With Hurricane Florence making its recent appearance in the Carolinas, it makes us ever mindful of the fact that we never know when the next hurricane will decide to take a Florida vacation. If that should happen, we wanted to give you some tips regarding the pros and cons of evacuating due to a hurricane.
Some of you reading this may not even remember that old nursery rhyme, but you definitely know what a bare cupboard is. Sadly, throughout Brevard County, many families have bare cupboards or cupboards with just a few basic items left in them. We often get apathetic to such a plight. When we have plenty, we are apt to forget that some have little or none. We can get judgmental thinking that the impoverished should just get a better job or work harder. But, many people are working full time already. How many more hours should they have to work simply to feed their families?
You might be confused by the title of this blog. Well, as promised, it is the follow-up to our laundry blog. Those are just some of the names you might find on the bottles of laundry detergent and fabric softener in the laundry aisle of your favorite store. There has to be more to choosing these items than the smell, right? If only it were that easy, we could breeze down the aisle and grab the first scent that caught our eye, then be on our merry way. In actuality, it takes a little more thought than that.
Does it ever feel like doing laundry is a losing battle? You look at that beautiful, empty laundry basket and feel such a sense of accomplishment. Then, everyone gets ready for bed that evening. You walk past the laundry basket and it’s already at least half full again. You want to raise your fist in the air and cry out, “WHY???” Why does it reappear so quickly? Why does it never seem to end? And, why doesn’t a laundry fairy show up and help? OK, the last one is outside of the realm of possibility, but wouldn’t it be awesome?
No, we aren’t talking about that relative who came for a one week visit and is still on your couch three months later! We are simply using the singular form of that dreaded word…LICE! We know, we know…fear just struck your heart! You may be having flashbacks of a time in your childhood when you were subjected to a thorough delousing after a school outbreak. Or, you may be crossing yourself saying, “Please, not my child!” Whatever thoughts are running through your head, we want to take a blog to address these little creatures since school is back in session and you are bound to get a notice that there are lice at some point during the school year. If you don’t have children, it is still good to know about lice because adults can get them too.
