Shhhh....I'm tring to catch a quick nap

Let me begin this quick story by explaining last week's mornings to you.
I always get up at 6:40 on Monday and the rest of the week I get up at 6:55. Last week 3 out of the 5 days I got up and Nick was still sleeping. That gave him 10 minutes to get out to the bus. One time he set his alarm wrong, one morning he hit snooze and kept sleeping and we're not sure what happened the last morning.
Well today my alarm went off and I got up and once again no Nick! So I holler downstairs a time or twenty and finally I hear him come up the stairs. Now I hop into the shower, get done, and I'm starting on my hair and he comes into the bathroom with a smirk on his face and tells me "Mom it's 5:50!"
It is not I told him- yes it is he says again. I pick up my watch and yes it's not even 6:00 yet!!!
Now he's laughing at me because when he got upstairs this morning I told him a little emphatically that he's got to figure out what's going on with his alarm because this was getting a little crazy with not waking up on time.
Arianna had gotten up and gone into my room- thank goodness she fell back asleep and Halle's still sleeping so at least they will get their normal sleep.
I think today the couch is going to be calling me for a nap but I'll try to stay strong! Good thing I have a lot I need to get done today.
Actually I better go right now and fix MY alarm clock!

That is too funny! Remember went I was almost to work and wondering why all the lights were still on their blink setting? Or when I was on my way to the shower and Aaron sat up in bed and said "what are you doing" "getting up for work" I said. "It's 2:45 in the morning!" he said. So don't worry - it happens to us all - and you do deserve a little nap for that one! :)

My day could have gone that way too! I had to go in early today, so I set my alarm for 4:45. The problem was it was set for pm. It's a good thing my internal clock woke me up at 4:50. I still made it to work by 5:30 - Mari
