I need to add "vodka" to my office supply order

What's better than a slushy Monday morning commute? Getting a phone call from the CEO a few minutes after you arrive asking you to join him for the first segment of his call with the Board Chair. And an email a few minutes after his call ends asking you to join him and the Chief Legal Counsel for another meeting so that the three of you can "brainstorm." These two meetings are on top of the meeting you already have scheduled with him to go over the things you need him to approve so that you can go forward with your planning of the conference that has been dumped into your lap because of your "stepping up to the plate" to support Boss, now that he does not have an assistant. And the morning is barely half done...

Who's Who

    Hubby- aka DH My husband since 1995. He is the head of the band department at a college prep school, and dabbles as a wanna-be pop star.

    The Princess- aka DD. Third grader at the local parochial school. Loves butterlies, sparkly things, the color purple and has recently developed a crush on one of the twins from "The Suite Life of Zach and Cody". Is ready for her teenage years, having already perfected her exasperated sigh and dramatic eye-roll.

    Hoss- aka DS1. Kindergartener and resident spirited child. His aunt likes to call him "the evil genius" because of his penchant for letting a lack of intellectual stimulation lead him into mischief. Likes trucks, sports, building things and burping. His current favorite word is "underwear."

    Lil Joe- aka DS2. Born in 2003. Doesn't say much we can understand, but has mastered the important stuff ("eat!", "Wash hands!", "Want chocolate ones!", "Hockey game!") Likes to push buttons, much to the consternation of whoever is trying to watch a DVD. Firmly refuses to use the potty, despite evidence that he is physically ready to be out of diapers, indicating a level of stubborn that eclipses even that of his parents and siblings.

    Me? I'm the Mama. That's all you need to know.
