I thought I would stray a second, because I had to share this very funny little happening. I need a little funny right now and that means you do too.
I wear makeup (that’s not the funny part – or maybe it is). The mascara I wear is pretty hard to get off. I also suffer from a little acne immediately upon turning 35. I did some research and found that I am allergic to parabens which eliminates a lot of skin products. Enter the Oil Cleansing Method. Basically, it’s based upon your skin type. For me, I use half castor oil and half olive oil. It works. Really well. It removes my crazy, awesome, only-thing-that-makes-my-flat-lashes-curl mascara while simultaneously calming my irritated skin.
Stay with me. I’m just laying the groundwork…
During our most recent move, I had a bottle of this homemade goodness in my shower for easy access when washing my face. I think, the hubs thought it was just another empty bottle and tossed it. That’s totally fine. I would have done the same.
I haven’t had a chance to buy another container for it, so I used an old glass Goya olive oil bottle and just made my mix. It’s been in my shower for a few weeks because I keep forgetting to buy a new bottle for it.
My husband made my favorite last night. Espaghetti. I’ve mentioned it before. It’s a spaghetti with meat sauce and extra Spanish goodness that only he knows how to make.
After dinner, I go to check the boys backpacks per my usual. I check their backpacks every night for Mommy homework – you know those forms with emergency names and backups for the back up names, your shoe size, and blood type? I check for those and any drawings they made throughout the day.
On the kitchen counter I see a Goya olive oil bottle on the counter.
Me: Honey, please don’t tell me you used this.
Husband: Yeah, I did for the pasta so it wouldn’t stick.
Me: And also a colon cleansing. It had castor oil in it.
An hour later…
Husband: My stomach feels off.
Me: the feelings evoked in this image.
Happy Feast of St. Augustine. I found this and thought it matched really well with with today’s post. Enjoy!
