I'm in a bad mood

A Very Bad Mood, in fact.

I start work at 6.30am. I am so not a morning person. Getting up at 5.30am is a struggle for me. I do this so I can ensure I'm there to pick Chickie up from school in the afternoons (J takes him to school in the mornings). I will be putting in for after school care - when it becomes available because I'm finding it hard to get up this early (not to mention work is letting me start at 6.30 as a favour - it costs them, since I get paid at a higher rate if I start early).

So, why can't Chickie cooperate and not wake me up 15 minutes before my alarm is supposed to go off? I cannot stand being woken just before my alarm goes off. He wouldn't go back to sleep either, so I'm grumpy from being woken early and he's whiny because he's up too early. Heaven only knows what he'll be like after a full day of school. He's so tired afterwards, even when he has had enough sleep!

Of course, then I come into work (after cursing all the idiot drivers in front of me, on the way in) and the first calls I have are people whining or looking for an easy way out of the call they're on. I hope neither was psychic, since all I was thinking was 'Stop whining, because I don't care, just go do your job properly!'

It's going to be a long day...

Ugh. Sounds like one of those horrible, no good, very bad days! I will be grumpy with you. Abby just mixed play-doh and water... makes an interesting paste.... especially when spread over the table. And she won't keep her panties on today... so we have intermittent flashes of bare bottom as she flashes by.

Corny kid joke to make you chuckle or groan: Why DIDN'T the skeleton cross the road? Because he didn't have the guts! (J.T.'s current favorite.... makes him belly laugh everytime he tells it).

Speaking as one Not-A-Morning-Person to another, I hope your day gets better

Oh and Melinda. I went to sleep with gum in my mouth and now there's gum in my hair.

That is one of my favourite kids' books.

I hope your day improves. I don't even know what 5:30 looks like and I have no need to find out. I feel your pain.

Love that book Stomper. I like it MORE than my kids do! Hope your day gets better Caramaena!

Oh wow, you sound like me in the morning. Smart people don't even try to talk to me for at least a couple hours.

The older I get, the morninger I get!

Oh great One said...

I hear ya. I hate it when I wake up before the alarm goes off. Why?! WHY?!

Well, it was a long day. Got better towards the end, but today is much better.

Plus I've organised a longer weekend next week (a four day weekend - yay!). I feel like I need some time to myself.

Love the joke melinda - must tell Chickie that one. He'll love it too :)

i am so not a morning person either. but i do not envy you having to go to work so early.
i get to sleep in til my boy wakes me around sixthirty. at least he does it so sweetly that i generally manage to drag myself out and stomp off and get breakfast ready...i am ashamed to admit i am generally grumpy until i've had my first coffee....
