Rainy Days and Mondays

Are not getting me down today! We had a good squall go through this morning (it was so windy the rain was sideways!). There is the promise of sun behind the few clouds that remain and that is all I need to keep on truckin'!

I have been working since I woke up this morning. I had to complete inventory for the theater where I work. This was due on March 31. I am in the process of taking over the supervisor job and have been playing catch up. Lots to learn and much to do.

The kids are lagging this morning. Got up late, lingering over breakfast..already asking if they can minimize their school days. Absolutely not. My oldest, of course, always wants a day off. He will get one on Thursday as my hubby's friend at work has offered to take him to the Masters. He's very excited to go, but he's got to get his work done first. I know..mom is such a downer.:)

Last night, watching the Celebrity Apprentice, I was so highly offended! They contestants had to create a viral video for All Small & Mighty.

When asked what the target demographic of their product was, the female executive says this "Women age 25 and up with children. Not mom's." She went on to describe these women as "internet savvy". Uh..excuse me? Did I hear that right? Did she just say that "mom's" are not internet savvy? Did she just imply that "mom's" are somehow less than "women with children". I was highly offended at the statements made about that last night. It was as if you are a "mom" you are dumb and have no identity. But if you are a "woman with children" you are smart and savvy. What is a "woman with children" if not a "mom"? It made no sense and it was very offensive.

I am going to write a letter to the company expressing my exception to her statements and encourage you to do the same. You can do this at their website All-laundry.com.

I am also going to refrain from buying their products at this time. I believe they should issue a public apology to all "mom's".

What do you think? Am I off my rocker? Would you have found this offensive?
You can view the episode at NBC's website for The Celebrity Apprentice.

That gets my blood boiling!!!! I am sick and tired of "moms" getting degraded. I'm with you on the letter writing campaign, even if I didn't see the show. Trump's hair drives me nuts :-)
