Thank You Very Much!

The Daily Dribbles

Today I am joining up with Kmama over at The Daily Dribbles.  It is free therapy Thursday.  Go check her out!!

-Thank you very much In-n-Out for finally gracing the northern part of our lovely state.  We are so happy to have you!! (No sarcasm here) But you should have positioned yourself much farther than just 3 small miles away.  I am tempted daily to visit you and consume burgers and fries!!  Thanks for that!!

-Thank you Christmas for staying on the 25th of December even though a few weeks ago I asked you to move to MAY.  I am not prepared and now the anxiety has set in!  (I know I should really be thanking myself!  But why take responsibility at this point?)

-Thank you to my children for making me act like an absolute lunatic this holiday season!  I appreciate all the opportunities to yell and threaten to take away Christmas.  I have threatened to call Santa about 1000 times and it is still not working.  So if any of you have his number I would love to make that CALL!


I'm seconding your request for Christmas to move to May. Of course, I bear no responsibility for being unprepared. I'm not sure who's fault it is, but it's not mine. Of that I'm certain.

I'm so glad we don't have an In and Out. I have enough trouble resisting all the other yummy restaurants!

And never, NEVER take responsibility for being unprepared. It's ALWAYS someone else's fault!

One year I threatened to call Santa so many times Feather finally just brought me the phone. This year I have another approach...When they were bad they wrote a letter to Santa and now I hold it in my little hand at any moment it can be mailed. Seems to be working! ;)
Kmama said…
Ha ha ha. Great thank you's!!

The Santa thing...yeah, it doesn't really work. HOWEVER, once when Buddy was misbehaving (tantruming, actually), I pulled out the video camera and taped him. I told him I was sending it to Santa. He was so scared.

Then, today, on our way to school/work, the radio station I listened to did a Santa scares 'em straight bit where parents called in and talked about how bad their kids were and then one of the DJ's spoke to the kids and pretended to be Santa and threated to not come. It ws hilarious and Buddy was totally freaked out. So now, if he starts acting up, I'm gonna have my brother call and pretend to be Santa. ;-)

Thanks for linking up!!

I call all the time. I just start dialing numbers on the phone so Tayden can hear me pushing buttons and then I hold a one way conversation. It works great! ;)

I would be totally ready for Christmas if I hadn't spent so much time helping everyone else at the last minute. Gah! I'm the last of my sister's who is still a SAHM which means I get a lot of little crisis calls. I'm worn out and it isn't even for my own family's sake.

Side note- I am about 5 miles due east of that In-N-Out but have been wise enough NOT to eat there so as not to develop a taste for it. I haven't tried 5 Guys either. Same reason.

Ugh. I'm not ready for Christmas either! For the love... even with our Elf, I'd had to threaten the kids to call Santa! WHAT is wrong with them?!
Gina said…
And I thought I was the only Mom who threatened to ring Santa!
Why didnt Christmas listen? I would really it to come in May too! But then again, when May rolled around I doubt Id be any more prepared! Great Thank you's!!

Ps If you get Santa's number please send it my direction! K thanks! :P

I am laughing! Thanks for the fun post!

Never been to In-N-Out, but I'm afraid of the guaranteed addiction that I've been promised if they do ever come to the Northwest!

And AMEN on Christmas... where has the entire month of December gone???

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

Firmoo Glasses Review

When Firmoo contacted me about trying out a pair of their glasses I was thrilled.  Although I don't wear glasses my husband does and he is always in need of a new pair.  So we went to their site and picked out a great pair for him to try out. He has been wearing them for about 10 days and he LOVES them.  They fit well, the prescription is correct, and they look great on him.  Well see for yourself. The glasses shipped quickly and safely.  They came with a hard and soft carrying case, a cleaning rag, and mini tools for fixing loose screws or parts.  I loved that because I just thought the tools were really cute!   My husband says the only thing he doesn't love is sometimes after wearing the glasses all day they are a little difficult to clean all the oils off.  But with a little elbow grease they do come clean. I personally think they are very flattering and love how they look.  Of course I am a little biased ;) Firmoo has a large variety of prescription, non-
