I am entering credit card information into the secure site for Home Depot. Soon I will be the proud owner of 8 fire extinguishers, that I will hand off to Town and Country and then I will collect my reimbursable expenses.

I grab my coffee cup and wander into the living room. A slow, but consistent summer rain has been falling for hours. And it is starting to drive me NUTS. I have things to do and I don’t need the rain literally raining on my agenda and dry cleanables.

I hear the computer ping. Email. I and the coffee mug go back to the computer and sit down at the desk.

Email from Town and Country:  I need smoke/carbon monoxide detectors. What do you recommend? I need 4 – one for each floor.

Sigh. This would have been nice to know BEFORE I purchased the fire extinguishers. But I am sure I can open a new cart and pick up both orders on Friday.

Email from Desi Girl: (I don’t feel like working) …. make it … stop raining …. It is making me NOT happy …

Immediately Email from Town and Country: …. that's gonna take me a should be good tomorrow

Email from Desi Girl: ... but I am cranky now! I cannot wait 'til tomorrow; my silk dress will be ruined today! :(

Email from Town and Country: …you should have told me yesterday.

Deeeeeep sigh. Why must he be charming? Why can’t he meet his silicone bride already and put me out of misery? Because I don’t think I am going to move on, until he moves. I know – it is pathetic, but it is the honest truth.
