(Don't) touch me in the morning.....

I got a call from work at 7:30 am.  I was sleeping so good then, too.  Mom yells upstairs for me to get the phone and I do. 

Mrs. Receptionist/Scheduler/Personnel/Office Manager asks me if I can come in for a few hours to help them out.   

My brain was still asleep, so my mouth did the thinking for it.  "Sure", I told her, "but I have to go at noon to take the girl to school at 12:30."  I hung up the phone and my brain suddenly wakes up and says WTF?    But I went in. 

She only needed me from 9-12, and in the 2-yr-olds room, so it wasn't a big deal.  But you know how you get your mind set for doing other things and then something comes along and blows your plans out of the water?  I do.   

Because I wasn't home, Grace didn't take a nap before school.  Believe me, she needs one, too.  Poor Mrs. Preschool Teacher.....  Since we have the mom/kiddo thing tonight~she'll have to take one when she gets home and eats, or I'll have a grumpy Gracie on my hands.   

I also wanted to give her a bath pre-party because it'll be pretty late for her when we get home tonight to do it.  Now that's not going to happen either.  Baths make her so sleepy, she'll be a bear if I take her out of the house afterwards.  Crap!  

Note to folks here:  If you ever need me to do something for you-do not ask me in the morning...... unless, of course, it's something you know I'll say 'no' to, then definitely ask me then  :)  

I suck in the mornings......

I know what you mean about one change in your schedule knocking everything else way off course!!  You'll have to leave yourself a note by the phone for future 7.30am phone calls - Say NO Cat, nooooooo!!
Hope you and Grace have a great time at the party :o)

My brain is up before my body, they are on opposite schedules.

I suck in the morning too *winks* ;)~~~

I sure wish baths made Pey tired...the girl could spend all day in the bath-tub ;)
I'm the same way in the mornings, I get all confused, Chris swears he told me something and I can't remember to save my life.
I hope you had a great time at the party :)  reading on!
