I can't believe it's already June ! Where has the time gone?
Most people around this time are thinking "Wow,summer is upon us and I am NOT ready!" Well for some things we are ready. Its time for School to be Out, shorts and tank tops, lots of swimming, baseball, watermelon, Sno-Cones and don't forget the Ice Cream! Remember the Orange Push Up? Its still one of my favorites after all these years! Now that I have mentioned the things you ARE ready for, lets get back to the ones that you ARE NOT ready for, or at least you think you aren't. I think we start to panic because we want everything to be perfect and yet there never seems to be enough Help. I'm talking about those precious Engagement Parties, the gorgeous Summer Weddings, the Backyard BBQ get togethers (with lots of sweet tea) and that Summer Vacation that you are still in the process of planning. At first you get so excited about it all, but before you know it you feel that overwhelming feeling starting to creep in. Then comes the Stress! Well that's ok because this is where I can help.
Whether you are a big Family, a Single Mom or Dad, Grandparents, New Moms or Dads, Couples, whatever the case may be WE all need help sometime.
The Weddings and Engagement Parties........I can run errands that you don't have time to do or better yet that you don't want to do. I can pick up out of town guests or relatives from the airport and deliver them to your home or hotel. I can take a list of grocery items and get everything bought, delivered and put away without you having to worry about any of it. I can address and mail out invitations, help you set up the house or venue for the actual party, last minute runs to flower shops, snacks, and drinks. And don't forget the ice!
The Summer Vacations............... You do the planning and Ill help with everything else. Running errands for last minute lists that need to be completed before closing that last suitcase, getting ice chests filled with ice and drinks, making sure your car is filled with gas and the oil has been checked before hitting the road if you are driving. If you are flying then I would make sure that you arrive at the airport on time with tickets and luggage. While you are out of town I can also check on your pets to make sure that they are fed and loved while your away. I can also provide a House Check making sure that the mail and newspaper are brought in, plants are watered, and packages are picked up. Now normally when people return from a vacation and they first get home , they are tired and do not want to run errands the minute they get back. So of course there is no food or drink because you didn't go before leaving town. BUT that's something I could take care of for you. I could actually stock your fridge and pantry while you're gone. Then you can come home and skip that run to the store.
Did someone say T-Ball.........ok so its your turn to bring the snacks and drinks to the game. BUT you forgot! EEEkk!!! Call me and I can deliver that right to the game. Yep! I am a mother and a Grandma. I have been a witness to this very thing. Kids are adorable, but when they get thirsty they want their juice box right then!!
So let's all get ready for a wonderful stress free Summer. Just remember when you need some help its perfectly alright to ask for it. Throw the words "I am just not ready for this " out the door with the dish water as my grandmother use to say. And replace it with "Lets do this" !!
Just Leave It To Babs. You will be glad you did!
