I’m having a hard time getting in the groove this school year. The new work schedule and the new afternoon daycare has really thrown me off.
Yesterday, I stayed late at work to finish a report, then stopped by a co-worker’s office to chat for a few minutes and all of sudden I realized that it was 5:25 PM. And I couldn’t remember if the pick up time for S was 6 or 6:30.
I hit Route 78 which was, as usual, backed up and called the daycare. Yup, 6 PM. I got on the parkway and I just saw a line of cars crawling. It was 5:45 and I though there’s no way I’m going to make it.
I made it exactly by 6PM. Perspiring, running on high heels and out of breath. Phew. That is just no way to end the day!
I need to put a big ol’ sign on my monitor. Leave before 5PM!!! You would think I wouldn’t need to reminder.
