On the Bright Side

Yesterday was the Monday-est Monday I've had in a long time. It was one of those days where you're pretty sure it's doomed right from the get-go. The morning started with oversleeping... never a good way to start your week, right? I actually overslept by so much I considered texting my boss to let him know I wasn't coming in, or was going to take a half-day or something. Fortunately, I pulled it together long enough to hop (more like roll) out of bed, get dressed in something semi-presentable and get going. Ugh, Monday.

And boy, was it a good thing I got going! Now I'm never late, but on my rushed drive into downtown, I remembered that today was actually the day I was supposed to get into work early for something. Yikes. It's bad enough to come in late, but on a Monday where you'd committed to being there earlier than normal? Yeah, terrible employee over here! Of course once I get to work "my" parking spot is gone but should I be surprised at this point? Nope, it's Monday.

I rush into the building as quickly as I can and hop (more like waddle) into the elevator. Push the button for my floor. Nothing. Push it again. Push it more frantically. The elevator is doing NOTHING. Really?? Today of all days has to be the day I now get to walk up 2.5 flights of stairs. Oh, and I'm 36 weeks pregnant as of today- in case that slipped anyone's mind. Monday, you are slowly killing me.

I huffed and puffed my way upstairs with my work bag and ginormous water bottle. I'm going to openly admit that yes, I did have to stop to catch my breath- more than once. My Fitbit practically exploded trying to measure my heart rate. Eventually I made it to the top, sweaty hairline and all, and collapsed into my desk chair. Approximately 30 seconds later my boss was in the doorway with urgent work for me and the day just rolled on from there. Monday-est Monday ever.

Other "highlights" of the day? 
- Forgetting my lunch on the counter at home. 
- Realizing my library books were due that day- and I'm NEVER late to return library books.
- Happily taking all my coupons to Kroger for a big grocery trip to discover they expired the previous day.
- Heartburn from absolutely nothing that comes and goes all day.

On the bright side... at least it's Tuesday now and nothing can go wrong. Right?!
This post is completely written in fun. I know things aren't that bad!! ;)

  2. OH man that's rough! On the plus side, today is a new day and it's bound to be better! Happy 36 weeks :) Also, if it makes you feel better, I was the maid of honor in a wedding across the country when I was 36 weeks pregnant. It was rough!

  7. Your complaining is just the right amount of brutally honest and hilarious. Thank you for sharing. I had a day just like this last Thursday. You win some, you lose some.

  9. When it rains, it pours right? That sounds like the worst Monday ever, and I feel like it was probably 10 times worse because it was a Monday! Hopefully today will go a lot smoother!

  12. On the very rare occasion I have a late library book I chalk my late fee up to a donation to buy more books for me to borrow. :)

    Hope your Tuesday is much improved.

  13. Bless it! So sorry you had a rough day!! Hoping the rest of your week turns around ASAP! Our elevator quit working last week at work, and we are on the 7th...took me a little bit to get up to our floor lol and of course by time I made it up to our floor people were getting off of the elevator because maintenance was there to fix them!!!!!

  14. Ok - your Monday takes the CAKE over mine! I've been late to work before, and it also happened to fall on a day that I'd scheduled an early meeting as well. I couldn't explain "I'M NEVER LATE!" enough times. But as my mom says - at least there's only one Monday in the week - it can only go uphill from there right? Hope your Tuesday is much better than your Monday :-)

  15. I think that each person is granted so many "MONDAY Mondays" in life, so that means you just used up another one :P

  16. Ha! I sort of started yesterday in a similar fashion...actually forgot I was to report for jury duty until it was 10 a.m. and I was like WHOOPS. LOLOL I called and was excused.

  19. Good grief! That sounds terrible. No shame in huffing and puffing at 36 weeks. Girl, you do what you gotta do.

  20. Girl I feel you on the Mondayest Monday yesterday! Yesterday I tucked my skirt into my panties and walked around the office like that. SO EMBARRASSING!!!

  21. I sometimes think Monday's have a personal agenda against me - sounds like it was after you yesterday! Sheesh!!! I hope the rest of this week is better for you! ;)

  23. Oh my, that is a horrible Monday! I really hope that today was better for you, girlie.

  24. Ha! Dude. I hear you. That was yesterday for me. I hope today is better for you! Using the stairs while pregnant is the worst. The bathroom was at the furthest point possible from my desk at work, and after waddling my way over, it was sometimes closed for cleaning, so I would have to go downstairs and wait in line for that one, then walk back upstairs and across the building to my desk. I think I nearly cried every time.
