Writers Workshop....Theme Word for 2013

I have tried making resolutions in the past and I am really bad at keeping them.  My son said the other day.  Mom I know what winters resolution is.... Me: Oh yeah what's that....Son: To be cold, but you know it's gonna break it because it won't stay cold forever.  
Truer words were never spoken.  So in an effort to NOT break any resolutions I'm going to use a theme word for 2013.

My theme word is Organize.

I am talking everything from my house to my schedule to my children and husband. This sounds monumental; I know.  That's why I am giving myself a YEAR.  I know it will take longer than that but I need to start now or it will never happen.

I'm making a plan and I am going to stick to it.  I found some great inspiration here

Another reason I am back to blogging;  help keep me focused on my goals and THEME.  I plan to talk about my successes and failures so prepare yourselves....

I'm linking up with Mama Kat over at Mama's Losin It

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
