Quote of the day

From Cali and Jodi:

“In our world, we talk about socially acceptable excuses and socially unacceptable excuses. Socially acceptable excuses are the kinds that the article lists as the most common: traffic, getting the kids ready, etc. Socially unacceptable excuses would be something like “drank too much last night and needed to sleep it off” or “the thought of coming in and doing this soul-stealing job had me nailed to the mattress as I hit the snooze bar repeatedly until the fear of getting fired motivated me to get out of bed.”

This is pretty much the exact reason that I will be starting a new job a week from Monday.

    Good luck in your new job – and may you WANT to get out of bed to tackle your day and your work, rather than FORCING yourself to start the day.
