Today was a hectic, crazy day. This morning before work, I decided to brew a little pot of espresso to mix with milk--sometimes I like to take it to work so I can have an iced latte in the afternoon. Well, I got the espresso machine all ready to go but I didn't remember adding the water--so I added water. I'm sure you can guess where this is going. Yep, I added water twice, so everything overflowed all over the countertop, and I had a big mess to clean up!
When I got to work, I found out that one of our secretaries had to leave for Colorado unexpectedly because of the illness of a family member. We're somewhat short staffed this week with a couple of our secretaries off on vacation. This particular secretary--the one who had to leave for Colorado--was covering another vacationing secretary's desk in addition to her own. And, because I'm one of the people who helps cover HER desk when she's out, I inherited HER boss, besides my own two. Add to that the fact that I'm going to be off next week myself with a lot to get caught up on before I go, and as you can imagine, work is nuts. I didn't leave the office tonight until 7:30 p.m., and I expect the rest of the week will likely be the same.
But at least today was donut day at work. Around mid-morning, I went into the kitchen and picked out a sugar donut. As I arrived back at my desk, I somehow bobbled the donut and it jumped out of my hand, hit the back rest of my desk chair, and landed on the seat, showering sprinkles of sugar all over the chair and the floor. It could have been worse, I suppose. At least it wasn't a jelly donut. And, more importantly, at least the donut didn't hit the floor! After I finished sweeping up, I was able to sit for a minute or two and enjoy my donut and a cup of coffee. Despite my best efforts with the broom, though, the floor crunched every time I got up from my desk for the rest of the day.
Hubby was kind enough to fix leftover spaghetti and meatballs with pasta for dinner tonight, but by the time I got home, I just didn't really feel like eating much, so I settled for a nice bowl of cereal. I know--it doesn't sound like I made very wise meal choices today, but for lunch I had a weed salad (at least that's what it tastes like--you know the kind I mean, right?) and an open faced turkey sandwich so I didn't just eat a bunch of junk.
I can't tell you how heavenly it was tonight to change into my comfy old clothes and head into the Sweat Shop for a little quilting therapy. Of course, if you're a quilter, you probably know.
I expect the rest of the work week will be about the same, minus incidents with espresso makers and donuts, but quite possibly with the addition of other dorky mishaps to fill the void. And I'm telling you this because it's possible in another day or two, I just might come home late from work and not have the energy or brain power left to write a blog post. So, if you don't hear from me one night or if I get lazy and just write a very brief "I'm still alive" post, you'll know why. And you'll feel terribly, terribly sorry for me, right? Just email me if you need my address so you can send gifts to cheer me up, okay?! LOL!
