I was so close to calling work and cancelling today! However, it was timebook day for me and I really need that next paycheck. Let's see if I can remember everything: 1. easy child had called to have me drop off a car seat. That means a different route to school with an early leave home time. husband said he could help with that! Yeah! Noooooo problem here anymore. 2. Leave home at 8:00 - have to be at work at 8:30 - here goes my 1/2 hour ride (with some overtime necessary): 3. Within a few minutes of leaving home, realize that I need to fill up with gas. Forgot that I was going to leave early this morning to do so (and get breakfast pizza at the gas station - Yummmy). O.k., no problem, can still stop and not be late for work. 4. On way to gas station remember that I left cell phone at home. Do not have time to go home for it. Maybe husband can bring it to me? I'll call him when I get to school or work. 5. Before getting to gas station, difficult child states he left his glasses at home and his eyes were starting to bug him. O.K. maybe husband can bring his glasses and the cell phone to school. I gave difficult child two quarters at the gas station to call dad on the pay phone. husband saves the day again! 6. As I am filling up with gas, I realize I have no cash! Don't really want to leave town with no cash. So, make the plan to drop difficult child off at school (I always go in but not this morning) and run to bank before work (don't have time any other time). 7. Get to school and decided to help difficult child carry his backpack, lunch bag, trumpet (won't fit in case because mouth piece is stuck), and trumpet case into school. difficult child says he can manage it all and didn't need my help. So somehow, he gets everything out of the van and heads into school without my help. 8. I get to the bank and make my withdrawal. The receipt says I have less money than I should. Today is electronic pay day and I am sure I have done bank runs that early on payday with the deposit showing. 9. Get to work at 8:35 (amazing what you can do in 30 minutes). call the bank. Here is where my day turns around for the good. My paycheck did get deposited, just not on the ATM yet!. Whew! (I have been known to not get a timebook in or only a partial timebook in) The rest of the morning was good - I am glad I did go into work.
