How an intended lazy Sunday became a domestically productive day
April 10, 2011 § 5 Comments
Today, I woke up fully intending to sit around all day and nap when I felt like it. Yesterday, my normal day off, was incredibly productive. I wrote additional pages, finished up my cover letter, CV, resume, statement of teaching philosophy, and heard back from the third of my professional references. I’m still feeling happy and excited about tomorrow’s meeting–I literally can’t stop thinking about this job prospect.
In lieu of utter laziness and in need of a distraction from my hopefulness…today became Laundry Day.
After reading my friend Vikki’s step-by-step guide to making powdered laundry detergent back in February, I’ve been dying to try out this method. But I had to wait until we’d used up all our Tide. That day was today. Laundry Day. So, Robert and I went to the store, and a little over $15 later (I had to buy an entire pallet of Ball jars–Kroger didn’t sell them individually) I was able to make this:
In Vikki’s post, she used Zote (14.1 oz). I couldn’t find Zote, so I ended up using roughly 14 ounces of Ivory instead. The detergent is super yummy smelling!
Thanks, Vik, for the awesome tip! 🙂
