life on a post-it
In this case, I have to talk to him about: mattress, car, book club Thursday, and library book 2/23.
- We are now on mattress #2, and this one has imitated mattress #1 - it has popped a spring. It must be all the roughing around I do with my boyfriends when Steve is out of town.
- As for the car, Steve is sort of, starting to think about, maybe, just possibly, considering buying a new used car. There is a new car that came into the inventory that I want to bring his attention to.
- I have
boozebook club on Thursday evening, so he has to watch the kids.
- Steve's library book is due 2/23...or else it is $.10 a day in fees.
I am sure I am not the only pilot wife that keeps notes like this. Sometimes there are just so many things to talk about and so little time to talk. Or, when you actually speak to your pilot not everything comes to mind, so a lot of items get left out. There are plenty of times when I will call Steve back five times, and each conversation begins with "sorry, I forgot to tell you that..." You see, when you write it all down it will prevent the five extra phone calls.
No joke, here is how the post-it conversation went down with Steve, yesterday. He arrived in PHX and called me. Boy, was I ever prepared to talk to him. I had just gotten a new cell phone, in hopes that my reception would be better, so when he called we were happy that my phone was good again. And then it went bad again, stupid dead zone...so I told him "call the office" and I hung up. I am assuming he heard me. I waited a minute - no call. So, I texted him "call the office."
Seven minutes later Steve texted me back. Something about "going for a run...call you later."
Once he finally called me back, I looked at my post-it. I talked to him about the mattress. And then we talked about the car in the inventory. I was just about to address item #3...
"Hey, I am going to get something to eat and then I am going to sleep." He had to prepare for a red-eye. And that was about the end of our conversation.
Bummer. Oh well...the post-it still remains at my desk at work. You bet I will check off all the items at some point...
