Great Purex Deal!!

This week I applied for and was accepted as a Purex Insider (you could join, too). This is a way that I can help promote a product that I use every. single. day. I have always used Purex detergent for our clothing. Other brands have caused allergic reactions in my family, but Purex has never caused us any problems. Plus, it is very inexpensive and does a great job keeping our clothes clean.

I will, hopefully, be chosen for some of the promotions so that I can share coupons, products, and giveaways with you.

Until then, however, I found my own Purex deal today! Our Dollar General is running a special on 75  Fl. Oz. bottles of Purex detergent. They are $3.25 per bottle through January 25th. Their regular price is $5.50 at Dollar General, and I believe about that same price at Walmart. That's a savings of $2.25 per bottle right there!

Then, if you have one of your $5 off $25 coupons that prints off at the register (or that you can get by looking at January 7th on their FB page - image below), you can purchase 8 bottles of Purex detergent (that's 400 loads) for $26.00 minus your $5.00 coupon, so $21.00 plus tax! Regular price would be $44.00. That is a total savings of $23.00!! THAT is a great deal on a product we all have to use. So, if I do 10 loads of laundry a week (which I don't do that much), I have enough laundry detergent for 40 weeks! Do that deal twice and you have enough laundry detergent stockpiled for the next year and half, at a bargain price.

Cells ~ It's What's for Dinner

Dawson made edible cells on Friday.

He made an animal cell pizza ...

and a plant cell chocolate chip cookie ...

He reviewed what he's learned about cells the past two weeks, and I had dinner made by someone else. Win, win!!

I am linking up at Science Sunday at Adventures in Mommydom.

Ketogenic + Restless Legs = Insomnia ... Um, No!

Okay, I have been eating ketogenic for five days now. I have gotten through the carb detox headaches and have settled into a macro plan of 5% carbs (no grains), 20% protein, 75% fat.

The upside is that I like the idea of limiting my body of all of the glucose which will help my minor health conditions.

But there are definitely downsides!

The first is that I am having a hard time getting in enough fats under the strictures of the diet. Who knew it would be hard to eat fats? The real problem is that the fats I want to eat then include a consumption of protein and/or carbs and then throws off my percentages. Still working on that one.

The bigger issue is that for the past couple of nights I have had trouble sleeping, and I have had restless legs.

Sleeping is one of those things that I do well. I go to bed at the same time every night (for the most part) and get up at the same time each morning. I can fit in a 15-30 minute power nap in the afternoon and have no trouble going to sleep at n…

America: The Story of Us ~ Episode 3: "Westward 1" Lesson Plans

This past summer, when I planned our lessons for this year, I was enthralled with how much information was in Episode 3 ~ Westward. It couldn't be done in just three weeks, as I had intended for each unit. So, I broke Westward up into two separate units: Westward 1 and Westward 2. This week I will provide the lesson plans for Westward 1. We spent three weeks on this part of the unit.

We readThe Captain's Dog by Roland Smith. We read an equal number of pages each day to cover the three-week unit (Suprisingly, Dawson did not enjoy this book as much as I thought he would. With him being such a dog-lover, I thought he would appreciate it more. But it just didn't have enough action for him. You'll find that he's hard to please when it comes to literature. I actually really enjoyed The Captain's Dog and thought it was a great piece of historical fiction.)

We watched the entire Episode 3, did the discussion questions/video quiz for the episode and the vocabulary words…
