And the award goes to...

If there was an award for the longest dumb moment I would for sure win that prize.  Hands down.  My mind must be on another planet.  Let me explain.

Monday I decided to prepare a coffee cake for ladies bible study which I had stuck in my head was on Tuesday.  I finished preparing my lesson and did a quick review Monday night before bed.  

Tuesday morning I overslept and had to rush to get myself ready.  Carson and Luke were also still asleep and it was 8:45.  We were supposed to be there at 9:00.  Needless to say we were going to be late which isn't that big of a deal since the first 15 minutes we eat and chat.  

I got everyone dressed, in the van and on the road at 9:05.  I was happy that we weren't going to be extremely late since the church is only 5 minutes down the road.  

I pulled into the parking lot and noticed there were only 10 cars parked when the usual is 5 times that amount.  I thought to myself that maybe it was cancelled due to the MLK holiday or the possibility of bad weather.  

And as I was about to park the van it hit me - like a shovel in the face.  Today was Tuesday.  Bible study is not until Wednesday.  I was an entire day early.  Unbelievable!  

And to think I could have continued to sleep and more importantly I could have let the boys continue to sleep.  The boys were understanding when I explained to them why we were going back home or maybe they were still half asleep.  

And if that wasn't enough, the day just continued to get better.  I say that in the most sarcastic voice possible. 

When I got back home I realized that I forgot to put a note in Taylor's folder for him to stay after school for basketball, which I am sure he forgot about as well.  So I knew I would have to bring him a change of clothes.  I picked up the phone to call the school and wouldn't you know it, the phone wasn't working.  No dial tone, nothing.  

After I called the school on my cell phone I contacted the phone company to report the issue hoping it was something they could fix while I was on hold, but of course not.  They would have to come out to the house and look into the problem.  So I have to sit around and wait for them to decided when they want to show up.  They gave me a time between 10 am and 8 pm.  Yes, 10 hours. 

Forget it.  I'm going back to bed.   


  1. Don't be too hard on yourself because it sounds exactly like something I would do. Like, last week when we rushed to get to church right after work for cleaning. There are 6 teams of people that volunteer every 6 weeks to clean (we have a small congregation and we try to save money). We got there right on time, but no one else showed up. 15 minutes later, I finally called our team leader and was informed that church cleaning is next week. We were 7 days early!

    Hope your Wednesday is a lot better than your Tuesday was!!

  2. Hey we all do silly, not so smart things sometimes! Back to bed is usually the best plan in my opinion.

    LOVE you new name and look by the way!:)

  3. Is it something in the air? No, it can't be - we live too far apart. I'm having a stupid day too...and it's turning into a long one. Sigh. I say we blame the husbands. :)

  4. This sounds like something I would do too!! The difference is that you can blame it on being crazy busy with your 3 boys and I can only blame it on Jake the dog - a little different. Hope your day today went a little better than yesterday. ~Laura
