January 22, 2010~ Let's try this day again!

OK~  Here's my day- Can I declare a "DO-OVER?"Roll out of bed, and I mean, literally rolled out of bed today.  Make sure Garrett is up~God forbid that "Clocky" should do his job!  7:00 a.m. Garrett walks down the stairs and states, "I have homework to do in the shop!"  I'm thinking, "What?  The bus comes at 7:10 a.m."  OK, Garrett heads out to work on whatever- something he never produced!  He comes in, heads upstairs to throw on some different clothes.  I am now running late, as I have an MRI scheduled at 8:30 a.m.  On the way out the door, Wally wants in.  Of course, I let him in! (MISTAKE)

I drop Garrett off at school, head over for my MRI.  I am told (AGAIN) that I am the perfect MRI patient.  I guess most people move around a lot.  I lay still- figuring that this is the quickest way to get out of here! I go home- walk in the house.  There are dark spots all over the carpet in several areas.  Wally stinks like oil, as well as our carpet.  I send him outside and ponder what the look on Todd's face will be when he arises for the day.

Todd arises and has to scrub two rooms of carpet with the handy dandy carpet scrubber!  My phone rings and I am told I have scar tissue and my Dr. will gladly refer me to a neurosurgeon- UGGHHH...
Todd and I head uptown to get some lunch, get groceries and by this time I am BEAT!  We arrive home to a phone call from Garrett, "Mom, can you pick me up?"  I'm thinking, the bus leaves in 2 minutes, he has now missed it.  He informs me that the Math teacher is having him stay after school to scrape the omelet out of his Math book! What, an omelet, go figure!  I don't even think I wanna know the story on this one!  I'm now thinking, can I please wake up on the other side of the bed and start over!  After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?
