One of those mornings...

This transitional seasons thing really got to me this morning.
First off, I so did not want to get out of bed. Sure, I could say that pretty much every morning, but I really meant it today! Needless to say, I pressed snooze a few times too many this morning

Then I didn't want to get out of the shower. Now that is an unusual thing for me. I really dislike breathing humid air, therefore I don't care to stay in the shower for an extended period of time. I usually rush through my showers in order to get out as soon as possible. This morning I just wanted the hot water to keep pouring over me and never stop. I wanted it to just wash away everything.

At this point, I was already running late, but that wasn't the end. Today was one of those days where I hate everything I own. It is May 2nd and current 46 degrees Fahrenheit where I am. Is it winter? Is it spring? Is it warm? Is it cold? In Utah, you just can never quite predict. So, how am I supposed to dress? Should I dress to keep warm? Should I break out all my new Spring clothes that I really want to wear? I couldn't decide. On top of all that, I have to keep in mind every activity that I'll be doing tonight. I left my house at 5:30am and I probably won't be back till I'm ready to sleep. I've got to make sure I'm prepared, right? To make my morning a little more behind schedule, I ended up changing my outfit about 20 different times. The funny thing is the outfit I ended up wearing is an outfit that I three times decided not to wear. Did I hang any of the discarded items back up after deciding not to wear them? Of course not, I was running late. So now my bedroom floor is littered with discarded clothing items.

By the time I got dressed it was time to leave and I had pretty much done nothing with my hair except comb product through it. My hair is naturally pretty straight and very fine so its was already mostly dry except in the back. I decided in the interest of getting out of the door quickly, I'd just straighten my fringe. If you know me, you know that I pretty much never leave the house without doing my hair or makeup. Running out to the car sure was fun, I could feel my wet hair wanting to freeze.

With a morning like this, its a wonder that I don't look like a transient off the streets.
Its a good thing I'm so paranoid about being late, my over-planning on time really paid off today. I got to practice right as the clock turned to 6:00.
No sweat.

I do the changing 20 times and ending up wearing something I tried on several times and discarded already thing ALL the time. Isn't it the worst coming home to that mess? Even if I ended up having a great time, it's so depressing coming home and seeing all the stuff I have to put away from ONE day.

Amen To all of that. My husband always knows if I have been home or not because I always have clothes scattered every where. What practice are you talking about? Was it Kearns Cheer?
