Sorry, y’all, but it’s another Works-For-Me Wednesday from the archives–I am smack dab in the middle of an unusually busy week. The following post was originally published in August 2006:
I keep a typed (in bold colors), laminated list on my desk. The paper is entitled Babysitter Information, and on it is every phone number imaginable for any sitters who come to our house. It includes our home number, both our cell phone numbers and Hubs’ office number. It contains our home address (at the very top, to give to a 9-1-1 operator, *shudder*), and the phone numbers of all our neighbors and nearby friends, as well as grandparents. That way, when I’m leaving in a hurry (which I always am whenever I hire a sitter, for some reason), I don’t have to write it all out each time. I feel confident knowing our sitter has access to so many numbers, should she need them (which, incidentally, she never has).
Next week, Wednesday falls on Independence Day. With a beg-your-pardon to the international crowd, we Americans will be taking the day off–no WFMW around here. We’ll resume July 11th.
If you have a handy-dandy tip to share with everyone, please leave your link below. WFMW guidelines can be found here.
