I woke up this morning on my own. My bedroom was filled with light and I lazily looked at my cell phone/alarm clock.
I blinked a couple of times and looked again.
It couldn't be! I had set my alarm for 6:20am. I was supposed to be at the University Mall Parking Lot at 7:30am. I jumped out of bed, pulled on some clothes from my floor, brushed my teeth, grabbed my make-up bag, conference bag and slipped on my shoes as I ran out the door.
I drove as quickly as I dared and pulled into my parking space at... 7:36am.
NINE MINUTES from pillow to parking lot. Nine.
I brushed my hair as the last carpooler came into view. And then we were off. My make-up was done before we hit the freeway and 45 minutes later I was in the Salt Palace in Salt Lake City listening to some boring presentation about ELL, DIBELS and IEPs.
Nine minutes! I'm speedy. Really speedy.
