How Did You Start Your Day?
Have you ever had one of those days where you thought, I should go back to bed?
Today was one of those days for me. Mornings rarely change for me when I have my kids. Get up way too early hear #1’s alarm going off and she makes no move to turn it off so it’s blasting as I am getting my robe on. Off to wake kid #2 up. He is always cranky and doesn’t want to get up. I have to go back into his room about 3 times before he finally with 15 minutes left jumps in the shower and runs around like a mad man. In the meantime, I’m waking up #1 so she can turn off her alarm clock.
So where did my morning go wrong?
No one should ever have to deal with stupid people before they have had a shower. Well yep, that was the first sign that I should go back to bed (but that’s a real long story). Then I go into my office, start the computer up and BAM black screen. That right there is enough to send me right over the edge. Sometimes I amaze myself, shut down, restart in safe mode, restore to an earlier saved point….technology has saved me from technology. Oh the irony.
As I’m dealing with the computer #2 misses his bus. I think ok here we go another reason to go back to bed. Take him to school. Get home finish rebooting and #1 misses her bus. WHAT – really. So I think to myself it is most definitely time to go back to bed.
Then as I’m driving home after a stellar conversation with and dropping #1 off, I realized I got an extra 15 minutes of individual time with each of my kids. It’s amazing when things work out that way and even better that I realized it. So now off to start my “work” day.
