As per usual, I woke up five minutes before my first alarm clock was ready to go off at 2:20. I turned it off and rolled over to grab another five or ten minutes of sleep. I have another alarm that goes off at 3, just in case my five or ten minutes turns into something a little longer. I’m usually up before that second alarm swings into action.
This morning I woke up thinking all was fine because I didn’t hear my second alarm go off. I rolled over and had a glance at the clock on the dresser that read 3:08. What? I couldn’t believe it. I somehow forgot to turn that stupid alarm on before I went to bed. I was now about half an hour behind where I usually am at that time of day.
I bolted out of bed and headed straight for the shower. I don’t know how I can shower any faster than I usually do, but this morning I managed to do it. I put on everything I had to in the bathroom and raced into the bedroom to get dressed. When I was ready I checked the clock. It took fourteen minutes to get ready. Not bad, but I don’t think it would be an Olympic record.
I grabbed my keys and made my way out to my vehicle. S***! In my haste,I forgot to start it before I jumped into the shower. What a morning this was starting off to be! So, I jumped into my ice cold vehicle and took off. By the time my vehicle started to warm up I was nearly at work already.
I managed to get everything done on time, but it felt like I was playing catch up all morning.
Before bed tonight, I think I’ll have my wife double check the alarm, just to make sure I turn it on.
