mornings suck

For your consideration:
  • 6:20 - alarm goes off
  • 6:28 - snooze
  • 6:36 - get out of bed, go pee, choose clothes (I should start laying them out at night, huh.)
  • 6:45 - shower. get dressed. blow dry my bangs (no time to do the whole head), brush my teeth
  • 7:00 - my favorite part of the morning. I open the bathroom door and I hear: "hi, Mommy!" Change diaper, blow raspberries, change clothes
  • 7:15 - head to the kitchen. Get Ollie some milk, take the dog out, pour coffee, pile into the car.
  • 7:30 - drop Ollie off at daycare. Most days I set him down and he says "Mommy go to work? Bye Mommy!" I make him come back to the door and give me hugs and kisses, then he's on his way.
  • Drive to work.

So the other day, while driving to work, I started laughing at myself. Like, if people in passing cars saw me... they'd think I was nuts.

Alone, in my car, LOLing so much I nearly had tears in my eyes.

Why? There I am, hands at 10 and 2, eyes on the road, focused on traffic... listening to some radio show folks talking about some fashion something or another.

And I can't remember what color shirt I'm wearing.

I do everything from 6:30 am to about 8:00 am on complete and total auto-pilot. It took a while for me to map out that list, trying to remember the order that I do things!
