Oh this one, she’s been a kind soul to me this weekend.  Which is just what I needed.  This weekend wasn’t particularly interesting.  Had a couple of major melt downs, due to frustration, and otherwise the weekend was filled with lots of homework.  But because of that, I have decided to show you all the benefits of Eucalyptus :)

  1. I had no idea about all this!
    Sorry you had such a stressful weekend, but that’s what pets are for, right? I’m sure she did as great a job as Taylor would have done comforting you… Well, that’s probably not true, ha, but still, pets are the bomb.com.
    I would totally try the eucalyptus in the shower! I’m all about showers being relaxing – I usually HATE them.

    • It’s ok, it just made me realize how much I really want this. Hahahaha she did the best she could ;) that’s exactly how I am! I’m in and out within 5 minutes, literally.
