so not a morning person

I tried listing books last night, but it was too dark to trust my descriptions. I decided to play a little Civilization instead. Such a bad idea! Even a little Civilization lasts a long time. By the time my humiliating defeat was imminent, it was pretty late. I thought that I would read a quick book, but in the spot where I thought I had set The Great Piratical Rumbustification and The Librarian and The Robbers I found Slavomir Rawicz's The Long Walk instead. That didn't help me get to sleep any faster. But sleep came, finally, and Victoria soon followed. I don't know what her problem was, she was complaining and half-asleep. That was about 4am. The next thing I hear is some commotion in the driveway. I looked out and saw a truck. It was a little before 7, so I figured Chris had a friend coming to pick him up for school. I got up and found some shorts. The doorbell rang. I figured Christopher had forgotten his keys, so I turned the doorknob and stepped back to the sink (forgot to do the flylady thing last night). It wasn't Chris. It was my brother-in-law, he needed to use the bathroom. By the time he finishes, Victoria is up. B-i-L makes a comment about our hair being messy, thanks. Goodbye. We go upstairs to get clean clothes and Chris's alarm clock is blaring. I go in his room to turn it off and I find Chris fast asleep. Fabulous. The second day of school. So I yell him out of bed and get Victoria and myself ready. We also make some spinach dip, clean up the kitchen, and put a load of laundry in. Stop by the babysitter's, chat (there is no no-chat option), only 20 minutes late to work. Blame that on the recently-returned students. Make coffee. Much better.
