Oh misery of miseries. I've done it again. Waking up this morning, I removed my ear plugs and squinted at the clock to check the time, as is my custom. My near-sighted eyes saw 7 a.m., which equaled me running late. I got up and showered, all the while feeling exhausted and sick to my stomach. I put on makeup. I went back to my bedroom to get dressed. I looked at the clock. It said 3:30 a.m. I looked at my slumbering husband, who was quietly snoring. I repeated his name a few times at full volume so I could share my folly. He didn't wake up and I realized I shouldn't torture him with my mistakes. I crept back into bed. Today will be a long day.
