You know the ones - where you have a specific plan as to how the day's going to go and five minutes in you should just rip up your agenda and sit back and enjoy the ride.
But NOOOOOOOO!! You have to fight it every step of the way - buck the current, force the square peg in the round hole even though you know intellectually that it's not going to fit, believe somewhere in your heart that you can regain the day and salvage the remaining hours! Right up to the bitter end when you sit at your desk, darkness blanketing both windows of your office, eyes barely open, brain begging just to go to bed and start fresh the next morning. Not today, friend, not today.
I had every intention of getting a good 8 hours of the Day Job crossed off the weekly hourly total. I had every intention of getting all the laundry done and the house vaccuumed. The supper was a simple casserole with all ingredients with the exception of a carrot ready to be chucked in together and thown in the oven. Everything in bullet points on the Day Planner right down to the exercise time and a shower!
Um, talk about over scheduling, but I've already shared with you my obsessive compulsive and analytical organizational
irrationalities abilities. That's who I am - and I always strive to celebrate my talents.
First up - the exercise was a bust. Oh, I exercised, but I felt as if I'd been out all night. Of course, I slept poorly - so that may have something to do with it. And my back hurt - but really, when you've been doing something for almost 2 weeks and then are sucking air so badly you have to stop! Frustrating.
Next - a bevy of phone calls from family. Victoria Day and it's time to catch up. And I will always stop what I'm doing to chat with family - but all of them? On the same day? Yikes, didn't see that coming! (*waves to family and reminds them that I love them all*)
Supper invitation and a request for a veggie dish. That means the casserole is out and I have to figure out what to do, and what I have to do it with!
Lack of sleep caught up around 3 and I sat on the couch for a quick break only to nod off! Hello? Not on my list. *sigh*
Dog decides not to eat anything all day and then throws up - while I'm napping - waking me up with awful gagging, "I'm going to throw-up" sounds. Nothing brings you out of a sound sleep like the dog getting ready to heave on your living room area rug.
Are you getting the picture. Yep, one of those days. Good thing is that today is a brand new one - and, no, I haven't scheduled my time down to the last millisecond. Some lessons don't need to be repeated more than once (or twice or...)
How was your day, People of Blogland? Am I the only one out there that schedules her day using hourly increments (please, please, please tell me I'm not)? Did you know how to do a strike out in blogger? I didn't until this post - so excited about that!!
