We Interupt This Blog...

BEEP........

BEEP........

We Interupt this blog for an important message from the National MSS Service. (that would be The National Mom's Surviving Summer Service)

This is a test. This is only a test. If this were an actual emergency the writer would be sitting in the corner, rocking back and fort, humming quietly to herself, glazed eyes and a simple smile on her face.

This is only a test. In order to protect yourself from the above mentioned fetal-like position, please be advised that at the time of this writing......

.......There Are Only 77 Days Until School Starts.

In the case of an emergency of a mental break down, please be advised to stay calm, park your children in front of the TV, try to relax, breath deep, scream into a pillow, take a moment to read a book, The Book, a magazine or a blog, and PRAY. This too shall pass.

This concludes this test of the National MSS Service.

Thank you for the test. Presently all systems are working fine. But I do hear screaming upstairs, so the test may fail at any second.

Glad the test was only a test but often times we will need to take a break and read "the book" and a blog or two for encouragement to face the day,- what ever it may bring. Today my guys brought in a jeep from the sand box. They each took a turn with it in their room and bed. (who knows why) What a mess and they both denied doing it! What a mess!

I think you need to keep the countdown going on the bottom of your blogs! (If not for my sake, for Daughter #1).

I'm sure I could get to that state, and the problem is that I would be surrounded by them and wouldn't be able to escape...ACK!

Fortunately, we have a full schedule today. Unfortunately, I'm probably losing my car in a few days for a new radiator. Can you blog about how to do a full system's diagnostic checkup before I get stuck in my house? (HA!)
