A: Just some minor changes.
"Sorry, I just woke up." Saying "earlier" sounds like you got up earlier in the morning, which doesn't really make sense in this situation.
"I'm getting ready and then I'm heading over there." No need for all the commas. Also, since you are getting ready you can't be heading there "right now", since that would be doing 2 things at once.
Just small errors, overall good work :)
