Morning Debacle … One More Day!

We have to get up an hour early to administer my antibiotic, it takes 50-60 minutes.  There are only two more days left, you’d think we would have it down pat by now.  Just one of us needs to remember to set our alarm, We’ve been doing this for the last six weeks.

This morning I woke up to our dog Finn laying on my chest licking my face, he is a bit like a cat that way.  I was confused because he doesn’t usually get up until after 6:00 AM.  I look at my phone it’s 6:15, and I realize something isn’t right. The antibiotic should be almost done and we haven’t even started it!

As annoyed as I am at Finn, I am grateful he woke me up because who knows when we would have got moving!  My husband gets everything set up and running and when things are finished I have 20 minutes to get ready for school. That means a super quick shower and whatever I can grab out of the refrigerator for lunch. 

I am still confused as to what could have happened then I check my phone and see that I set my alarm for my regular time, an hour later.  Thankfully there’s just one more day of this crazy routine and then my family can all get back on our usual time schedule.

I am participating in the March Slice of Life Challenge: A slice a day for all of March. Thank you, Two Writing Teachers! Readers, check out their site, and start slicing! This is my first year participating!

  1. Hi Kris, My dad had to have intravenous antibiotics at home every twelve hours for three weeks straight. He was so happy to get the feed taken out. Here’s hoping the next few days go quickly for your!


  2. How stressful this all must be! I’m glad to hear you only have one more day of this schedule. Finn must have sensed something wasn’t right this morning:)


  3. Sounds like you had a great support system to help with the unusual schedule.


  4. Even though it wasn’t the pace you expected, it sounds like you handled it well and that there’s a light at the end of the tunnel!
