Thursday Home Remedy


These are home health remedies that have been emailed to me or that I found on the Internet.  I have not tried them all and do NOT guarantee the effectiveness of them.  If you try one and it works, or if you have one that works for you, please email me.  Thanks.

Toe Fungus

  • Get rid of unsightly toenail fungus by soaking your toes in Listerine mouthwash. The powerful antiseptic leaves your toenails looking healthy again. (My mom says this is also good to get rid of itching if you are suffering from it.)
  • Use Vicks Vapor Rub


A sure sign of fall...we woke up to fog this morning.  I'm feeling a bit conflicted.  I hate the cold weather, and being stuck inside so much, but I love the winter holidays.  I love the decorations, the smell of fall and the smell of Christmas, preparing all the goodies and shopping for my kids. 

It should be even more fun this year with Rylie at the age she is.  She loves the lights...and there are always plenty of lights at our house, lol.  She definately figured out how to unwrap the presents this time.  As a matter of fact, I had to re-wrap a few of the gifts that I had under the tree before Santa arrived.


There is one guest that we had with us last year that I hope we do NOT see again.  That would be Fat Freddy.  If you have been visiting my journal since (almost) the beginning you know about Fat Freddy, if not click here to read my first entry about this uninvited, and hard to get rid of,  guest.  I must admit, some of my best writing involved Freddy.  He definately provided me with some humorous stories.  Luckily for us we have not seen him for months and months. 

Well, have a great day and be safe out there!

I have heard of the Listerine trick and have heard it works!  I love the holidays, but this year unfortunately I'm worried because my girls are so used to getting tons of presents. However, this year we just don't have the money.  Well, I guess that would call for me to get creative.  I do love the cold weather, living in the deep south it's constantly HOT so I LOVE the cold!  Hopefully Freddy found some candy elsewhere far from your home!

Fat Freddie sounds like an unwanted guest I have in my laundry room. Much as I hate to hurt a little creature..he has got to go.......too bad you don't have a home remedy for that. Bamnfla
