What's with all the sarcasm lately? I don't know when to believe you or not. Speak about "don't believe everything you read on the web."

I wasn't tipped off until the part about you drowning when trying to rescue the photo albums. I thought, how much water could one hose put out? One time my dad left the water to the pool on and flooded the back yard, but not enough to drown in.


I guess my high cholesterol is clogging my brain.

LAPD's wife if lucky that Big Bad Dad isn't her husband. If he was, she'd be eating alot of rabbit stew. (BBD says rabbit is pretty good. My husband, the hillbilly.)

Ultimate Sacrifices are fictional scenarios in which I die saving my son's life.

Nobody ever gets it. This is probably my last one for a while.

Noooo. Don't give up on Ultimate Sacrifice; they're hilarious. Just put a kicker in the headline that says "fiction." I'll show you how.

Would you also be willing to die for a middle-aged Atlanta mother? I've got several yard eating bunnies sitting right outside my window as I speak, but they're not nearly as bad as the man-eating slugs which keep me and Sydney pinned inside the house once the sun starts to set. If you wouldn't mind coming down and pouring salt along our patio, we would be grateful.

    ... but, y'know, it's kinda hectic. I blog when I can. Right now, my day's divided this way: keep kids from screaming (8 hrs); keep son from killing daughter (6 hrs); avoid diet (4 hrs); sleep (2 hrs); lay awake fretting (2 hrs); give up and Web surf for a while (1 hr); think about waking hubby for sex (1/2 hr); ponder my career options (15 mins); shudder, begin blog post (15 mins); resume efforts to keep kids from screaming ...
