I'm living in a war zone.

My front porch is home base for one side in the wide-ranging conflict. My front porch makes an excellent base as the surrounding terrain makes it easy to defend. Also, you can hide behind the hedge rows and launch a surprise attack when the enemy passes by. However, as far as I can tell the soldiers have walkie-talkies but no weapons, so I'm not entirely clear what they use in the attack.

The retaining wall in my back yard appears to be some sort of holding cell. There have been interrogations taking place there sporadically for several days. I expect there will be a sneak attack from above before long, and I think the occupying army should pay careful attention to what is going on in the junipers above their heads. Also, as long as they are down there, they should take my trash and recycling up to the curb.

It has been rather stressful trying to live my life while surrounded by battles. I can't decide whether I should barricade myself in a closet or invite the commandos in for hot cocoa. You see, it's very cold today and I'm sure their mothers would be upset to know they weren't wearing their gloves. I've also considered loaning them my set of walkie-talkies, but I am concerned doing so may change the balance of power in a conflict that I do not fully understand.

Perhaps I should call the U.N.?

Don't call the UN. They won't do anything.

Uh, it feels like it's 6 degrees outside. My children are chained down in front of the TV and I'm forcing them to play PS2. Why in the world would any parent let their kids play outside on a day like today?

Or am I one of those totally unkewl moms?

I don't think the UN is going to be of any help with your dilema! lol good luck :)

Forget the U.N., go outside and beat up on some grade school ass. Go out and build up a nice snowball aresenal and then launch an attack from an upstairs window.

Snowball fights. Awesome! Damn Texas.

Hey! I'm for hot cocoa (is that what it's called these days) in a closet with a couple of commandos! Or have I missed the point of this post altogether? ;)

Haha :) Lovely post! I'd go for offering the troops hot cocoa.

Ah...I remember creating war zones! that was fun! Maybe I will do that today too...and freak my neighbors out! *grin*

I would definately call the UN, but if they take took long to respond, I'd go get Chris and go down there and beat the crap out of the biggest kid (and say he was using iceballs), steal his gloves, then stand there and let his buddies pelt you with snowballs until you have frostbite. No matter what, don't admit you were wrong.

see, the problem with calling the UN is that they'll have meetings, and committees and endless discussions about such and such. then they'll just call in the US.

i recommend gallons of hot cocoa with thoise little marshmallows and a nice cozy chair.

I'm so excited! You're going to be the coolest mom ever! You already HAVE the walkie-talkies!

That was a great post. I hope you at least made some hot cocoa while you were watching them.

at least you had the day off, right? :) being in the middle of a war zone is probably better than work, i would imagine. hehe. :)
