Have you ever heard of that old saying "Be careful what you wish for, You just might get it??
Well, I am here to tell you, That is totally TRUE!!
Well,... that & the fact that God has a very funny sense of humor ( but, we all knew that one didn't we?)
Why do I say that? You ask?
Well, let me tell you a little story....
Woke up this morning feeling a little more groggier than usual, like I hadn't slept very well at all, & in my groggy, pre-coffee having brain I briefly thought
"Man, I really wish I didn't have to work today"
It was there briefly as I banished the thought as quickly as it came. I only work part time and I chastised myself for my laziness. After all, I DID need & want the money, so the morning went on and I didn't give it a second thought.
Just before going to get ready to start my " get ready for work" routine the Phone rings, I answered it and it was my Husband. The call went as follows....
Hubby: Hang on a Sec... ( Hubby talks to coworker in the background, saying that his boss left & asking the coworker to help him keep an eye on the phones, because ( Their Dispacher) was at an apointment and the boss forgot about it, & they were the only 2 in the building. ( comes back to phone) You there?
Me: Yes, what's up?
Hubby: School called, said Kid was sick to his stomach, needs to be picked up.
Me: (silently groaning) Ok, I'll call work.
( This happens to be the ONLY child of ours that isn't old enough/mature enough to stay home by himself w/o one of us there)
Hubby: Well, call his Mom & see if She can take him first. I'd do it but you heard that I cant leave.
Me: *sighing* ok.
So, I hung up & called work, & let them know what was going on, considering that it was now less than an hour before i was suppose to be at work.
Next, I called the mom & noone answered at the home number, so I called her cell only to find out that she was about to have a bunch of Dental Work done.
So, That left just me.
Reluctantly, I called work and told them that it was a no- go, & fortunately they were really good about it.
So, you see? you REALLY DO need to be careful what you wish for....
Because, You truly just might get it!
