whaa? huh? What time is it!

"Oh shit!" My first words spoken this morning. I woke up to the phone ringing, looked at the clock, 9AM! 9? 9! Oh my gosh. I am supposed to be at work at 8:30. I rushed to dress while I waited for the kids to get off the phone. Out the door! I made it to work by 9:10!

I can't believe it. I am one of those people who HAS to take a shower too. Well not today. At least my hair always looks good the second day after washing although it rarely happens that I don't wash it.

When I got to work it was so sweet the way my staff were worried about me. Thanks to them!

I saw my boss about 11am. She said did I forget something this morning? Did you have an appointment? I meant to call you, she said, but I had to go to a meeting. I looked at her and said "I woke up at 9am". She started laughing so hard. I do have the best boss. She knows that is so not like me. I am often there as early as 7:30 (although usually more like 8).

All day I felt off. You know how that works? I made sure I relaxed and got some coffee. The rest of the day went well. About 4pm. I said outloud "I am so tired.... I don't know why, I slept in". There were giggles all around.

some days are just off days, I would have been stressed too. I am glad you have understanding co-workers who know you well.
