Snooze Button 

Posted on: 12/28/2012   Comments: 0   Views: 40

I've been hitting the snooze button way too often, literally and figuratively.

I'm supposed to be at work at 8am every day. For the past year, an 8am arrival is a rarity and 9am has become the norm. That needs to change.

I set my alarm for 6:30 - sometimes earlier - with every intention of getting up, spending time with my husband before he leaves for work, and doing something productive before I head out the door, but I usually end up hitting "Snooze" until about 7:30. It's ridiculous.

It goes something like this:

6:30 alarm: Mmmm. I can hit the snooze button twice before I absolutely have to get up.

6:39: One more time.

6:48: If I rush and just do eyeliner and mascara, no eyeshadow, I can wait nine more minutes.

6:57: Who am I kidding? There's no way I can be there by 8:00, even if I rush. I'll just go in at 8:30. Two more snoozes.  Mmmmmm!

7:06: One more! I should check my Facebook.

7:15: I can hit "Snooze" one more time. I'll just check CNN and the weather before I get up.

7:24: Sigh. Not even going to make it by 8:30 now. May as well hit "Snooze" one more time.

7:33: GET UP. This is RIDICULOUS.

Not an auspicious start for the day. The slacker vibe sticks around and messes with my head. It needs ta GO.
