ha! just saw the cartoons, they are way too good!
love the one with the dog on the couch!
yeah, what's with the whole thing on mom's day when she demands the family be there. i am the same way. some sort of self destruct mechanism i think. this year though, i played it right....the kids went to their dad's for dinner with their step mom (who loved it!) and i got to go out for dinner and martinis. nice change. smooth move. first time. gotta love it.
