Holy shiz. That is all I have to say. I don’t think I breathed, blinked or ate until I returned from work Monday night. I usually love Mondays at work, a little more low key, only work 9-5, staff meeting… but this Monday blew me out of the water. I was go go go and felt like a chicken with my head cut off. I am beat.
So let’s begin, shall we?
I would trade… the grumpy end of my day for the smiling start. I seriously woke up this morning with the biggest grin on my face. For some reason I woke up almost an hour earlier than usual just because I felt rested. I had an amazing earlier run despite it being dark for nearly the whole time. Covering 9.3 miles just bopping along. Then Monday hit, my work load tripled, just something I was not expecting at all. When you are thrown for a loop, it never ends well. Smiling Alex turned into the stress monster.
I would trade… boring eats for some restaurant grub. I have been in the worst food rut mostly because of budget reasons but I am just craving some delicious food. Yes, I can roast vegetables and boil an egg but I seriously craving some yummy eats.
I would trade… doing laundry for laundry at home. I still feel like I am college because I have to pay for laundry in my apartment building. Yuck. In all seriousness, I hadn’t done laundry in over three weeks (eek!) so I knew it had to be done tonight before my mom came Friday. And I will be honest, I don’t have enough clothes to not wash them in three weeks aka I re-wore things way too often. I just admitted that, low life moment right there.
I would trade… a new time sucker for a more productive Alex. I won’t lie, I felt the need to check out a blog trend. Downtown Abbey. I may or may not have watched five episodes Saturday and Sunday night in total. I may or may not love this show now.
I would trade… my lingering tooth pain for a quick fix. So I have yet to go back to the dentist about my second root canal or crown I need. Whoops. I just have seriously lacked time but I am paying the price because my teeth kill, not a good sign. Everything hurts when I chew on that side, even when I don’t. I know it is impacting my sleeping because I wake up in pounding pain (I grind my teeth A LOT when I sleep so it aggravates it). Gosh, I need to figure this out or I will have no teeth yet. But no time!!! Gah.
I am pooped. Having something to work for aka my mom coming makes it all seem ok though. Go tackle your Tuesday!
Questions: What would you trade this Tuesday? What really frazzles your day?
