Calgon...you have failed me.

My last Twitter of the day read "Calgon can not take me far enough away"

It's been one of those days that submerging myself in bubbles, although appealing, is just not going to help "get me away from it all". Unless I lose consciousness. Mainly because I can not take a bath without slipping on a duckie, having one or more children screaming at the door and The Man yelling that someone has just pooped in the floor. (Well, stick a flag in it buddy and claim it as yours! Thanks for the discovery!)

Patience is a virtue. After using Wiki to look up "virtue", I discovered that restraint is also a virtue. I think that one is much more obtainable when you have kids. I can restrain myself from yelling at the kids (sometimes) much easier than I can patiently deal with/talk/negotiate/whatever about why we don't pull our sister's hair out/dump spaghetti on the carpet/poop in the floor/whatever. So, while patience is all noble and such; I am aiming for restraint.

I have been thinking about Calgon quite a bit lately too. I don't even know if they make it anymore. So if you find patience and/or restraint at the store, let me know.

Calgon is a powdered bubble bath. The commercials would always show some world weary woman lowering herself into the bubbles with the slogan, "Calgon take me away"
