I could have slept an extra half hour. Somehow I managed to get ready for work in record time this morning. I went to grab the car keys, took a quick peek at the clock and I don't have to leave for another half an hour! When this happens I have to run a mental check list to make sure that I have not forgotten something.

1. Lunch made - check
2. Thermos filled - check
3. Brushed teeth - check
4. Remembered to put on deodorant - check
5. Cloths on right side out - check
6. Wearing a bra - check

Well there you have it! Rats! That extra half an hour would have felt like heaven. Zzzzzzzzz How has your morning gone? If you are in a hurry you may want to do a run through of the list! You do want to start the day out right. I know that when I don't, I might as well write the rest of the day off.

Have a nice day! Ahem...I am just preparing my happy voice. I must smile when I say "How may I help You?" all day long and over and over when what I would love to say is "You expect me to be cheerful? I could have slept another half an hour this morning!"

Sometimes I wonder about myself. Where in the world do I keep coming up with such deep blog material? Informative, controversial and thought provoking, I aim to please.

Oh...Susan! Everybody else can quit reading cause this is for Susan Why are those fantastic pictures of the sunflowers not up on your blog yet? I think sunflowers that grew to 11 feet are definitive blog material! I wish I would have remembered to bring my camera!

Yeah, so yesterday...I got up and showered and got ready to go to my food handler's class in order to start my new part-time job today. I was sure it was at nine. I headed out and got there the half-hour early that you need to be in order to actually get into the auditorium and attend the class. There was no line. I was a bit surprised, but wandered down the hall to the auditorium, which was empty except for two people.
Yeah, whatever!
All that for nothing.
The class is at six in the evening on Thursdays. It is at nine in the morning on Mondays and Fridays.
I could have been home sleeping.
Was there something in the air yesterday?

Oh, never mind. I see your error was today, Friday.
Whatever! haha

@ invisible mo: I hate that when that happens. I have gone to work on my day off. Worse yet: is that seeing how I showed up they would beg me to stay cause they are short and then I end up loosing a day off. I spell that L-O-O-S-E-R!

I don't think that I have EVER gotten to work early. But, then, I had to get up at 4:30AM and I wasn't about to get up a minute sooner. I would hate it when I wake up at 4:15 to pee. I still had to lay back down for those last few minutes. I am so glad I don't have to do that anymore.

I love this blog. I have done the same thing some mornings. I do some of these checks on the way to work. Scarrrry! Especially the false teeth check. I have had to run back into the house to get my glasses.

Regarding the sunflower pictures. I have been trying to load them all week. i was borrowing Cindi's computer but it went home. My pictures are on there. I also don't have a cord to unload them from my camera onto this computer right now. I am off all this week so I will be working at updating my blog along with about 100 other tasks. The videos of Emily are on Facebook.

Whenever I find I need to ask myself if my clothes are on correctly and I'm wearing all the proper undergarments...I also need to check that I'm wearing matching shoes! hahaha!

Been there, done that... slippers even.

Oh man, I could have used that extra half hour today, too.

I remember that happy voice and smile. Drove me nuts having to wear it at work sometimes.
