(it’s going to be quiet in here for a few days as I’ve committed to writing up a couple of diaries on DailyKos over the next week which sort of has me freaking out but which will certainly drain any writing time – will post links here though when they are done)
This morning the teenager was blessed with his Most Favorite of School Days – Late Start Day. Typically it’s one Monday a month when school does not start until 9:30 (they do this in lieu of having teacher in-service days). Today though, it was for 8th graders only because the 7th graders were taking a writing exam so he didn’t have to be there until 10:00am!! Wowza! So rather than him being up and eating breakfast with me as I get ready for work, he got to sleep in and I didn’t see him this morning. I did holler out a “goodbye!” to provide him with his first alarm of the morning, but I figured he has his own clock set at 8:30 or 9:00am.
Still, around 9:40 there was a nagging voice in my head telling me to call him.
So I did.
And I woke up him up.
