The Morning Buster, aka, Martha, is moving right towards the finish line. I am on the last piece, a sleeve. Why buster? It’s still chilly willy when I wend my way to the bus stop. I long for the day when, standing in the morning shade, I will be rapturously wrapped in the glorious glow of this gorgeous garment.

ANYTHING to make it easier to go to work in the morning, hear, hear!! I am so lucky to have a dayside shift – over the years at the television station, I’ve worked every time frame imaginable – overnights, early morning, late night – and had ridiculous days-off combinations as well. (News never sleeps!) How I stumbled into the current assignment parameters is a happy accident and I’ll not poke that dozing Giant to find out WHY.

But LuckyYesorNO I have to bribe myself to get ready for work on any given day. This is accomplished with two cups of coffee (wake it), a generous piece of Chocolate (feed it), and coconut smelling shampoo (scent it)… GO!

I have two alarm clocks – one is set to get me out of bed. The other is set to get me out of the house so I don’t miss the Bus. Without these Little Buddies, I’d go merrily along into some kind of House Hypnosis – that state where ANYTHING is more interesting than what you’re supposed to be doing. This can be activity as mundane as working out or as tedious as sink cleaning. ANYTHING that is not *on somebody else’s clock* applies.

This is actually where House Arrest would NOT be such a big deal for me! Peapod & Leona’s already drop off the viddles. USPS delivers the goods. And, music? We’ve got it.

I can see myself in the yard, surrounded by the wrought iron fence, gardening, pizza slice in hand, pods in place – Oui!

Our frisky friend, Martha At-Home, is wasting no time and has a new line of household products in the works: “Kmart will soon launch its first new line of Martha Stewart Everyday products in three years — ready-to-assemble furniture including dining tables, beds and even a sofa.” She also is going to be on the Radio!

Hey, now there’s a REASON to go to work – get some dinero to pick up that broadcast on de Pod! Woot!

the Martha Along is hosted by the fabulous Jessica! Check out her gorgeous new FO!
