I'm on a journey to find health and happiness through a more holistic and green lifestyle.

I find the world to be abrasive. =) That is to say, I feel the need to armor myself, physically and emotionally, in order to face life. Don't we all? Maybe. For whatever reason, it has become a priority in my life to rid my immediate environment of irritating things. And I'm sensitive! So there is much work to be done. But. I have thought for a long time that the things I come in contact with every day, and the stuff used to clean and maintain these things, need to be gentle and non-toxic. I have had eczema my entire life. For a long time I just dealt with it, and accepted that sometimes it's bad, and sometimes it's not, and that it will fluctuate a lot. Gradually over time I have come to find that certain things, fabrics, cleansers, materials, are more irritating to my skin than others. Stress can exacerbate it. In more recent times, I have realized that every aspect of my life improves when I improve conditions for my skin. Hah! What a concept! Thus my (long time) interest in going green, and my more recent desire to live a more holistic lifestyle. (I think I've felt a desire for a long time to live in a harmonious way with myself, my surroundings, and nature, but didn't have a name for it.) Anyhow, this blog is a journal of my trials and errors, and basic crooked path to find a balanced and peaceful existence for myself and my family. Thanks for your interest! I would love to hear your thoughts and ideas!

  1. I have been through things similar to this MANY times... and I agree with you 95% :).. Now I am not saying that in this particular situation you are off base but let me say.. that although we know our kids BEST, we don't always know better(and I know that's not what you are saying).. My son's aide has an AMAZING ability to get him to do things I could NEVER get him to do!! Other people see our kids in a very different light...and now I don't trust just anyone's opinion, I'm just saying at SOME point SOMEone may have a little teeny tiny be different view of your child and may actually be able to help them through something that you have not had success with.. :) I am saying all this with tons of love and support sent your way!! And total understanding of where you are coming from!!
