One of Those Days

Hi. I’m Marla. Gimme A Minute. I wanna talk to you about having one of those days. You know, the kind where you wake up in the middle of the night and can’t fall back to sleep, then you finally fall back to sleep, just as the alarm goes off.
You make a pot of coffee and you’re out of creamer. Or you have creamer, just enough for one cup, and you spill it all over the kitchen counter. And when you get to work, you realize you forgot to do something that your supervisor asked you to do last week, and you have an email in your box asking you about it.
then, shortly after you get back from lunch, you get a text message from a friend asking you if you’re on your way…to lunch….the one you planned that you forgot to put on your work calendar, but even if you did, you hadn’t looked at your calendar all morning anyway.
Then you go to your supervisor’s office for your weekly meeting, which is cancelled, and inadvertently say something stupid offhandedly, and by the time you get back to your desk, you have an email from your boss, basically calling you on it….
So you go home, and on the way call a friend looking for emotional support, and she gives you grief about something else.
Does any of this ring true for you?
The only saving grace is that it’s bedtime soon and like Scarlette said, “tomorrow is another day.”
Thanks for listening. See ya.
