I Was Robbed!

So, the alarm clock (a.k.a. my cell phone) goes off as it does Monday through Friday exactly at 5:20 a.m., but as always I snooze the little sucker once or twice before I finally get up. When I finally opened my eyes again I glanced at the cable box for the time and I decided it was time to get up and shower.

I took my time getting ready, headed for the kitchen, prepared me a coffee, and finished getting dressed. Glanced at the cable box again and was proud at how well I was doing with my time. I should be hitting the road soon and hopefully will be at work on time.

I even sat for a little bit watching the news then went to brush my teeth, that's when my eye caught something that should not be there. As I looked out the window I saw light as in daylight. Daylight? I can't be seeing daylight, most of my commute is when it's still dark so why is there daylight?

I go to the cable box again and look at the time. It now shows 6:55 a.m. SIX FIFTY FIVE!!! What the heck? I go in to work at 7:00 a.m. Somehow my snooze lasted exactly an hour because my mind registered that I was on time by looking at the minute side of the clock but never caught on that it was already an hour late.

Needless to say I was late to work but not too bad as I only came in late 35 minutes.

OK, this happened yesterday not today. So, this morning my alarm clock (a.k.a. my cell phone) went off and I got up, hit the shower, got dressed, made me a coffee, hit the road and was in to work at 6:30 a.m.

Ha, ha, ha, what a difference it makes to not snooze.

Oh now I know why I loved retired life...I can open my eyes in the morning and say..."Do I roll over, or roll out".....most of the time I say roll over!!! Love it.

I guess if you're the can go in late.

I believe everyone can come in late on occasion. Making a bad habit of it would totally represent a problem.

well that must have been a shock! Daylight when it should have been dark.

I remember my working days and frantically trying to get to work on time when I was late.

Now I can sleep in all I want...except for today, I need to get up and move..someone is coming to look at my house this morning...
