My day is off to a lovely start.
My kids have both been really good sleepers, thank goodness. Sissy stopped taking naps a long while back, so we put her to bed around 8pm and she doesn't wake up until around 8ish the next morning.
The Evil Twin and Buddy leave for work/school by about 7:30, so many mornings (especially in the colder months), I will crawl back in bed and listen for the baby on the monitor.
Sometimes, I doze in and out, but mostly, I just kind of snuggle for a bit under the cozy covers.
Shortly after 8 this morning, the phone starts ringing. We don't keep a phone in our bedroom and I'm lucky if I can even hear it from down the hall, but like I said, I was awake and listening to the monitor anyway, so when the phone rang, I bolted down the hall to grab it.
It was Buddy, calling from school. Guess who forgot his valentine cards this morning? Yep.
I got Sissy up out of bed, got her dressed and threw on some suitable for public clothes myself and dashed out the door.
I left from our side door, which is under the carport. I didn't even bother locking the door behind me. (I would really feel sorry for any dipshit desperate enough to try to rob our house - it is NOT in a convenient to rob location).
I get to the school and drag Sissy in with me. The secretary was at her desk and said that she had told Buddy she would bring his cards upstairs when I got there. For some reason, the old secretary (who retired years ago) was there, too. This woman always looks at me as if I have a dick growing out my forehead and always has greeted me in a nasty manner.
I am not a morning person - I wanted to spit in her face when I got the "Why do you have the Dirty Sanchez?" look. Instead, I mumbled to the new secretary, thanked her and dragged Sissy out as fast as I could.
Mind you, I hadn't even showered yet. So, I had pulled my hair back into a ponytail and didn't have any make up on, plus, I was wearing my lounge pants as the one pair of jeans that fit me are in the dirty clothes right now.
Oh well, I got a Sausage McMuffin out of the deal!
Now, I'm off to get a shower and later, I have to make yet another appearance at the school. Buddy's class is having their Valentine's Day party at 1:45 and as co-homeroom mom, I need to be there to help...
PS. I'm sorry I didn't get around to replying yesterday on the comments - it was a mucho hectic day - but yes, I do have some great friends and getting goodies by mail is always fun.
