What service man comes on time...

Ok, for Labor day Zak and I decided to finally get a new TV for upstairs because the TV we inherited from my mom's house was incredibly heavy and large.  We went with the Panasonic plasma, which we love! Well a week after we bought it it stopped working.  It would just not turn on and the annoying red light kept blinking at us.  So we call for a repair man. He came out a week later and couldn't fix it because he didn't have the right part.  So they called last week and told us they would be there between 1 and 5 to fix it.  Just a side note what kind of time frame is that!!! So fast forward to this morning.  I am watching two toddlers and they are both very much toddlers.  Kit is in the all too fun " I am just going to hit you until you give me what I want!" sage and Troy, well he is a two year old boy, what more can be said.  So I get the kids down for a nap at 1:00 which is an hour early, but to save their own lives I thought it was necessary.  I decided to jump in the shower and get ready for the day, Yes it is 1 pm and I still haven't brushed my teeth....BACK OFF! Well I am enjoying a well deserved hot shower and I hear "THUD THUD THUD...RING RING RING!" OK word to the wise from one to four it is not necessary to be so demanding at the front door! Well then I remember, Oh shoot it must be between 1 and 5! I am literally in the middle of shaving one leg and have a deep conditioner soaking on my hair. So I rinse quick grab the towel and throw on the first thing I can find on the floor, and run to the front door.  I mean I haven't had tv for over three weeks now and it is an emergency.  I can't let this service man get away! Needless to say the kids are still asleep my tv works and I think I am going to go shave my other leg now!
