Now, whose bright idea was it to do this just before Christmas?
In a couple of weeks' time they get two more weeks off, so couldn't they have spaced it out a little? No, let's give the kids a whole week off when the weather stinks, and the Christmas holidays are just around the corner...what a great idea! They have nothing to do, and can't go outside, so they invent things (which you should never let kids do, unless you're prepared for some damage). If it's dirty and messy, trust me, they'll think of it. Our house looks like a hurricane has hit it, and the kids are so wired that if I touch them, I risk being electrocuted.
But so far it hasn't happened and the house is still standing, so while I'm busy
And, if you're really feeling like spreading some holiday cheer, then vote for me over at Diesel's Caption Contest. Santa will really love you if you do...okay, he won't...but I will!
2012 update: Oh, how I miss the good old blogging days...The Quill Driving competition no longer exists, but you can still visit Diesel, although he's not at Mattress Police anymore. And Central Snark is still around, but not being updated, although it's still a good read if you've never been there.
