This morning I set my alarm for 6am and was up by 5:25am thanks to my puppy who informed me that he needed to go out. If you’ve ever had a puppy you know the “informing” comes in the way of whining, yelping and full out barking.
After letting him out, feeding him and then finally giving in and walking him or risk him waking up the entire house with his playfulness I put on make-up, “styled” my hair (aka: pulled it back into a ponytail I actually brushed!) then put on spanx, nylons and a dress.
I also inhaled 2 full mugs of coffee before heading out the door for work and leaving the kids, the puppy and the nanny at home.
Just like that, Christmas is over and I’m back at my desk paying $125+ a day in child care until school starts up again next week.
Thank goodness for coffee.
Happy 2013 y’all. Now get back to work!
