HAVE YOU EVER...

...had one of those days that you seem to do everything, but nothing gets done? Like when the phone rings, so you go to answer it, but can't find it. You remember seeing a phone laying on top of the dryer, so you go down to retrieve it, and then you see something that the dog dragged in on the laundry room floor, so you scoop that up and dispose of it. That reminds you that no one took in the garbage can last night, and so you are probably going to get a nasty-gram from the HOA, so you go to drag that back into the side yard. Then you see that no one has picked up the dog poop on the side yard since God was a child, so you go in to get rubber gloves and a bag to do the deed, and you remember that you still haven't unpacked some of the Wal Mart and Target bags from yesterday's store run. So you go up to unload the various and sundry items and put them in their rightful homes, when you notice that the one of the new shampoo bottles seems to be leaking, so you wash it off in the sink and try to locate the leak. That reminds you that there's a sink full of dirty dishes downstairs to tend to, so off you go. As you are staring an ever-growing pile of dirty dishes in the face, you realize that no one (read: YOU) has unloaded the clean dishes from the dishwasher yet. As you unload the dishes from the dishwasher, you remember that you haven't taken out the roast to defrost for tonight's dinner. Since the day is now half over, the roast is no longer an option. Now, the bigger problem is what will dinner be, and who the heck is going to deliver it to you. As you are looking up the number for the local pizza place, your phone rings again. This time, you know right where it is, and run to the laundry room. Has this ever happened to you? Me either, I was just checking.
