A Random Thoughts Blog Post
Greetings and happy Friday everyone. I am feeling bleh today. Perhaps I put in too many hours. Maybe I didn’t eat right. Maybe it’s my forty-something hormones. Maybe it’s the frequent bouts of weird insomnia.
Or all of the above!
I came home sick today from work… less than two hours early but still… in the nine months there I haven’t used any sick time because it’s just not something I do.
The morning started with my getting to work early with no reason why other than I finished everything at home.
The bitter cold was a harsh reality to my system.
And then, no lie, I step into the bathroom at work and I realize I never combed my hair!
Then my new work colleague brought in doughnuts from Wegmans because someone else more or less playfully hazed her into doing it. So even though I packed this “matcha quark” for breakfast and these weird but oh-my-god delicious nuts/trail mix for lunch, I ate a giant cinnamon roll with icing.
That didn’t quite agree with me.
All day the computers at work were acting wonky, my noon appointment stood me up, and at 1:30 I was asked by our executive director to please reprogram the phones as our director of facilities (the one who led to the donut incident) was in a meeting in another building and the phones were down.
The telephone representative called me on my cell and walked me through reprogramming our telephone system, which I did successfully. But then I still couldn’t get any computer to work.
By 2 pm I gave up, exhausted, achy, still fluttery in my stomach and unable to focus I went home and crawled in bed. Watched some Kitchen Nightmares and cuddled a bird while I drifted in and out of consciousness.
And I saw Nala’s first temper tantrum.
Because she wasn’t the center of attention.
