Not Off to a Good Start

My first clue should have been the fact that all three munchkins had gotten themselves up before the sun, claiming "we were just tired of sleeping so we got up during the nighttime to watch cartoons".

1. Couldn't get my daughter's hair to fix the right way, so I had to redo it three times (ok, 5 if you count the first two attempts.)
2. Couldn't find one of the shoes I had set out the night before,
we were approaching "late".
3. Couldn't find the keys to our van. ANYWHERE.
Screw it, we ARE late.
4. Realized we were SO out of gas that we were running on fumes. Whatever. Add another 10 minutes, I DON'T CARE.
5. Realized it must be bad because even the annoying blue van conveniently parked in the bus exit strip (preventing any parents from shortcutting their way through to the elementary school) is now gone.
6. Couldn't find parking anywhere in the school lot, so we had to park at the FAR end, walking with all three munchkins (at munchkin pace, of course), with the boy crying through the halls because he wanted his toys, the girl yelling "be quiet! we don't talk in the hallways!", and the baby stopping to look at every picture on the wall and every crack on the floor.

We even managed to miss the announcements AND the depressing soap opera type classical music playing in the hallways.

And it's only the fourth day of school. Loverly. Plain and simple.


  1. Wow, I can barely get myself out of the door in time for work. Having to do that times 3, your superwoman!

  2. I'm tellin' ya! You are already giving those mom's a run for their money for "Mom of the Year"!

    Will you keep your title 2 consecutive years??? :)

    I told Doodle that she isn't to get in trouble for talking this year and I can't get any tardies! LOL!

  3. WOW... here's hoping for a WAY BETTER MORNING TOMORROW!

  4. I'm so glad you're back - I've been a little out of touch, so I totally missed your return to the world of blogging!!

    I'm glad you have internet and you're all safe and sound.. even if you are running late! That's just normal for us!

  5. Next week will be so much better - at least that's what I told myself last year!

  6. Ah, I remember those days! Now they're old enough to get themselves up and out--but, of course, they don't, causing bitterness and rage on my part and theirs, so there's something for you to look forward to! :)

  7. How funny! Man, I just LOVE mornings like that, lol!

  8. Damn, I had the same type of sucked!

    Here's to a better one tomorrow!


Oh come on-- the least you can do is say HELLO!! You didn't come all this way to turn around and walk away, did you? DID YOU??
