Mom guilt inducing..
So, yesterday, around 4ish, the Mr. called and said he was going to be late, could I please call my parents to get Buffy (the Mr. is scheduled to work until 6 but if something goes wrong, it can be 6:30, which is a problem. My parents have agreed to be 'backup' if this happens--it's happened only once, yesterday).
The Mr. had tried to call, hadn't gotten an answer, and wasn't going to be accessible by phone again.
I said sure.
then I had a meeting. And a fire drill. and a chemical situation. and some paperwork. And I sat down at 5 and went *sigh* "YAY, time to do my regular work." and worked at my desk, next to a phone I could use (but didn't) for an hour.
and I locked up the room at 6 and went "HOLY SHIT" and called my parents in a tizzy.
Apparently, my parents had gotten the Mr's message and acted on it w/o waiting for input from me.
God love 'em, I'd have been mortified and in trouble if they hadn't.
