But Mom said that some days are like that …
I will start with the good news. On 11/24 I will be back on the day shift. YAY! Although right now I cannot conceive what working a “normal” schedule will be like. It’s been almost two years since I began this social experiment called “after hours”. This morning it seemd as if the forces of the Universe were combining to protest the coming changes.
I didn’t leave work this morning until 8:30 because of a meeting. I cannot even describe my feelings following that meeting!!! I will just quote Rick on last Spring’s season finale of the Walking Dead, “They’re screwing with the wrong [person]!!” On the way home I stopped by my doctor’s office to drop off some papers for the wellness incentive program at work. Then I went at the UPS Store and shipped my camera off to Olympus for repair. Maybe I can get it back by Christmas??
When I got home about 9:30 am I was quite tired so I went straight to bed. David had our heater serviced on Tuesday and this morning left me a voice mail message that before he left for work he set the temperature at 71, that should be warm enough, and if I was still cold I could get an extra blanket. It was a bit cold in the bedroom, but I figured it would be good for sleeping. Some time later I woke up freezing and my hands and nose were so cold that I imagined ice icicles must have started forming on my nose. I walked out to the living room, checked the thermostat and found that it was set to 61, NOT 71. I texted that he needed to get an eye exam and some new glasses, and who did he think I was anyway … Elsa??? The cold actually does bother me.
Went back to bed and woke up with a start. It was dark out and I was afraid that I had overslept and would be late to work, but it was only 7:15 pm. Phew!!!!!
The dogs let me know in no uncertain terms that they were hungry. I went into the kitchen only to find that there was NO DOG FOOD!!! So, I pulled on some jeans and went to the store for dog food and something for my dinner. Speaking of which, I can smell the wonderful soup simmering in the kitchen. I’m hungry!!!
… even in Australia …
