Letters of Intent

Today I am joining Julie from Foursons. I would put her cute button on here but I am having link issues so until then just click  on her blog title and see what others are saying too!!

Dear Strep,
I realize that you love me.  I have noticed that you enjoy being here in this nice warm environment but I DO NOT have time for you.  I am a busy mother of three young children who need me.  I also have several goals to accomplish this month and I am being held accountable by my blog readers so I am going to need you to leave this time for good and please do not return or I will have to do something drastic like remove my tonsils!  I don't want to have surgery so get out and stay out!!  Thank you for your understanding.

OH! I had to have my tonsils out at the age of 29 because of strep! I totally feel for you! Get better soon!
R Clan said…
LOL I feel your pain...literally! I say ditto to your letter!
Cynthia said…
Awh man! Sorry you are sick. Moms seriously do NOT have time for this- especially the next couple of months. Hot Lemonade is your friend- it really helps that 'hamburger throat' feeling.
Tara said…
Cynthia said Hot Lemonade...I had never heard that before.

I hope you get better soon! Moms really don't get time off for being sick. Hope you are being well taken care of.

Oh how awful! I hope you get better and stay better too. Healing from tonsil surgery as an adult is so much worse than as a child. Not sure why, I just know that my ENT filled me in on that tidbit.

Thanks for linking up, I hope your tonsils take your letter seriously!~
Brandi said…
Ugh... I think as moms we should be immune to illness. It's really hard to take care of the kiddos when you feel like crap. Hope you feel better soon! :)
Gosh, it's so hard when we don't feel well. Hoping for a quick recovery.

I sure hope your tonsils got the message too and stop making strep throat feeling at home! YUCK! I still have my tonsils but my Diva had hers out when she was two and it was awful & I hear its worse the older you are. Gosh I am a pocket full of sunshine ~ I didn't mean to scare you, just hoping you get better soon!!
Melissa said…
Ouch. Feel better soon! Great letter!
Kmama said…
Oh, that is terrible. I'm so sorry you are sick!!

i used to get tonsillitis and/or strep a couple of times a year, until my doctor threatened to take my tonsils out. i didn't get it for years! after that. i have only had it a few times in my adulthood. knock wood, because strep and tonsillitis SUCK!

great letter! :) who has time to be sick? i have stuff to do!
I had strep all the time as a child-- it even morphed into Scarlet Fever (what Helen Keller had!) twice! I never got my tonsils out... how, I don't know... but last week, I swore they needed to be removed!

I hope that nasty strep leaves you-- and your family-- alone!

So sorry! I've had strep a million times and it is so much worse when you have MOM things to do!

Hope you're better soon!

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

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
