"Just Another Manic Monday"

Really, it was! A MANIC MONDAY!!! While I wasn't really ready for my Spring Break to be over, I certainly did not wish to start my week back to work in Manic Madness!

Has this ever happened to you??? ...

You go to bed late, wake up a time or two in the middle of the night for a bathroom break, and then the next thing you know you open your eyes, look over at the clock, and ...

Scream! That's right, you scream because the clock says 7:25 and you are supposed to be at work in 5 minutes. Yes, 5 minutes! 5 MINUTES!!!!!

Even if I didn't have to take a shower, dry my hair, get dressed, put on some make-up, grab some breakfast, pack my lunch, and run out the door. I still couldn't make it to work in 5 minutes. It takes me 15 minutes just to drive to work! You do the math on that one!

So, I called school to let them know I would be late and then hit the floor like a
{My husband says I should take a shower that fast all of the time. Hmph!}

Let me tell you, ladies and geezermen, I DID take a shower, dry my hair, get dressed, put on some make-up, grab some breakfast, pack my lunch, run out the door, AND fly drive to work all in a matter of 45 minutes! That's right, I made it to work by 8:10. Remember it takes me 15 minutes just to drive to work. Not to mention the few minutes I took to call work. How fast did I get ready for work on this Manic Monday? -- you do the math!

Oh, and of course I had to allow some time to growl at my husband for setting the alarm clock for 5:55pm! This is the reason behind all of my Manic Madness in the first place! Grr! But the hubster says I should be thanking him for getting me that extra hour and a half of sleep - I. DON'T. THINK. SO. I'll be double checking his alarm setting skills tonight! I will make sure it's set for a.m.

However, at the end of the day, I survived and I still LoVe my husband! {By the way, thankfully my daugher spent the night at my parents' last night. She made it to school on time, thanks to my mother!}


  1. What a great way to start a Monday!!! NOT!!
    I think I'm OCD about setting the alarm. I even check it like 5 times before finally laying down and twice before settling down to sleep. I guess it's one of my biggest fears.

    Why do men give us a hard time about the amount of time it takes us to get ready?? Don't they like us looking good. Glad I'm not the only one who hears it : )
