I heard the weather was nice…
That's about the only positive thing I can say about this day. I think I’d like to request a do-over for today. On second thought, perhaps we could just arrange for today to be expunged. That way I don’t have to live through it again.
My day got off on the wrong foot right from the start. I literally got up on the wrong side of the bed when the phone rang and I got up to answer it at 6:15. It was some moron looking for a car repair shop. Hey buddy, NOTHING IS OPEN AT 6:15 am. My alarm was set to go off anyway, so I got up. The grand plan was to get up and out early so that I could get in to work early, because I knew I was going to have a crazy day. And you know how much I hate getting up early – but a look at my to-do list on Wednesday evening convinced me it was time for extreme measures. Unfortunately for me, there was terrible, hideous traffic for some reason. I ended up getting to work at about 8:50. Not quite the bright, shiny start to my day I wanted.
Then I realized I had left my pad with all my current notes and the stuff I had brought home to proofread last night sitting on my desk. So I got to proof some stuff again.
I won’t go in to the details of the rest of my day, but I’ve decided that everyone in my company needs a spring break. Everyone is stressed out and cranky and pushing way too hard. I’d say we all need a few days away from each other and all of the deadlines and projects and meetings and the endless stream of email after email after email. Too bad there isn’t some business-friendly way to do that. I like it much better when we’re not all overloaded and snapping at each other.
Oh well. At least tomorrow is Friday. And I’m expecting a nice day on Saturday. I’m getting my hair cut in the morning, and then having lunch and going shopping with my mom. A little pampering could go a long way for me right now. Do you have any exciting plans for the weekend? Also, I’m bored with my hair, so any curly hairstyle suggestions you have to offer would be greatly appreciated.
