"That's why I say I, like every American I'm speaking with, we're ill about this position that we have been put in. Where it is the taxpayers looking to bail out. But ultimately, what the bailout does is help those who are concerned about the health care reform that is needed to help shore up our economy. Um, helping, oh, it's got to be about job creation, too." -Sarah Palin
No, I wasn't counting on bathing the dog, bathing the baby, vacuuming the floors and cleaning out the fireplace this morning. But, thanks to the Toddler Job Creation Program, that's exactly what I got to do.
Here's an equation to illustrate:
[(Awake two-year-old) - (Pixar-sponsored distraction)] + fruit juice at snack time + jack russell terrier (thirty seconds of mom updating her blog / fireplace full of ashes left over from last weekend's snowy weather) = MOMMY JOB CREATION
Go ahead. Put it into your calculator. Or, ask Sarah to help you. The numbers all work out in the end.
