I haven’t been late for anything in quite a while. YAY me! I’ve realized that when I look at the clock and think to myself, “ahhhhh, I’ve got plenty of time, I’ll get ready later” that is the time that I need to be getting ready at. If the kids are all ready early, then I can leave early, and if I leave early, then even those little things that would have normally made me late (traffic, a poopy diaper, lost shoes, etc.) don’t make me late. Funny how what should be obvious isn’t always so obvious, LOL.

Made it to another basketball game/cheer performance on time, even with the DH out of town, 3 small children in tow, and my two-year-old’s major meltdown in the lobby on the way in, now that’s progress!
My daughter had a performance at a basketball game on Saturday night, and we got there on time. No running through the parking lot hoping she won’t get in trouble because of me. We even had time to get her with her group and still buy a drink before we sat down. What a nice feeling!
I’m tired of everyone knowing that if you invite me to something, count on me being late. My friends and family even tell me the wrong time so that when I’m late for something, I’m actually on time. I don’t want to let people down, I don’t want to let myself down!
