Things that get in the way.....

One of the keynote speakers at CBC 2010 was Matt Townsend.  I like to call him a relationship comedian.  And I just name people what ever I want because I am cool like that.  He spoke about his program Feeding the Starved Marriage.  I thought he was amazing.  He made me laugh about things that get in the way of having a GREAT marriage.  He calls them smoke.  He said that generally marriage satisfaction goes down 20% per child.  So basically I am 60% less satisfied with my marriage because of something I grew.  There is really nothing I can do about that except make the best of it, one reason I pay an exorbitant amount of money for very  qualified babysitters. 


He also talked about a lot of things that get in the way and I was so happy that of the long list he mentioned only one or two were on my list.  Which made me realize that I have a great marriage.  Okay I actually already thought that but it is always nice to have someone validate that.  Someone that is an "expert"!  So I included this video so you can see why I was laughing so much.  He of course related it to BLOGGING for us cause well that's what we do.


Want to discuss this with me head on over to my BlogFrog Community.





I just really like what Matt had to say I was not compensated in any way for this post!

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
