Rant: A Crystal Clear Threat

A little message for the Mr. (because he can rarely answer the phone when I call him at work):

As much as I love red and pink this Valentine time of year, if you EVER, EVER, EVER leave an entire box of Fruit Punch flavored Crystal Light To-Go packets out on the counter within reach of 4 snatching, flailing, grab-anything-within-reach Twin Arms, I will leave and never come back. I mean it--I keep a full tank of gas and a cooler full of diet coke in the car just in case. 

And now that the kitchen mess is finally cleaned up, I'm left to take two kids with me to run errands all morning with giant red mouths all the way up to their cheekbones that look like Joker rejects from the Batman movie auditions. Because of course THAT will help my freak show blend in a little better in public.

Laura, this is your mother. Remember that your dad and I love you. Your children and Jeremy love you. (However, he should be flogged but we will discuss that later.)

You can't just run away...but if you do...do you have enough Diet Coke in your cooler for me, too? Don't you dare leave without giving me the option of joining you. It is looking like a viable option this morning.

Hang in there. :)

Sounds like it's time for Jeremy to fess up with some more jewelry to me...

Looks like Jeremy needs to make this up to me. Maybe a new pink kitchen aid?

Come on... I wanted to see pictures!
I bet that was a nightmare to clean. That stuff makes a horrible mess...
