I have had a problem sleeping lately. I'll struggle to fall asleep only to wake up a few hours later thinking of ways I can convince my doctor that I need Ambien. Finally I fall asleep only to have my alarm go off 20 minutes later.
Last week I did not turn off my alarm so that I could snooze a little longer. I did not wake up 30 minutes before my boy's school started. Of course I woke them up slowly and gently. I did not wake them screaming like a monkey, "Wake up now! You can eat your pop tarts in the car! Get dressed right this minute or you will be grounded until your children are born!"
I did not shove my children in the car wearing jeans, my pajama top, fleece jacket, and tennis shoes with no socks. Of course I did not have uncombed hair, unbrushed teeth, and wearing my glasses. I did not look like death climbing out of bed on a Monday morning.
I so DID get rear ended by an SUV in front of my children's school! I didn't notice that the woman climbing out of the car was extremely gorgeous and immaculate in grooming and dress. Of course I did not feel like road kill as we exchanged insurance information. And I would never feel glee that my car was fine but her car's bumper had a big hole in it. I did not have these feelings of glee because she hit my car, but because she was prettier than I!
