Warning: Whining ahead!

I finally broke down and ordered some FF shampoo and conditioner from Amazon. The brand is Earth Science, apparently a pretty popular one. Shipping was $9. Eek! But seeing as how I’d have to drive all the way to OKC to MAYBE find some in a store it’s going to work out the same.

And now I absolutely must find some dish soap that I can tolerate until the dishwasher is fixed. For the dishwasher I use a mixture of equal parts baking soda and borax and it works just great. But in the sink, as I said before, it ain’t cutting it. The borax seems to lose its grease-cutting power when dissolved in water, and the body-wash doesn’t last long enough, nor does it take the greasy fingerprints off the glasses. It’s just a nightmare. I want to cry thinking about the sink full of dirty dishes, knowing that I will spend a futile hour washing them, only to have it full again in another hour. I can’t keep up.

And my sink stopper doesn’t work right, and I hate the bits of food floating in the water, and I can’t seem to get to the store for some rubber gloves, and the kitchen smells like lard from my third batch of soap, and I’m fat and my hair’s falling out and I need new clothes…

So how are you today?
