So I have forty eleven things swirling around in my head - none of which are interesting or entertaining or witty or remotely cool. But that is how my life rolls and all.
I had another big meeting at work yesterday. Ya know, one of those in which you are nervous and over prepared and so afraid of letting your boss down or not taking things the right direction? Anyone? Anyone? But at the end, he met with me privately for about 10 minutes and said, "Rewrite your job description tomorrow, I am promoting you!"
then I blacked out, came to, passed out again and when I awoke, I was curled up in a fetal position, twirling my hair and calling out for my momma. I think it went well.
Then I have been busy busy trying to find a summer sitter for my kids. someone old enough to not tire with the DAY TO DAY mundaneness of it all. And to let me take photos and blog about them. Until yesterday, we had uhm, let me count..........zero prospects. Then I emailed ET's 5th grade teacher and asked if she could recommend anyone. By the end of the day I had 5 emails and 3 phone interviews. Here is what I have:
Ms. Col - 19 yr old at Holy Cross home for the summer and wanting to nanny. Dad is a school counselor. She has babysit every summer but the kids are now old enough to be at camp, etc. She is even-keel and seems very responsible and not liekly to over-react in situations. She is calm and warm. She will be home the weekend of May 9 and we will formally meet.
Ms. Cat - 19 yr old at Auburn home for the summer and wanting to nanny. Mom is a speech pathologist and she lives 5 minutes away. She has babysit, has 2 young siblings. Loves NURF guns and did an internship with her mom's school in speech therapy. She is bubbly and energetic, CPR training and scuba dives. She will be home the weekend of May 9 and we will formally meet.
Ms. L - is a 16 yr old right down the road. Her mom is a teacher and she is FUN FUN FUN. She is ready to take on responsibility and seems very MODALBY. She will be coming over this weekend.
I also played phone tag with Mr. N a 19 yr old college student in the local area whose mom is the receptionist at ET's school.
Sooooo, ya'll are totally gonna have to endure the posts after I meet them and decide who I should hire. Amen.
BUT -- for now RUN HIDE FLY AWAY. Cause we are having an all new ASK CG. I know. I know. What can there POSSIBLY be that you do not know about me......oh trust me. There are so many layers honey. So many layers. I am like a wedding cake. Without the little bride and groom figurines on top. But other than that, just like it.
So - either:
A) Clean the hairs behind your toilet
B) Get a bikini wax
C) Chop wood
D) Ask CG some questions
All of these rank in the same "funess" category.
I will answer all your q's first thing next week. Either post me your q's here or email me at
Ask me anything bout me (except my bra size) or I can totally go all Dear Abby on you too if you need advice. Cause I am all in everybody's business anyway. And who else should solve your problems other than a silly girl who can't solve her own. Yeah, that is what I am here for.
I LOVE YOU ALL - ASK AWAY!
