Punctuality

I'm a fan of punctuality. Of course, that doesn't always mean that I'm punctual myself. I Try to be, I do. It just doesn't always work out that way.

I understand if you're late for something. I know things can happen.

If I invite you for a party and you're late, I can deal with that. Not a big deal.

If you're supposed to take me somewhere and we're late, it's OK. I'll live.

If I'm waiting for you to give me a ride and it takes a few extra minutes for you to show up, I'll get over it.

I can deal with most anyone being late.

However . . .

When Mother Nature is late. Then we have problems!

Seriously, Mother Nature? Really? Two WHOLE DAYS late?!?! This isn't like being a few minutes late or anything. I can get over that. No, this is like, you're so freakin' late that I'm sent into freak-out mode.

This is, What the heck am I going to say to J, late! This is, am I ready for this, late! This is, I can't believe you're doing this to me right now, late!

I know two days doesn't sound like much but Mother Nature has always been faithful to me. Always. I don't know what I did to tick her off.

When she finally showed up I didn't know what to think. I had sort of resigned myself to the inevitable.

It was funny. The day before J was cleaning out our storage closet. There sat a half a pack of size one diapers left over from when the Kiddo was itty bitty. J calls me in and says "Are you ever going to use these diapers?"

What I said was "How should I know?" What I thought was "I DON'T KNOW BUT YOU BETTER KEEP THEM AROUND BECAUSE WE MIGHT BE USING THEM SOONER THAN YOU THINK!!!!"

I'm better now, Mother Nature and I have made up.

HOWEVER, the next time she decides to take a vacation she better well leave me a note or call me or something!!

I admit, I'm always excited if I'm late...and I'm not that regular so being late is not abnormal for me. I'm happy with 2 kids...don't want a 3rd...but there's part of me that is a romantic about babies and thinks an honest-to-goodness surprise would be (terrifyingly) fun.

My dear aunt flow is a big fat bitch. You can't count on her for anything. The big shock for me is when she actually decides to show up! I'm all like, "who are you again?" and "oh crap, I'm not even slightly prepared for your visit!"
