Lest I Forget...


So the slacker that I am I nearly let my mother's Birthday slip my mind.  So I just spent the last 30 minutes sorting through 800 million digital photos and seriously I have um two of her with her eyes open not pointing or wearing attire specific to Christmas morning.  Just kidding mom.  I feel like you will absolutely approve of this chosen photo, and since it is YOUR Birthday and you can cry if you want to (please don't there is nothing to cry about)  I wanted it to be aesthetically pleasing to you.  I love that word I hate to tell you that I learned it because that is how they describe the flooring in the new hospital.  But I looked it up in the dictionary and it means : as pertaining to beauty.  Which to me you do or are.  It isn't all about how you look but how you act and what a great mother you were and are and what a fantastic grandmother you are.  You wear many hats and we love and respect all you do whether you think we do or not.  I feel I speak for all your children (including those that married into the mess) when I say we LOVE you and hope you have a really great birthday.

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

A Quick Poll

So I have been reading a LOT lately about how dark backgrounds with light text are difficult to read for many blog readers.  So I changed my blog.  I am not sure that I LOVE it but if you would leave a comment and let me know if this is a little friendlier to your eyes I would appreciate the feedback.  Thanks! Don't worry about offending me I can take corrective criticism I am asking for it here.  Post edit: So I took your advice and lightened up the grey.  I tried white background and it just wasn't as calming to me.  So hope you all like my new look.  Thanks for the input I appreciate it!
