I am typically a pretty upbeat kind of gal… as long as you don’t throw a kink in my schedule.
Listen, most of us women think exactly alike. We are the movers and the shakers in the marriage. We are the list makers and the task doers. And we are extremely good at it. While we are smack dab in the middle of one thing, we’ve got 48 other things on our minds and sometimes we just need to be left alone so we can tend to our list.
Let me clue you men in on something, God made us women to be great multi-taskers. How on earth do you think things get done? Seriously guys, we are so good at it that we make YOU think that you deserve the accolades instead of us. Not that I’m bragging.
And one more thing..
We’ve gotten so good at multi-taskin’ and checkin’ things off that you men have no idea that you’re somewhere between grocery shopping, cleaning the windows and dusting the furniture on our to-do list. But since this blog is “G” rated, I’ll stop right there.
In the mornings before I put one foot on the floor, I’ve already mentally began to prepare my list of “to do’s”. I hop out of bed dancin’ to music that’s in my head and get to it.
See what I mean about being upbeat? If you begin your day with a song , a positive attitude and a love for Jesus then all things are possible.
Anyhoo, on with my story and my to-do list-
Item numero uno: Get ready for the day.
Cowboy comes in to the bathroom as I’m minding my own business and spritzing my face-
COWBOY: I know morning isn’t the best time to ask for help, but the printer isn’t working.
I immediately look up and give him my best version of the stink-eye.
ME: When did it stop working?
COWBOY: It wasn’t working yesterday.
ME: So, let me get this straight. It wasn’t working yesterday and you’re asking me now, this morning to fix it?
ME: What have I told you about morning time? Unless you’re bleeding, (I give him a quick look over) and you are not, morning is not the time to ask me to help you. So sorry Cowboy. That’s not going to work for me.
COWBOY: Why do you have to be so mean about it?
ME: We had all that time last night that I could have fixed it. And you’re asking me now? Right before I leave for work? Right now?
COWBOY: Yes, I’m asking you now.
I walk out of the bathroom, with my arms up in the air-
ME: (Yelling back at him) This is the last time I’m helping you in the morning. Seriously. Next time ask me at night.
Four days later-
Cowboy comes into the bathroom-
COWBOY: I know you said not to ask you for anything in the morning but..
ME: Nope, do not finish that sentence mister. I do not have time in the mornings to fix your issues. So NO. The answer is no.
COWBOY: You don’t have to get so mean about it! Can you just show me how one more time?
ME: (Tossing my mascara tube in the sink so I can be dramatic). Sweet Jesus! Show you what?
COWBOY: How to get the printer to work?
I lean over the sink, look up towards the ceiling and say a quick prayer…
Dear sweet baby Jesus, please grant me some patience with this man because he’s driving me bat *#** crazy and I will not be able to fight the urge to poke him in the head with my tube of mascara. And I’m sorry for swearing but it’s his fault.
’til next Sunday y’all- 𝔁𝓸, 𝓣𝓪𝓶𝓶𝔂 ❥
