The Crazy Suburban Mom: Much ado about bowel cleansing... and a tropical go...

Much ado about bowel cleansing... and a tropical go...

I watch a lot of TV.

Even though I have a pretty minimal DirectTV package I still have a lot of channels. So many that there should be something that I love on every minute of every day, right?

So tell me...

How can I have 100 channels at my disposal 24 hours a day and yet the other day I ended up watching an infomercial on bowel cleansing?

Which I promise you (in all sincerity) is the most horrifying half hour of television you will ever experience... It was perhaps the most horrifying half hour of my life, now that I think about it.

So, how did I find myself white-knuckling the couch as I twitched
(and sometimes screamed out-loud) in the face of one colon horror after another? (Which is a pretty disturbing visual if you think about it...)

Yes, you know the answer. Everyone does. Because I have 100 channels and nothing's on. We all do.

And the really weird thing about this post?

Well, okay that last thing was weird enough, I know. But this post happened because I wanted to post pictures of my bathroom. And the next thing I knew I was on this rant about television and colon cleansing... Talk about A.D.D...


If you are still here after all of that. Which no one probably is, the point of the post was to show you pictures of my master bath. I painted a sunset going around the room. I had to put three pictures together to get most of it in so the actual visual if you were in the room, is more of a 'U' than flat like this looks... but it's probably enough to get an idea.

The colors are somewhat more subtle than they turned out here with more variation. I know it looks like the wall is painted orange and blue...but its really a gradation of glowing yellow, to golden orange to a blue to a darker periwinkle...

And one more thing.... This morning I got this!

I received this award from Veronica Lee over at Of Mice and Ramen
A very, very, VERY kind thing to do to me since today's
post was especially horrifying.

Go visit Veronica, she is a kind soul.

And since I found out that The Knutson Klan over at My Four Monkeys has only ever had one blog award I'm inviting her over to grab this one! She just awarded me the Sushi Award...which is now making me want sushi to go with those Cinnabons!

LOL. Guess I was inspired by you so posted a TMI post about my 14 year old daughter's bowels this morning. Her doctor told me to give her an enema?!! Maybe I should try to find a link to the bowel cleansing infomercial or just make her watch preschool TV all morning (that usually makes her SAY she wants to "poop," or was it vomit?). *sigh* I just love being a Mom!

Mary - thank for for posting to this cause NO ONE HAS!! LOL.. I know, its horrifying but.. wow at least that day didn't involve and actual enema.

You know if you go to and put in bowel cleaning... you will find the video I almost posted, but just couldn't.

And how funny that your daughter says she wants to poop when watching tv, my son always says that when I say, Go do your homework!


rock on with your mommy self!

Yea!! we didn't have to resort to an enema, but it did take quite a while to clean up all the water from the overflowing clogged toilet.

Luckily, I was able to veg in front of some trash TV (which is what I watch instead of infomercials), while Hubby, who has no sense of smell, helped her clean up.

I think it was all the sugar-free candy I let her eat instead of all the actual meds. Oh yeah, TMI again.

I'm looking forward to reading past posts of your blog. You make me laugh!
