It’s time for Five Minute Friday over on Kate Motaung’s blog! Set the timer, write for five minutes, and post! Today’s word prompt: rise.
The alarm didn’t go off at 6:30 this morning.
I overslept! My daughter would be late for work because I wasn’t there on time to babysit Sawyer (number one grandson)!
I ran downstairs, aware that there were a number of people in the house as I frantically jerked on my socks with my robe. I tried so hard to move faster, but I quickly became aware that these people were here for me! It was my surprise birthday party from Jim (hubs) and they were all hiding in our bedroom – with a mystery present!
At 7:00 AM. In the morning.
“I DON’T HAVE TIME FOR THIS!!!” I yelled, running towards the door.
My mother got up to hug me goodbye (I was only going across town).
My mother-in-law also hugged me goodbye (why were they slowing me down?).
I dashed out the door, jumped into the 1954 Studebaker, and realized the whole family was already in the car. Grandpa was at the wheel, grandma in her Sunday best, complete with hat!
“I can’t do this, I have to drive!” I jumped out and into my own vehicle.
The alarm went off at 6:30 this morning.
It was all a dream – WHAT A RELIEF!!!
Time to rise!
P.S. This dream was a true story – in that I had this actual dream this morning. It was a no brainer when I saw the topic!
