So of course today’s going to be one of those ‘I can’t believe I did that’ days…while I’m a morning person and can adapt to things fairly quickly even in a foggy state, hubby is not. He needs to have his morning coffee before his brain can function properly. Which is why I’m so nice and wake up early and get the coffee all ready – so we can have some quiet time and our morning coffee together before he heads out. Sure, it’s usually both of us in the same room on our computers, but we’ll have snippets of conversation in between the clicking of the keyboards and slurping of the coffee…just a nice way to start the day.
Keep in mind, however, that I still do this ‘routine’ no matter what – if I’m sicker than a dog, I still drag myself out of bed and make the coffee and see him off to work. Not because I have to, but because I want to. It would be so much easier if he had a ‘regular’ schedule – but he doesn’t. He doesn’t leave at the same time every morning and get home at the same time every night. I always have to check to find out what time he has to be at work the next morning to change the alarm clock setting accordingly. He’s the Program Director for several programs, so he gets pulled in a million different directions. When an instructor is out, he usually has to coordinate who will take that instructor’s class, and if there’s no one and it’s a class he’s taught before, he’ll step in and take that class for the absent instructor. So it can get a bit confusing throughout the year…
I think it’s time to add an alarm clock to his side of the bed…not that he’ll actually wake up to it, he seems to have that ‘tuned out’ mode when any alarm is going off, I usually have to nudge him before he wakes up. But at least it will ‘annoy’ me awake and I can’t reach it to turn it off, so it will hopefully avoid these random mornings when I end up accidentally hitting the ‘off’ button on my alarm and blissfully sleeping in…then he can’t cop an attitude towards me for not waking him up on time (which he does, and he really shouldn’t because he’s a big boy and should be able to wake himself up responsibly!).
So hubby left in a frumpy mood this morning, only conversation we had was:
Hubby: “What happened?”
Me: “I think I hit the off button instead of the snooze button…I’m sorry…”
Hubby: “I’m supposed to be there in two minutes!”
Me: “I know, I’m sorry…”
Off to work he goes…he better get over himself and his frumpiness by the time he gets home this evening… I’m just sayin’! >;o)~
