Making the Cut

I have been mowing lawns since I can remember.  I want to say I stared when I was in fourth grade, but maybe not.  We had a big yard growing up and it took forever to mow that thing!  We had a hill on the side of our house that was a challenge to get up and down.  After I was married we bought my childhood home so I mowed that one yard for well over 2 decades!

I have mowed the lawn while listening to music, carrying a baby on my back, and even while running to try to get it done quickly!  I don't have one of those awesome fancy riding mowers with the cup holders and I don't do the fancy lines this way one week and another way another week.  I section off the yard and try to get it done as fast and as easy as I can.  Sometimes I miss spots, run into things, and obliterate sprinkler heads (which I did last week), but it does eventually get done!

I have been mowing the yard every week since Spring came along this year.  I can't think of other women I know that mow their lawn, but I do it so Ryan has more time at night with me and the kids.  I actually like being able to drown out all of the other sounds and be alone with my own thoughts and unfortunately this seems like one of the only times I can do that!  I also want to show my kids that girls can do things like mow lawns and take care of things that men and boys usually do. 

This week I was mowing the lawn and I stopped to empty the bag and check on the two little kids.  While their mother was sweating and slaving away I have to show you what Lola and Tyce were doing:

These life lessons take time to sink in right?!

  18. When we wash our face in the morning we're cleaning HydraLyft Review the dirt, bacteria, and oil that was left behind during the night. Traditionally using soap, warm water, and a washcloth was the thought to be useful method, which has since been proven obsolete. A daily face cleanser, containing all natural ingredients such as aloe, tangerine oil, Shea butter, and olive leaf extract is a better idea. Aloe and Shea butter moisturize, while the olive leaf kills bacteria that can lead to breakouts, and tangerine oil cleans pores, boosting the skins ability to absorb essential vitamins.Using a quality, all natural moisturizer after a bath, shower, just after washing your face is the absolute best time to apply. The skin is damp and the pores are clean and clear, allowing for complete moisture and nutrient absorption. Moisturizing every day will keep your skin healthy and hydrated, especially if you live in Florida or Arizona. Living in dry/humid warm weather year round does some serious damage to the skin, and your skin does get thirsty. Make sure to give it the moisture it needs.Until recent years, most people just grabbed any old sun block, thinking that it all worked the same. With the growing rate skin cancer, most have started paying much more attention as to what SPF they are using. Use a sunscreen with an SPF higher that forty, and make sure to reapply every two hours - even for waterproof sun block, water and sweat can still wear it off. Be careful to avoid the sun between 10am to 2pm when harmful rays are strongest There are also organic sunscreens that are chemical free, contain all natural moisturizers, and haven't been tested on animals.
