Making it Through Motherhood , Supported by Poise #ad

        Many thanks to Poise for sponsoring today's story, and keeping me confident! Lets face it, motherhood changes so many things about us. Some are good like, giving us patience and the ability to love without fail. Some however..............we'd rather do without. You know what I'm talking about ladies and it isn't just stretch marks ;). I always thought that when I was finished having children the urge to always have to go and the occasional cough, sneeze..........oopppss......would fade. After nearly 7 years since my last child I find those moments still hanging around from time to time. 
          
       A little while back I met a friend who has saved me from more then one embarrassing moment, SAM. Now this friendship started out like many others, I was online one day and saw a free sample chance and thought.....Hey what a better way to try out this product and see if I like it! I know what you're thinking......Ummmmm......crazy lady, your new friend came as a free sample.lol Let me tell you a little more about SAM. SAM is a revolutionary new Super Absorbent Material from Poise. Some of you may be familiar with Poise already, they have a great line of products for LBL(light bladder leakage). Now I know it is hard to face and really no one likes to talk about it, but if there was a way to help keep you from those occasional embarrassing moments, don't you want to hear about it. Poise new super thin liner is perfect for every day use. It is discreet and easy to use, and will help keep you dry all day long. 
       Now I have to tell you, while I love them for every day use I find they come in handy most around my period, when leakage seems to be worse for me. Not only do I find they are great for LBL but also as an every day liner. They absorb so much bet, and last so much longer throughout the day then my old brand. Hey what can I say SAM multitasks in this house............now if only he did dishes.
       Do you suffer from LBL?? You can meet same to.........go here for your free sample :)

Homemade Fly Traps

We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back out.lol

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need:
2 Cups of Sugar
2 Cups of Water
1 Package Sugar Free Jello
A candy Thermometer

Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I like to dust mine …

Killing Ants Safely

LOL okay I know the title seems a bit silly. Here is West Texas ants are a BIG problem. Not only do they bite, but well they are really annoying! They sneak into every crack in your house no matter how hard you try. With pets though you are very limited to the products you can safely use to kill ants. As time goes on more and more I am concerned about the products I keep in this house and the effect they have on not only me and my children, but my pets. When looking for ways to rid myself of these pests I found a simple, cheap, and effective means to do so. CORNMEAL! Yep it is very simple, for about $2 a bag I can treat weekly for an entire year! While it doesn't kill them all it has certainly brought down the population so that now it isn't even noticeable. All you do it sprinkle it on top of their mounds and watch the greedy little ants drag it all inside! When eaten it expands and POOF! ;O) You get the picture.
