It’s Funny

Just when you think you’ve got everything going along fine, your plate is nice and full, fate drops a whole rotisserie chicken down on top of it and says “HA!  Deal with this!”  Let me explain.  Today was going to be a busy day,  we are celebrating David’s birthday at the office and then tonight right after work, Georg and I are going to the Fall Out Boy concert.  David’s birthday celebrations need to be events, he is so special to all of us, so he deserves special birthdays.  This year we are doing cheese, fruit, and bread.  He did not want cake, he had a bad chocolate cake experience last fall.  He has always said that for his birthday he wanted cheese, fruit, and bread, so that is what we are having.  Mike B. got the cheese earlier in the week, but I still had to dash to the store before work this a.m. to get the fruit.  Then last night at Costco at 6 p.m. I get a tearful call from my Mom saying that she and my Dad have to be in the city at 8 a.m. TODAY so my Dad can have emergency eye surgery.  Hello rotisserie chicken, it’s nice to meet you.  After speaking with her, I formulated a plan to get all of the items for David’s party to the office and then drive downtown to meet my parents at the hospital.  I had no idea at that point what was going to happen, how long they would be here, if they would be staying with us.  Darling Husband Carl volunteered to entertain them tonight so I could still go to the concert.  I met Mom and Dad at the hospital shortly after 8 a.m.  We finally got to see the specialist at about 9 a.m.  Turns out Dad doesn’t need surgery after all.  Schwoo.  Major Schwoo.    So they are on their way back home and I can attend David’s office bash after all.  A special thank you to the “Doctor” yesterday that put my Mom and Dad through all of that unnecessary stress.  So now I’m trying to just catch my breath.  Everyone have a fantastic weekend, and remember don’t let your plate get too full, you never know when a chicken is going to drop in.

Life can get crazy fast! Sorry the Dr. gave you all such panic attacks. Poor things.

Dave would have understood if things had had to change though. He’s good like that.
