Today started off bright an early at 7am and is just now winding down.
My youngest nephew decided he didn't like the cake and ice cream we served and decided to munch on an ink refill instead. I should have snapped a pic of the nice ink blob on the floor. It certainly didn't hurt it any...thankfully we have a hardwood laminate and things wipe up pretty easily on it. But I have learned the trick of making a paste of baking soda and water and rubbing it on ink marks on good wood furniture. I about had a heartattack when I saw the ink that covered our wooden chess table but that's a story for another time. And speaking of ink being on things...my oldest son seems to have a fascination with leaving ink pens in his pants pockets and they are forever being run thru the washer/dryer. Which is not good for them...or the clothes they come into contact with. I found another instance of this yesterday. The silver lining in this cloud was that I've learned to wash/dry his clothes all by themselves so if things get ruined it's only his clothes in that state...not the rest of the households. As and added bonus, summer uniform starts at school tomorrow so that means that his last pair of pants that just came out of the dryer with ink marks on them are no longer needed. Yeah, I'm looking for anything to make this better. ;)
