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.

Day 1319 – No One Is Perfect Or I Can’t Believe No One Caught This

So, I have this board I set up at weddings. It basically says, leave your email, we’ll let you know when the pictures are online. It’s a great way to connect with the wedding guests after the wedding. It also takes one more thing off the bride and groom’s plate! I’ve had pretty good success with this!

I’ve wanted to update this board for a while, and finally sat down to do that today. I came up with a great new board! New picture, updated the text, much cleaner look! I love it! I also changed the font, from a more italic font to a more basic font. When I changed the font, I noticed something a little off…I audibly said, “SHUT UP! No way!!” Ran to check and then the laughter…oh the laughter….I laughed SO hard at my unbelievable typo! I have used this sign at 13 weddings! No one has ever noticed it…or at least, no one has ever told me about it!

What did I do? Oh, you know, just misspelled MY OWN NAME!
