With missed alarms, sluggish days, and many delays.
My Monday started out with me completely missing the alarm. Austin has to be at the weight room by 5 a.m. The alarm goes off at 4:30 so we have plenty of time to get him up and going. He has Osgood-Schlatter Disease and it takes him a lot longer to get moving than the other kiddos. Well, I woke up this morning around 5:10 a.m. to Matty yelling, “Mom, Mom.” I had turned off the alarm in my sleep and just kept on sleeping. Argh! Matty was yelling, “Mom,” to wake me up. So Austin missed weight room this morning.
Even with that adrenaline rush I was still very sluggish this morning. Part of it was because I was bummed that my work out plan just isn’t going to work. I want to do a walk/run in the mornings but no one can/wants to go with me. My dogs aren’t as fierce as they should be and I’m scared to go by myself. I’m only a wee thing. It’s not hard to pick me up off the street and run with me. So I’m trying to figure out a different kind of plan which will probably involve the treadmill (blah!).
I did finally get up and get moving. Today I have to turn in library books and send back movies. So I was running around gathering all that stuff after I got ready for work. Then, I couldn’t find my van keys. Lauren had left them in the back of the van when she was trying to figure out how to turn the seat backwards on the 4th of July. Thankfully, the commute to work was uneventful!
Once I got to work the drama began again. I had to reschedule the kids’ doc appts for tomorrow because I can’t afford it this week. Well, it is now August 25!! Matty is due for a shot before school so I don’t know how that is going to work, and at the moment I don’t really care. School starts here around August 17 so it will be after that day. When I register him I’ll see about a grace period.
Then our doctor called with information on Lauren and Austin. Austin’s stress test came back fine but they are still waiting on the EKG. Lauren, on the other hand, got her anxiety meds doubled and they want to run another ultrasound on the cyst.
And I won’t get into the work drama. But I can say that I’m ready for lunch!!
