Day 2665 – 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.
