Usually my morning regiment is like a fire drill. I wake up, drop clothes and roll in the shower and run out of the house. It takes about 25 minutes for me to get up and out the door. I call it my own personal slimming program. I don't eat breakfast, I run to the office and hit the keyboard. Lately, however it has been close to impossible to drop, roll and run.
My brain has literally stood still for the better part of the month. I am running on fatigue and nothing else. I take 5 minutes to roll out of bed, 15 minutes arranging my various soaps and beauty things along the shower, 5 minutes checking the temperature and then still scrub twice coz I'm not too sure my tired hands did the job the first time. Then it'll take me 10minutes for my foggy mind to register that not all the clothes in my wardrobe are a dull grey colour and 5 minutes staring at them just to make sure I don't wear them inside out. Then since I am forgetting to do everything, I have to drag myself up and down the stairs 12-20 times to get my watch, my phone, my handbag, my belt......and as of today, my shoes and socks!
That is generally how my day is when i get really busy and don't have time to sleep, eat, breath or speak. For someone who is full of witty comebacks, it is quite frustrating to have to think for 30 minutes before shouting your comeback to a person who's already moved on to better things. So now instead of dropping, rolling and running, I am rolling out of bed, clumsily dropping all my things and quietly crawling out of the house. I guess it is still a little like a fire drill. Only now it's like am running away form a fire that's building up really, really slowly. Roll, drop and crawl.
