"not me" Monday!

I am not awake right now writing this post because I can't sleep.  You want to know why I can't sleep?  Probably because I did not take a nap at 6:00 p.m. while my kids did not tear up the house.   Oh and my husband was also NOT dozing on the couch right next to me.  And then I did not drink an entire Diet Coke right before I went to lay down for the night because that would just be ridiculous!!

Other things I did not do this week....  I did not stay inside my warm house while my sweet neighbors came over and shoveled the foot of snow out of my driveway so I could be on-time for church.  That is just rude why wouldn't I put on my warm clothes and at least just go out and offer to help.
I am sure I could go on but why not just click here to see my other "not me" Monday posts and then go on over and visit MckMama and see what others are NOT doing today!

should of had a pepsi so deserve it! Who drinks an entire COKE before bed? That's ok I drank a cup of highly caffeinated tea before bed the other day and ended up getting out of bed and folding laundry until I was so bored I could fall asleep! kim

Cafiene before bed? I would never do that! Not me!! :)

Thanks for visiting my blog and you not... not leaving a comment!!

I am *always* ready for a nap at 6pm (especially on weekends), yet I know that doing so will completely ruin my old-granny-style bedtime. LOL on the Diet Coke!

Holy Cow, I took a nap at 6:30pm last night too... but I didn't drink a coke when I got up, because I didn't get up till 5am this morning. (Yikes!)

Ah well, all mommies deserve naps now and then. :)

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 longer effective due to …

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.....

Fun Christmas Crafts for Kids

I am kind of a crafty person.  I am not good at coming up with my own crafts but I am really great at copying others work and making it my own with my own little touches.  So when my friend recommended I try making toilet paper snowmen I jumped all over that idea.  My kids are on year round school and we are off track right now and I am desperate to entertain them.  I took my question to Pinterest and found this great idea.  I then ventured to Hobby Lobby and our mission was underway.

We also went to Target and got the cheapest TP available because I didn't want to use my expensive super soft kind for a craft (I know call me crazy but I'm weird about my TP).

2 Rolls of TP per snowman
jewels or buttons for eyes and mouth
black pom poms for the front "buttons"
orange pom pom for the nose
ric rac ribbon for the hat
ribbon for the scarf
ribbon to tie around end of hat
snowflake or pom pom for hat
felt sheet for hat (we used black)
white broadcloth to wrap around TP rolls
