You know you're tired when...

... you only have one freeway to take to work, and you end up on the wrong one!

Yup, that happened to me this morning. To go to work, I usually take just the 5 freeway. Well, the onramp is right before the 2 Freeway, and if you don't change lanes, guess which freeway you end up on. I was in such a fog on my way to work, that I didn't realize I was on the 2 Freeway until I was halfway to the first exit. By then, I realized I was no longer on the 5 freeway and I had to take the 134 Freeway to get to work. Now that's sad. Instead of taking one freeway to work, I had to take two.

On the bright side... I went to get my mocha at Gloria Jean's and Johonny/Juan/whatever-his-name-is mentioned that he hadn't seen me in awhile. HE NOTICES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sigh.

Why was I tired this morning? Well, we did have youth camp last week. Saturday was my recharge day and what did I end up doing? Getting up before nine to take my cousins to a "Rock the Bells" event in San Bernandino, came back, went with Sherisse to get a pedicure, then came home and spent the day doing laundry and working on the slideshow for Brother Darry and Sister Berda's going-away Potluck. On my way to San Bernandino, a car picked up a rock or huge piece of concrete and chucked it at my car. It missed my windshield just by inches! A few inches to the right and it wouldn've hit the windshield right in front of me! Then I left around 11:30 to pick up more coffee, went to Diane's house for an hour and half to pick up pictures, then I went BACK to San Bernandino to pick up said cousins.

Well, got there around two, took a wrong turn and ended up in a LONG line of cars trying to get out. Found said cousins, took the wrong way out of San Bernandino, found the freeway, and got home around 3:30. But was I smart enough to go to bed? Obviously not, because I spent the next four hours working on the same slideshow. By 7:30, I finished what I could, gave up, slept for an hour and half, got up, went to Sunday School, got yelled at for being late by a few minutes. It only took me three minutes to get to church that morning. I kept checking for cops, going 50-60 MPH in a 35 zone. Shh, don't tell anyone.

Sunday was just like the rest of the week. After I took attendance, I went back home to pick up the Slideshow/Picture CD, went back to church. Got there in time to give my Starbucks order to Sherisse, and even in time for the choir quickie. It only took me like ten/fifteen minutes to go back and forth. After church, as we were getting ready for the potluck, we found out I didn't communicate well enough. We had no laptop for the slideshow. So what did we do? Got in the car, I went back to my house, grabbed my computer (minus the monitor and printer) and brought THAT back to church.

We had the potluck, and I didn't leave till like four or so. Went home, dropped off computer, showered, and headed to Nina's where we were having a get together. When I got home, I crawled into bed (which was half covered with stuff. But hey, I fell asleep in the same pile earlier). Got lots of sleep, got up, and went to work. Had a good day at work. Within my first hour, I had a $910 sale! And that was just from ONE person. After work, I came back home to get my phone charger, went to Sherisse to pick up my phone (she accidentally put it in her bag), then left to babysit for Terri (who by the way lives like 35-45 minutes away). When I was done there, I came back, picked up my mom, took her somewhere, and I got home at nine.

Now, I will say good night so I can get some sleep! Hopefully tomorrow I won't get on the wrong freeway to go to work.
