Why I Am ALWAYS Late for Work
I get up at 5:00, and I'm scheduled to be at work by 7:00. I work from 7:00 - 4:00. I can probably count on one hand the times I've been here by 7:00 so far this month. Maybe one finger. Why, you may ask? I have two HOURS to get ready, and I live 5 minutes from work. So it's not the drive. OK, here's the schedule:
5:00 Alarm goes off
5:05 Get out of bed
5:06 Turn on computer
5:07 Go downstairs. Feed dog. Make Maya's lunch. Do any cleaning that bugs me in the morning, but didn't bug me last night.
5:20 Take shower
5:30 Check work email
5:35 Check my blogging friends' sites
6:25 Realize that I'M A LOSER AND I NEED TO GET READY FOR WORK!!!
6:30 (When I SHOULD have left the house to walk the dog) Dry Hair
6:35 Get dressed, make up, make bed, etc.
6:50 Wake Maya up, take dog for walk
7:10-7:15 Leave house, late for work, AGAIN.
So, you see, it's all YOUR fault. I just think, I'll peek and see if Cherry posted. Cherry posted! Cherry NEVER posts! What about Autumn's Mom? New pictures of Tommy? Yay! What about L, is the nun giving her grief AGAIN? Is MIM stirring up another heated discussion? What's BiteMyCookie gonna do about the job? Wendy, what's new with you? POW? Ally Bean, Wino, Jessie, Gina all of my wonderful online addictions...On and on and on. It doesn't end. And sometimes I actually get around to POSTING something, too. And there I am, late again. Sigh. See, D & C (and Ted, too, he encouraged this), when you convinced me to start blogging, do you see what you started? "DO IT DO IT DO IT", you said, like 7th graders with stolen cigarettes. And I did it. Thank God you guys don't do drugs, or I'd be a crack whore living in the Tenderloin by now. That's all I'm sayin'.
