I just hope my literal miscalculation does not translate into it's well known figurative counterpart.
Also, I keep my alarm on the dresser so that I must get out of bed to shut it off, and yet I always use the snooze button (more than once). One would think I would adjust the alarm to the actual time I get up.
I have no idea why I don't, even though I've realized the inconsistancy.
But this morning I only pressed snooze once. Well, technically twice, but the second time I remembered I planned on making my inaugural attempt at German Pancakes, so I got up anyway. My goal is to make sure the kids eat breakfast every morning and that it is something other than cereal or, sometimes, a slice of bread thrust into their hand as they are running to the bus stop. I don't mean something other than that everyday, only half the days.
To do it everyday I would be forced to confront my 2-3 snooze habit more often. Baby steps.
The thing I have to remind myself about baby steps is that babies may take small steps towards their goal, and they may be quite wobbly, but they sure do take a lot of them, quickly, and get up when they fall. I think I misuse the term baby steps to mean "I'm too lazy/unmotivated to actually plan on achieving my goal."
But maybe not, as I have managed to make muffins and German pancakes this week and cereal has replaced bus-running-bread-thrusting breakfast the rest of the time (mostly).
The other thing I need to remind myself about baby steps is that I haven't seen What About Bob in years and it might be on the movies-you're-a-loser-if-you-don't-show-your-children-before-they-grow-up list. I'm not sure about that, though, as I am a pop culture moron.
I have crossed Indiana Jones, Ghostbusters, Star Wars, and Sound of Music off that list, though. Baby steps.
Now I am off to finish prepping for preschool, as it is my turn to host. We are learning about the letter M so I bought M&M's and we're making M monsters. Later, I'm making a 3D elephant cake to celebrate Joseph's birthday early as Peter will be out of town again next week. Oh, and I found out yesterday that today is only a half day at school, so the kids will be home around lunch. Maybe a trip to the library this afternoon is in order?
I should really try to not wake up on the wrong side of the bed anymore; it shorts out my randomness filter.
