This has been a hectic week for me and my household. I’ve had teens, tweens and preteens, traipsing through my house like Sherman marching through Atlanta. My refrigerator has seen more action than the most common of clichés that you can think of that sees a lot of action. At the peak of occupancy, I’m sure Noah looked down from above and wondered how that many creatures could fit in that space and what were we doing for restrooms.
Just when I thought it could not get any louder and nerve wracking, the doorbell rings AGAIN.
I’m sure the teenager at my door had the noblest of intentions when they agreed to sell whatever the heck it is they were trying to sell and I am usually very receptive to these juvenile pitchmen as they wander through the neighborhood hawking the assorted candy, plastic junk, subscriptions and whatnots that they lug around. However, straw met camel. Camel started venting. Poor teen fled practically in tears.
This could have been prevented by the simple use of custom logo mats. See, these doormats can come with whatever logo or phrase you want or need to have displayed. My fault is that my current front door mats say, “Welcome.” People see this and assume I mean it. What it should say is, “An overstressed, possibly psychotic father of three, lives here, approach at your own risk especially if you’re a male between the ages of 5 and 70.” Instead I am getting outdoor mats that say “NO SOLICITING, THIS MEANS YOU!” AND since I am getting a vanity mat, I’m getting sports rugs for my Lakers and one for my Angels as well, since MatsMatsMats can also make those to order.

After the New Year’s festivities this last week, I would highly recommend to you as I have to my friends; to invest in new door mats! Needless to say, I most certainly drank far too much on New Year’s, as I’m sure many of us did. Due to my competitive nature, and my fellow New Year’s Eve-ers playing the oh-so fun game of Wizard (Definitely look that one up); I eventually found myself in a peculiar and somewhat uncomfortable situation later in the evening. Namely I found myself passed out on my friends welcome mats.
Now this front door mat was by far not the most comfortable or supportive of entry mats. Though seeing as though I was semi-conscious at the time this fact did not reveal itself to me till the early hours of the morning. Now I know what you’re thinking, these are not made for that. Indeed, home doormats are made for the effective wiping of feet and overall upkeep and cleanliness of the home; agreed. However, I love things that are multi-purposed and if only my dear friends would have found some time to update their door mat to a more “accommodating” mat perhaps I would have woken slightly more refreshed and rejuvenated…still confused of course, but rested perhaps.
Needless to say the Wizard (yours truly) will be updating my own outdoor doormats at home in preparation for another such evening. Fore anything can be a resting place for a wary Wizard and every mat needs a home. So the time for updating those mats is at hands everyone. Trust me your neighborhood wizards will certainly thank you.

It’s cold. It’s snowing. You’ve got your heated floor mats outside. It’s great. We are all thoroughly enjoying the 6 inches of snow and cool breeze of winters delight…Said no one in Los Angeles, ever!
Nevertheless, we are just one lowly spread out city inhabited by millions of individuals parading around in our sun basked joy. For those of you (un)lucky snowy mountaineers, New Englanders, or Mid-Westerners, getting the snow off your doormats can be a pain in the stockings!
But fret not, just jingle over to our Snow and Ice Melting Mats and plug that sucker in. Make sure all the jolly holiday sprit oozing from those friendly neighborhood carolers’ pie-holes is met with nice, warm, comfy, toasty, and non-slip-hazard comfort when they come to your door!
