THE WORLD THROUGH MY EYES

You may see things differently, but this is how I view my life.

IT'S JUST ONE OF THOSE DAYS

Woke up this morning at 6:20....need to leave the house at 6:30.

The alarm went off at 5:15, however David turned it off. He was just so tired he didn't even realize it.

I wake up and look at the clock and think OH SHIT!

I get Bre up and tell her she needs to haul some boody.

I jump in the shower. Then I think "OH SHIT" again, because I have to take Collin to before school care because David has an appointment this morning. Which is why I really need to leave at 6:30.

After I jump out of my super quick shower, I wake up my son.

I skip the make up, but bring it with me, so I can do it in the car on the way to work, while I'm stuck in traffic. I know you may think it's dangerous, but only if I'm on my cell phone at the same time.

I'm on my way to drop off my son when I realize that Bre's friend lives right around the corner from my son's school and maybe they can take Bre to school for me, if I drop her off.

I tell Bre to look for my phone in my purse.

She can't find it.

I start searching.

It's not there!

I'M FREAKING OUT!!!!!! Can you imagine going an entire day without your lifeline?

Obviously I can't.

Are you stressed out yet? Just wait, it gets better.

Decided it would be rude to just stop by their house and drop off Bre.

Drop off my son, and since I have to pass home to take Bre to school, I run in to get my phone. Luckily David heard me running up the steps, and met me at the door.

Haul ass to take Bre to school. (Those speed bumps in my condo complex are really taking a toll on my car).

Drop Bre off at 7:20.

Which leaves me 40 minutes to get to work. Totally not enough time.

I finally arrive at 8:15.

Boss sees me and calls me in her office.

Has the "You need to be here on time" talk. Then tells me that I was only on time once last week.

Totally NOT TRUE.

She was out Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. But someone here told here I was only on time once.

I was ACTUALLY on time every single day my boss was out (of course) and even 15 minutes early one of those days. I SWEAR!

So that really pisses me off, because I KNOW FOR A FACT that I was on time.

Great way to start a day huh?

I forgot my phone at home today too! It was painful. I kept calling it to check my messages.

And I always set at least two alarms, just in case. To prevent mornings like yours. Those are the worst. This morning I don't remember the first alarm going off. So glad I had the 2nd.
