Update 2

Things are going pretty good down here... inventory is damn near done. Next week, we may be running. Then it'll really be nuts. Well, at least until I go home. Hopefully we can get some help before then.

I finally have been able to hook up with some bloggers, and will meet with more in the next couple of days. That may be it until I head home.

Anyway, I've gotten to hook up with Tammi and Carmen, RSM, and soon, Lee Ann, with Boudicca and VW this weekend. I'm looking forward to it. All. I'll tell you guys more when I've got more time.

On to important stuff...

Just saw a commercial for a paper towel, where some little bastard finds a rubberband ball and bounces it in the kitchen, and it proceeds to take off like a superball, knocking over glasses, and other containers, spilling their contents everywhere. Mom just walks in, shrugs, smiles, and heads for the paper towels.

Does anybody really do that? Moms?

Maybe I grew up different than most, but there never was a smile on mi madre's face when I made a big mess. And I was usually the one who was made to clean it up.

Paper towel kids have it so easy these days...

Nope, in fact Ktreva and I make fun of all commercials like that.

I'd kick my kids ass if he did something like that...I certainly wouldn't smile at him while I clean it up! I'd be more apt to throw the roll of paper towels AT him and tell HIM to clean it up!

everything i own has already been glued back together at least once, so yeah, i'm sorta like the mom you describe, only more shell shocked.

it does make the all linoleum seventies seem more sensible though. kids and carpet just don't mix.

when is your tour bringing you back blown star way?

Wow. I think my head twists 8 times and green crap spews forth in a projectile like fashion from my mouth when I my kids do stuff like that.

I often wonder about the moms in those commercials. I'm not June Cleaver, the boy cleans his own messes!

I'm not even a Mom and I have issues with that commercial.

Oh - and what do you mean.."On to important stuff"? Meetin'up with us bloggers isn't important?? Huh?!

Geez - I see where we rank.

We're way beyond papertowels. We're into spackle and paint and we better patch it before mom gets home.

What Bou said. There would be no "shrug and a smile" at my house either...

Depends on my mood. Most often, I yell to find out to WHOM the blame belonged. Then the guilty party cleans it.
Other times, it's just quicker and easier to do it myself.
