I'm unpacking my suitcase and my special little quart size, zip top bag of 3 oz. toiletries because CBS called me today with the news that my segment is postponed indefinitely. I'm sure those are the words she used, but in my mind, I heard, "Don't call us, we'll call you. You stink. We don't want you on our show."
Oh well, as always, I believe things happen for a reason so it's all good. Disappointing, yes, but meant to be. Perhaps, if it's rescheduled, I'll finally be over this stupid cold. It probably wouldn't go over too well if I coughed up my lung on live national TV anyway.
I have an announcement to make! I'm toying with the idea of starting another blog solely for product/website reviews with free giveaways every week. What do you think? Take my poll to the right and let me know. ----->
My youngest son is on to me. My older boys like to play video games now and then. They go in spurts. They'll play nonstop for a couple weeks until they tire of it and then they'll go equally as long without playing a thing. It's actually really nice when they're on a video game run because that becomes an effective punishment. "No, you don't have to clean your room. The choice is up to you, but you can't play video games until you choose to clean up." Mua ha ha!
Anyway, when my two oldest play, my little guy always wants to join in. Instead of watching him throw himself to the floor in a fit until he spontaneously combusts, we pretend to hook up a controller for him and let him "play". He's cluelessly "played" along for a good year. Until today. I think he now gets the concept that's he's not really "driving" the car on the screen.
"Why won't the car turn? I keep crashing! I want to use his thing!" indicates his brother's controller
I'm off to go supervise the middle kids in their mission to clean up the puddle of glue off the garage floor.
"Why did you guys put glue on the garage floor?"
"I don't know."
"Really? You don't know why you did that?"
"Well, I wanted to make bird poop out of glue."
"Makes perfect sense."
I wrote tonight's post out earlier today so no, I don't really let my little ones stay up until 10:30 at night to clean glue out of the garage. Are you kidding? I generally count down the minutes until bedtime around here!
