Is My life always going to feel this crazy?

Last week seemed like it was 6 years long.  It started with my husband leaving town on Sunday and then ended with my dad going home from the hospital, a dance recital, a flag football game and a photo shoot.  I was thinking I could have crammed a few more things in but I thought I would save them for this week.  


These were fun to shoot.  It was a great game and the team played really  well.  I of course only made it after half time.  I was gathering supplies for the photo shoot.  This is one of many great pictures.
See more fantastic shots here.  My amazing friend/babysitter Wendy did an awesome job as usual.  She also took pictures at the dance recital when I have those I will post. It was a joy to watch.  My youngest daughters class stole the show!  I was so very proud; as a mother should be.


We ended the day yesterday enjoying the beautiful weather and watching the kids enjoy the trampoline.


Thank goodness we had one day of rest so as to gear up for another crazy week!  Do you ever feel like your life is too crazy?  What do you do to help you slow down?  Go here to discuss in my community.

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
