Day 2658 – How To Get Ready For Work In 8 Minutes

Here’s how our morning was supposed to go:

6:00 a.m. – alarm goes off, snooze once
6:09 a.m. – alarm goes off, Bret gets up, Jen snoozes
6:11 a.m. – Bret makes coffee, does dishes and gets ready for day
6:16 a.m. – Jen gets up, enjoys cup of coffee, takes shower
7:15 a.m. – Bret and Jen leave for work
7:30 a.m. – Bret arrives at work
8:15 a.m. – Jen arrives at work

Here’s how our morning actually went:
6:00 a.m. – alarm goes off – no sound
6:01 a.m. – second alarm goes off – no sound
7:44 a.m. – Bret jumps out of bed and says, “WHAT TIME IS IT??” Jen looks at phone – “7:44….”
7:45 a.m. – Bret scrambles to get dressed pack his lunch, Jen gets in the shower
7:52 a.m. – Bret and Jen leave for work
9:05 a.m. – Jen arrives at work

I may have forgotten to put lotion on my face, grabbed flip flops rather than shoes and didn’t realize what was going on for a good 10-30 minutes….but we got out of the house in 8 minutes.

Here’s one of the reasons that was possible.

About 365 days of marriage

I started this blog in April of 2011. At the time, Bret and I were wedding photographers and it was a way to share how marriage is more about the day to day and so much more than the wedding day itself. For about 5 years, I blogged about the joys and sorrows of the Christian walk, marriage, work, family and friends. I’ve blogged every day since a few weeks after I started. In May of 2015, we photographed our last wedding. Now, I have become passionate about simplicity, particularly in marriage, Christianity, business, travel and life. For a number of reasons, we have become minimalists. I’ve found that having simplicity makes life so much deeper, refreshing and joyful. I hope that this blog will help others see the benefits of living simply.
