This Just In: I Am Tired

You know what?  I just tried to write out all the mad craziness that happened between 4:15 a.m and 8:30 a.m. at my house.

But I can't.  You don't have that kind of time.  Neither do I.

Just know that it involved (and not in this particular order):

- puppy jumping on beds

- kitten playing

- puppy dragging cardboard into kid's room at 4:30

- me sleeping on couch after kitten and puppy circus in the boys room

- a husband with a twisted knee

- showers ten minutes late for husband and J15 (see above knee issue)

- chihuahua having two seizures during crucial lunch packing/getting dressed time-- or one very long one (in which everything stops and we hold him)

- getting stuck behind a bus when we are already 15 minutes late

- chapel tie lost (well, in back of car as usual, so not really lost)

- latin book left in the house, but remembered before we left the driveway

- normal antics of getting 11 year old up and dressed (not a morning person) while all of above is happening

- rewarming already buttered, cinnamon & sugared toast in the toaster, because of late showers (see above)

- puppy in table eating toast while chihuahua has seizure

- puppy on my desk eating cat food because someone (probably me) left the office door open

- breaker popped because i ran the iron and little office heater while ironing chapel shirt

 - flashlight not found fast enough so i can go outside and reset breaker

- desperate trip through Starbucks drive-thru for peppermint latte

So that was our morning.  Only one more school morning to get through before a glorious, blessed, wonderful week off.

Can not wait.

Pets are more work than kids, aren't they?

That sounds like a nightmare. 4:15 a.m. and I are not only not friends, but mortal enemies!
