What a Day With No Eye Liner Gets You

Because I have jinxed myself into getting some kind of NASTY cough/throat/want to roll over and die thing, I haven't been getting the best sleep. I wake up every couple of hours coughing. Last night, I woke up in the middle of a coughing fit, and Chad had to coach me, so that I could start breathing again. It was sad. Anyway, because my sleep (which we all know I need an abnormal amount of) has been so constantly interrupted lately, getting up in the morning has been even more difficult than normal. Then, when I do get up, I can't get my body to MOVE fast enough. Even though I'm running late. Today went something like this:

6:00 a.m. - Alarm goes off. Snooze button is hit.
6:10 a.m. - Alarm goes off. Snooze button is hit.
6:20 a.m. - Alarm goes off. Again, snooze button is hit.
6:30 a.m. - Aarm goes off. Snooze button is hit. I groggily realize that I REALLY need to get up if I'm going to be ready by the time my ride comes.
6:40 a.m. - Alarm goes off AGAIN. I hit the snooze button. I lie there, trying to tell my body to leave the security of the covers, and get ready to deal with teenagers all day.
6:45 a.m. - I finally pull myself out of bed, leaving me with less than FIFTEEN mintues to get ready.
7:00 a.m. - My phone rings. My ride is here. I have no makeup on. I toss some mascara and eyeshadow in a makeup bag and jet out the door. I get ready in the car...yea...
7:20 a.m. - Arrive 5 minutes late to school.

Needless to say, I wasn't looking like a runway model today.

7:45 a.m. - Student interrupts me mid-sentence to say, "Something's different about you today, Mrs. Reese...What is it?" To which I want to respond, "MAYBE IT'S THE FACT THAT I FEEL LIKE CRAP and LOOK LIKE CRAP!" but I really respond, "I don't know..." Other students then begin to chime in, speculating about what COULD be different about my appearance today, until I finally stop the debate and force them to start learning again.

Chad, the eternal optomist, says I should be GLAD they noticed I look different when I look crappy. That means that I usually look nice, and that they notice when I don't.

I vote this horrible virus thing needs to kick the bucket, before I do!


  1. This sounded a lot like me when I was pregnant. (no I am not saying that you are) but I would get to work and everyone would be like, man Tiff you don't look good today...yeah probably because I stayed in bed until I pretty much only had time to throw up and couple of times and put some clothes on...those were not good mornings! I say you did good with getting the mascara and the eye shadow!! And I am sure you still looked HOT!!

  2. :D Sounds like you picked up that nasty little virus thing that is going all around the high schools in the state of Utah and attacking teachers! I haven't gotten it yet, but about 1/4 of the teachers in my school have! And kids just think they can say the most personal and strange things mid-lecture don't they. I enjoyed this post.

  3. Thanks for the comments on my silly little blog. Now that I know where you are...I will add you to my fiends list too.

    I sure hope that you are feeling better. Tell Chad to take good care of you.

    Tell him to make you some fudge... that always makes any day better!

    Go visit my blog again... maybe you can laugh with me ( or maybe at me!)

  4. I guess I'm glad they noticed a difference too. You do always look cute though Katie--even dressed as Beowolf.

  5. I tagged you - if you want to do it go to my blog to see what you have to do!
