I jump out of bed knowing my alarm didn’t buzz waking me at the usual time. Oh no! I overslept!
I dash to the bathroom, turn on the shower, and begin setting up my cosmetics. I forgot to turn on the coffee pot!
Scurrying to the kitchen, I quickly press the “brew” button. I hear a loud and long beep. No water. I check the filter. Empty. Not a fresh coffee ground in sight. Didn’t I prep this last night?
I reach up into the cabinet for coffee grounds and a filter when I noticed my son’s lunchbox sitting on the counter. Why isn’t this in the fridge?
I pivot and spin a 180 to check the fridge for proof I did make our lunches. In mid spin, my glance caught sight of papers, books, and writing utensils noticeably spread across the table. Why did I not pack my backpack?
“What is going on?” I gritted through my teeth.
As if on cue, my husband emerges from the bedroom with a puzzled look on his face. “What’s going on? I heard a lot of noise.”
“I’m trying to get ready for school, but I apparently didn’t prep anything. I’m feeling overwhelmed!”
“That’s because today is Saturday and you’re on Spring Break.”
“Oh.” At hearing this, I turn off the shower water and go back to bed.
