What a day

This has been quite a day. I woke up this morning sore because my back really needs adjusted, but who has the time or the money...not I. I sneak downstairs (as not to wake up the Zoey monster) and what do I find......the Bailey monster has struck again. In the midst of rushing to get out the door this morning, someone left the bathroom door open. Now mind you, he may be cute as you will see, but he loves his trash, especially the coveted bathroom trash.

See, I said he was cute, but let me tell you he is a chewer. He will chew anything he can get his mouth on...trash, toys (I'm not talking about his here) and he doesn't hide them like he used to, now he just tends to destroy them. So after checking email Zoey monster wakes up and the fun really begins.

I have to get breakfast for her and hopefully a Nick Jr show so I have some peace and quiet for a moment. Of course the show chosen was Backyardigans, which is not a bad show, but she wanted the one on On Demand that I think we have watched 20 times this week already (OK, small exaggeration here, but you get the picture). Did I mention that we have watched this a bunch this week, like I know all the lines to the show and its an extended one that's almost an hour long? So I start this and sit down at the computer with my own breakfast, yup all American family eating in front of the computer and

After breakfast I must start some laundry, its a lot of laundry and we call it Mt Morton most of the time. This goes faster than expected and it is now time to stop avoiding the mess from Bailey and get to cleaning (oh did I mention that there were other Bailey messes in the house from previous chewing experiences). I get busy picking up the toys from previous mentioned Zoey and some of Bailey's that he proceeds to drag back out of his cage as I put them in there. This ends in me locking all the toys in his cage...he he. Once all the big things(pieces of trash, toys, whatnot) are picked up I bring out the vacuum.

Now the vacuum is my pride and joy as I begged for a Dyson for months before I finally got one, however, vacuum in this house means loud noise and dogs must run. As a reminder we have a fat dog named Ruby too. She just does not know where to lay down at to stay away from the death machine. So the vacuuming gets done, even moved the furniture to do so, and its time for lunch before we pick up the other kids. Of course, lunch is partaken in front of TV and computer again because I had more emails to check.

Then I get to laugh....I'm barred from Pogo for 3 days. Now what could I have possibly done to get barred you ask? Well, apparently I was cheating on a badge...see I do not think of it as cheating, I think of it as beating the system. Is it my fault they have this glitch, and people are smart enough to figure it out (someone else pointed it out to me)? I guess the fact that I used this glitch to my advantage is not the issue as they did not take away my badge for the game, but they did not like me telling others in the room about it. Oh boo hoo, I emailed them back and said I don't think that what I did is any worse than people announcing "come to my game table, we lose on purpose so you can get your badge." That's cheating in my book too, but I bet those people did not get barred.

So that's what kind of person I am....I use the TV as a babysitter for my preschooler and I cheat on Pogo games. Better watch what you read or you might learn some bad habits. Until the next time, which could be later tonight at this rate, farewell all.
