8:45 am, Frederick, MD.
Late for most people, but I'm lucky and work later.. still, I manage to look surprised every day when my alarm goes off. Almost as if I'm not expecting it.
As usual, my hair turns into an abstract art sculpture during the night, even though it is flatironed to death during the day.
I went to bed around 12:30, did some crosswords, and caught up on any news I may have missed during the day before crashing at about 1:00. That's actually early for me - I normally go to sleep at 2:00.
In the morning, I really take my time by lazing around, drinking coffee and watching tv. So my morning routine takes about 2 hours - I shower, drink coffee. Makeup, watch a little tv. Dry hair, pack lunch. If I had to, I could be shower to door in 30 minutes.
