My NOT fun morning, by the numbers

11.27.2012

The number of minutes I woke up before the kids were supposed to be at school today: 5

The number of days my hair had gone unwashed, causing me to throw on a hat before running out of the house in a mad rush, wearing my pjs & slippers: 3

The number of miles I came short of reaching home again before running out of gas: .25 - so close!

The number of times I smacked my head on my steering wheel, asking God, "Why me?": Only once I'm proud to say.

The number I then called to state my emergency: my sister's
{God bless her perky little self for leaving work to come to my immediate rescue}
The number of trips we took back to my house for gas cans: 2 (the first one had a little gas in it but as it turns out, no nozzle under the lid to pour it in. Of course not.)

The number of school buses filled with laughing children who passed me in my animal print pants: 2 (which we all know is two too many.)

The number of people who thought it was all a fun adventure: 1 small boy (and his dog)

The number of times I've ran out of gas in my life: 6? 7? I think there could be a life lesson there!

The number of chocolate chips I've eaten since finally making it back home: ... ummm... I don't know what you're talking about!

  4. You are funny. Great look on your face while filling your gas tank. Next time blame it on Russell. You could say that he took the car out the night before and was suppose to fill it up??? just an idea. I've actually ran out of gas a couple of times in my life and the last time was only about a year ago, but I have a good excuse:)

    1. Hey, I have a good excuse too... there were "extenuating circumstances"! (Namely, I was helping my Nanna pack for Uganda the night before and didn't leave her house till after 1 am - when the gas station was already closed. And then, because I was so tired and overslept the next morning, I rushed out in a panic to get the kids to school and forgot my purse!)

      Circumstances aside, I like the blame Russell idea. He's a good fall back ;)
