Argh!

I wish school busses had vehicle tracking systems in them so the parents could know exactly where they are. What a frustrating way to start the morning: I took Jake out to wait for his bus at close to his usual time (possibly one or two minutes later than usual, but we end up waiting for five to ten minutes, so that should be negligable). We waited. And waited. And I started getting stressed out. And then one of our neighbors from up the street drove by and let me know that the bus had already passed and her kids missed it too. We made it seven months without missing the bus! I’m convinced it was early this morning. So I had to run inside, get Noah’s coat on and drive to school. Of course, having never done the whole drop-off routine, I was stressed about that. Luckily it was pretty easy and parents were letting cars turning left into the parking lot (like me!) in and not cutting off everyone. So then I felt like a fool for getting worked up about it in the first place. Blah.

Oh well. He’s there, and on time and that’s the important thing, right? I am skipping my full-on kitchen spring cleaning today because I am feeling a bit under the weather. My plan is to just do a basic clean-up of the house, crank out a few blog posts, get stuff ready for dinner early (so I won’t have to think about it later), and hopefully spend the afternoon knitting or reading. I hope your day started better than mine, LOL!

    My morning started off much better than yours but I know there’s no way I’ll be reading this afternoon, so I think in the end you’ll get the better end of the deal. :)

    I hope that you feel better very soon. Sorry you had a stressful morning. :( I hope that your day goes well from here on out! Yesterday I took Meredith with me to Luke’s preschool orientation and felt like a fool because I found out that siblings aren’t allowed. What am I supposed to do with her for just an hour every Thursday? *sigh* It worked out OK, though. Right now, Lucas is using Windex and paper towels to clean the windows in our bonus room. SCORE! LOL! :)

    Isn’t it always like that though? I remember the first time I dropped off Jasmine at school I was so worked up over nothing LOL

    Hope you have a better day.
