Come Along With lightning36 For A Fun Morning!

7:45 a.m. -- Ready to leave home drop daughter off at school and then continue on to work. Friggin' Illinois roads are slick with snow again. Lemon!

8:05 a.m. -- Police officer is just outside my office. One of my administrative assistants is experiencing some heart issues. Ambulance was already called. After receiving services, assistant goes to hospital. I check her desk schedule: virtually no other coverage today. Scramble!

9:05 a.m. -- Late to 9am meeting. Meeting scheduled for an hour takes only about 40 minutes. Win!

10:00 a.m. -- Meeting to talk about submitting workshop proposal for national conference that was supposed to be held at an excellent breakfast restaurant was instead held in conference room at work. Lemon!

10:45 a.m. -- Meeting ends early. Shore up other things at work because I need to head downtown.

11:25 a.m. -- Get to clinic where oldest daughter is having oral surgery. Numb nuts driver in front of me appears to not know how to push button and take parking ticket. Decides to back up. I lay on my horn and he stops about 1 centimeter short of hitting my car.

11:30 a.m. -- Go into building. Surgery is so fast my wife is already wheeling daughter toward exit. Go back to car and stop to grab a Subway sub. Make small talk with woman, calling it a "Seinfeld moment." My monologue began: "You're getting a pizza sub at a sandwich shop? Why would anyone do that? Why not just go to a pizza place?" She was mildly amused.

12:00 noon -- Go to drug store to pick up prescription. Look at picture of new head pharmacist. Old head pharmacist was kind of cute, as is new one. Wonder if that is coincidence.


12:25 p.m. -- Get home. Give daughter pills. Check on sandwich, which somehow was left undisturbed by the four cats roaming the house. Win!

I hope your morning was a good one!
