How to not turn into the running-late-monster

There are two things that make me sooooo much less of a nice human. One is having to repeat myself. MUCH, much worse though is when I'm running late. It is not a pretty picture. It is behaviour unbecoming. I'm not proud of how it changes me as a mom, as a wife, even as a driver on the road. Knowing that it's like the Mr. Hyde juice to my Dr. Jekyll, the Hulk serum to my Bruce Banner, I've made some modifications in our lives so I can stay away from the dark side.
