Thing Two (and a camera shy Thing One) were eager to try camping. Us parents having been there/done that found a compromise. They could camp in the back and we would sleep inside in the comforts of our king sized bed. Win-Win (except nobody really got much sleep...we forgot to turn off the sprinklers and we were a bit on the hyper vigilant side waiting for that middle of the night cry to come inside...which never happened but how were we to have known that?)

I had an easy explanation for the past 2 weeks of limited domestic accomplishments: BEIJING.
But now? Anyone got some plausible explanation for why the dishwasher didn't get unloaded and laundry didn't get folded? And well...let's not even talk about how the vacuum cleaner canister rolled down the stairs and left a trail of its' contents in the path yesterday is STILL sitting there today. A day later my only comment has been "Boys, be careful on the steps, Mom made a mess".
Feeling so very UN-Martha this week....

I've been one slug of a housewife this week as I've watched way too much Olympic coverage. But one thing we've enjoyed almost as much as the events, were some of the commercials during the Opening Ceremonies.
This one made us all giggle...because well, we've all been there, right?
I challenge all my other Olympic crazed bloggin' buddies to go find your favorite commercial (they have everything on You Tube...even the awful pick up truck fiasco from the Atlanta games...when we all cringed thinking "Is this the best that we've got to show the world?") and share it with us.
For we have only another week or so where we can excuse our lazy ways on the Olympic Games!

0805: Oh Hi, TZ! Enjoying your last few moments of summer break before nursing school starts back up?
And look, here's JG and SB. They don't blog but they could. They are good people with fun stories to tell. 0930: Say what you want, I'm a good wife (making a parts run for theBrigitta, she's getting a new windshield1030: Yeah, he's been in the same location for the 10 years we've used Ed. Jones but somehow today I got lost (traveling around Cherry Hills. Them is some pretty fancy houses in that 'hood!).
11:45: Seems I caught every stinkin' one of these today (red lights)
1200: You can barely see the sign on the fence but today was election day...primaries for us. Slow day, all the helpers seemed to clamor around me....as if I were the only one to pass through in hours. I'm sure November will be a different story.
1300: In the category of sometimes it is the little things that make you happy. How 'bout that new four way stop sign? Could have used it when the Things were younger and crossing at this point in the road was a risky proposition. Eager to see how many high schoolers they nab when they start zooming through it once their school starts back up. KaChing Kaching: the sheriff should make his quota with tickets!
1515: 3rd grader....you know what that means. Endless attempts at Hot Crossed Buns...or whatever that squeaky tune is they play over and over.
1930: These goof balls decided to share the shower and conserve water. Crazy things (but clean)
2000: Sometimes you just need a little more potty humor to quiet your mind at the end of a long day!

For example, I loved when Facebook asked me to be friends with Dom Chang and then proudly announced we were friends. That's good because you know...we've been sleeping together for oh about 14 years (shh...yeah, I know I haven't even been married 13 years, don't tell my dad, ok?)
I just read where Facebook has announced that Jason Zimmer is now married. That's good to know: since he's got two kids and a woman named Maria Teresa who sort of has been telling all of us that they've been married since, oh, I don't know...dinosaurs roamed the earth?
And should I be jealous that this same Tracey is "now friends with Jen Hendricks". What am I? Chopped liver? Because come on, we all know that Jen is really Mrs. Kravitz. And would you put someone's picture up on your blog if she weren't your friend?
Yikes: I suppose I have caught a bit more of the Facebook addiction than I care to admit...off to see if anyone has written on my wall or sent me a sea garden creature. And well, if you want to be my friend, just ask...I'll probably say yes (unless you are that exchange student from Taiwan that goes to school at my alma mater. He's like young enough to be my kid. I had to decline his kind invitation to be his friend)
