I have breakfast going. The kids are arguing over their "fort" I made from the box the toilet came in. They have destroyed the structural integrity of it so it's going to the dump in a few days. As I guess you can tell, I got busy. We have just finished eating lunch and my daughter discovered she can move the dining room table over to my spice rack... yeah.. Fun times. The internet has also been going out. I tried using my phone as a wi-fi hot spot and the data wasn't available either. Interesting. I did get 2 discussion posts done yesterday. I did my cough syrup lab and I think it tastes really good. I didn't add the glycerin because it was already really sweet so it will expire in 3 days but that's okay. I have diapers going and my son keeps trying to play in the toilet... One needs to flavor the house, the other wants to play in nasty water... At least they give really good cuddles. My daughter last night, while I was eating my dinner, climbed the back of my chair, leaned over my shoulder and said "How are you doing, Mom" I was like "great! How are you!" LOL She tried to say great as well. Got pretty close! I discovered I missed some places with the diatomaceous earth. I was getting attacked standing here again. Not any more. I also discovered you can make a paste with it once you know where they are coming in from so you won't have to worry about vacuuming it up. I have paste by one door now, I need to do the back door but the kids won't let me get it done. It will be finished at nap time. The dining room floor was also covered. Not any more. They made it easy to see where they were coming in from there. I will keep watching to see if they find a new way in. I'm sure they will. They are crafty little demons. LOL
Antirheumatic is obviously the ability to prevent, relieve or cure they symptoms of rheumatism. Hoffman points out here that these are symptoms, not the underlying cause. So, like with pain treatment, this is JUST treatment of the symptom. (Hoffman, 2003, p. 409, 493-494)
I will get this post done today, I promise. The kids got cranky so I rocked them both to sleep then I went outside and gave the ants a nice surprise... I pasted around the base of the back door then got a shower. Now my daughter is awake.... I'll leave this here and try to make more progress tomorrow.

I am currently a student at American College of Healthcare Sciences earning my Masters of Science degree in Herbal Medicine. This blog is my journey of juggling mom-life with student life. My husband is a truck driver so I'm essentially a single mom all but 3 days a month. It's a challenge but we will get through this. I complete this degree on 18 December 2019 and will take one additional semester and then be done for a while. My children need more attention from their mommy but I can't wait on getting this education done. I will do what I must for now.
