Panic Mode

I looked at the clock and it said 7:54. Through the slats of my blinds, I could see the sky was overcast, as it has been several mornings in a row. I rolled over, gave CruiserDog a little snuggle, smiled and said to myself....."I love Sundays like this."

Then my eyes flew open and a sense of panic took over and made my skin crawl. I'd said that exact sentence yesterday.

Yes-ter-day.

Uh huh - that's how I began today.

Somehow I got myself into high gear, got ready for work, took CruiserDog outside for a pee and made it to work only 15 minutes late.

Why can't I move like that everyday? I mean, I could really get into sleeping until 8:00 everyday.

Cruiser-I HATE when I wake up late and it takes a minute for it to sink in!lol Then it truly is panic mode. I don't know what your commute is like, but mine's 45 minutes! Plus, do you ever have that dream where you are up and go through your getting ready routine and ready to walk out the door and then...the alarm goes off. I HATE that effin dream too...

PS-Cruiserdog needs a dog door.

For real though, isn't it amazing how fast you really can move through all of your maintenance when you're late? Maybe it's the endrenaline. They need a drink like that!

Lindy - It's true - I was a wreck for at least an hour after I got to work. I hate being late for anything. The drink that does that is called coffee. LOL

Sassy B - My commute is all of 5 minutes, but I like to be leisurely in the morning....to have at least 1/2 hour to chill before I leave the house. Not Monday, nun-unh. I've never had a dream about getting dressed for work. It seems that once you have that one, it means you need a vacation - BAD.

I commence my vacation starting this Friday!! Woo hoo! Contract days are done, bitches! It's me, my floatie and the pool from here on out....

Summer rocks!

And why the hell do you have comment moderation? Have you gotten a lot of spam?

CruiserMel said...

Sassy B -
1. I had to get comment moderation due to quite an ugly human being (okay, I'm being nice) who made some rude remarks here. I'll probaby drop it soon. Sorry if it's a pain - I know it is - but some folks is pains in the arses.
2. Vacation? What's that? lol It sounds like you deserve it! Take a dip in the pool for moi. Besides, I don't like getting my hair wet. Such a girlie girl. Heh.

the exact same thing happened to me awhile back - it was a Friday morning and I woke up thinking it was Saturday - due to Thursday night partying like a rock star. At least you made it to work in good time...can you believe I actually lied on my couch and wondered why Regis & Kelly were on on a Saturday morning. Uhm hmm. Been there, done it ;)

Tug - If I can start my day quietly, I find I can get more done - and better than if I'm frenzied.

Golightly - NO WAY! You got up and watched telly? I'm crying laughing now.
