Whatcha Working on Wednesday and Birthday

Today is once again Whatcha Working on Wednesday with Leslie hosting this fun & motivating day. She hasn't posted today so I think she is doing it!
I am going to start a load of wash & get my workout done first thing after the kiddos are all off to school. I have some of Alan's shirts that need pressed and about 4 loads of laundry to do today, using my new laundry detergent that I made on Monday. I added essential oil of peppermint it smells really good.
I have in the works for my rest periods throughout the day to work on my Family Preparedness folder. This is different than my control journal and needs to be updated a bit.
I am still working on the closets trying to get them rearranged to make them more functional.
Remember that little lamp I got from my neighbor? It is on this post . It is going to be taken care of today. Maybe the chair too.
I am going over to help Coco hang pictures at her house. She is feeling like her house is not a home yet. I think curtains and pictures can do that to a house.
My list grows on and on each day. I had planned on working on some of these things yesterday but hubby needed my help putting up 6 lights in our garage. Yes it was a 2 person job and after doing kickboxing yesterday and standing with my arms up in the air a good portion of yesterday holding up lights and using the drill my arms are mush! I had fun hanging out with hubby though.
Last night I had invited Coco, Kyle and Talmage over for dinner. I made the Taco Bake and it was pretty good. I will be using that recipe again. After that was over we were watching The Biggest Loser. Alan was laying on the floor playing with Talmage. Alan would cover his eyes and the open his hands and let out a not so loud AHHH and Talmage was giggling so hard it was so cute! Alan would stop when the show started and Talmage would go and try to move Alan's hand back on his eyes to play again. I think Coco is putting a short video on her blog with it. Alan was having as much fun as Talmage was.
Okay so off to get some things done. Have a great day! Hugs, Bobbi Jo

Bobbi Jo, how did you make your own laundry detergent, sweetpea? I'm one who is really affected by smells; I mean I love good smelling things. I got a scentsy burner recently but can't find a scent that I'm particularly fond of and was thinking of making my own. Do you have any clue how to do that???? Heeeelpppp, Mormon Mom!!!!!!!

I was a bit behind this morning. I feel so behind in blog land (Happy Birthday, Talmage!) but one day I'll be back to my norm!

Sounds like you had lots planned today! I hope you accomplished all you wanted to. :)
