What you Need to Know...

First of all, you need to know that my nanny is wonderful. She is changing my life!

Today she said, "Hey, if you ever need me to do housework for you, just let me know. I mean, I'm here anyway!"

I broke out laughing, dancing, and started singing the "Hallelujah Chorus." She may have been slightly confused by my reaction...

I did tell her that while school is in, and she's only here a few hours, she needs to just focus on her school work...However, this summer, there will probably be chores to do. She was totally on board.

Next, you need to know that my mailman is stealing my mail....

I don't know why. I just know that he is.

Did you know I can go as much as 3 days without receiving a single piece of mail? Did you know I did not receive my electric bill, my phone bill, or my credit card bill at all for the month of February. I noticed they should all be coming due (thank you online bill pay), yet I hadn't received paper copies...I had to call and get my balances. I've gone to my Post Office, and they express disbelief that I don't get all of my mail...They think I overlook it.

Fact: I pay bills the day I get them. I'm afraid I'll forget to pay them if I don't, and since this is the system I've always employed, it works for us...I can't imagine I've suddenly started mislocating...

Did I just type mislocating? I mean misplacing...

I can't imagine I've suddenly started misplacing a minimum of one bill a month!

What does he do with it? Is he burying it in his back yard like that one mailman from years past, who was rebelling against junk mail?

The next thing you need to know is that I was never a good Psych nurse...

I revealed this to 3 of my male coworkers today that laughed and laughed and laughed at me...

And then they laughed some more!

"I'm sure you weren't! I bet the patients were like, 'Too much information! I wanted to share, not listen to you share!' "

"Dear Lord, I thank you for this beautiful person, and all of the personalities you've given her. I ask in your Name that you remove all but 2 of her personalities, and that those personalities will be to your glory. In Jesus Name, Amen."

"No! No! She would say, come here. I think you just need a hug..."

Obviously, these guys don't know me at all!

Some other things you need to know:

I do pray with my patients.

I do talk a lot.

I do hug my patients.

I was laughing so hard at their impersonations of me, I nearly wet my pants and spewed coffee all over myself...

Because, clearly, I can laugh at myself...

Finally, you need to know what Popcorn wrote in her journal:

My favirot famus Afrkin Amarkin is....
1. Rosa Parks
2. I think she was nice.
3. Because she saved some suff when the White house fell down.
4. At least that is what I think she done.
5. Well I like here.

WAIT!!! I have one more!

The most import peorsn in my life is...God.
1. God is.
2. Becase he is the king.
3. I love him more than enthing.
4. I will not love enthing more then him.
5. I love my mom and my dad but God is my God.

And with that, Gentle Reader, I will say: AMEN!!!

Love it! (Hey, do you think the postman is also paying your bills? That would be a nice added bonus!) Popcorn's lists were precious. My son asked me yesterday, "Mom, Jesus always saves, doesn't he?" Ahh, how I love it when my son wants to talk about Jesus!

What exactly did Rosa Parks save when the white house fell down? Sometimes I'm out of it and didn't know about this event!

I'm sure you're being sarcastic, Sister Librarian, but just in case you're not, Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on a bus. I have no idea what she means by the White House falling down. That is why I thought it was so funny!
