I'm so pathetic...

...and lucky at the same time. Why? This morning, TBF went to Basel airport to start his journey to Chicago, where he'll be for a week visiting family and friends, the dentist, the shops, the restaurants, etc. In his last moments at home I was running through in my head all the things he always does that I'm gonna have to do while he's gone. The moment at which I decided I am pathetic was when I realised I have to get the mail myself...it won't take the elevator by itself and let itself into the apartment. I swear...if TBF hadn't mentioned getting the mail on our way out this morning I probably would have gone all week without collecting it!!! So I decided I was a pretty pathetic case. TBF even said somehting last night that was kind of like "if I went down in the plane it would take you forever to figure out how to pay bills and sort out all the accounts". Folks...I'm not stupid...really. I'm just a little airheaded when it comes to running the house. But that's why I'm also lucky at the same time. TBF takes such good care of me that I don't have to do all those little things around the house that involve paperwork (which I hate). I'm good at feeding King, so don't worry, he won't go hungry. And, I'm pretty good at the laundry, vacuuming and anything involved in the kitchen. But when it comes to the home office...I run like a sissy! Ok ...I may be getting the mail, but that doesn't mean I have to open it, does it???
Just the thought makes me tired...I think I'll go read in bed now. Unlike TBF, I go to bed early when he's away.
Ciao.

Well I hope you enjoy your time alone. And don't let the mail pile up too high! I guess some of us are good at certain things. At least you know your weaknesses!

Poor Mrs. TBF.
Enjoy your time alone and don't sweat the small stuff :-) TBF will be back in plenty of time to take care of the administrative side of things .

Ms Mac said...

Yes, enjoy your alone time, reading your recipe books and watching whatever you like on tv!

Is there not a young man in the building who you could flutter your eyelashes at to bring up your mail for you? ;-)

You are extra lucky. Paperwork and bills make me cry, even when the money is there to pay them, and Nice Husband still makes me face the demons, even though he is a closet accountant. He still does it behind my back, but wants me to have the 'experience' of paperwork. Sigh.

I HATE paperwork! I have to take a deap breath everytime I pay bills. Luckily, OrangeX likes it. He'd probably offer to do mine, too.

Ladies...thanks for your words o support! It's nice to know that others feel the same way!
Ms Mac...you are such a naughty devil. Let's see if TBF has anything to say about a potential PMC..Personal Mail Carrier!!!

Oh yes,Mrs. Mac is so clever - I think you could easily delegate all these responsibilities and just sit back and take it easy the whole time TBF is gone.
