She's a Maniac!

So today I'm going through my daughters' room with them--and it's a wreck to say the least--pulling garbage and dirty laundry out of their toy bins and giving directions on where to put things. I'm also blasting my Pure 80s CD on my 9 year old's CD player to make the task a little less tedious.

I'm bouncing around to the lyrics "She's a maniac, maniac, that's for sure..." whilst attempting to organize the chaos that is their bedroom and I shout an order over the loud music to the girls. They hesitate to follow, as usual, and I yell out over the music, "Just do it!"

I look up at my son, who I realize is holding the phone at me and I yell, "who is it?" He shrugs and passes me the phone. "Turn it down!" I call out over the music and reach for the phone.

"Hello?" I ask, thinking it's probably my hubby on the other end of the line, checking to see how my organization mission is going.

"Is this Nellie?" I hear a man's voice on the other end, but it's definitely not my hubby's.

"Yes, it is." I'm feeling bashful about the music and the hollering that went on before getting passed the phone. Oh well, it's probably just another telemarketer anyway, right?

"This is Bill Gephardt..." Yes, the Bill Gephardt from KUTV New's Get Gephardt.

Yikes! Hahahahahahahaha. What a great first impression, eh? I laughed, fumbled out an apology and told him I was going through my kids' rooms today. He assured me he'd been there himself with his own kids.

Anyway, long story short, he's looking into our situation with Bank of America/Countrywide and we may just get this story on the news. Wish us luck!
