A mind numbingly detailed account of my Monday. Enjoy. When I recover from the experience maybe I'll share more eye doctor details. *shudder*
7:54 - Arrive at desk, WITH ice water and breakfast already in hand. Feel extremely organized and superior for arriving at desk prior to 8 a.m. Excellent start. Clearly going to be a very productive day. Begin furiously working right away.
8:20 - Still furiously working. SO proud of myself.
8:34 - Abruptly starving. Devour chocolate covered granola bar. Get slightly distracted thinking about how fantastic it is that there is a breakfast item out that there is both "healthy" and "chocolate covered". Should have packed two, clearly.
8:57 - It's bad that I'm already hungry again, huh? Rummage through purse for possible second chocolate covered granola bar. No dice. Damn.
9:21 - Break down and (stealthily) eat mini Kit Kat. Tell myself it's ok because it's little.
9:45 - I am in serious need of static spray for my hair. Omg.
10:10 - I wonder if anyone will get me books for Christmas. I really want to try Jen Lancaster. It's ridiculous that I read her blog every day but I've never read any of her books.
10:12 - I really need to get a move on and write MY book. I want my book to be on someone's Christmas list. I want to see it on a shelf at Barnes and Noble.
10:14 - Nostalgic daydream about book covers and book tours and damn, I wish I could go work on the book RIGHT NOW.
10:15 - Right. Paycheck. Focus. Back to work.
10:30 - OMG starving, how is it possible that lunch is so far away?! Somehow resist additional Kit Kats.
11:15 - Along with static spray, could really use sweater defuzzer thingy for all the annoying little balls of fuzz all over this sweater, and at least 50% of the rest of the sweaters in my closet.
11:56 - LUNCH. Thank the lord.
12:42 - Still hungry. Green apple that I packed this morning, or fresh baked chocolate chip cookies from downstairs? You decide.
1:33 - Suddenly remember that I am leaving early today! Even the fact that it's to go back to the eye doctor AGAIN can't quench my joy.
2:55 - Still frantically answering my voicemails even though I was supposed to leave ten minutes ago. Shit.
3:15 - Eye doctor comes at me out of left field and FLIPS MY EYELID. To accurately portray my horror of eyelid flipping, I will say only: I really needed to know about that little procedure ahead of time, because I would have taken a shitload of tranquilizers before my appointment. Instead, my eye doctor got to witness a lovely little anxiety attack and wait patiently while I recoiled in horror at the last second on 3 separate attempts before finally gritting my teeth and somehow forcing myself to sit still for him to ohmygodIcan'tevensayitdon'tmakeme.
3:45 - Still traumatized by eye thingy that I don't want to think about. Decide to be an awesome girlfriend and give Nick a head start on the million loads of laundry he's supposed to be doing tonight. I'll just do a load or two to get him started.
5:45 - Load 7 goes into the washer. Would throw another 3 loads in but frustratingly, we are out of quarters. Dammit.
6:17 - Wish Nick would come home from work so I can tell him about the horror that was the eye doctor's today.
6:18 - Also wish we had more quarters so I could get even one or two more loads in.
6:20 - Oooooh, sometimes Nick leaves change in his pockets! Run and check.
6:22 - Oh yeah - I already washed all the pants. And used the quarters I found in them. Damn.
6:30 - Time to start dinner and THEN it's Monday night TV and scrapbooking!
