4 Simple Steps to Remove Your Peskiest of Warts in As Little As Two Weeks:

 Have you had a wart that you have tried every treatment known to man to get rid of and it just doesn’t seem to work.
Well, if you are one of those desperate few like me that have tried almost everything. Anything from Compound W, to Duck Tape, to Nail Polish, to Freeze Away Treatments, and even over the counter medications. If everything that you have attempted has not just failed, but didn’t even begin the process of your wart’s decay, than you need left in on a little secret. The secret is not only inexpensive, but it is fast and effective as well and merely painless. Over the course of 4-5 years of fighting with my wart, so to speak, I was just about to give up and accept the fact that I may have to just live with it, when I found that Apple Cider Vinegar is a natural and effective way to remove your warts once and for all.  
This Is All You Need:
1.      Cotton Ball or Paper Towel
2.      Band Aid or Tape
3.      Apple Cider Vinegar
4.      Vaseline

First, you lightly dab the Vaseline around the area wart (ATTENTION: If you don’t use Vaseline you will most likely get sore wherever the Apple Cider Vinegar is applied. Trust me, I tried skipping this part and needless to say it wasn’t such a good idea. So, just keep this in mind). Then, you soak your cotton ball or a small piece of paper towel folded in four into the Apple Cider Vinegar for about 30 seconds or so and then sort of rings it out by pinching your fingers together to ensure that the Apple Cider Vinegar will not leak on the already healthy skin. (REMEMBER: Wherever, you apply the Apple Cider Vinegar it will infect the entire area not just the wart itself. The Apple Cider Vinegar acts as a healing mechanism meaning that it separates and suffocates the unhealthy bacteria from the healthy bacteria. However, the surrounding skin still has the potential to be affected). Next, you take your cotton ball or your small piece of paper towel and apply it to the wart affected area. Finally, you will then take your band aid or piece of tape and place it over the cotton ball or paper towel to hold it in place.
Be sure to change the application at least twice a day. The most important thing about wart removal is consistency and persistency. Which means that you have to see the treatment through in order for the wart to actually receive results, if not the wart could not only grow back, but in some cases even grow larger in size.
Depending on the kind of wart that you have and the size of the wart the process of removal can go maybe even shorter than two weeks. I had a Plantar Wart caused by a Papilloma Virus under the skin and apparently they are supposed to be one of the hardest warts to remove. So if it worked for my wart than it will surely work for yours.    
Now because my wart was on my hand located right at the bottom of and near the crevice of my thumb, I had no choice, but to only apply this at night right before bed. However, if it is on your foot then you have the advantage of wearing the application at all times if desired, just ensure that you wear socks so that the band aid or tape doesn’t come off.
Now be sure to keep in mind that some warts have the ability to be contagious either being skin to skin contact or by skin to object contact. I mention this due to the fact that as you will see below, I had used tweezers to remove my wart because it was just lingering and barely hanging on anyway. Now if you do use an object to remove your wart after it is about ready to fall off, such as tweezers, nail clippers, or just a good old fashioned picking of a finger nail, just keep in mind that whatever you use, clean it with alcohol thoroughly.
My Experience:
Note: After the first night of the Apple Cider Vinegar application my wart seemed to have split in half and the two sides had progressed at different rates.
July 23, 2012 Monday – Day 1: The left half of my wart was a light brown, while the right half was the same shade of white that it was before I ever started the treatment.
July 24, 2012 Tuesday – Day 2: The left half of my wart was a slightly darker brown, while the right half was an off white creamy color.
July 25, 2012 Wednesday – Day 3: The left half of my wart was a medium discolored gray, while the right half was the same color as the day before.

Wart On Day 3:

July 26, 2012 Thursday – Day 4: The left half of my wart was a dark colored gray, while the right half was an even darker shade of white.
July 27, 2012 Friday – Day 5: The left half of my wart was a light shade of black, while the right half was a light shade of brown.
July 28, 2012 Saturday – Day 6: The left half of my wart was a dark shade of black, while the right half was the same color as the day before.
July 29, 2012 Sunday – Day 7: The left half of my wart was a deep shade of black, while the right half was a slightly darker shade of brown.
July 30, 2012 Monday – Day 8: The left half of my wart was the same color as before, while the right half was an even darker shade of brown.
July 31, 2012 Tuesday – Day 9: The left half of my wart was a dark blackish-brown shade. The right half was an even darker shade of brown than the day before.

