Today was my firt day of class. I had a philosophy class at nine. I also have to wake up 3 girls for school. I have to manage to get myself ready, get the kids ready and fed, then wake up the baby and get her fed and taken care of. I then drop off the kids at school and take Gabbi to Daycare. Today was her first day.
Things began to go wrong when I was only about 5 minutes away from the Daycare. I got stuck behind a truck carrying one of those large blinking arrows that they use during road construction. I was many cars back and no one was passing. He was cruising at about 10 miles an hour TOPS. Finally after having lost way too much time for my first day of class I got Gabbi dropped off and headed out to the college.
About 3 miles from the school when things were looking hopeful it got destroyed again. It became a one lane road the rest of the way to the school. This lane moved slower than the previous truck. We were not moving much of the time. I got to school at probably 9:15. My class started at 9:00. Unsure of what I should do I parked 8 million mile away since it was the only spot available and then walked another 1000 miles to the class that I realized I could not find. I saw the numbers on the building 231.......234....uhh....wait. I need 232. I go back. Yes that is 231. I go ahead again. 234. Well where in the world is 232? I then get the ingenious idea to go INTO the building at 231 and see if gets me to 232 which it does. By then it's 9:30 a.m. and my class is over at 9:50...so you guessed it. I missed my first day. I was fighting tears! I could not believe my perfect day was ruined. So I came home and immediately e-mailed the teacher to explain and get any assignments. I do hope he understands.
What a horrible horrible morning! I hope that construction doesn't delay me like this every day. I saw a sign on the way home on one of the roads with no construction claiming construction begins on August 31st. Now go back and read my older post complaining about all the freaking road construction. I don't care about nice roads anymore. I am getting ticked off!!!
