We had to have the cable guy come over and do some upgrades around the cafe. I picked yesterday, purely arbitrarily off the calendar as a good day to get this done.
Then the furniture people called. The new chair we ordered back in November was finally in and needed delivered. Could they deliver it the same day that the cable guy is coming? They sure can.
Then I remembered that it's been a year since our massive and stinky flood which washed away all our basement appliances. We got a deal on the yearly maintenance check-ups so how about the washing machine guy comes out that same day as well? It's a go!
Then a Girl Scout leader called. She needed me to go to the bank with her to open her troop account. Could we manage to go the same day as the cable guy, furniture guys and washing machine guy? Works for her!
So now we have broadband Internet, a new chair, a perfectly performing washing machine and a happy leader. I figure if I have to take a day off work, I'm going to make the most of it. I ran around like a mad woman tidying up the house, paying bills and organizing junk drawers while the service people did their things. It was a most satisfying day.
But today I didn't get called in. And I didn't have a damn thing to do. I'm going to go play Wii.
