Late Night :: Early Morning Fake Out

On 19, Mar 2013 | No Comments | In Musings | By Lindsey

This morning was rough.

Wait, I can’t really say this morning because it all went down at 9:30 pm.

I’d been asleep since 8:30 pm only an hour before.

I woke up. It hurt. My eyes were burning & my mind was confused.

BUT that’s what I’m paid to do now. Wake up when I normally would go to bed and do it day after day WITH a smile on my face because there are MANY people who would love my job, which, I should add, I VERY much do.  I only discuss the pain to explain why waking up with a bit of burn and a foggy head felt normal.

I did the dark hallway shuffle to my bathroom. Turned the water on. Undressed. Took care of some personal business while I waited for the water to get hot and took a second to think. As my mind wondered I got a little scared because I didn’t actually remember my crazy loud alarm going off.

I feel a bit of panic. Having already forgotten the time I looked at my phone to check it. Imagine my shock it said, 9:30. OMG I’d overslept. I’d missed the whole freaking morning newscast! Nightmare……….


I looked out my window and realized it was still dark. I know for a fact the sun is coming up right now around 7:10 am.

I turned the shower off. Put my pajamas back on.

Didn’t cuss myself. Just said thank you for the four more hours of sleep I was about to get.

I drove to work this morning giggling.

This was my morning drive song.
