"not me" Monday!

I did not scare this handsome young man to tears last night when I was going to bed and he was coming out of the bathroom.  No "not me" I would never startle any of my children that would be sad and insensitive.  
I have not yet mailed all of my Christmas cards.  "Not me"  I would never delay the mailing of Christmas cards into the new year.  It is also NOT going to cost me $1.27 per CARD to mail with the lovely US postal service because I was not trying to be crafty and make these lovely cards for all our friends and family.   And that has nothing to do with why they have not yet been mailed.

I also have not taken down all my Christmas decorations and then just left them in bins in my front room where anyone who comes close to my front door can see the huge mess.  I would never do anything like that because I am much more organized and neat than that.  In fact I would never be that LAZY!!  Nope "not me".
OH and I also did not run 8.5 miles with my friend on Saturday in prep for my half marathon.  I am not still sore from this run despite my previous 8 weeks of training!!
If you thought this was sarcastic you should go here to see the rest of my "not me" Monday posts!  Then you should head over and visit MckMama and see what other's are NOT doing today.

Brandie, I did the same thing last year. I made cards using my kids thumbprints, and ended up spending $40 some odd dollars just to spread my Christmas wishes. Good job on your run, your awesome!!!

Those cards are awesome! I just mailed out another batch today, and I still have a stack to address and mail. Grr. So much for being on time this year!
This is my first visit, I think! Your kiddos are adorable and those Christmas cards are darling. I'd be thrilled to get one of those even in the middle of January. =) Nice to "meet" you!

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

Yes they are!

Question of the day well actually question of my life time as a mother.... "Are they all yours by birth?"  Um yes, yes they are.  I think they look like me don't you?  Thanks to my friend Peter Loosli for the great photo. I am linking up with Really Are you Serious today for her Mommy and me Monday.  This is an older post so if you want to see what we are up to today click here .
