Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Prodigal AoM returns home

Yes, yes my kittens. I have fallen off the blogging train and been a bad bad blogger. Something called life got in the way. Deadlines for work, interviewees standing me up for phoners, kids starting school, volunteering myself to be the team mom for the academy soccer team, you name it ... it has happened this week.

I took my computer hard drive to the IT dude to clean it. The damn trjoans/viruses/whatever finally pissed me off to the point that I unhooked the damn thing and carried it to him. So, I'm relegated to the laptop, which gives me hand cramps when I write for too long.

I even had the Cowboys versus the Vikings on TV last night and I didn't blog about it ahead of time. MyVikes fans are very happy. I even found a Vikings T-shirt for my boy to wear to school today. His friends were teasing him yesterday that the Vikings were going to lose, so I can't let the child go to school without reminding them that the Vikes second string beat down the Cowboys second string in the preseason game. :) He has a Vikings lunchbox, too, that his dear aunt sent to him. He loves it!

Anyway. I will try to be a better blogger. Try being the operable word. Tomorrow, we have Anime Fest, so good God above, there are all sorts of opportunities for blogging and even some shots to send to V the K at Caption This (if you haven't been, go to my blogroll and visit, it is a hoot).

Ok, and now for another of the 511 Things Only Women Understand:
How to fold laundry correctly
and a bonus one
How to pack the trunk of the car correctly

And a joke to send you off this Labor Day weekend:
Jack wakes up with a huge hangover after attending his company's annual holiday party. He is not normally a drinker, but he tied one on and didn't even remember how he got home from the party. As bad as he was feeling, he wondered if he did anything stupid.

Jack had to force himself to open his eyes the next morning. The first thing he sees is a couple of apsirin next to a glass of water on the side table. Next to them, a single red rose. He sits up and sees his clothing in front of him, all clean and pressed. He takes the aspirin and cringes when he sees that he has a huge black eye staring back at him in the mirror. Then, he notices a note hanging on the corner of the mirror written in red with little hearts on it and a kiss mark from his wife in lipstick:
"Honey, breakfast is on the stove. I left early to get groceries to make your favorite dinner tonight. I love you, darling. Love, Jillian"

As he stumbles to the kitchen, he notices the house is sparking clean. When he gets to the kitchen, there is his hot breakfast along with steaming hot coffee and the morning newspaper. His son is at the table eating and Jack asks him if he knew what happened last night.

"Well, you came home after 3 a.m. drunk and out of your mind," the son says. "You fell over the coffee table and broke it and then you puked in the hallway. You got the black eye when you ran into the door."

Confused, Jack asks his son, "So, why is everything in such perfect order and so clean? I have a rose and breakfast is on the table waiting for me?

His son replies "Oh, THAT. Mom dragged you to the bedroom and when she tried to take your pants off, you screamed 'Leave me alone! I'm married!'"
