When the sun is too bright, something's not right

I woke up so calmly this morning. I felt rested and the sun seemed to be so bright in the morning sky.

With all those great things, I realized something must be wrong. I usually groggily wake up to the alarm clock and hit snooze several times first and the sun was just a little too bright in the morning sky.

That's when it dawned on me. I reached for my phone and to my utter horror saw the time - 7:44. I was supposed to be on my way to work already. If work wasn't an hour away that would've have been a problem, but alas, I have to leave at 7:30 on the dot to get to work on time and be a responsible employee.

So, I threw on some clothes - no make-up and no brushed teeth even. Grabbed an empty bottle of water and some fruit snacks and headed out approximately 4 minutes later.

It's a good thing there aren't any mirrors close. I did throw on some make-up at the occassional stop light.

I don't like that feeling of being an irresponsible worker! The ironic thing is that I double checked my alarm clock last night to assure that I'd be up and out on time.


  1. oh sister - this is a funny story. i like your little adventures about you new working-woman life. i have done this more times than i care to remember. it doesn't make you irresponsible. Here's what you do next time - because it will definitely happen again- keep breakfast cereal in your desk, along with a bowl and a spoon. then just pour milk in a water bottle and you have breakfast at work! always shower at night - this way, you'll never go to work stinky. keep crackers and granola bars in your drawer at work. :) hope those are good tips!

  2. no worries - I have snacks in my desk and a toothbrush and toothpaste. I keep a little brush in my purse and my first client brought me a big bag of candy....for breakfast.

  3. Oh that is the worst feeling to see the time when that happens! I have enjoyed reading your blog Becky! Sorry I don't leave a comment very often!
