Yesterday SHOULD have been a great day. It was set up for a great day. The universe had other plans for me, evidently.
5am - Alarm goes off/hubby comes home (he works nights)
-hit the snooze button
-hubby says 'I have to tell you something and you're gonna be pissed'
-he got ANOTHER speeding ticket. $300. Took $ from IRA to pay it. WTF?
-now I'm up
-let dogs out
-trip down steps
-soap in eyes
-ok, I've only been up 30 minutes and already the day sucks
-where are my shoes???
-why are there 5 huge zits on my face??
-trip over dogs, who now want dog food
-get cream of wheat all over the place
-make sure I have everything for cross country meet today
-where is that stupid blanket?? snacks??
-leave for work
-principal calls to inform me of a parent complain about one of the runners
-call parent and apologize
-teach (or try to, anyhow)
-field phone calls from parents asking about meet (which is out of state)
-leave for meet
-get lost on way to meet
-get informed that child with a peanut allergy has just ingested a peanut. (good Lord, why is this happening??)
-finally get to meet
-boys start their 5k
-waiting for last runner - where is he?
-informed missing runner has had an asthma attack; same runner that ate the peanut
-run the entire 5k looking for him (in jeans, carrying a camera, clipboard, etc)
-girls race should be starting; hoping they can figure this out themselves
-call his mom
-sit in school's infirmary waiting for the Benadryl to work
-call mom again; he is better - covered in hives, but he is stable
-LEAVE for the 1 1/2 hr ride home
-kids hungry (crap)
-stop at taco bell
-head lights on bus not working - SH&T! This would mean calling for a new bus, waiting 2 hours for the bus to get to us PLUS the 2 hour ride home. Ok universe, STOP anytime now.
-debate on going to Wal-Mart and purchasing giant flashlights and duct tape to use as head lights
-call principal (same one that chewed me out earlier) to let her know about the runner thing
-LEAVE taco bell
-YAY - headlights work
-pull bus over b/c kids are hollering on the bus
-move seats - they are pissed (and I am DONE with this trip!)
-drop off at HS
-get back to my school
-wait for parent that isn't there yet
-kid finally gets picked up
-let dogs out
-trip down steps (for the love of pete...)
-finally calm down enough to go to bed
Up at 430am. Ugh. Figures.
-go to gym and pound out a 5k on the treadmill at 4% incline, 5.5 speed
-strength workout, too
-gas up car
-dump entire contents of purse on car seat.
Lovely, the universe isn't done with me yet. I don't know how much more I can stand.
