Most of us don’t think about cleaning our washing machine because we assume that when we put laundry detergent in, that it would clean our washing machine. I mean after all if it cleans our clothes it should clean our machine.
Sadly, that isn’t the case. By cleaning your washing machine, you prevent weird stains on your clothes.
I usually remember to do this when I am doing my spring or fall cleaning.
It is very easy to do with a top loader and front loader.

Being a mom with a chronic illness isn’t easy. Nightly you worry that you will let your children down by being too sick to do something the next day. What if you get sick and end up back at the hospital? So many what ifs that you worry about in your own mind.
When I found out I had kidney failure, my biggest fear was that I would leave my children without a mother. My father passed while my mother was pregnant with me. Even now at 38, I wish I had a chance to get to know my dad.

(At the time Hayley was 11 and Spencer was 7.) Even now thinking about all this, I have tears fall. I remember the fear I was feeling like it was yesterday.

Growing up in a big family, we often had to be tight with food. My parents did their best but there were times when there wasn’t enough food in the house to help us to have good nutritional meals.
I often found myself not able to concentrate on school work in the morning because I would be counting down the time for lunch when I could run home and eat because I often didn’t have breakfast.
Now what if I could tell you that if you skip one morning coffee on the way to work, or didn’t buy that bag of chips, you could pay for a nutritional meal for a child?
Really it is that simple. A Toonie.
I am happy to assist The Grocery Foundation with getting the word out about the Toonies for Tummies program. This is a program that is near and dear to my heart.
