HELLO– I’M HOME!!!!!!!

HELLO— I’M HOME— I just checked my e-mail & there are toooooooooooooooo many— can’t get caught up now— got my hair cut this morning— got a good hair cut– feels so good– I needed it badly!!!!! I have been hibernating & growing hair  —- it feel good to get out of my MCS Safe home– & see how the world looks—

After I got my hair cut– we came home & I washed it & curled it— & the we headed to Harrison, Ark. to our favorite health food store Nature’s Wonders– as Chris  (the owner)had ordered us a case of 4 gallon of Dr Bonner’s all natural liquid Castile UNSCENTED SOAP!!!!!!! If we don’t use baking soda– or vinegar then we use Dr Bonners!

It was a beautiful day—- awesome day in the Ozarks– we totally enjoyed the beautiful drive from Branson, Mo. to Harrison, Ark.– & always when we go that way — I have to have Gary drive by Bear Creek Spring & Trout Farm— & I have to take pictures!!! It is kind of like the scenic outlook here at Branson– we can’t go to the store– but we have to stop for me to take pictures– & also of Table Rock Dam— I make the best tourist!!!!!!!!

I don’t ever want to take all of the beauty for granted here in the Ozarks– We love it!!!! I totally enjoy when I’m able to leave my MCS safe home!!!!   I love to take pictures!!! We ate lunch out–in Harrison, Ark. & will probably pay for that– as you never know if you are getting sugar– or gluten & processes foods & chemicals– when you eat out— & probably got a good dose with eating out!!

I got some goodies to decorate the house for Valentine’s day– & when we got home–I started decorating– I’ll find the rest of my Valentines decorations in the storage room later– But I got a good start on it!!!! Before we moved to Branson– we had a 3 story home & I decorated  every room on every floor — for every holiday & the porches also!!! I think it comes from having businesses for so many years & always decorating the businesses for every holiday!!! But when we sold our 11,000 sq ft warehouse full– & our 3 story home full at auction when we sized down– & retired & moved to Branson– I sold most of my decorating goodies!!! Plus– I don’t do what I use to—don’t have the health I once had— plus I went for many many many years like I was killing snakes– & the businesses we had that were 24 hour businesses– like lodging– I think once we  didn’t have all that any more– my body said– ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!!!!

Gary & I are excited for Spring to get here– for a trip to the gulf coast-in our RV–( our MCS safe home on wheels) &- also gardening– & doing some more changes to the yard– also get plants or heirloom seeds started in the green house–  I want a bigger container & raised bed garden this Spring–to raise more chemical free food!!!

Well I need to get out the soup for supper– I’ll down load the hundreds of pictures I took today & share some later—-

And I’ll try to read & catch up on my MCS sisters e-mails from today– there are hundreds of them— so give me some time———  

Here is some — chit– chat & chatter——–

Thank for stopping by my blog——-

Gary & I went to bed this morning around 1:00 AM– & then we were awakened around 5:00 AM-&–cound not go back to sleep—had to be there this morning to get my hair cut— so I may not get all of my MCS Sisters  e-mails answered tonight——I may have to go to bed early!!!!!   🙂   Gary & I want to get started back to going to bed earlier– & getting up earlier– & getting more exercise again!!! BUT today was a long day— beautiful & fun day– but a long one!!!!!!  (AND IT FEELS SO GOOD TO HAVE MY HAIR CUT!!!!)      🙂  I’M HOME AGAIN!!!!——- ( I say this because there are about 70 plus e-mails from my MCS Sisters all saying– ARE YOU HOME YET????????  🙂   hee hee ———I’M HOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  (Hope all my MCS sisters had an awesome day!!! ) Thanks for stopping by———-


