blog challenge – bullet points
Hope all of you had a great weekend.
I always find Monday to be particularly hard because I’m never quite ready to let go of my weekends. So, I thought I’d write about something easy for today’s blog challenge entry: my day, so far.
Mondays are actually, usually, pretty easy days for me. Except for the mountain of email that inevitably piles up over the weekend. It’s the one work day where I have complete control. No meetings, ever, because I hate Monday meetings. 🙂
Lately, I’ve been trying to use Mondays as a scheduling/sourcing day–a day to strategize the week…unless I’m really under the gun. Today was unusual because the roomie is actually in town, for once, and I had a morning full of medical appointments. So here’s a snapshot of my day so far.
6:20 am – Wake up. (Earlier than normal). Stumble into boxes. Almost knock over water dish. Run into trash can. Turn on the wrong lights.
6:22 am – Grab cat bowls. Balance them and make my way to the bathroom.
6:22-6:30 am – Wash out bowls. Try not to get dried fishies on me. Talk to kitties. Try not to wake up roomie. Put food in bowl and manage the feeding frenzy.
6:30-6:45 am Quick bath. I did not wash my hair.
6:45 am – 7:00 am – Get dressed, brush teeth, put on makeup. Try not to look homeless.
7:00 am – Login to work. Grimace at emails. Pray no one pings me because GAWD.
7:00 am – 8:00 am – Send roomie medical info on Fogg’s problems. Give him car keys and etc. Comfort Fogg and stuff her in the carrier. Say bye.
8:00 am – Fogg off to vet.
8:00 am – Get through email mountain.
9:30 am – Run to car. Dial in to kickoff call for major project.
9:35 am – Roomie grabs Starbucks while I am on call. Make our way over to Highlands.
10:00 am – Call ends. Continue traversing horrifying road construction. Thanks, New Denver. *eyeroll*
10:00-10:20 am – Circle block repeatedly trying to find parking. Leave roomie to park in alley and then move car.
10:30 am – Check in at Dr’s office. Update insurance. Play with doctor’s little boy. (We made a house). Watch TV (corpse flower, ftw). Talk to dr’s mom (the receptionist). Talk to patient with appointment before mine.
10:55 am – Dr’s early. Takes me back. We talk cute glasses and dresses. Lung check, BP/HR check, questions about many things. I’ve lost weight. I feel good. Life is grand. Lab slips. Hug goodbye.
11:20 am – Take photos of flowers. Squint in sun.
11:22 am – Leave Highlands for Quest.
