Late is the NEW on time

I can remember a time that I would arrive 15 - 20 minutes early then the start time of anything - work, event, meeting, etc...

NOW I don't know if it is my BFF rubbing off on me or the fact I have kids but I swear I can not make it on time ANYWHERE.

I get up earlier, I pre-pack things, put stuff in my car the night before, shower at night, lay clothes out, pack lunches, the list goes on for what I do ahead of time and it just doesn't matter - I arrive anywhere between 5 - 15 minutes LATE.

Why is that?
Does anyone else go through this?

Is lateness maybe a gender thing? a mother thing? an older thing? WHAT is it??? Can someone explain this to me??

Or maybe it is that I am TIRED 99% of the time now a days - could that be it??

Or maybe it is that I HAVE so many responsibilities now? {the time that it was me and my dog ahhh}

Or maybe it is the fact that I have to do it by myself Monday - Thursday and when Friday gets here and my hubby can help in the morning I slow down even more?


  1. I LOVE LOVE LOVE your blog. The title is what reeled me in...because I feel the same way! I just found you from the giveaway on Lauren's blog.

    I definitely understand what you mean when it comes to being late. I do the SAME thing for prep that you do, and I still am somehow late. My most recent thing that I've tried (and so far it is working) is I set all of the clocks ahead in my house. I leave the house by the time on my clock and I've been on time to things. Horray!!

    I hope you'll stop by and visit my blog! I can't wait to keep reading along with you and get to know you better!

  2. You are NOT alone! I too am ALWAYS late! I think it is just part of life. At least you have good excuses- you are indeed a busy lady.


What are your thoughts? I love to read them!
