Excuses excuses!

ALL four kids got up late - hubby left for work later than usual - kids all had messy hair *gasp*- kids bickered, only one cried, but eventually they all got dressed - pulled my hair into a ponytail and picked off yesterday's mascara - slapped on some eyeliner and some more mascara so I didn't look so dead - brushed teeth - pulled on dirty jeans and a new top that Alyssa picked out - remembered that Brenden didn't take his medicine - looked everywhere for medicine - called my hubby to ask where he put the new prescription that he picked up yesterday - listened as he described that it was still sitting right next to him in the car - hung up after saying nice things, I'm sure - hollered the 3 minute warning - saw only two kids at the bus stop - shoved Brenden out the door as I was brushing his hair - watched Brenden run across the yard with one shoe on, and one shoe half off as the bus was pulling up -  bus stopped, but only three kids got on - waved at bus driver - found remaining kid in the bathroom fixing her messy hair (LOL) - drove that girl to the Middle School - went through the driveup window at my favorite coffee place to get a $1.00 latte (felt like I needed it by now!) - threw a quarter plus a penny in the tip jar just so it would make more noise when it hit than one quarter by itself - drove to the Elementary School - signed out my son's meds - went to his class and made him take his meds - walked to the gym to help another Mom set up the end of the year slideshow - sat down on a hard bleacher - slide show didn't work once all the kids showed up and the lights were off - sent the entire student body outside on a pretend fire drill - some other Mom of a 7th grader asked me if I was going to the Middle School awards - looked completely ignorant because I'd not heard about it - got slide show working - watched half the slideshow - left the slideshow early to make it to the Middle School 7th grade awards on time - sat on another hard bleacher - laughed a lot and enjoyed being proud of a lot of kids I spent 2 years helping teach music to - ran out the door - came home. And that, my friends, is why I wasn't here to chat online this morning :)

Now pardon me, because I only have one more hour of freedom before September. See ya around!
