The phone rang and a child called out, "Toll Free!" so I poured on the milk and stepped over boxes and shoes and toys to get to the table to work on our puzzle that we have been working on all week and just cannot seem to finish.
The answering machine began to record the message of a girl saying, "Calling for Denise. This is Republic Waste Services, we have received the receipt of the bill we sent you in a sealed, stamped envelope. You filled out the receipt but we did not receive form of payment."
I answered the phone.
Yah, I really did make out a bill, seal the envelope, stamp it and drive it down to the post office to be sent without EVER making out the check.
I apologized and tried to get her to laugh about it but apparently it was not as funny to her as it was to me.
These past weeks have just been like that for me. I cannot remember what day it is for anything. I cannot keep weeks straight. I have overbooked myself three times now and I hate saying, "I am really sorry, but I just realized that that is the same day that we are doing this...."
The best one was when I received an email saying, "See you Friday!" and I responded with, "Where do we meet on Thursday?" Because "SEE YOU FRIDAY" was in bright blue, huge font and I was responding to that email.
The house is a mess. I have no idea what to make for dinner. My children nearly cried in joy when I brought home groceries. I still have Christmas letters to write. Christmas shopping to do. Parties to attend. Kid's homework to work on. Books to read and books I want to read. Blogging, how I miss it!
So I decided I needed an assistant.
Here is the thing - NO ONE wants to be my assistant. They know if they were my assistant they would need an assistant to assist them assisting me.
How sad is that?
So I decided....
I need minions.
They are cute, the make no sense and they can accomplish great feats. They are happy to live underground and they always seem giggly silly happy.
Yes, I need minions.
Anyone else with me on this one?
