A real day off!

I think I just may have the greatest husband in the world.

This amazing man has decided that since tomorrow is a holiday (in Canada, at least), that I should have a real holiday, too. I am talking a genuine, don’t-do-a-thing, kick up my feet and do whatever I want kind of day off (well, mostly, I still have the children around). Have I even had a day like this since my first child was born? I can barely remember!

He completely blitzed the house tonight, leaving it spic and span so I don’t have to worry about it at all. He gave me mad money so that I could buy lunch for the kids and I. After he told me the plans, I chipped in and helped finish up the work, made a baked oatmeal to stick in the oven tomorrow morning, and started washing diapers which I usually wash every Monday.

My plan? Maybe take the kids and my homestay students to the library. Then come back and sit outside in the sunshine, watching the kids play while I read a good book (gosh, I might just read several!). After my students leave at 1pm for a party, I will pack up and take the kids out for lunch, then to a water park to play for the afternoon. In the evening, we’ll come back home to my sweet hubby making us some taco salad.

Ahhh… I seriously cannot wait. This sounds absolutely amazing to me! A fun, relaxing day, enjoying my sweet children and not worrying about a single thing in the house!

Am I spoiled or what? Needless to say, I’m not supposed to be blogging tomorrow. You better believe I’m going to obey. I am taking the whole. entire. blissful. day. off.

See you Tuesday!

A Parent's Guide to Natural Remedies eCourse

I don't know if you've seen it or not, but I've shared a couple times this week about a collection of resources I'm honored to be a part of with some really brilliant authors and bloggers.

Before it's gone, I wanted to make sure that you knew that "A Parent's Guide to Natural Remedies" eCourse is included in the collection. If you're anything like me, you want to learn more about using natural methods for taking care of your family, but sometimes it's just hard to know where to start. Roxanne and Wendi have done a masterful job of boiling down the complexities of wholistic family care - including homeopathy, cell salts, essential oils, probiotics, and a bunch more - and making it really accessible for regular moms.

The crazy thing is...although they usually sell the eCourse at $95 (and it's a steal at that!), they've agree to include it in the special collection of resources I've helped put together, for only $29.97.

But, if you think getting a crash course in natural remedies at two thirds off the regular price is awesome, I think you'll be surprised to learn that it comes with 98 other resources handpicked for moms like you and me.

The Ultimate Homemaking Bundleis a complete library of carefully selected eBooks, eCourses, audios, online conferences, and printable packs from many of the top homemaking bloggers and writers on the web, to help you be the best mom and homemaker you can possibly be.

Now, you're obviously not going to read every eBook, and every eCourse (that would be a bit much!), but I think you'll find a number of resources in the collection to inspire, teach, equip, and encourage you in your role as a homemaker for years to come.

Valued at over $1290 but at a price tag of just $29.97, this is one tool your home can't do without!

Plus, everyone who buys a bundle through Keeper of the Home gets a bonus 2 oz. liquid herbal remedy AND our very own 4 ebooks, all designed to help you with more affordable, healthy homemaking. Learn more HERE.

But time is running out! The Ultimate Homemaking Bundle will only be available from 8:00 a.m. EST on Monday, April 20 until 11:59 p.m. EST on Monday, April 27. motionmailapp.com
