I totally understand that they are called away. I'm not mad about that. It's just that I don't think anyone realizes how difficult it is to get 3 kids and myself prepared to get out of the house. I had plans! I organized my time wisely! I showered! Did my hair! Put on makeup! I had my good underwear on! The kids were all fed, changed, and mostly happy. Everyone even had shoes on. I had a cooler bag packed with drinks for the kids while they stayed at Tiff's house! Seriously, people! My entire morning had been devoted to getting out of the house at 9:30.
...and I had so been looking forward to sitting in that waiting for even just 10 minutes, reading a magazine by myself. Even if I had to drop my pants to do it.
It was all gone in a two minute phone call. *sigh*
