Day One of no husband, no kids:
7:00 a.m. Wake up. Make coffee for hubby, make cocoa for kids. Put in commuter cups. Clean up entire cup of cocoa that older kid spills. Clean up hubby's entire cup of coffee that older kid also spills. Pretend to be happy as I usher my family out the door.
7:30 a.m. Get call from hubby about forgotten snacks. Look at front door. Confirm forgotten snacks were indeed forgotten. Get in car with bad hair and ratty clothes to drop off forgotten snacks to hubby. Chat with headmaster of school in bad hair and ratty clothes. Say goodbye to family again.
7:40 a.m. Start laundry, do dishes, make frozen lunches, feed dogs, water dogs, get dressed, rush to work.
10:30 a.m. Why does it hurt to drink coffee? Drink some water instead. Ow, that hurts more. Call dentist and make emergency appointment for 3:00.
2:45 p.m. Arrive at dentist's office. Fill out tons of paperwork. Explain problem to dentist. Get half of face numbed so dentist can dig out twenty year old filling. Wait while dentist attends to regularly scheduled patients. Leave dentist's office with numb face and new filling at 5:30. (Absolutely not complaining... thank you to my dentist for seeing me on a Friday afternoon with a fully booked schedule!)
5:15 p.m. Go to gas station to fill up and get car wash. Sit in car wash line for 40 minutes.
6:15 p.m. Arrive home with numb face and hunger pains. Pick up mail that was dropped to mail slot. Is that a notice from the library? All my books are turned in...
Nope. It's a ticket from one of those videotaped intersection. Didn't come to an absolute complete stop on 9/2. Close, but not quite. Watch video four times. Nope, still not quite. Check close up of face. Wow, I look bloated. Say good bye to $410 and hello to traffic school.
7:40 p.m. Finish blog entry and leave for jujitsu... alone. This is going to be a long weekend.
