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.
