These days, I found that I have to literally pick myself up in the morning. Cuddling under the duvet with the husband is more appealing than the thought of embracing the massive traffic jam and congested roads, the workload and unnecessary troubles at the office that I have to face everyday. So whenever the morning alarm rings dutifully at 6.15 am, in my mind I'd wish;
to call in sick or take a half-day leave
no traffic jam so that I can speed my way to the office within 30 minutes instead of the usual 11/2 hour drive.
