Operation Single Mom

The fighting was fierce today as the *said like Dr. Evil* Axis of Evil(also known lovingly as my daughters)tried to press their advantage from yesterday's battle (normal life). As a recap:
22 July 06 -- So around 1315 (1:15 p.m. Local) the allied troop (me, the mom)
planned to take advantage of the normal war rest period (known all around the
world as nap time) not with the normal mine clearing operations (cleaning up
toys and other child things) but with (a way, super much needed) recreational
morale break (a hot bath with rosemary suds and kick butt book). About 5 minutes
into this break the allied troop came under heavy fire (crying from a napmare).
While seeking cover (going to comfort said child) the troop received a self
inflicted injury to the hip area leaving her unable to breath and gasping on the
floor (*sigh -- it is okay to laugh* I slipped getting out the tub in a hurry
hoping she would not wake the other one and hit my head, right elbow, left
knuckles, right knee and big boo boo on my right hip ... this left me gasping for
breath as well *you can laugh now ... I did later*) The Axis felt this show of
weakness meant they should press their advantage with a new form of germ warfare
(Ehlonna was running a low fever I found after I scraped my big butt off the
bathroom floor) causing a halt to all operations(we spent the rest of the day
trying to keep Ehlonna happy).
Recap over :)
23 July 06 -- The Axis woke this morning with a renewal of energy and proceeded to bomb the loyal and steadfast troop during the morning chow break (eggs with cheese is very hard to get out of carpet and your hair -- just an FYI). The rest of the morning passed without much more than the normal stray sniper and evil troop movements (regular fighting and playing) until just before lunch when the dastardly Axis of Evil coordinated a play-dough ambush (I now have play-dough residue on my walls -- I look forward to explaining them to people, "no really 'house guest whoever' the wall really did have colored spots in lime green and hot pink at toddler level") that left our wonderful and tired troop reeling, but she bounced back with a strong rest period (they slept well and I got laundry all done). With this rally the troop and Axis decided to peace talks (I was going to take them to get Ice Cream because I had a coupon) but during pre meeting talks with France (I was doing Serina's hair -- and I do not know why she is France) Russia, (Again I have no clue why Ehlonna is Russia, or for that matter why these two are my Axis of Evil, but I digress) like I said Russia dropped a nuke in the living room that will have a lasting affect for all time (mostly -- she got into my powdered laundry soap and thought it was great fun to spread it all over the living room) Thank goodness the fast thinking and resourceful Allied troop (me again) implemented the nuke blocker with great efficiency (I ran my way cool and highly awesome Rainbow vacuum over the entire room right away, but now the whole house smells "sunshine freash" and spots of the carpet feel soapy). Russia was slapped with trading sanctions from the UN (this is also me and she was made to go without Ice Cream) The resulting counterattack was awful (she was bad the rest of the day to include mommy getting a PB and J to the face at dinner) and fighting ended early (I put them to bed early) Now the Allied troop seeks help from other world leaders (not really but I do hope you enjoyed adventures, I did – again mostly – only a really brave man or really insane one would take on me and these two J )

Well, I have to say I look like hell, feel like hell and oh yes I am ready for bed, but hope to get a phone call soon, love you guys.
