What The?!

Every afternoon I put Jake & Laney down for their nap and quickly jump into the blog world. What? There are dishes to be done....eh, they can wait! There's laundry to be washed...eh, it can wait! I should vacuum and dust...eh, it can most surely wait!

So today I'm navigating my way through the world of blogs when I come across a blog called "Keeping the Home Fires Burning" . It's a sweet little blog and the author is someone that I could probably sit down with and have a few laughs with. In her last post she talks of her European Cousin who participates in {as the author says}.......wait for it.......


You have got to be kidding me! Extreme Ironing? The definition of EI is "Extreme Ironing (or EI) is an extreme sport and a performance art in which people take an ironing board to a remote location and iron items of clothing". Even though the author told me that she indeed googled it and it's for real I had to google it for myself! There is actually a website dedicated to it. Now, what I would like to know is can we call anything a sport? Apparently we can. If we put the word Extreme in front of it.

Personally I'd rather participate in Extreme Sitting or Extreme Sleeping.

Why anyone would pick a chore and make it a sport I have no idea. These Europeans are pretty crafty. Off the cuff, to say the least!

Ah, let's just all get together and have an Extreme Car Picnic!
{said in my best Arnold Schwarzenegger voice}


  1. I love the car picnic idea. You know I do.

  2. Ooooh extreme shopping sounds fun.. dh would say I already have that mastered though. hee hee! ;o)


Ohh ~ I'm so excited to hear what you think of this post! Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment! Comments = Love
