grated the Fels Naptha in my food processor with the cheese grater side up, everything rinsed out very well. The recipe makes 3 gallons at a time, and I have a TON of borax and washing soda left so I can't even imagine how inexpensive in the long run this is going to be. And, best part is that I have sensitive skin and so far no itching! I was a little worried about that after I made it, and I was like dang! now I have 3 gallons of this stuff and what if I can't even use it? I would've been able to give it away, I'm sure. So, I say, if you have wanted to try making this - do it.
