My husband and I researched ways to clean the grout on our floor in our house. We recently purchased a home that had been foreclosed and the previous owner had lots of pets (so we heard) and apparently let them run amuck in the house. The grout is stained with dirt and who knows what else. So we wanted to be able to sanitize and clean them. The entire house is tile, so that means lots and lots of grout to clean. We thought about DIY grout cleaners, but it would take us days of back-breaking labor. 

Many states, including my own, have passed laws that prohibit texting and driving. I, for one, think this is smart. Texting, using your cell phone, or messing around with your radio are some of the many distractions in the car. Screaming kids in the backseat or back talking teenagers are also very distracting. For new drivers and teenagers, distractions are especially relevant, but there certain things you can do to stay focused. .

As we pull out of the parking lot on my child’s last day of school, we turn up the radio and blast “Schools Out for Summer” by Alice Cooper. It’s our tradition, it’s what we do and I’m sure we aren’t alone. I love seeing the smile on my child’s face when they sing “Schools out FOREVER!” She laughs and bobs back and forth while the tune plays on. It’s adorable and fun and I love that we do that every year.
