Hemp Happy Family

While shopping at Costco the other day, I stopped to taste some Hemp seeds they had out for tasting.  I was extremely surprised by the taste.  They have a nutty texture and puts me in the mind of sunflower seeds.  They also have another taste that I still haven’t been able to pinpoint.

After researching online I found out that they are a Super Food and very healthful to many health problems such as: high blood pressure, diabetes & more.  With a suggested intake of 4 tablespoons a day, I went for it.

In Salad For Hubby’s Lunch

In mostly all of the dishes and drinks that I’ve added the Hemp Seeds to you can either barley taste them or they add a nutty texture.  Hopefully this bag will last us until my next Costco visit.  However, I will be going this week to pick up a bag for my grandmother and if I think they won’t last, I need to pick us up another bag too.

So, have you tried Hemp Seeds? If so, have you noticed any differences in you health?

How To Keep Track of Dispensing Your Child’s Medication

After a very hectic week with Jala being sick and running a very high temperature… I had to find a way to keep track of giving her medication and keeping an eye on her temperature. Watch the video below and find out the solution I came up with. This has been a lifesaver and has kept me sane.

Organizing Family Medications & Nebulizer Machines

If you’re a family that has multiple medications for each family member or one family member has medications to keep up with… here’s something for you.

A couple weeks ago my weekly organization project was organizing our family’s medications.  With a family living with Asthma, I go through our medications seasonally to make sure we have all of our meds, everything is filled and up to date.

Before creating this new system I had everyone’s medications in Ziploc bags.  Every family member had their own bag and they were put in a large tote.

Here’s my new system…

This basket here has our first aid kits, heating pad and misc. medications like cold meds, halls etc.

Like I said we all have Asthma and my two youngest have nebulizer machines.  I used the totes that I originally had all of our meds in and gave each of them a separate box.  Each box houses their machines, accessories and the medication that is used.

image

Inside each box the accessories ( tubes, masks etc.) are in small containers to keep them dust free.  I also found some DVD holders that I placed inside of the box that holds the nebulizer pamphlets.  They stick right inside the box and there if I need to look anything up.  Another thing I put inside of the boxes are sanitizer wipes.  Helpful to give the machines a quick wipe down or those in the middle of the night treatments when you need them at your fingertips.

As for everyone’s personal medications, everyone has their own individual box.

Even NewYork has his own box.  Lastly, I created a chart with everyone’s list of medications on it, dosage and how often they take it.  Now, I’m aware that medications that aren’t taken regularly may get missed on this chart, but keeping up with it can be very beneficial.  Especially if there are any allergic reactions to meds.  These definitely need listing.

My new system for our medications is working out well. Do you have a system to keep up with your family’s medications or need to revamp it?

Home sick, Legos with Grandad & Labor Day

This past Friday my dad and grandma came over to visit before my daughter went back to school.  My youngest had to stay home because she was sick and had some play time with grandad. 

image

The beginning of the week she started having a runny nose. I was hoping we could make it through the week and she’d have the weekend to recuperate.  When I went to check to see if she was dressed for school, she was dressed laying in bed and weazing.  With that being said, staying home was a must.  I began giving her nebulizer treatments and by yesterday she was feeling better.

While my father was over on Friday my daughter wanted to play with her legos.  Before they began playing with the legos my dad told her to wait 30 minutes before they would start playing.  Of course she was anxious and impatient. So, I said, “I bet if I go get your boat he’ll play with you now.”  I went to get her new boat that her dad bought her a couple weeks ago……and my dad’s eyes lit up like he was 5 too. LOL he got up from the couch and started playing with her.

image

I told him that I was getting him legos for Christmas to keep his brain sharp 🙂  They also had a push up challenge and my old man beat them all.

image

My daughter left for Brooklyn to get more knowledge.

image

While NewYork stayed behind living the good life.

Oh and I refused to cook this Labor day and my labor was not in vain.  I went to get us Chipotle and sat up watching The Food Channel all day.

Now, back to life. Back to reality. How was your weekend and Labor Day?

Help Mama Get Fit: Workout week update

Last week’s workout goals were a success!  I went to the fitness center 3 days and accomplished a 30 minute workout each day.  It was straight to the point with no time to play.

This week will be a little different because of the holiday.  More than likely I’ll have to go 2 days in a row due to the fitness center being closed on Monday.

That was my workout week. Quick and to the point. Hope you all have a wonderful Labor Day!
