Mayhem ......naturally


Month end went ok.....

right up till the time it was to send all the money away on the dial up banking line

which then saw me crawling around on the floor trying to figure out why the connection wouldn't work....

following phonelines here there and everywhere

on my hands and knees

only to find

the dog had eaten the cord..yep...in bits.......but which bits????

Which necessitated me crawling around on all fours for another hour trying to locate which line connected to what line and then trying to find appropriate spare lines to replace broken chewed one and .....

then me driving like a demon to the hardware store to purchase said lines that we didn't have

I am going to kill the dog

and myself!

argh

On a brighter note......

I have sorted out why I am out of sorts....

Go read here if you like, makes perfect sense to me, on top of Robert Young's words the other night and what my own intuition has been trying to tell my non listening self...

I must stay out of my own way!

No doubts

None

Mum is feeling pretty good this past few days and a longer break between chemos should see her having a good week. My brother, Alan, is coming to visit on Thursday, for a week, which will be nice......then my sister will be down for a week after that......cool!

One of the other people who made an offer for the business may yet be coming back with another one to at least match the one we have...this is good, safety in numbers and may even be better in that we like them better :)

I feel like I will be prostituted into being part of a contract with this buyer and I don't much like it.......I will deal but still....grrrr

Anyway......what must be done must be done sometimes

And if that's all there is to it....well okay

but

I'm not closing any doors

:)

I need a new duster, maybe we can turn Chandi in it?
Yay for siblings who visit, and clever office women who can not only fix cords, but can sell businesses as well as houses.
Off to read R.Y.xx♥

Saw the graphic for your post and just had to drop in and see what was going on under the desk!...you certainly are multitalented...and very tolerant if the dog is still about!...yes surrendering...i need to focus..or not...on that...

Glad your mom is doing better and that your brother and sister are coming to offer some relief.

Renee said...

Seriously Michelle you are the hardest working woman I know.

Do you want to be contracted in? Then won't you be stuck doing exactly what you have been doing? That seems a high price to pay. Unless of course you love it.

I am glad your Mom is feeling better.

Love Renee xooxxo
