So, somedays I get ready in the dark.....

As many of you know I recently returned to the world of the working. It's a really cool place to be and I do honestly enjoy the challenge of working outside of the home. I thought I would share with all of you one of my BIGGEST ANNOYANCES challenges of the whole return to the land of the adults thing and I bet it's not AT ALL what you would think.
Each morning as I drag my sweet sweet ate too much xmas goodies butt out of bed and sneak over our creaky floors to the shower in the dark, all I can think is pleasedon'twakethekidsordogpleasedon'twakethekidsordogpleasedon'twakethekidsordog. If I successfully make it into the bathroom, shower, put my face on and dress, my next challenge is using the light from the screen of my blackberry to navigate my way into the kitchen and get the coffee poured, a slice of toast or cup of yogurt and my lunch. *If* I make it to this stage without waking the kids, I continue to use my flashlight blackberry screen to find my coat, shoes, sales bag, purse and keys. I successfully accomplished this the other day. It felt great. Then I set off my car alarm. *sigh* Yep. I woke the kids.

Hahaha! Did the kids wake up? Mine would have slept right through the car alarm even though they would wake up to the slightest creak in the floor!

Yep. I woke them Shauna, figured I should update that and fix my typo.

Oh crap! I hate that. Mine is sneaking down to the basement to quickly check emails before I get dressed. I hate creaky floors. I suppose I should really invest in a blackberry!

Funny, my toddler can sleep through fire alarms, loud parties, sirens from ambulance/fire truck/police car, etc...but if I get out of bed and try to walk to the bathroom or kitchen, she hears me and wakes up! lol
