I rarely do this, but I overslept this morning. I must not have even set the alarm. I got ready as quickly as I could, but taking the later train means a wait of one hour at the downtown station, so I didn't get to work until 9:30. I texted my boss, but she didn't get it, so she sent out a message to the office that I was at a board meeting (which WILL happen next week; she was confused). So when I get to work I have a scolding message from the secretary about not letting her know about my meeting. Yikes!

But I am here and all is well.

During my hour in the station, I spent $5 on breakfast at Caribou Coffee.

Things are pretty quiet, so I guess it was a good day to be late.

My lunch out yesterday turned out to be free. I was fully expecting to pay for it, but the office picked up the tab. It was only a small group of the departee's special friends, so I was surprised, but happy not to pay! And we had a very good time.

I am on track so far to be able to pay my taxes without getting into savings -- I think I will be able to cover the rugs, too, but, of course, I DON'T HAVE THEM YET! Crazy.

    I have a reoccurring dream that I wake up late in the day and I didn't call in and then I wake up before the alarm! I hate that!

    Yesterday I woke up to my alarm, but turned over and went back to sleep ... luckily I woke up 24 minutes later, and still made it (about 5 minutes late). Sometimes our bodies just force us to get that extra rest.
