Yikes!

Mike was back to work today after 12 days vacation.  Matt had to be at the hospital for 9:00 and Marcus had to be dropped off at Nanny’s before that.  Back to solo mornings.

I set my alarm clock last night for 7:30 ~ plenty of time.  I even remembered to turn the alarm clock ON.  Smarter than the average bear, I am. 😉

7:51AM I bolt up out of bed like a shot.  Why didn’t the ^%$# alarm clock go off?  Oh wait.  It did, I mean it is, I think.  What’s going on? Oh brother.  The ear plugs I have started using because of Mike’s snoring obviously worked better than I thought they did. Ooppss.

So now I’m in panic-mode.  Fly out of the bedroom, have to get Marcus up.  Thankfully I bump into him out in the hallway as he’s announcing to me that there’s blue sky outside.  Yeah, ok, wicked, thanks for that Moo.  I explain to him that I slept in and ask him (in the nicest, sweetest voice possible) to go get dressed as fast as he can.  For once, my 4 year old didn’t argue or ask a million questions.  I grab the least wrinkled thing I can find, look in the mirror and decide it’s an “it’ll have to do” hair day and I am amazed to be walking out the door at 8:22 right on schedule to drop Marcus off at 8:30 and be at the hospital in plenty of time.  Yay me!

Matt and I arrived at 8:50 to find a really close parking spot so we were registering for EKG before we knew it.  I think we might have been waiting less than 10 minutes when she called us.  By 9:15 I was texting Mike that we were done en-route back to get Marcus and drop them all off home with Nanny.

Matt spent the day (because of a filed-trip) home cleaning out our shed, Marcus spent most of the day with Auntie Rhonda making muffins and I spent the day trying to recoup the time I lost this morning.

There’s nothing worse than sleeping in.  Even though I ended up being on time for everything I was totally out of sorts.   And now, I can’t wait to go to bed tonight ~ after Big Bang Theory, Flashpoint and Grey’s, of course.

Until next time…
