So here I am...

... in my bathroom cleaning the toilet; just trying to get the upstairs bathrooms cleaned in the twenty minutes I have before it's time to start dinner. Isaac wakes up from his nap. I bring him in the bathroom and resume cleaning the toilet. Just as I finish washing his hands for the second time after he plays in the cleanser filled toilet bowl the door bell rings. At the same time Austin comes running up the stairs crying because Landon wants to watch "Love Bug" instead of ride bikes. I tell Austin he can ride his bike on our back patio or the garage - neither is a satisfactory answer and he keeps crying. Landon is whining from the doorway because it's not fair that he can't do what he wants.
I get to the door to see Landon hiding behind the open door and commence scolding him for ringing the doorbell and teasing Austin and whining. Then I hear, "uh hum... Hello?" I look around the corner to see a woman who is obviously some sort of soliciter. I think, "Dang it! How many times have I thought about putting up a no soliciting sign?" The lady starts in on her schpeal about financial planning. I give her my best, "stop talking, I'm busy" look. Just to make sure she gets the hint, Isaac starts crying from upstairs. She says, "oh I'm sorry you must be busy. Do you work from home?"

Okay lady. No I don't "work" from home, but seriously, just TRY doing my job. And by the way, is ANYONE investing right now? Why are you bugging me?!

Oh my goodness! I feel like I am having flashbacks of so many moments today, minus the annoying solicitor. "Do you work from home?" UM, YEAH!

You gotta love that question--do you work?--it's one of the lamest ever. Your five minute story sums it all up. Miss you guys!

Great post. I think our next vinyl lettering order should be for 'no soliciting' signs for the door! ;)
