Thank you Teacher

Hello everyone! How's your tuesday shaping up? Let me give you a run down on my morning so far. Just for giggles.

1. Our power went out for a bit at some point in the night, so my alarm didn't go off. Great.
2. I jerked awake to discover that we were all behind by almost a half hour (thanks a lot internal clock).
3. The blind cat threw up on my bedroom floor so I stepped in it as soon as I leapt out of bed. Gross.
4. After hopping down the hall to the bathroom, cleaning my foot and then taking a shower, I began making lunches only to discover that we were out of whole wheat bread. Crud.
5. My husband discovered that the load of laundry he did the night before was soaking wet because he forgot to turn the dryer on. The kids had no clean uniform shirts for school. Seriously?
6. While making our morning smoothie I forgot to add in the frozen banana. I did not notice this until my 5 year old said the spinach/kale smoothie was sour tasting. Oopsie!
7. We managed to get the kids on the bus and get to work ourselves, only to realize that we had left the dog outside in our insanely hectic race to get out of the house! (The hubster went home and let him in)
8. I have a ton of work to do here at work, and instead I'm blogging. *grin*


This card is for Lisa's Poppy Seed Challenge No.2. Buttons (apple), polka dots (BG), and light moss (Spring Moss card base).

Thanks for stopping by today, hope your Tuesday is better than mine!
