18 Interruptions, Mind You!

I came home from work a little early today. I'm the Manager on Duty at our work this weekend. Since I didn't sleep well last night, I thought it would be a delicious idea to take a wee nap. Only an hour and 15 minutes, I thought.

Let's just say...I'll be very grateful for a good night's sleep tonight, if it comes. I had 18, not 17, but 18 interruptions to my nap. Hence, no nap, really. The interruptions are listed below. Sing with me to the tune of The Twelve Days of Christmas...

6 loud bankphming sounds from the dryer

4 calls on my cell phone

3 visits by my meowing cat, Max (see post from October 11th)

2 visits by my oldest daughter just to let me know she loved me

2 entries into the room by my sweet husband who was doing the laundry

1 doorbell ringing

and a partridge in a pear tree.

It's generally not the big things that get me off track, it's the little things. I'm thankful I have a cell phone (most of the time). I'm thankful that I have two cats who are really sweet. I'm definitely thankful to have Vann and Katie Lea in my life. I'm most definitely thankful that Vann does the laundry in our family and has done so for 27 years.

But, about the bankphming sound from the dryer. We'll have to do something about that!

Thankful, in spite of it all,

Isn't that always the way it goes. Here's hoping you are already asleep, energizing for the next big garage sale! :-)

Too funny - sorry about your nap. It is 12:40 am, I sure hope you're getting some good sleep.

I hate when that happens!

Hope you get some really good rest soon. :)

Actually... you are just so cute when you're napping I couldn't resist taking a peek!

Your laundry-doing hubby...
