Umm... Maybe this wasn't such a great idea....
I had a really nice day, but then I started dinner. It was just leftovers like Taco Soup, so no problem, right?
I open the fridge. I reach for the Taco Soup container. It seems stuck. I yank on it... and the tall plastic container of ORANGE JUICE that is right NEXT to it, slips off of the shelf, lands at my feet, and forms a GEYSER of OJ straight up into my face and all over my clothes. Great. JUST GREAT.
Still, I can cope with spilled geyser-like OJ. It's not a big deal. I mop it up, fix dinner, relax for a few minutes.
Time comes for my 7-year-old to get ready for bed. I go up and start his shower. SOMEHOW, I do not REMOVE my head from the shower BEFORE the water comes on FULL BLAST.
Yep, you guessed it. I am drenched again. Oh, and did I mention that it's like 20' outside and feels pretty cold inside our drafty 100-year-old house as well? Didn't I mention that? Oh. BRRRR!
But, still. Clothes dry.
So, the kids are all set and I sit down to read my favorite blogs and their updates. I note Speedy has updated. He seems to think the WRONG team is going to win the Super Bowl, so he challenges the blogosphere to a bet. I accept. OF COURSE. I LOVE the Steelers, after all!
But, now I am wondering... was tonight the BEST night to accept a BET? I do not have such a great track record so far! Now I am nervous! OH-OH!
This promises to be a great time! :)
GO STEELERS!!! :)
