so you think you're all done, eh?
You're DONE. And somehow you managed to do it all while managing to keep up with your everyday stuff. You know, the kids. Your job. The laundry. Dinner. Everything. Yay you!!
You remember you forgot to pick up a $5.00 or less thing for your kid's class gift swap.
You remember you were supposed to pick up the gift your husband ordered for his parents.
Then you get a card from somebody you COMPLETELY forgot to add to your card list and you're out of cards so you have to go buy another box of cards. And some stamps.
You wake up in the middle of the night, sit straight up in bed and shriek "SHIT! I forgot I was supposed to put together a White Elephant gift and make toffee for that party tonight!"
You realize you missed a hair appointment because you were too busy chiseling ice out of the driveway to look at the calendar. You know, that thing in the kitchen where you write the reminders for things like hair appointments.
And doctor appointments. DOCTOR APPOINTMENTS?? Crap.
Then, after you've made a new list and are feeling somewhat back in control, your teenager stands in front of you, hands you a sheet of paper with a bunch of numbers on it and says, "This is the website where you have to go to buy my stuff for the high school gymnastics team, and these are the item numbers. I need them by next Friday."
And she's so not kidding.
You don't panic, you just add it to your list, because really, it's no biggie...it's not like you have to leave the house to do that, right?
So just when you're really feeling all organized and cocky about it, you remember that your friend, whom you really, really love and enjoy spending time with but don't see nearly enough of, is coming for coffee on Thursday morning and you're really happy you'll get to see her, so you just take a deep breath and know that scrambling around on Friday morning to get DONE instead of sitting on your ass doing nothing is a very small price to pay for spending time with one of your very favorite people on the planet on Thursday.
This would be where you remember you rescheduled your hair appointment for Friday.
At least you'll be scrambling around with pretty hair.
