This was the weekend of my big blogging conference.
I left on Friday morning at 8:02 am.
And my cell phone rang at 8:07 am with a question from Rick about the kids. But those five minutes were positively blissful. Then during the conference, I received this text….
“This day feels like it’s 36 hours long.”
And this one…
“We’re play croquet now,” which I was pretty sure was code for “The kids have locked me in the attic and I can’t get out” but I was too busy sorting through BlogHer swag and ironing my pink sash for The Mouthy Housewives party to really pay attention.
The Mouthy Housewives party was ultra fabulous (although we missed Mouthy Housewife Heather). Everyone who came received a free LG vacuum cleaner! And Wendi and Marinka (the model tall, blond gals below) have generously offered to visit everyone’s house and do their vacuuming. Our other sponsors, JVC, DreamSakes, 8th Continent Soy Milk, Whirlpool, Orbeez and VolunteerSpot were amazing too.

All and all, a great weekend.
I want to thank the man who made this trip possible for me…
Oops. I’m sorry. No, not Bruce Jenner.
I meant this guy….
Oh wait, wrong again. That’s Nate Berkus.
Oh yeah, here’s the guy.
Yeah, that’s definitely him.
By the way, if you think my parenting skills got rusty over the past two days I was gone, then think again. Because Rick and I found a tick on Chase’s head, proceeded to rip it out with a pair of tweezers while the poor boy cried and now we’re pretty sure it was just some schmutz in his hair.
I think this means I can enter the 8th Continent Soy Milk contest, Nice Job, Mom. You tell them about your less-than-perfect parenting moment and you can win free housekeeping for a year or other great prizes. Good luck moms.
