I need a Mulligan!

To say this morning didn't start out well, is well, an understatement. The Husband had to be at work early so he was out the door before we were fully awake. At 7:20 we realized that H2's shoes were in The Husband's car. He was 25 miles north of where we were so that was a wash. I rushed everyone in the car and was backing out of the driveway when I realized Target didn't open until 8 AM.
FYI, its testing week, so late is NOT a good thing.
So I went back inside tried to deal with the Diana Ross hair I had this morning. Put the straight iron to it and swished a little mascara on. No, makeup for Dijea today. Then rushed and dropped E off at school. Then went to Target with H2 in a pair of socks. Finally got him a pair of tennis shoes that fit him and we walked to the check out counter with H2 in his sock feet. The cashier was kind enough to cut off all the tags so we could put them on right there instead of walking back to the car for me to cut them off. So I rushed back to the school - had to walk him in to sign the tardy slip. Then left my brand new sunglasses on the counter at the school. Luckily they were still there and the secretary is holding them at her desk for me.
I realized in my stress haze that I hadn't taken my blood pressure meds and they were back at the house so I rushed back to the house grabbed my pills and rushed to the office. Sigh...
All this before 9 AM.

shhhhh.... just breathe! And be glad you now have a spare pair of shoes for the kid! I can remember dragging my oldest into a grocery store around 7am one morning when he was about 3 to get him a pair of cheap plastic sandals I knew they carried because his only pair of shoes was missing. That was way back when I was doing the single mom thing and money was tighter than tight. It's probably the reason my kids and I now have way more shoes than we could ever really need. It's kinda stupid really, lol.
