A Good Cause

My sister-in-law is very thoughtful, always has been.  Thinks of things I would never dream of.  She found this blog and I read it and cried and quit looking at it.  Not her she added it as a link from her blog and is now making quilts for the children.  Go here to learn more  Please donate if you can.  It is such a great cause and I know we could all use the blessings from the service.  Please spread the word and feel free to link from your blogs to the site or my sis-in-laws blog HERE .  Thanks for taking the time!!

The world is small after all. I started reading the blogs posted by both sisters. I was very much touched by the ordeal that these families and their children are going through. We see this struggle from the other side, the caregiver side and it is very hard not to connect with these families and their prayers become your prayers.

What I realized after reading C jane run is that she is my age. Then I realizd that she was from Provo, I grabbed my yearbook and we graduated the same year from Provo High. My thoughts are with Courtney and her family and I hope for a full recovery for her sister Stephanie and brother-in-law Christian.

How to get Urine/Sweat stains out of your Mattress

If you have kids you have pee stains I know it.  If you don't lucky you or you are a liar and in denial.  I have pee stains on more than one mattress.  I also have sweat stains on pillows because well I sweat a.lot .  It's a gift I know. I digress. Anyway I have tried many different ways to get urine/pee out of mattresses and I have been very unsuccessful so I did a google search and what do you know?  Another mom had pee stains too.  So I borrowed her recipe and it totally worked so I am sharing it with you. All you need are these few house-hold ingredients and a spray bottle.  I bought a really expensive one (NOT) I used one I had for my kids hair.  It worked great. You will need: 3 Tablespoons Baking Soda 8 ounces Hydrogen peroxide 1 drop dish soap Mix together well and use right away. My mom discovered that if it is not mixed well the baking soda will clog the sprayer.  You also can't store this apparently it doesn't last in the bottle and it is no longe

Yes they are!

Question of the day well actually question of my life time as a mother....

Master Bedroom Makeover Board and Batten

 I highly recommend a few items although you don't HAVE to have them it just makes this project go so much faster.  I bought a pancake compressor with three nail guns included saved me on this project and a miter saw.  I bought both from Home Depot and they didn't pay me to say that it is just where I happen to shop.  I actually had this all measured out and went to Home Depot and they cut the mdf primed boards for me.  However I later purchased the miter saw and was then able to cut things right here at my house.  The nail gun I used is a 16 gauge gun that can shoot nails up to 3 inches.  I used a 2.5 inch nail to cover the thickness of the board and wall. Ok so I recommend deciding how you want your boards spaced first and measure and mark on the wall where you want them.  I tried to do every 16 inches because that is how far apart my studs were but then I realized my wall wasn't an even length and so I have some that look a little off on the ends.  Lesson learned
