I have been busy being unnecessarily busy(or U.B. from here on because typing unnecessarily is well, unnecessary and ridiculously long).
And if you are over the age of 18, and have any inkling of a responsible adult life you can relate. Being U.B. happens to the best of us. Especially when you have family nearby (or mooch-y friends). They plan parties and all sorts of well wish/bring me your money or gifts type events. And they generally try to corral you in for assistance in planning or setting up their lovely shindigs.
When they aren't screwing up your weekends you can find them calling for petty requests like what was the number for the guy who fixed your ac unit last year, or what the name of that recipe was with those ingredients that you have no idea what they are talking about. And it is typically when you are so damn busy doing other things (like legitimately working at your place of employment) that you just want to tell them that they can find that guys number, and that famous recipe by taking the telephone and shoving it up their ass.
The remedy for U.B.? Clearly I have none to suggest because it is taking over my life right now. I am attempting to supplement my own plans and aspirations into my short lived weekends. But so far no good on thwarting my relatives and acquaintances. I guess that is what I get for wanting to be selfish! At least once the kid gets here I have a better excuse for not wanting to plan and set up their shower-birthday bash-brunch-coming in party-going out party-what have you... Yay for the tiny little person growing inside of my uterus!
What is your remedy for U.B.?
