Em's here.

It's going surprisingly well. Her mom came over and waxed my eyebrows for me (Last time, I tried to do it myself after watching her do it with ease, and ended up cutting out chunks of my eyelashes and crying) while the kids watched on, horrified that I would pull out my eyebrows in an attempt to be prettier.

As we gossiped, the kids ran around screaming and before she left, she asked several times if I was sure I wanted to do this. I really wasn't sure I wanted to do this. This is why we only have overnights every few months. The kids always end up being annoying.

So far so good though, everyone is playing nicely. Well, we did find little kid in the closet eating a cookie he had stolen from Em's plate, but that's her fault for not eating all of her cookies right away. And they are a little annoying, but not "Why the hell did I sign up for this?" annoying.

No poop bomb updates as of yet. Someone suggested I get a motion detector sprinkler made for scaring animals away, and this is my favorite idea ever, but it's about $60 and let's face it--if we're going to sneak attack the poop bomber with a high powered stream of water, we'd want video of it. It would be epic, but Mr. Ashley isn't as excited about the idea as I am. It's definitely at the top of my list of solutions.

All right, the kids are being a little annoying right now. They're both playing Wii, and yet still sharing half of one couch with me and being loud and mouth breathing. I'm going to go play with them so they stop interrupting me.

My boys are having their first sleep over of their little lives tonight. Hope yours goes well!

The word 'sleep' is in sleep-over just to mock me.

I totally get why you don't do it often
