This is how it all starts...first you start staying up late, or getting up during the night to get a drink of water to quell a coughing fit, or both. Add to that a sick husband who has his alarm turned off (so HE can sleep)...and the next you know it's 5:48am and you're supposed to be at church ready to teach in 12 minutes.

Thankfully this all happened on a Friday day. I had my game all prepared...(think speed dating meets scripture mastery...) thank goodness. As soon as I saw the time, I lept from bed and told Steve to call the church (good morning honey) as he was dialing, I was dressing - thankfully it's not too cold to wear sandals with a longish skirt. I asked Deann (on the phone) to have our substitute principal go to my classroom and have the kids take down the tables and stack them.

I made it to church just 2 minutes late. Pretty awesome. Not only did I make it, but so did Danny. I had a couple of my students put up the scripture "dates" on the wall while we were singing our opening song...and we were pretty much ready to go about as soon as we would have if I hadn't been late.

The bright lining to this? I got an extra hour and 18 minutes of sleep this morning. Wahoo.

That's good and bad. Now you know you can sleep in and get to class "almost" on time. You must have set some land speed record getting to church.

I did take some corners pretty fast...and I hit the two lights just right.
