A typical morning with the Lees...
5:40 - Alarm rings for 6:00 walk. Hit snooze.
5:50 - Alarm rings for 6:00 walk. Hit snooze.
6:00 - Alarm rings for 6:00 walk.
Me: "Is it raining?"
6:15 - Leave for 6:00 walk. (note to self: rename "6:00 walk" to "6:15 walk")
7:15 - Return from walk. Daughter (9) is waiting in the kitchen fully dressed with a smile on her face. Son (15) is still in the shower after unknown number of minutes. Son (13) is still in bed - even though his alarm went off at 6:45. Damn that glass house thing!
Me to 15: "Finish up!"
Me to 13: "Get up!"
7:20 - 15 sulks into the kitchen with a scowl on his face. This from a child who only 9 hours earlier went to bed with a chipper "good night mom and dad!" while whistling his way up the stairs. Apparently a full night's sleep has some kind of poisonous affect on 15 year-old children.
7:30 - 13 is still in shower and if allowed, would stay in there until tomorrow.
Me to 13: "Finish up! You have to leave for school in 15 minutes!"
7:30 - My turn to take a shower.
Me to myself after turning on the shower only to discover it's just slightly warmer than polar ice: "Sonofa - Crap!"
7:50 - 13 leaves for his school (which is one block away) 5 minutes late. Expect a phone call from teacher that he will be staying late for detention because of tardiness - again.
8:00 - Leave with 15 and 9 to drop them off at their schools on the way to work.
8:01 - Wife opens up box of bon-bons, ignores dirty breakfast dishes and piles of laundry and high-jumps onto the couch to begin her day of watching Oprah and Soaps.
8:01 (correction) - Wife reads my blog, then calls me to remind me how unfunny I am.
