OH MY GOSH!! What a crazy morning!
So today was my first day babysitting the new little boy here in Raleigh. I had to be there at 6:30...AM and stayed until around 8:45...well there's more too it but i'll get there! I got up at 5 this morning, because I just couldn't sleep and I had to be up at 5:45 anyways. I slept all last night with my head buried under my covers and pillows, because DID ANYONE SEE ONE TREE HILL?? Well, I did and when that gas station attendant was dead in the back, and then Q got shot...I was scared to death!
So anyways, I get up at 5, watch the news for a bit and then head out the door...or so I thought! I get to my car, and its so dark outside...so number 1 i'm scared, and number 2 I was already running late!!
As I went to get in my car, my key chains felt lighter, and my car key had been hanging off lately but of course I didn't do anything about it because "there's always later!" So my key dissapeared, and I couldn't find it anywhere...I kept my composure and went into my roommates room and that BRAVE girl let me borrow her car!
So anyways, I got there 2 minutes late and the mom was still there...which is weird because she said she would never be there when I got there, turns out she locked her keys in her car too!! She is such a nice person, and we talked about what great mornings we were having haha! While she was waiting for triple A, we watched Good Morning America, and she likes McCain/Palin '08!
When I met her yesterday, her son was a very talkative outgoing kid...really cute! Her townhouse is really cute too, and she gave me the code for the gym and pool in case my roommates and I ever wanna use it! How laid back!
Anyways, so this morning she left about 7:45 and it was just "J" and I! I kept trying to make conversation, but he wouldn't say much..maybe because it was 8 am and I looked like hell...probably scared the little guy!
Well, after he ate we got in my roommates car and I took him up the street to his bus stop. His mom likes us to walk, but please! I had to be back by 9 this morning so that I could get my roommates car back to her so she could get to class...I drove his ass to the bus stop!
As I drove in at 6:30am, I saw that there were a number of kids waiting for the bus,
...also a kid ran out in front of my car, and it was dark so did I see him, no!
Good thing he was a track star! haha!
So J told me that wasn't his bus stop, and that the place he waited there were no other kids! I had a hard time understanding that...because it was in an awkward spot! Well, its 8:15 and again I have to be back at school by 9 and the bus hasn't come...so I said J-man wheres the bus? He says "I forgot, its not coming today because I am going to the museum...and they are probably leaving soon!"
So I said okay, wheres your school because his mom said he knew how to get there...and he wouldn't answer...so I asked again, and again, and again! Eventually we got back in the car and I called the school they weren't good with directions! OMG!
Anyways, so I pulled out the laptop and tried map quest, but it kept freezing! It was 8:20 at this point and I was like, "Why God, Why?!"
I asked if he knew anyone we could call and he said his dad, so we called his dad and got directions, I was just to flying down the road and J kept saying, I hope you have your seat belt on because I bet you've had speeding tickets! HAHA!...only 1 or 2!
So anyways, it was so chaotic and I felt so awful because I thought Lord they are gonna hate me, I have scared this poor, poor boy and he will never want me to come back! Well we got to his school by 8:30 and while he was getting out of the car, I was yelling "EXCUSE ME!" to this guy crossing the street, bc I needed directions, and FAST! J's eyes were the size of pineapples! So I quickly said "Bye J, have a wonderful day, make it better then our morning!" We "pounded it" and then he went inside!
The guy gave me directions, and I made it back to my house by 8:58!!
I thrive under pressure!
J's mom called me ab 10 mins ago and was so apologetic...I told her it was the other way around, I was so so sorry! She said she hoped I wouldn't quit...which I would never quit! Its a great job! I told her to blame the bus system because that's the easiest thing to do! So that's what we agreed to do!
I am hoping tomorrow will be better, I really want to get J a prize so that maybe we can renew the relationship we never had! Any ideas??
Thanks girls, i'll post more later! I am on my way to meet another family to babysit for!!
