Can I have a do-over?

Let me start off by saying I seriously need some routine and organization in my life. Now that school has started back, I am feeling the pinch. Not to mention I'm dealing with severe sleep deprivation and this is only day 2 of school. My late nights have caused me to hit a wall this morning.


So today started off with two sleep-deprived boys and a grumpy mom. That made for a very pleasant morning, I can tell ya. I finally got the boys out the door and as we were getting in the van, the school bus passed by. I was thinking how nice that would be if it didn't make me feel so dang guilty-and I'm not sure why it makes me feel that way...school kids ride buses...

At that moment the thought of pushing them out the door and climbing back in bed was making me a little drowsy. And then... Click. Click. Clickclickclickclick. That's the sound that came from underneath the hood. No vrroooom. Just click. Clickclickclick.

I headed back in the house and summoned my husband who immediately came to my rescue. (Suuupperrr Dad!!) Click. Click. Click. Clickclickclickclickclick. He thinks it may be the battery that has been coughing and wheezing for several weeks now.

Ahhh, the joys of being a one car family.

I let my eyes move over the deserted neighborhood as the sounds of his repeated clicking echoed through the emptiness. Along with the mooing. Insanely loud mooing. The farmer across the field pulled up into the barnyard and his cows were making a bee-line for the gate, some were even running! Mooing. like. crazy. It made me think of the California happy cows commercials.... "Marco........Polo.........Awwwww."

Two boys are now happily playing Paper Mario on the Wii (no school today!) and I'm thinking about a nap. Looks like I'm getting my do-over after all!
