Yep. We were late for church. Sounds like a normal occurrence, no? But it wasn’t just a normal late; this was in Esther style for sure. For all my friends that refer to their, “Esther” moments. This one’s for you! 😉
First of all I Woke up late. Does anything good ever happen on the days you wake up late? That probably added to the commotion. I forgot to set my alarm.
After a quick cup of coffee I found myself locked out of my bedroom. It was the worst possible morning to have that happen. So when I should have been hurriedly painting my face, I stood there waiting for my husband to finish his shower and come open the door. I have a key. I do! I just couldn’t get it to work.
I threw (That one’s for you, Mom.) myself together in record time, and like a drill sergeant I rushed everyone out the door and told them to load the van. As I was locking the door here came one of my girls. She had…stepped in poo! My husband gallantly cleaned off her shoe in the hose and handed it back to her. Insert smile here.
Then Jason disappeared back into the house. We all smoldered in the van. A few minutes went by, but Jason still wasn’t coming. Finally, I called him on his phone. “What’s going on?”
“Well, first I had to put the fire out…” Ha! Someone had accidentally leaned up against our stove turning a burner on. The towel which had been resting happily and looking forward to the quiet in this usually noisy home met a sad and painful death. I’m so glad Jason ran back inside to get something! Who knows what we would have found after church. My hero!
When Jason finally came back out to get in the van, a Texas sized bird had “crapped all over” his side of the door. There was no way he was driving to church like that. But after a quick car wash we were finally on our way.
So that’s why we were late. What’s your excuse? 😉
A person would have to be awfully hard-hearted to blame you for being late after all that!
lol It was such a crazy morning! One or two things going wrong is just normal for us, but this… 🙂
Can’t match your ‘Esther moment’. You can turn a potential disaster into a genuine laugh. My nearest moment. I overslept but still went out for a run. Caught a sudden storm and got totally drenched. Husband and kids went on ahead as I tried to get changed. The sodden sports top glued itself to me and got totally stuck over my head. I couldn’t see so couldn’t call my husband. I tried to wriggle out of the top for ages but failed. I knew I was going to be late but had no idea how I was going to get out of this situation.
Oh my goodness! I laughed out loud because…you know I’ve been there. Did you happen to catch my similar situation>>> https://www.laughwithusblog.com/help-im-stuck-in-a-sports-bra-and-i-cant-get-out/ Ha ha! How did you recover??
Thanks for the link. It’s good to know we have a problem in common as I thought I was the only one.😃 There is one big difference though. You finally managed to free yourself without help. I couldn’t!😂 The sports top had its own bra that was now over my face😂😂 I’d also taken my shorts off so felt very embarrassed😡 Half an hour later I heard the front door open. Broke into a cold sweat but relieved to hear my husband’s voice. When he came into our room I heard him laugh and ask why I hadn’t drawn the curtains. That really made me panic until he admitted he was teasing. I’m planning my revenge!👹
That is HILARIOUS!!! So glad your husband came to the rescue. I still don’t know what I would have done had I not managed to get out of the sports bra in that hotel room. lol
It shows a man around the house is useful. I’d have been in real trouble if he hadn’t helped although after the curtain jibe I’m still seeking revenge! Have you every needed your husband to help you get something on or off?
