WHEW!

This is what I SHOULD have done right after I got to work today.
I woke up LATE it pretty much screwed up the day for me. I didn't get all crazy over it, but it caused me to go NON-STOP all day until the minute I punched out. So I forgot to set my alarm and I wake up and its LIGHT out which causes me to FLY outta bed and check the clock. Oh yea, I'm totally late. REALLY late. In my foggy stupor I hit the potty and think "Shit, what day is it?-Wednesday-my day off? nope its Thursday-yea I'm screwed." So I go into my sons' room and shake him awake and he whips the covers off and mumbles something and I ask him "What did you say?" and he says "I was hoping you weren't gonna wake up." So I think to myself - did he mean EVER wake up or was the little shit awake and hoping I would sleep late enough for him to NOT have to go to school? So anyway, he WAS awake and could have got me up, but he thought maybe he could get out of going to school if WE didn't wake up on time. NICE TRY kid. He was late too, but he did go to school.
Now, yes indeedy it was my fault for not setting my alarm. I get that. BUT-my job usually calls me if I am more than a few minutes late. This particular morning the co-worker that was there CHOSE not to call me. Fucker. He is a very vindictive person, and had a smug grin on his face when I finally got there. He probably thought I would get in a heap of trouble but this is what happened when I got to work. My boss saw me and said "Hey Queen-you made it in!" Yep he calls me queen. Sometimes he calls me the princess, and I have to correct him-"its Queen boss QUEEN." Then I show him my statue that I proudly display in my office.

I am very fortunate that I have a boss who KNOWS me and KNOWS about the vindictive person who didn't give me a courtesy call this morning. See my boss knows I am in recovery and KNOWS that I genuinely overslept this morning. Not like before I got sober and was late many times without bothering to call or explain myself-or lie to him. He has seen the positive change in me since I chose recovery and it's not the end of the world that I was late today. So all is well in my castle, now I think I'll hit a meeting. QUEEN...OUT

It must be the time of year because I just want to sleep in the morning. And I have to be up by 6 AM but lately I've been sleeping in until 6:30.

Great post. I've been sleeping like that too lately. It's a time/space continuum warp we're caught in, I think.
