One Fine Monday

6.15AM:   The alarm goes off and like a well trained robot, I shut that sucker down. It’s my mandatory snooze.
6.30AM:  here we go again, I’m going to have to wake up, because I know if I don’t, then it’ll be the awful chain reaction whereby I’m stuck on a rush hour train with the high school kids and I’ll hate my life.
6.45AM:   I’m still in bed playing out the god awful scenario in my head, my head knows I should move but my body refuses.

6.50AM:  I jump out. I think to myself about one of my best girlfriends, I’m sure that chick has already completed a  full workout and downed a veggie smoothie and I’m still dragging. 
7.15AM:  with the basics of showering, brushing and face scrubbing out the way, it’s time to get presentable. The quickie moisturizing routine could be better but I’m just going to be using it till I finish the bottles. I turn the TV to some morning show- I used to swear by Pat on NY1 but since we decided to cancel Time Warner Cable that’s no more.

7.25AM:  I’ve been staring at my hair for 10 minutes now, what the heck am I gonna do with this mess today.
7.30AM:  Crap it’s snowing, I’m tired of boots and socks and these boots don’t go with these pants and if I wear the tights- it would look odd and I have that meeting so I should probably wear a suit…

7.45AM:  somehow I figured it all out, Snag a kiss from the hubby who I’m sure has only had to ask himself one question this morning while I have been though 99. And I’m out the door.
7.45 – 8.30AM: the commute and train thoughts. She looks nice, he put that together nicely, step away from my personal space, are we seriously stalled, AGAIN? This chick right here needs to stop yelling, I should get a work bag just like that, much more professional than the one I have… Almost at office, I should check insta before I get to work.
8.30AM: Office arrival. My favorite time at office cos it tends to be the most productive. This is before the noise and chaos. I go down my daily To-Do list, check my emails, make sure all inquiries replied to, listen to voicemail and then time to figure out if I’ll be good (fruit and yogurt) or bad (Sausage, egg and cheese on a bagel). So many decisions…
       ———- and that’s just the first 2 hours of the day —————-

Check back in next time for a tiny chunk of a day in my life.

    This post has brought to my attention that I really need to get my act together…I do not have nearly as many things in my life to do (& you manage to look FLAWLESS *beyonce voice*) and still find time to manage a fantastic blog. This post has given me the swift kick I needed.

    I used to work at the Gap years ago… I recognized those jeans right away! 🙂 Love the whole thing! Your train thoughts remind me of the way my mind used to work during my morning commutes. It made for some funny Facebook commentary lol. Thx for sharing.

    7:30 is so accurate! Cold weather makes dressing for work so stressful. Loved this!

    I love this look! Wide leg jeans are very flattering on you. I love how you gave us a rundown of your morning; it's funny to realize there are millions of other women who have mornings just as, and even more hectic than my own!
