I hear my radio and the WSB radio news team filling me in on breaking news from the overnight hours.
I stumble out of bed, getting myself ready before the troops awaken. Ready to enjoy the quiet of morning with my first cup of coffee in hand, I turn on my laptop computer and start working on my paid gig.
“Mommy. I have to go potty, but Joe didn’t flush, and he pooped. It smells yucky.”
“Mommy. I can’t find my favorite shirt.”
“Mommy. Can I come out of my room yet?”
“Mommy. I lost four beads to my bracelet.”
I turn on the TV so the boys can watch ‘Word Girl’, as I remind the boys they are supposed to stay in their room until 6:30AM. While the boys get settled and start watching TV, I sip my coffee and start entering leads into a database.
The work laptop shuts off without a message or warning of any kind. I am unable to restart the laptop. No pulse, what.so.ever.
