Why I broke up with my blog......and why I'm back

So people who know and LOVE me realize my intense competitive nature.  I'm not proud of it but it's true.  I want to win, I want to be the best at everything I try, and I put my all into MANY things at once and then usually don't finish any of them.  This tends to burn a person out.......So I was blogging away and I got discouraged because I wasn't the best; shoot I wasn't even close to the best.  I was trying to be all professional but I didn't really have a BRAND.  Well beside my red scarf I was just me, a mom trying to make it work.  I'm not saying this is a bad thing.  Actually it's a good thing.  I love being a mom and a nurse and a wife.  It's who I am, it's what I do best; it's me.  

But I was tired of feeling like I wasn't AWESOME at everything so I broke up with my blog.  Now I feel bad I broke up with my blog.  I miss it, I miss my online friends, I miss the insight it gives me into my life, into motherhood, and how we are all so much alike and also so different.  

So expect to see more of me.  More of my crazy "Rukus" and of course more of these little people who aren't really that little any more.....

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