About sondasmcschatter

I was encouraged to start a blog as I suffer from MCS /multi chemical sensitivities & other health problems & I have helped several hundred others who suffer from MCS set up "Safe Homes" & given them encouragement & HOPE & share information & lots of laughs along the way also. When you choose to use fragrances, chemicals, or pesticides, You are not simply making a choice for yourself, You are making a choice for everyone around you!!!! What makes me an expert on MCS-- not a darn thing-- BUT have lived with it for years-& years- & have learned lots the HARD WAY-- by experience!! And want to give others help & HOPE & encouragement -- as I know there are not many who understand what it is to live with this illness- & ALL THAT GOES WITH IT!!! Internet has been my way of communication with many who we are confined to their "safe homes" all over the USA & other countries!! I have communicated with many HUNDRED by e-mail-- phone & letters & internet forums-- I hope this blog will help in a better way to share laughter-- hope & information!!! As for many are not any longer able to even leave their homes-- & communication is sooo important & sharing & encouragement & GIVING HOPE!!!

    What RV do you have? And what did you do to make it safe?

  2. Good Morning Kathy—- Gary & I have owned every kind of RV over the years from class A to a really nice converted bus– to 5th wheels– to travel trailers-several class C- mini-homes– & when we retired & moved to the Ozarks– & decided to buy another smaller RV–(as last we had a big 5th wheel)- I knew I wanted a mini-home– as we had -big-Class A motor homes– & I didn’t feel comfortable driving them any more– & I wanted a size that if I needed to drive it– park it– & set it up– it would be one I could handle!!! So we searched for over 3 years– to find a used one– that was in GOOD CONDITION — body wise– motor wise– etc etc etc— & one that was outgassed– & that they had not used chemicals in!!!
    We finally found one– that an older couple had owned– & he was a mechanic-& it had always been kept in their building not out oin the weather— & had taken good care of it— but we looked at probably 500 -or more— that Gary would drive up to & decide we didn’t even need to look inside– to many he would open the door– & know it was something that would not work for us!!! The one we bought was CLEAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! In good condition– & only 29 ft long– so I’m not afraid to drive it!!! But as soon as we got it home– Gary cleaned it really really really well with vinegar & baking soda & Dr Bonner’s & we took down all the curtains– bed spreads– etc etc etc– & we put our commerical air purifiers in it for several weeks– then I recovered all the furniture with antique quilts that were safe– & make it feel really homey–& I love antiques– as we owned antique stores for years & made new curtains out of vintage fabric!! I put denim throw rugs down on the floors– to cover the outgassed carpet– But Gary has bought different — flooring that has been in the storage building out gassing for over 2 years now– so he can lay different flooring & take up the carpet– We put our own matress in — that had been totally outgassed– & covered it with– many safe matress covers– & put our own pillows– & throw pillows– etc etc-quilts— & we don’t use any chemcials in the holding tanks– etc etc– we use all baking soda & vinegar– & this home– has a back bedroom– & a nice sized kitchen & bathroom with seperate shower–& it isn’t real big– like the 5th wheel & Class A’s we have had– but room enough for us– & easy for me to handle if I need to drive!!! BUT– of coarse you can’t buy a NEW RV with MCS– way tooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo many chemcials– so we had to look & look & look & look– if it was nice on the inside & would work for me– & my MCS– it usually was not good mechanically– etc etc– so it took a lot of looking & searching!!!! We looked for an RV– like we look for a home– if we are moving— what has to be done– to make it safe for an MCS safe home– & will it work????? Our RV was a complete life saver for me– when they put the new roof on the house & I did’t have my MCS safe home–also now we can travel– if we didn’t have the RV– we could not go any place for over night– plus we control what we eat– & our animals can go with us–
    Several times emergencies in the family have came up– & the only way we were able to go– was because we had the RV– to control my safe space– & my eating– & etc etc — it has been a total life saver for us!!! Plus Gary & I have always loved to travel– with out our MCS safe home on wheels there is no way we could travel any more!!! My Doctor is back in Kansas– to see him– we go in the RV & stay!!! But we had to search & search & search to find one– that could be an MCS safe home– there were thousands that would not work!!!!!! I hope that helped!!
