I live for these moments!!

Sometimes it just does not pay to even bother opening your eyes in the morning…..

At 7:30 Rachael wakes me up.  WAKES ME UP.  We have to be out the door at 7:45 to get the girls to school on time.

Apparently my alarm clock bothers her so she comes in and turns it off.

Alarm clock technique FAIL.

I then spend a good five minutes searching for my keys.

Did I ever explain WHY we only have one key to our van?


Well it’s a really freaking boring story, so just accept that I lost the ONE key we have to our van.

I had to take the kids to school in Peter’s car (which, Hon? Smells like the Red Hot Chili Peppers died in your car, might want to do something about that) but thankfully was NOT the last car in line.

I came home pretty grumble-y.

Stupid mornings.

Dumb carline.

Gonna go eat dirt and die.

Yeah. Great way to start the day.

Peter’s been having a rough time at work, up all hours of the day and night, he’s sleeping like we have a newborn and this morning he looked like someone came in the night and kicked him in the chin.  Poor guy.

So, I – being the amazing wife I am – offered to drive out to get him a breakfast burrito.

I know. You can hold your applause until the end of the post.

There I am…sitting in the drive thru trying to decide if it’s even worth it to still be awake, of if I should just admit defeat and go back to bed.


The most awesome thing E.V.E.R. happened right in front of me.

It was one of those events that you have to believe in fate and destiny…if we’d been to school on time I would have totally missed this PERFECT MOMENT. I truly believe that God wanted me to see this because there is just no other explanation.

The car in front of me explodes in a frenzy of yelling and fist shaking.  The driver leans out her window to scream about “your customer service SUCKS!”. She sure let them have it.  I was totally impressed!

Especially because she hadn’t pulled up to the speaker yet.

She’d totally lost her mind to THE TRASH CAN!

….and some days? Life smiles down on you and delivers so sweet a gift that you can’t help but smile the rest of the day.

    As I was reading this, I decided that my morning mantra, Mornings Suck, should be my comment. Imagine my surprise when I saw you had tagged it that way!

    And the trash can experience – you just can't make that crap up! Priceless!

    OK… I totally sat in front of the garbage can at Baskin Robbins this weekend waiting for them to take my order… I didn't yell at it though. That would be insane!!
