One of those mornings…..


I rolled out of bed this morning cursing the infant teething process and wishing that we could have another time change so I could gain another hour of sleep.  After I stretched and got my bearings, I went to wake Amelia up for school.  It’s becoming increasingly difficult to wake her up in the morning, so when I walked into her room, I was on a mission.  I stepped up onto the bottom rung of the ladder to her loft bed and started saying her name.  I shook her shoulder and was thinking about finding a song on my phone to play her when she popped up into a sitting position.

Amelia: “What??”

Me: (slightly annoyed) “You need to get up”

Amelia: (looking at me) “Why?”

Me: “You need to get ready for school”

Amelia: “No I don’t”

**It’s at this point that I remember that today is election day… and there’s no school on election day.**

Me: “…oh shit”  (stepping down from the ladder and walking toward her door) “see you in half an hour”

Amelia:   “Well, I’m awake NOW.”

And then my 6 year old daughter spent the next 30 minutes sitting in my bed watching TV and periodically looking over at me trying to sleep and chuckling.

I also managed to spill my coffee on a jumbo pack of toilet paper left in the middle of the kitchen and get a monster paper cut while reaching into my purse for my sunglasses.

Bad Day

Luckily, it’s not MY bad day.

I passed this on my way to work yesterday. 

truck

I can only assume that the driver took the left turn too quickly and lost it.  This is the intersection of two fairly straight roads, so I have no idea what else could have happened.  Oddly, traffic wasn’t really backed up.

 

My friend Kate told me that my blog needs more photos (which makes sense coming from a photographer), so I’m going to try to oblige.  Maybe next time I can post a picture that DOESN’T involve a wrecked car!
