What a week, what a week! As the children in school spin out of control with their Halloween sugar highs I am digging deep for something to be thankful for.lol When I took this job I knew I wanted to work with children, I had never before dealt with children with disabilities. I have to say this job has changed my life! Only 9 weeks into school my path in life has taken a turn. Even on my worst days the children I work with bring me so much joy. So today I am thankful for the blessing in life that most people consider burdens :O) Being called mom all day long because you are a female and they cannot express their need for your attention any other way. I'm so thankful for the simple innocence that is the special needs child. Of course I am also thankful for a loving supportive husband and amazing children. I hope everything today is feeling as thankful as I am! Plus tomorrow is Friday!
We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back out.lol
