A Random Post


I don't love the Oscar's.  I usually get all up in arms about something that Sean Penn says and then I get mad and it ruins the whole thing for me.  But last night I was smart.  I purposely watched something else so I could fast-forward anyone I didn't want to see or hear.  This woman I could have listened to all night long.  I thought she was so genuine.  She was so excited it was making her sick (she was short of breath).  Those are the kinds of people who deserve this prestigious award and I am so glad she won.  

I also think that Sandra Bullock is amazing.  I have always loved her in all her movies she is so cute and real.  I was so happy she won for the role she played in "The Blind Side"  I loved that movie.  I cried like a baby.  There is nothing greater than a mother's love.... right?



Then I ruined my lovely Oscar night by watching the local news.  Seriously why would I do that you ask? Not sure but I realized that I need to get in gear and make sure that when state Representatives get on the news and make a blanket statement about the "general public"  they better be more well informed.  We (and by we I mean me) are not going to be understanding when you take things away from our children.  We are not going to stand by and watch you take away OUR public education and our American dream.  So don't assume EVER that we will in any way understand that.  I will not stand for it or understand it.
I got the pictures of those lovely ladies from abcnews.com/entertainment.  Thanks!!

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
