Think of me Thursday #bloghop #thursday

This morning I hit the snooze button one too many times.

After waking up and realizing I would need to get myself and the boys together lightning speed I began the motions.

Then I saw it was raining and windy. So I checked the “weather app” on my phone. There were FIVE severe warnings posted for our area including the heavy rain, wind gusts up to 50 mph and a tornado watch to name some of them. So then I was hunting for Braeden’s rain coat which while it fit him is indeed a size too small to be comfortable.

Then I grabbed the taekwondo bag-o-gear, the diaper bag, my purse, my lunch, my coffee and the book bag in my lowly two arms. I ran outside in the rain to put said items in the car only to come back inside and see Finnegan standing at the top of the steps, gated in and very angry that I did not take him out into the rain.

We all had our shoes on, our coats on and were ready for the short trek to day care. HA! Short…not so much, there was a back up in traffic due to the school bus accident at the intersection where I needed to turn. It appeared that there were not any children on the bus which was good news. The car who ran into the back of the bus did not look so hot.

After finally arriving at day care, getting everything/everyone inside and then running back outside to drive to work was a whirlwind. I would not have been surprised if I had seen one of the kids still in the car while driving to work. Fortunately, that was not the case.

Almost to work I see the power has gone out, the traffic lights are out and chaos is in full gear. Yay! I’m sitting, waiting, listening to weather reports of nearby flooding and how the weather will become more severe as the day progresses…

So then I think about what my brother would say. He would say “Christy, you need to thank the situation for testing your patience so you can learn to tolerate more and grow. You need to ‘say thank you weather’ for making me take things slower this morning so that I get to work safely.”

Baby brother of mine, you’re too wise for your age.

Did you know there is a Thursday 13 Blog Hop?

You answer these 13 questions:

101. When was the last time you went to the doctor? Do you like your doctor? In May 2010, and yes I like her, she’s sassy.

201. My back is itching, will you scratch it for me? For a stranger probably not, because if a stranger asked me to do that I would think it was very weird.
