It can only get better .....I hope. The bridal party left at 3:30 this morning. My daughter slept in Gavin's bed and he slept with me. I thought I was at home minus the dogs. The child snores. He looks like Papa and he snores like Papa.
I woke in plenty of time to get the child ready for school and take the new arrival out for a potty break. Laila, the boxer arrived when the bridal party left. She is a good dog and she was able to get Gavin up and moving this morning. I have a packet of instructions and I was told that Gavin was hard to get going. I managed to get him dressed and his teeth brushed and his toaster strudel ready to eat in the car.
I gulped my coffee,grabbed the map and we were off ............ Gramma, you forgot my breakfast. Oh crap, you are right, I did (are you really hungry?) I turn around and go back in, thinking to grab it and be on our way. The dog ate the child's breakfast. I have short dogs and what I put on the counter stays on the counter. I put another strudel in the toaster and put some food in the dog's dish.
I am back on the road and following the map quest directions. Take a slight right on Radio Drive. Slight? What is slight. You either turn or you don't. It is an intersection with no confusing little side roads. I turn and am going along looking for the next road on the directions when Gavin tells me to turn "here". It is not the road on the directions and I have to turn because I am in the turn lane. I call my son and tell him I am lost ...... all the while Gavin is telling me to "go straight, Gramma, don't listen to him, just go,I know where my school is". I creep along and find the road and then finally get him to school 15 minutes late. All the while Gavin is telling me, "I told you I knew where it was.
As he got out of the car he asked me if I could get back home okay. "Just go backwards from the way we came." I am going to take a shower and have another cup of coffee now.
