That Wasn’t In My Master-Plan!

20 May
Superman making his debut in Action Comics No....

I’m a planning/organizing geek. Or maybe freak is a better fit.

Either way, when I realized just how short of a time-frame I would be packing up our household (mostly solo), I grabbed a pen and paper and Made A LIST! Then, I drew out a master schedule, day-by-day and assigned tasks accordingly. Visit from Sister and Brother-In-Law, no problem! I left those days blank. Birthday Party? Check! I got it covered. Until a couple of days ago, I was not only on target, but possibly a little ahead of schedule.

Then, Mr Crabby Pants took a little tumble, and landed just so as to end up needing a staple in his head.

Ok, I got it. We’re moving along. Of course for some reason that song “Kryptonite” keeps  popping up in my head: If I go crazy, then will you still call me Superman? I attribute this partly to the Superman bandages I bought to prevent him from DIY staple removal.

What I did NOT plan on, was being rear-ended on my way home from church yesterday. It’s T-minus 3 weeks to till we are rolling out-of-town here and CAR REPAIRS were not on my master list! Thankfully we’re all ok. But, seriously, I need to be able to access my trunk.

I’m waiting for a claim rep to get in contact with me, “Sometime before 5”, according to the Customer Service Rep I talked with yesterday.

Can you hear my fingers drumming? Can you???

    Wow, I’d probably be a little freaked with the crabby’s staple and then a car accident. You seem much calmer than me. Or are you just holding it in and then you’ll explode when you get there?

      More disbelief than anything else. Plus, I don’t have time to panic. I’ve got packing to do, I’m about out of boxes. Need reinforcements! Back to the liquor store.

        You’re running on pure adrenaline now! Every time you say, “back to the liquor store, I need reinforcements!” it cracks me up. I know what you mean but the actual image of what you COULD be getting at the store is what makes me laugh.

        Hee hee. It makes me laugh too. Seriously though, they are the best boxes. sturdy and manageable size. I fantasize about grabbing a bottle of Margaritas and letting someone else do the work for me… if only

        Yep … moving is the worst. But it’ll be over before you know it and then guess what … you get to unpack!

        Crabby pants will be happy to help with that! I can just see it now. On the bright side it will also keep him occupied.

        I’ve been reading this book about how to simply blogging and the writer is a mom. She tells this story about how she cleans out her back room and her two kids help her. She talks about how she made a game out of and did a little bit each day AND the kids loved it. It was a cute story but I just can’t see my kid doing this, yours? most likely but not mine :)

        Nah, she hates cleaning. She made a mother’s day card and said on it “my mom loves to clean”. I personally think LOVE is a strong word here, but that’s the impression she has.
