The less you do
Tonight it was open day at the school. You know those days where the school brings out their best and advertise themselves. You know, I must say, the school went through SO much trouble. It was a huge success. There were so many children and parents. The kids had a ball. I was exhausted.
I had four kids with me (Jason’s one friend came with me). Me and 4 kids. No husband. Just me and 4 kids. Between a zillion children and their parents. Little child following the bigger children, who are still not big enough to just stand out between so many other 5/6 year olds. Oh my word. Exhausting!!!!
I was standing with one of the moms when she asked me if I helped to decorate some of the tables. I explained that at this stage, I just could not. I’m already helping with the concert and with me having clients every hour, I just don’t have the time.
She said that she could also not help, since she had two birthday parties this week…..o.k.a.y. … I’m waiting for her to add something catastrophic to that but no…she couldn’t help because she had two parties. She doesn’t work and she used that as an excuse? You know that saying that the less you do, the less you can do…so true. If I were her, I’d just say no and not use that as an excuse 😉
