I make my own laundry detergent (really easy - check out the recipe on thesimpledollar.com) and use vinegar in the rinse cycle as a softener (works well and keeps towels absorbent).

We go out to eat/get food out maybe once a month, but it is only as a treat.

It would depend on whether or not the dog wanted to be petted.
26th-Sep-2010 02:44 am (UTC)
Agreed
26th-Sep-2010 09:41 am (UTC)
Same with me.

RE: bathroom question

I'll pee just about anywhere, but I won't poop anywhere but home unless it's urgent.

RE: The Dog question.

Depends on the temperament of the dog - even then I'm likely to ask first before doing so..you just don't know how the dog might react to strangers.

Generally The Boy does the laundry as he works from home. If I need something washed though, I'll just wash it along with any like colors.

I bleach my horseback riding ratcatcher (shirt) and stock tie, along with any other whites that are dirty at the time. We wash our whites with ash greys, so we don't normally use bleach.

I do the whole family's laundry three or four times a week, sometimes more often if needed.

Also, re: bathrooms: If you gotta go, you gotta go. I've never understood people who say they can only go at home. What do you do on vacation, then?

I only pet a dog if it's interested in meeting me.

***I am proud to say that for the past year, I have been making my own environmentally friendly laundry detergent for just PENNIES! works great!

***We go out to eat at a nice place SOMETIMES once a month (just my husband and me). Occasionally, like once maybe twice a month (if at all), we will take the kids to a family friendly place, but only for convenienc, ie we're out at a market for grocery shopping which has a fresh buffet inside. This was not always the case, like when I was pregnant, nursing a newborn, house on the market, which happened back to back. Our immediate area was heavily populated with restaurants, and at that time, sometimes we were going out a few times a week. We moved 2.5 yrs ago and have consistently been following the schedule I described earlier.

***I love dogs, have one, but am generally untrustworthy of a dog I don't know. I do not approach a strange dog, if one approaches me I hold very still, try to look confident, speak to it, then hold out my hand so it can check me out. Any dog that is not alone (usually the case and much less scary), I am interested in petting regardless of breed and/or size, but almost always ask the owner first.

also, re: how often I do laundry
I do the whole family's laundry. Since I stay at home, and we have one of those large energy efficient front loaders (which I've ended up hating :( but that's another story...), I can make it over a week, sometimes getting close to 2 without having to do laundry. But when I do, take a day to wash/dry about 7 loads and later (maybe that day or the next) the kids and I take an hour or two to work together to get all of it folder and put away.

As a commuting college student, I eat out more than I'd like.

Also, I love big dogs so as long as the owner/dog is okay with me petting them, I will pet them. Really. I need a Leonberger in my life. :(

My household uses a fragrance-free/hypoallergenic laundry detergent.

Laundry: the husband does the washing and I do the folding. I believe he uses environmentally friendly detergent and fabric softener.

Bathrooms: generally speaking, I could hold it for eight hours if I had to, rather than use a gas station bathroom. Those are usually the worst. But now that I'm 8.5 months pregnant, I will pretty much go anywhere at any time. I hate that part of pregnancy.

Cell phone: I just have a pay-as-you-go cell phone for emergencies. And a landline at home (which is the only way we can get high-speed internet out in the country at present, aside from satellite).

Fast food: We don't go out for fast food more than once a week, BUT if I'm hungry at work, I will go over to the Student Union and swipe my card, which takes the money directly out of my paycheck. It is way too convenient.

Telephone service: we also have voice over IP (two different companies even!)

I'm more likely to pat a big dog than a small one because I dislike annoying, yappy little things. However, I answered "something else" because I don't often pat other people's dogs, regardless of size. That's mainly because I've been brought up to wash my hands after touching an animal, and I'm stuck with the habit. No bathroom nearby, no patting.

Laundry - a couple of times a week because I do laundry for several people. When I was living by myself/with a roommate, I didn't do laundry that often at all.

Season - Overall, it's autumn, but I love the whole month of December.

Dogs - I'll pet all dogs, as long as they want to be pet.

i dont have a wassher or dryer, so i have to go to my moms house to do my laundry. i try and make it twice a week though. seems like as soon as i get one load done, the basket is filled up again, and theres only two of us!lol

i use all free and clear. my boyfreind has a form of excema, so i have to be careful when washing his laundry.

i rarely go out to eat, but we order pizza every friday pretty much.

i love dogs, especially freindly ones. larger ones make me slightly nervous, if they are excessively hyper.
