We Are The Champions
Queen has nothing on me and my husband! We need to leave the house by 7:25 each morning in order to get me dropped off at work, and Little Boy to school and my husband to work on time. Fortunately, Little Boy's school and my husband's work are one and the same, so that cuts down on the time. And normally, we do just fine. After all, we have a very groovy alarm clock - - a dog who sleeps with us and moves around a lot (mostly moving her posterior in my face or sticking her feet in my ribs). This morning, however, our alarm clock must have been exhausted because she never went off. No rib poking, no nothing. I don't know what made me do it, but I woke up with a start and looked at the clock. 7:05! Yikes! We had 20 minutes before we had to leave! We both needed to get in the shower. We needed to get Little Boy up and dressed, which is a major effort all in itself (the getting up part). Okay. Shower? check. Clothes on with the tags in the back? check. Shoes on? check. Teeth brushed? check. Bed made? maybe tomorrow. Breakfast? are you kidding? (Okay, don't judge - - Little Boy eats breakfast at school.)
We did it! We left the house at 7:25! I had to put my makeup on at work, but other than that, no casualties. If there was some TV game show or competition that involved getting an entire family out of bed, showered and dressed in the least amount of time, and walking out the door looking might fine, we would definitely be the victors! Maybe tomorrow we'll have to get up at 7:06 and try to cut down on our time! You never know when Bob Barker will be looking for a family for his new game show idea!
Ya baby! WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS!
