Top Down, Not

To combat my recent bout of sloth - okay, it's more of an ongoing thing - I've been setting my alarm clock. It's a drastic measure but sooner or later - hopefully, later - I'm going to have to get into a real work routine*. For some reason that seemed perfectly logical last night I didn't set it. As a result, I slept until 7:45 this morning.

Work starts at 8:30 - although I usually don't skid in until 9 or 9:30. (See above.) I fought back with laziness: I didn't wash my hair and didn't apply makeup. Got to work more or less early (before 9) with pillow marks still on my face, eyes still puffy from sleep.

Had to temper my exuberance by blogging. It's about 9:30 now so we're more or less even.

But, in my excited state, I didn't notice that the sun was out until I was halfway to work. I've been so busy building an ark that I didnt' fully realize that there wasn't a cloud in the sky. It was only 41 degrees but if I had been more caffeinated when I left the house, I would have taken my convertible to work and dropped the top.

I just checked - I'm wearing matching socks so at least I can say I'm conscious.

I better get to work because I'm taking the afternoon off for some planned goofing off. (Spa services. Totally necessary, imo.) I can probably work a nap into that scenario while I'm at it.

Good thing I slept in. It looks like it's going to be a busy day.

*For those of you new to ChoChiMi, my paying job is as an accountant. During tax season, my posts are short and grumpy. Correction, grumpier.
