I’m 10-15 minutes late every day. I use the excuse that I take the mail to the post office after work which is uncompensated travel time. I am always late and have been teased for it my whole life. Even though I hit the door working instead of standing around gossiping for 15 minutes, I hate being late!

I use alarms on my phone, 5:30, 6:30 I turn those off. 7:00…begin to stir… and 7:30 I finally get out of bed.

I would like to get up at 5:30 like I did when I smoked. Nicotine cravings will wake you up!

I’ve got to do better too!