Wart On Day 9:

August 1, 2012 Wednesday – Day 10: The left half of my wart was a charcoal shade of black, while the right half was a dark shade of black.
August 2, 2012 Thursday – Day 11: Both sides of my wart were just barely hanging on, so I had taken tweezers and I had the ability to pull it off. I then wiped off and cleaned the tweezers with alcohol.
August 3, 2012 Friday – Day 12: The wart was completely gone. However, because they have the ability to grow back if some of the core was left in its previous location, I still had continued to Apple Cider Vinegar.
August 4, 2012 Saturday – Day 13: I had applied my last application of Apple Cider Vinegar just to ensure that my wart’s core was completely gone.

Is It Love? LOL!!

We had homemade macaroni and cheese today for dinner.

Here is the recipe:

Homemade Macaroni and Cheese:

1. 1/2 a box of family sized macaroni noodles
2. 1 3/4 cup milk
3. 1 Pound of swiss cheese block
4. 1/4 cup of flour
5. 1/4 cup stick butter

First, you place the stick butter, the milk, and the block cheese in a medium sized pot. Then, once the cheese and butter is melted you add the flour. The consistancy of the cheese at this point should almost appear a gravy type substance. After you have the cheese complete, place it on a back burner and keep it on a low setting stirring it occasionally with a wisk. Now you will need to cook the macaroni noodles. So, place water in a medium sized pot, making it about half full. Place the water on medium heat, until it comes to a boil. Then you need to add the macaroni noodles. Stir the macaroni noodles consistantly for about twenty minutes. You can check the texture of the macaroni noodles by occasionally chewing on a noodle. After the noodles are done turn you cheese off and strain your noodles. Then, pour the cheese into a large sized bowl and add the macaroni noodles. Finally, let it sit stirring occasionally for about twenty minutes so that the cheese has the ability to sort of thicken, and then it will be finished and ready to serve.


Nan's Cooking is Out of This World!!

Here is my nan's old macaroni salad recipe:

Macaroni Salad:

1. 1 cup of onion
2. 1 cup of celery
3. 1/2 a box of the family sized macaroni noodles (cooked)
4. about 4 tablespoon of mustard
5. about three cups of miracle whip
6. a couple of dash's of paprika
7. a couple of dash's of parsley
8. about 3 to 6 eggs (hard boiled)


I Love This Recipe!!

Here is a Jumble Cookie Recipe that I and my family use quite often mainly around the fall and in the winter. They are really good with a cup of hot coffee or a hot cup of cocoa.

Jumble Cookies Recipe:

1. 2 eggs
2. 1 cup of canned milk
3. 1 teaspoon of vanilla
4. ½ a cup of shortening
5. 1 teaspoon of salt
6. ½ teaspoon of baking soda
7. 1 cup of brown sugar
8. ½ cup of white sugar
9. 2 ¾ cup flour
10. 1 cup of nuts (optional)

Preheat your oven to 350-375. Then mix the ingredients together in a large sized bowl. I usually prefer to add the wet ingredients first, but it’s completely up to you. I skip the nuts ingredient, but I thought that I would add them for those that don’t mind them. Once you have successfully mixed the mixture it should have a rather thick appearing consistency. After you have the cookie batter mixed, grease your cookie sheets and then lightly flour them, bopping off any excess matter from the cookie sheet. Then, you need to place the cookie batter on the cookie sheet about an inch or two apart from each other. Put them in the oven for about 10-15 minutes or until they appear to be a nice golden brown. Wait one minute after you take them out of the oven and then remove them from the cookie sheet. They are now ready to be served.

About Me

I live with my family of eight currently in a small town of Pennsylvania. By the way when I say that I live in a small town I mean so small that you no more and sneeze and you’re through it. I am homeschooled. Yes, I did in fact say the h-word. LOL. I enjoy being educated in the comfort of my own home along side my brothers and sisters and I wouldn't have it any other way. The best part is when we do school in our PJ's on our soft couch or on a picnic blanket in our back yard. I have a multitude of favorite activities, however, if I had to select the top few they would be writing, playing the piano, cooking, baking, listening to music, and hanging out with friends and family. The main purpose of this blog is to justify all of the homeschooled students out there that are rejected because those who attend public school believe that we are unsocialized and unintelligent. It is also to emphasize the fact that we that are homeschooled have just as much intelligence, social skills, education, personality, and character as those that do attend a public and/or private school if not more. To provide public schoolers that treat the "homeschooled" as aliens rather than individuals, just a few pieces of a real homeschooled students life.
