One Of Those Days
I knew it was going to be one of those days when I woke up at 1:00 AM and couldn't go back to sleep. I tossed and turned, and may have dozed a bit, but true sleep escaped me. Along about 2:25, Rylea started groaning. I told her to hush, it wasn't time to get up yet, but she kept moaning until it was time to get up.
At 2:45, the alarm went off. I got up and let the dogs out. Then I let them back in, whereupon Rylea promptly threw up on the living room floor. Oh, boy. What a way to start my day. I'm telling you, I seriously considered calling in and just going back to bed, but I didn't. Overtime, plus attendance bonus at stake, you know.
I finish getting ready, get in the car, and start driving to work. About half way there, I realized I'd left my breakfast in the microwave. Dang. I seriously thought about turning around and going back home, but thought to myself, "That would make that one very expensive sausage biscuit", and kept on going.
I spent the morning walking around brain dead and hungry. I was like my own personal episode of The Walking Dead. I felt a little better after lunch --oh, I had eaten a cereal bar after I got to work, but it wasn't like having a full meal -- and made it through the work day.
When I got home, Cody was there. He and his friend Chad were going to get his bed and take it down to his new apartment. That means I won't be able to pile the clean laundry on it. I'll have to fold it and put it away, now. At least until I get a new bed for that room. Then I can go back to piling laundry. You know, instead of folding it.
The best part about today is that it was raining when I got off work. OK, it had mostly stopped by then, but I'm still using that as an excuse not to mow.
Today, any excuse will do. I'm just too tired.
