Everyone I dealt with today was grumpy about having to come back to work post-long holiday weekend. Get over it, people! I didn't want to be there either. *sigh*
Alex - glad you survived your weekend, but more importantly, your day. Your story about the bus, etc reminded me of a time that one of my best guy friends called me at the office in a panic. His wife was out of town for work, and he lined the neighbor up to take his 6 year old to school that morning. He had to leave for a day long business before she left for school and the neighbor was due there in 5 minutes, so he served her breakfast and told her to just wait for them as she would be right over. The neighbor FORGOT, so he called me freaking out to ask me to go pick her up and take her to school. Do you know what kind of 5th degree you get from the school when you are not "authorized" to drop off a kid? Spoiler alert: a lot.

We had a busy weekend at my house -family visiting and a birthday party for my middle daughter (she turns 10 on Monday). I am still exhausted. And today is the first day of school. My youngest started Kindergarten today. He was very very excited. He woke up at 445 am. I convinced him to go back to his room. He then came back to my room at 530 am to report that his stomach was growling at him. I had him lay down with us. At 6 Mr. A got up at his usual time, and the little guy jumped out of bed exclaiming: DADDY IS GOING TO MAKE ME SOME SCRAMBLED EGGS!!!!!
And getting my 8th grader off to school this morning involved more drama that usual. The school bus schedule changed by 25 minutes (she can actually get 25 more minutes of sleep!) but this info wasn't very widely known. A friend called last night at 8 see if we had the new schedule - we didn't. So she was up and ready in plenty of time today. Another friend didn't get the time change memo, so she decided to come over to our house at 6:35 am to see why the bus stop was empty. Once they finally went to the bus stop, we got a frantic call from oldest saying that she'd just lost a contact lens, could I please bring her a new left lens. Then she called to say that it was now 7:05, no school bus, and that a neighbor said the bus came 10 mintues ago. As I was leaving to pick her up and drive her there, she called yet again to say that another girl's dad would drive them to school. UGH. So much drama before 7:15 am. It turns out that the bus driver showed up at the usual - early - time, sat for 10 minutes and then started his route. That meant that he drove by every stop 10 mintues earlier that he was supposed to be there. Needless to say, the school had a huge traffic jam of irrate parents trying to get their kids to school when the bus was screwed up. I'm very glad that I don't work in that office today.
