Yes, you understood it correctly. "Off course" literally refers to a ship that is lost (ie. not sailing in accordance with its original plan), and the woman's day could be described as such. She had a plan originally, but events pulled her in a different direction.

She wouldn't be able to have the morning in bed! The expression is not very common but it means "The day is different from how she planned it" or "The day is not how she wanted it to be".
