I find myself up an hour earlier than intended thanks to:
a) my contractor photographer texting me at 5:24 AM letting me know he received the itinerary for today (when I asked him to confirm this last evening) - yes, even low volume sounds wake me up. Even through earplugs.
b) my dd (damned dog, darling dog, darned dog - take your pick) ralphing in his kennel at 5:55 AM.
nice.... real nice....
And shame on me for going to bed so late.
so sue me....
I am owly in the morning.
even when I get up after my requisite seven hours of sleep.
I hate people who can do with four or five or six hours.
I am not one of them.
Last week was crazy. My dh (husband with 'd' starting adjectives in front) left Tuesday AM for a month long family related trip. On Wednesday morning one of my employees calls me and asks if it was OK for her to take her husband (too sick to drive and no car besides) to the doc as he was doing poorly. OK. Not a problem. I'll cover for her for a few hours. Well, a few hours later she calls and tells us they are at the ER! The doctor thought he was having a heart attack and sent him straight there. Except it isn't a heart attack but an ever increasing range of serious symptoms and no diagnosis even as of Sunday night. A specialist is in finding zebras is coming to look at him today, so hopefully he can help. Dr. House to room 4425 please.
Obviously I didn't get to teach the kids this week, between Monday packing, Tuesday the kids Dad leaving and Wednesday through Friday covering for my employee at the office. My employee plans to come in late and leave early and work a half day for the forseeable future so she can both be with her husband and not burn through all of her vacation time. This should allow me to get my children's education back on track.
