My next thought went immediately to my 9 a.m. appointment AND the perfectly prepped kitchen that is just waiting for me to do my thing. The owners of the house are just waiting for me to do my thing, too. I taped and cleaned and prepped (all the crap I hate) for a day and a half, and now it's time to do the fun part. An aside: Seeking obsessive-compulsive, really picky, possibly even neurotic very part-time assistant. Must love perfection, be willing to get dirty, sweat, and use a porta potty. It's a very glamorous gig.
Back to point: Initially I always freak when I get derailed and have to stay home.
But hey ... guess what I'm doing now? I'm watching Hannah Montana!!!
I got the best of both worlds ... come on, sing along with me!! For some reason, God always seems to insert Hannah Montana into my days when I am forced to sit still. Like one day, the girls and I endured at least four or five hours in the mechanic's waiting room, during which time the cell phone towers were down and we were forced to watch marathon episodes of Hannah Montana AND "That's So Random."
At the time I wanted to pluck my eyeballs out, but now that we remember back on that day it rates as one of our favorite best-memory days. Even today I am thoroughly enjoying these re-run episodes. Another bonus: Aren't kids so sweet when they're sick?
Anyway, here's a handy tip: If you really want to be entertained and maybe even show your kids (and/or grandkids) how cool you are ... FIRST GET OFF PINTEREST!! (Ha!) And THEN ... impress them with your knowledge of "Sicky Vicky" from That's so Random. Go ahead ... look it up on youtube ... it's classic.
