Wednesday is "Morning Routine" Day.

Morning Routine: a regimen that a person uses when getting ready for the day. Some are more complex than others.

I have a very complex morning routine.

I am definitely Type "A" when it comes to getting ready as I am Type "A" in most areas of my life. If there is any kink in this routine, it makes for a catastrophe.

I usually have my outfit picked out the night before in my head, but I do know where my clothes are. This morning was no exception.

I turn the water on, use the restroom while the water warms up. I check my tweets that I got during the night, check my email and sometimes my blog.

I get into the shower. I shampoo. I rinse. I put in the conditioner. I wash my body. I rinse my body. I wash my face. I rinse my face and rinse the conditioner. I put on my head towel and then I put on my robe.

I brush my teeth and check on Paisley and Brandon who are usually still in bed. I spit and brush out my hair. I put on undies and a bra. I also put on deodorant because I hate to sweat while I blow-dry my hair.

I blow dry my hair and clip up two sections of my hair to be flat-ironed last. I flat-iron the hair that is down and then put on my clothes.

Today I wore long capris, a white peasant top with a white tank top from Old Navy. (By the way I think that no girl can have too many Old Navy tank tops.) I put my clothes on while Brandon was watching Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone.

I go back in and finished the sections of my hair that were clipped up, make a sandwich and head out the door.

I put my make-up on at work.

Now this is fine and dandy and I'm sure you're wondering why I just told you my full routine. I mean really, after all who cares.

Well, remember the part about having a kink in my routine.

Yeah, well, this morning I was pleasantly surprised to find that I had a white tank top clean. I thought I was going to have to go with a blue or pink underneath the shirt.

I happily grabbed my white tank, put it on and then put on my white peasant top.

And I finished my hair and headed out the door.

When I looked in the rearview mirror before I backed out I was particularly pleased with myself about my whole look for the day.

In fact, it put a little pep in my step. I knew today at work was going to be hectic and yes, there were some rude people, but there always are. They weren't going to get to me.

And then I went to the bathroom.

I did my business and then was washing my hands when I looked in the mirror...AND SAW MY BLUE WITH WHITE POLKA DOTTED BRA THROUGH MY WHITE SHIRTS!!!

I wanted to crawl in a hole and die.

See, I told you!!

One little kink = TOTAL. CATASTROPHE.

And I still had a half a day of work ahead of me.

It figures.

Happy Wednesday!

P.S. I'm going to talk about this week's RHONJ on Friday!!! Just a heads up y'all!
