She is cured!!

Spunky all covered in Mayo with her head wrapped in a garbage bag. lol This was the second time around and she was not very happy about it!
After two treatments of Rid and two nights of being slathered in Mayo (the full fat kind) for 5 hrs each time, we have gotten rid of the lice!! WOOHOO! I have to tell you that this has been huge PITA and I hope to never have to do it again! Although since Spunky is in Elementary school for another two years, I am sure it is bound to pop up again.

If and when it does I can honestly say that Mayo will be my first course of action for several reasons. One being the cost, which for us was none since we always have a big jar in the fridge! Plus it really aided in removing the nits etc from her hair cause it helped them slip right out. I will however follow up with a Rid treatment like I did this time because it ensures that they have all been killed even the eggs.

Moving, lice and other creepy crawlies that go bump in the night

This week has been a doozy to say the least!!! Monday we moved into our new "place" and we all know how much chaos moving entails, especially when kids are involved! It was pretty uneventful and we are very happy to be back together as a family!! More to come about that later. I have a whole post ready and waiting..

On to the lice, while I was parting Aubrey's hair to put it up Monday morning I realized that she had a rip roaring case of lice.... Now she had been scratching her head quite a bit for about a week & a half and I honestly thought she was having a case of dry scalp which happens to her sometimes.

I had been checking her head several times throughout the past few weeks and have not seen any evidence of lice until Monday... When I realized what was happening I about freaked out all the while my skin crawled!! We have only had lice one other time WAY back in 2008 so it had been awhile.

I searched through the internet and of course asked my friends on Facebook what they have done to get rid of these nasty little pests!! After reading all the comments etc I decided that we would start with Rid and then move on to Mayo since that seemed to be the best way of treating it. Monday night we treated everyone (even the bald guys) with Rid and it got rid of them for all of us, but poor little Aubrey. They must really like her nice, clean, not oily hair!

Sooooooo last night I doused her head with Mayo, wrapped it in saran wrap and made her stay that way until 10pm (5hrs later), she was NOT a happy camper! lol When she gets home here in a few and before we go visit Jeremy at the hospital. I will go through her hair once again and I am crossing my fingers this did the trick!!!

Oh and we washed and vacuumed the crud out of everything including the car so hopefully we have killed these nasty creepy crawly little creatures!!

Our love story

While messing around on Twitter the other day I came across a neat idea posted by Tina at Life Without Pink called Project Marriage and immediately knew I had to join! You should join in too it's gonna be tons of fun you don't wanna miss!

(The high school gang way back in 2000 at my mom's wedding!)

So here is our story! :) I have been married once in this short life and "in love" several times, but I have only had one true love. I met Jeremy my Freshman year in high school and instantly knew this was someone that would be important in my life. We dated for awhile and he was "the one" who turned me from a girl to woman, if you know what I mean. So of course from that moment on he has held a special place in my heart.

(Us in 2005)

We remained friends throughout high school even though we moved forward with different romantic relationships, but always held the same social circles. We had a close group of friends that all hung out on a consistent basis so remained close through the years. As we grew into adults and I moved to New Mexico for several years and we lost touch, but every time I came back to Austin we would visit for at least a little while. It was easy to see that the chemistry never left us and during these visits it became harder and harder to ignore.

(This past September)

I watched him go through many relationships and wondered if he would ever find the right person. I had no idea at the time that person would be me. We had know each other and been such good friends for so long it was not something that crossed my mind. I had not even considered him as an option. He of course had his own issues medical etc as did I and things never did seem to fall into place.

(New Year 2010)

When I came back from New Mexico in 2004 as a free woman we met back up as friends and it was as if we had never parted. Things were complicated and difficult for both of us to say the least, but we made it work and I am so happy that we did! We love our blended family even with the trials and tribulations it comes with we would not trade it for anything!

I love him with all my heart, he is my soul mate, my one and only!!!
