Yup, Mommy is Going to Hell and She's Taking the Rum With Her

Church Lady: "We're so glad your girls are able to come to our Vacation Bible School this week! Where do you usually attend church?"

Me: "Ummm..." Cheeks turning beet red as I frantically try to remember the name of the church we've gone to maybe 3 times in the seven years we have lived here. "Well, we sometimes attend ______ Baptist."

Anna: "What are you talking about Mama? We never go to church!" Turns back to Church Lady "Guess what? We went to another VBS a few days ago, then we got to come here and we're going to go to a different one next!"

The little shit outed me. Ed and I discovered that if we planned things right, we could have 3 hours of peace every night for the next few weeks by signing the girls up for VBS at several churches. Anna found out that one of her friends was going to VBS, so she begged to go as well. That's when the lightbulb went off in my sometimes functioning brain. I figure, hey...they want to go, and as long as they don't come home as mindless robots, I don't care about the denomination of the church. Well, with the exception of Scientology. Those crazy bastards can just keep their Xenu and the hydrogen bomb shit to themselves, thank you very much.

OK, so we don't win the Parents of the Year award, but we do get to consume massive quantities of alcohol while they are gone. The only problem is remembering who's turn it is to stay sober enough to pick them up.
