When I woke up this morning I took a shower & I changed into the clothes I wanted to wear. I sat down at the table for a bite to eat which is a little strange because we don’t usually have breakfast around my house. I had a bagel with cream cheese & a bowl of cereal. I also enjoyed a nice tall glass of orange juice. It was really good & I remember thinking that I should eat breakfast more often. After I finished I put the dishes on the side of the sink so I could take care of them at a convenient time. It was a busy day so I had to get ready to go out. I do like to stay current so I turned on the TV to the local news while I put myself together for the day. I brushed my teeth & my hair. By this time my dogs were all over me. They enjoy playing with me first thing in the morning. I try to take them for a walk in the morning because it seems to start my day off right. They enjoy it even though I never really have a lot of time that early. Once the dogs are walked & I have made sure they have water for the day, I am ready to leave for work.
I don’t know about you but it is a little bit of a commute to my office from home. I have to drive all the way across town it takes me 35 – 45 minutes depending on the traffic. Sometimes it can take longer if there is construction or, god forbid, an accident. I also like to stop on the way in to the office to get some coffee. I know a lot of people like to start their day off with coffee like I do but I usually have mine cold. I like a mocha iced coffee myself & I recommend you try one if you have not already had one. After getting my coffee it is onto the freeway for an adventure full of merging lanes & donging traffic. It seems to me like no one knows how to drive right anymore. Does anyone else agree? I seem to see people every time I get on the freeway talking, or worse yet, texting while they drive. This is crazy people! Put your phones down! When I make it through that mess & finally get to work I am always very thankful.
After a long day of work I am always happy to be getting off. I enjoy my job but it is stressful to say the least. I always look forward to quitting time even though I have rush hour traffic to deal with. It seems like I spend way to much time in the car.
