Oh, Crap!!

I rarely use this expression, but today those were the words that came out of my mouth. Let me explain.

I'm not one for eating breakfast first thing in the morning, so even though I had gotten up at 6 a.m. (My little guy is an early riser.), I hadn't realized until 9:50 a.m. that I had not eaten breakfast (drinking coffee suppresses my appetite).

I had just gotten a bowl of cereal with milk and had sat down in my chair when my little guy comes into the room and looks at his school calendar.

He asked, "Mom is today the tenth?" 

"Yes," I replied.

"Is today the day I'm supposed to go to my swimming lessons?"

His words register in my brain and I suddenly realized that his first swimming class was scheduled for today at 10:00 a.m.  I look at my computer and see that it is 10:00 a.m.

"Oh, Crap!!"

Next thing you know, we're frantically running around the house.  Thankfully, we were all dressed (this is a rare thing as we usually wear our p.j.'s until we're ready to leave the house), but I had to get my little guy to change into his bathing suit.  I'm telling everyone, "We have to hurry; put your socks and shoes on!  Hurry!  Hurry!"  (You would have thought there was a fire in our house.) 

We ran out of the house and at 10:10 a.m. pulled out of my garage.  As I'm driving I realized I forgot two things: comb my hair and put the cereal bowl in the refrigerator (so that the milk wouldn't spoil).  (Yes, in order not to waste the milk I would have eaten soggy cereal.)

Can someone tell me how you can talk about an event all week (my little guy was nervous about his swimming lessons and made sure to let me know how he felt about it almost on a daily lesson), and then on the day of the event, forget all about it?
