Losing my mind...

So I have a funny story to tell about what happened to me this morning. I set an alarm to get up early, which by the way is something that I never do. My husband has to be up at 5am so I usually wake up with him and then go back to bed for a little while, but I knew that this morning I needed to get up and get some things done because I had an assignment to speak in Sacrament meeting today and also to teach gospel doctrine today. So even though I went back to bed after Tyson left this morning I still got up early. I hurried and got myself ready for church so that I would not be late. I wanted to make sure that I was ready to go in case I ran out of time while I finished preparing both my talk and my lesson. Anyway, I had my whole schedule planned out and had set myself to leave at 9:15 to make sure that I got to church about ten minutes early. Anyway, I went into my bedroom this morning at 9:07 to grab my shoes and cardigan when I finally realized CHURCH STARTED AT 9:00! I don't know how I forgot that. We've been going to this ward for three months now and I have never been late but for some reason the day that I need to speak I forget what time church starts at. Anyway, I ran out the door and actually drove to church (it is only a block away) and walk in right as the Sacrament Hymn was finishing. I was so embarrassed because of course I had to sit on the stand. Anyway, I was a little but shaken by that so it took me a little bit to gather my bearings. Then, after than embarrassing situation did I get to just sit back, NO, I had to go and substitute Gospel Doctrine. Needless to say, I was glad when it came time for Relief Society so that I could finally step away from a pulpit and sit down and be quiet. Anyway, it made for an interesting morning which I am grateful is finally over.
