The weekend always ends too soon. As the alarm blared this morning, I stumbled out of bed, following the familiar path around the bed and out the door. Eyes half-closed I maneuvered around the cat and the piles of folded laundry, like a skier making her way down the slalom. I followed the path into the hall before making it into the bathroom, where I felt around for the light switch. While my eyes adjusted to the harsh glare of the bathroom lights I turned on the hot water.
As the bathroom filled with steam, I laid out my mornig tools. Contact lenses, contact drops, hairbrush, hair dryer, hair tie, necklace, skin moisturizer, and lotion. I quickly showered, wondering how it could possibly be Monday already.
I threw on the outfit I picked out the night before I ran through the day’s schedule in my head. Spanish for my morning class and a normal afternoon for my second class. Contract work after school. Oh, and I had to remember to pack a lunch. And I had to figure out how to introduce the Slice of Life Challenge to my class. Busy, busy. busy. But at least it was going to be warm- 56 degrees for the high!
Slipping into the silky skirt and short-sleeve top I had laid out, I sighed with the satisfaction that if nothing else, at least I could finally wear my spring clothes!
