“The Voice in my Head”

During my parents’ visit there were a couple of issues that came up.  Little had an accident at the pet store and while there was a pull-up for her, there was no clean pair of shorts for her to wear.  The solution was obvious but I had just never taken the time to put a bag with a change of clothes into the back of the van.

Another issue was the fact that I apparently never have my phone near me when it rings.  Now that we have no land line it is a problem.  It was suggested that I carry the phone in my pocket.  I hate the thought of carrying the phone in my pocket, but it would increase the likelihood that I won’t miss any calls.

There is a line in the Sandra Bullock/Hugh Grant film, “Two Weeks Notice” that goes something like this, “for better or worse, she’s the voice in my head pushing me to do better.” I AM better.

Last week on vacation KB had an accident and there was a change of clothes in the car!! Also, I have been trying to reach Little’s case worker for over a month and he kept missing my calls and I kept missing his . . . until I put the phone in my pocket.  Sigh.
