Bug Spray, Homemade Eco-Friendly: Preparing Home For Fall

Bug spray can be costly and the odor can linger. No need to worry I can show you how to save a little money and keep your family safe with this simple and efficient bug/spider spray.

Here in Chicago spiders and bees are the worst. For the past  two week spiders have been making their way into my house and  I am not happy.  I have a toddler that thinks anything he sees crawling is his playmate. So I am on mission to rid my home of those crawly devils.

I thought that having a prompt would be make it easier to blog every day, but honestly it is only making me think. (Queues laugh). I mean seriously, the last thing I fixed or built? I have no idea. Does building a castle or truck out of Mega Bloks count for anything?  Sorry I am not a fixer or a builder. I have unclogged the toilet a time or two, but I am definitely not Mom the Builder.
