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.
