Sooo I get a call from the Balloon Guy’s wife AKA The Face Painter who’s coming to Meggers Birthday Party tomorrow. The conversation goes like this…
“I didn’t call to early did I?”
“Nope I’m getting ready for work. Who is this?”
“Oh I’m sorry, it’s …… I was calling because I was at …… yesterday and there was a lady who asked me if I’d be at Meghans party tomorrow as she was going to be taking the pictures.”
“Oh oh that’s Marcia she probably just got the days mixed up, I’ll give her a buzz.”
“Oh okay.. well then I called Pizza Hut because I was sure that you had said Sunday.”
“Yep that’s right Sunday at …..”.
“Well here’s the thing, they had no idea what I was talking about.”
“What do you mean? Do you know who you talked with?”
Yeah can you see my face right now, completely freaking out I have 20 kids coming.
“Well they said they don’t open till noon and they don’t have anything scheduled.”
“OK I’ll take care of it, thanks for calling and well thank god you called to check, see ya tomorrow at ….”
I got off the phone and started to panic a little, first I checked the invites I sent out, because I’ve been known to write something completely different to what I’m thinking, nope I put the right date and time on there. PHEW!
Now I’m in a bit of a panic! Hmmmm, well I’ll go to work and call them around 10AM and see what’s going on. Of course I was pacing the office till 10AM (I’ve got 20 kids coming! Oh God I’ve got 20 kids coming!) called Pizza Hut and Balloon Guy’s Wife was right, the manager that I talked too never put it in the computer as a Birthday Party it was only put in as a tour.
You see Pizza Hut does birthday parties where they serve the pizza, but they also do tours for schools and Mother’s Club type things where the kids get to tour the place and make a personal pan pizza, what I did was combine the two.
So now everything is squared away for tomorrow and we’re all set, but thank god it’s a small town and the error was caught. There’s definitely a little angel on my shoulder me thinks!
