What a morning!
Mr. Crum had the opportunity to leave early and spend some time with his friends for breakfast. I am so glad that he was able to do that and enjoy the time out. I was especially excited because it meant that I would not feel like I had to get up with him first thing and get things around for the day - a chance to sleep in!
Generally we wake up at 6:20 and leave home at 7:30. Monkey wakes up around 6:30, Crackers gets woken up at about 7:15. Not today. This morning Monkey was in my room asking for breakfast AT 6:00 - I know because that is when the alarm starts going off - he made it in seconds before it started buzzing. Crackers? Well, he was up long before 7 also. It's hot though and I was tired - I got Monkey to lay down with me for half an hour or so, until he decided to go upstairs to his room and shred some paper that he had found yesterday. The joys of being 3!
I got up and around - I'm on iron pills, that's not fun - I clogged the toilet while my children were crying at me about wanting "eat time". I got C changed and fed them both - ready to turn this morning into a great one.
Did I mention it's already 82 degrees in my living room at 7am? I've been having a lot of difficulty with the heat and humidity - it makes it hard to breathe. I served breakfast and started gagging on drainage from my sinuses.. then.. puke.. lovely!
I ate a popcicle and somehow felt much better. Hopped onto the computer to see if there are any exciting emails in my blog inbox (nothing new today). Happened to spot a friend online who lives in China. While talking with Carrie, I realized that mr. Monkey - the 3 year old - is VERY quiet. Why is that, I wonder... then I remember noting a bottle of bubbles at the top of the stairs - I'm pretty sure I know where he is.
Guess what - I was right.
And now, it's 8:43 - I'm playing "Something More" the newest CD from Heartland Church. I'm drinking a Diet Caffeine Free Dr. Pepper - and taking a deep breath - getting ready to start over.
Bring on the day!
