Top 10 reasons I can’t get out of the house on time to get to work.

I am not a morning person so my morning routine has to be spot on with no deviations or unexpected happenings.

Starting with number ten ..

10) Had to take the garbage out because my son didn’t do it before HE left for work.

9) The clock in the kitchen was wrong so I thought I had enough time to check my email before leaving.

8) Had to clean up cat puke.

7) I thought the pants I was going to wear, fit. They didn't. I had to start over at the closet.

6) Three blocks away I realized I had forgotten my tea, had to go back and get it.

5) Got up late and my son was already in the bathroom. We have one bathroom, I had to wait my turn.

4) Had to find where the bad smell was coming from.

3) Realized I had not made my lunch the night before. Had to make it.

2) More cat puke to clean up.

And the number one reason I cannot get out of the house on time to get to work ....

1) It takes twice as long to get dressed and it’s next to impossible to put a bra on during a hot flash!

Very funny! My list includes hanging the washing out, watering my hanging flower pots because I forgot the evening before and being too engrossed in the daily paper.

Pearl - my routine does not leave time for anything like reading the paper - I'm amazed that people have time to do that before work!

Diane - I forgot all about winter!!

It usually takes me two or three tries to finally get completely out of the house each morning.

My reason is...I am already thinking about my work day before I even leave the house, so I usually forget something. I hate that. I think enough about work at work. :)

Since I'm retired, I don't have that problem but it is amazing how soon noon gets here.
