Ways to Make a Glamorous Redneck Have a Bad Day

OK so really there's only one way to make me have a bad day. And that's to call me before I have a chance to form coherent thought. FYI, coherent thought does not enter my brain until the alarm clock has gone off. And even then, it's fleeting. You're better off to speak to me after about 9:00 in the morning. That allows everything to fully reboot, so to speak.

So, when the phone rings at 6:45 in the morning, I can pretty much guarantee that it's going to be a bad day.

It turned out that my daycare mom's son has strep throat. Which is FAN-freaking-TASTIC because that means he was probably contagious on Monday and I can think of about 8 squilion better ways to begin the school year. So I'm hoping that we don't get it.

But that meant no daycare today. And that I had to find somewhere else to go with the kids because I HAVE to be here today. After four calls and perhaps a minor freakout (because how the hell do these people expect me to SPEAK, let alone form complete sentences) when I have my routine all screwed up?

Needless to say, I found somewhere for them to go, but as I've said before, my routine is screwed, so I feel "off" today. And I should be working, but the work hurts my brain, so I'm taking a minute to whine to five people on the internet. Feel my pain, oh interweb friends.

I'm off to go finish what I'm doing. And I'm so not getting out of bed tomorrow.

ugh. I hate getting phone calls while i'm sleeping. an icky exboyfriend of mine called at 1:30 in the morning sometime last week to ask if i'd burn cds for him! burn cds?! what? that couldn't wait until, oh, I don't know, 3:00 the next afternoon? cuz that woulda been appreciated, buddy. not only that, but he decided that was a fantastic time to play the "guess who this is!!!" game. and since for some reason my cell phone was listing him as a "restricted" call, i actually had to guess. oh, the humanity.

I hate early morning phone calls. There should be a special ring tone for any call that comes in between 10:00pm and 7:00am -- 'ha ha' followed by 'you're screwed' then it could just repeat. My sympathies.

I'm crossing my fingers that the nasty strep throat germs didn't invade your house!

Early morning and late night phone calls are never good.

Getting out of bed can be a bad, sad thing... unless it is the weekend ;)
