Reasons I Can't Spend Time With Y'All Today

Quickly - Auntie Kate showing up in an hour, Bunko guests arriving in 2 hours, children needing baths and food sometime before they scatter to the four winds for their evening activities...

All of which might have been easier to handle if I had remembered that we also had 2 well-child checkups this afternoon.

Knowing how to use a calendar just might be a valuable skill. I should learn it.

Not that, say, I could have written 2 weeks ago on a calendar, "DRYER WILL BREAK DOWN JUST IN TIME FOR ARRIVAL OF HOUSE GUEST," right? Some things one just cannot plan for. Coincidence? I think not. The appliances just know when I am vulnerable. They have it in for me.

  1. Do you really need to bathe and feed the kids? Seriously, they're just going to be stinky and hungry again tomorrow.

  2. Hmmm, I think it might have been this morning (on Jen's blog I believe) that I said I wanted to be like you some day...is it too late to knock on some wood?

  3. They do seem to know when you are vulnerable.

    Hope you can overcome the drier issues and enjoy your house guests and Bunko!

  4. My hair dryer likes to blow out on me at just the right/wrong time.

  5. If not a calendar then maybe the palm of your hand?

    Have a great night!

  6. Get Auntie kate in the bath, the dryer to the doctor, and call a repairman to look at the kids. Done and done.

  8. Hope all went well with your busy day!

    I always buy a great calendar for my appointments but never use it!

  9. I refuse to comment on your broken appliances and how outraged I am at them for continually attacking you when you are vulnerable because I'm afraid my dishwasher might hear and it has been making some ridiculous noises lately. I fear the end is near, but we're not discussing it.

  10. That would have been the time one of my kids would have the poop of death. Then while cleaning that up, another throws up, and another lets the dog out and on and on. Guess it keeps us hopping.

  11. I miss Bunko. That is really all my broken brain will allow me to say right now.

  12. Your comment on Conversion Diary about the controversy about the Pope hit the nail on the head. Thank you.

  13. I'm convinced that appliances are possessed. They have a mind of their own - and it parallels the mind of an evil vindictive person.

  14. I hope it went smoother than you expected!

  15. Overtaken by Bunko jealousy while holding my nose around stinky, dirty boys. You mean I'm supposed to make doctor appointments for kids and cats? Pffft.

  16. I would say something mean about your appliances, but then they would tell mine, and you get the picture.

  17. Mine wait to break till everyone's here.

    Something to know about GE: their factory workers went on Christmas break, shutting down the factory, and I was told that the part that broke in my dishwasher would not be made again for three weeks hence. And, since they were into just-in-time orders and delivering, there were none to be bought from appliance parts places.

    Except for one shopkeeper in Colorado who was highly annoyed. I sent him a pound of Trader Joe's candied nuts as a thank you for his being willing (barely) to ship us the part when he didn't do shipping. Merry Christmas and all that.

    I couldn't get to your blog earlier, by the way--error message. And now it's saying my comment has been saved, when I hadn't typed it all yet. Blogger's being weird today.
