When my children were little, "Annie" was a huge hit. We had a baby music box that played "Tomorrow" on it that I swear became the reason Emily had to watch "Annie" over and over and over again when she was a bit older. (It had nothing to do with the fact she had red hair…) Somehow, whenever the topic came up of when something was going to happen in our household, my eldest son would say "Someday tomorrow". It became a catch-phrase in our house and also became known as comparable to the phrase "the second Tuesday of next week". In other words, if something was going to happen 'someday tomorrow', the likelihood of it happening was pretty slim.
Remember when I contacted the internet repairman on Monday he said he'd be out "tomorrow or the next day"? Um…yeah. Guess who didn't show up? Hubs called him Wednesday and left a message on his machine letting him know I needed the internet repaired so I could work from home. Obviously he wasn't impressed. Yesterday we lucked out. We were supposed to get 1-3" of snow and parts of the state got over 4". We got a dusting. Hubs called the service guy again about noon. This time he got him 'live' and told him I was having surgery and needed to have the internet repaired so I could work from home. His response? "I'll be out tomorrow afternoon." For those of you keeping track, that would be today. This afternoon. Should we start a pool? No… too depressing. I propose we try an experiment. On the day of my surgery, I'm going to ask all of you to take a minute in your morning to send a good thought for me out into the universe (if you believe in God, pray, if not… just that universal thing works for me!). I'm nothing if not willing to accept positive thinking from you all. As I mentioned, experimentally, lets all focus for a minute at noon today (CST) and send a silent thought to my internet serviceman. It can be nothing more than "get your ass to Sue's house"… but c'mon, give it a try. Let's see if we can boost this guy off his backside and get my internet working again! I know we can do it if we all join together!
