Go Back To Bed If You Can!!!

Let me first start by saying that I am a morning person. Most peopleI've encountered will agree, I'm almost annoyingly happy in the morning, right Kristy? My biggest thrill of the day is unloading the dishwasher, opening the blinds, making the beds and starting laundry. Like I've admitted before, I'm a dork.

Anyway, I've had a rough morning. It started last night when a child, whose name I will not reveal, overflowed the toilet. I didn't notice until I heard dripping from the downstairs bathroom ceiling.

This morning I get up and the air purifier is still running near the damp spots and it still stinks (by the way if you have a solution to get rid of the smell let me know). I stumble down to start working and I listen to the news. All I hear about are the climbing gas prices, the stats regarding retirement when my generation reaches that age and a governor that was involved in a prostitution ring. As if I'm not irritated enough, both kids are up by 6am which is not normal. They are normally struggling to get up at 7:30am. A child points out a nice big stain on the ceiling in the downstairs bathroom from last night. Robyn decides she is feeling sick (she says this everyday because she hates school) so I tell her to eat something and that will make her feel better. She still feels sick and has a fever so she will be staying home.

Its now only 8:30am and I'm scared to continue my day. Can I just go back to sleep and start over?? I wish I could but now I have to start my 7 hour work day so I can be ready to take the kids to return our library books that are due today while Doug sneakily buys Garrett's birthday gift.

UGH.. I'll admit I'm so not a morning person.. but days like that would make me want to just climb back into bed, even more then I normally want to in the morning.. Hope your day got better and that Robyn is feeling better soon.
