Thursday nights are always great for me…this means it’s FRIDAY when I wake up!! This is how a typical Friday goes for Bailey and I. We wake around 7am, have breakfast, well Bailey does anyway, then up to the bathroom to brush teeth and to put on the “Hot New York Nights” cologne. Having quite interesting conversations in the middle of all this. Continue getting ready for school and he’s out the door catching the bus by 8. I grab my coffee, wait at the window for the bus to come back by after about 2 minutes going around the block and we have our last wave to each other. I open my laptop and start my day…coffee, computer and a quite house.
Now lets talk about last Friday. This is how it started…you see we had a major snow storm Thursday and funny how this works but everything was shoveled except Baileys path to the bus. If the bus picked him up in front of our house, no big deal he could use the driveway, but the bus picks him up on the side of the house. We live on a corner lot. So as I’m getting Bailey ready I let Sari, our black Lab out. Here she is having the time of her life!! She sticks her nose in the snow then she shakes her entire head, it’s so funny!
Okay back to the point of this post. I notice that Baileys path had not been shoveled. My morning went from great to “you have got to be kidding me!” I now have 20 minutes to get my warm clothes on, shovel a butt load of snow and still make sure Bailey is 100% ready to get out that door at 8am. As I’m trying to find all my winter stuff I’m thinking to myself…my brother is laid off, he has nothing to do, he shoveled the driveway and the patio in the back yard but didn’t touch Bailey’s path! I can’t find my gloves OR my sunglasses (and yes those were a must) it was blinding out!! SO I give up on the glasses, even though I have 4 pair, can’t find my gloves so I resort to my 8 year old sons gloves. Sad but they actually fit quite nicely. 🙂
But guess what??? As I’m shoveling I hit something hard, sounds like metal. I reach down to see what this could be and low and behold it’s a BIKE!! I found Baileys bike. Now I’m not quite sure if it was lost but whatever, I found it! Yea, I felt pretty proud of myself, then the sight of the snow blinded me back into reality. I have only gotten 20 feet done and have 60 more to go!! I’m cold, I haven’t even had my coffee yet and I’m literally being blinded! But I got it done and boy do I feel accomplished. I am officially (sorry momma J) “MOTHER OF THE YEAR.” I just don’t have the little trophy! Here’s a picture of the path I had to shovel and better yet the bike I found!!! I kinda feel like I discovered some cool artifact or something.
I got Bailey onto the bus, waited for it to come back by to wave one last time, and guess what I did??? I went back to bed!! I couldn’t help it, my electric blanket was screaming at me to get back in I swear! It felt so good. I never do that and thought, hey it’s Friday and I don’t have daycare kids until 12! I got up at 10 had my coffee, shower and waited for my 6 month old to come. From the sounds of her screams I think she was having a crappy day too!!Another day down a million more to go. Bailey had an awesome day at school, we have the weekend together…doesn’t get much better than that!
I think this picture pretty much sums up how we felt about Friday morning!! Have a wonderful week!!!
