We drive to Seattle at least once a year. Sometimes my son has appointments at Children’s Hospital, sometimes we’re just visiting…well, we always have people to visit.  My husband & I were raised south of Seattle & we have many friends & family here that make the trip special, regardless of the “why”.

When I posted about being out of town, this is what I was speaking of. 

I noticed that now that I’m making all of my own cleaning products, my “to do” list, as well as my packing list, were much different this time. Let me show you what I mean…

  • pack kids clothes (at least enough for 1 week)
  • bathroom stuff
  • laundry soap
  • dryer balls
  • my clothes (don’t forget party dress)
  • baking soda in shaker (for hair)
  • vinegar/water bottle (for hair)
  • homemade detangler (for hair)

…the packing list continued on a bit. Then there was the to-do list…

  • batch of dishwasher detergent (for hubby)
  • batch of surface cleaner (for hubby)
  • get snacks for the car
  • make natural fruit snacks for kids

I didn’t want to leave my husband low on something & force him to have to go to the store & buy something (or bring chemicals into the home that I’ve worked so hard at reducing!). I also know that because my youngest is still in cloth diapers, we’d be doing a lot of laundry the couple of weeks we’re staying with family, so we should bring our own.

Packing & Planning are more interesting when you make your own stuff, for sure (I literally almost packed surface cleaner & fabric fresher & bleach alternative too!). Heh.

    Incredible! You are that and more. So glad you are in my life. Drive carefully and enjoy your visits. If Jacob is being tested, let me know the findings.

    I take it Brian is NOT going with you. Be well.

    • Brian is home working & looking after the dog. He may come for a weekend while I’m here. Jacob doesn’t have any appointments this trip, but will be joining us here after he finishes celebrating Father’s Day with his dad.
      Thank you for your continued love & support.
      I am making a more mild batch of the surface cleaner for you when I get home to replace what you have, since the smell was too strong for you. Once you spray & wipe the smell goes away quickly, but it is strong in the bottle.
      See you at the end of the month!
