I flexed my political muscles today! I am on my way to the White House! I can just feel it... you see, yesterday, a friend called and asked if I could watch her little girl today while she was at the dentist. I said, "Sure - not a problem!" And then I did the unthinkable... I didn't write it on the calendar. Now, I don't know about you, but if something isn't on my calendar, then it isn't happening!
About half an hour before they were to show up, I decided to go to the bank. I had to deposit our tax return (which was kind of odd because we e-filed and it was supposed to be direct deposited... another thing I could fix if I were President). And the bank took forever. Not that I was in a great hurry... there wasn't anything on my calendar for the day.
I get home, get Baby Girl and I some lunch and then check email. That's when I see the flashing red light on the answering machine. I push the button and hear my sweet friend asking where I'm at! GAH!! What have I done?
I'll tell you what I've done: I made a promise and then I broke it! I am a political machine!
I did talk to my friend later on and apologized profusely. I guess the correct way to do that would have been to call a press conference and have it televised during every one's favorite T.V. shows this evening... I still have a lot to learn...
