Fuck Daylight Savings Time
Seriously.. fuck it right in the ass.
Yesterday was wonderful and productive. I went for a walk in the sunshine then cleaned and did laundry all day. I knew that the time change would be an issue for me (it always is) so I was in bed by 10pm as usual.
This morning my alarm went off earlier by 20 minutes as I was feeding the grand delusion that I would go walking again before work. I failed to realize that the time change meant that is was still dark out at 6:15am so I snoozed for a bit and had nightmares about My Mr. coming home really mad at me because I had not gone walking. (He would NEVER do that, but ExH was known to belittle and harass me about such things.)
The next thing I knew it was 7:30am. My commute is only 1.5 miles but I try to leave by 7:45am just so I can get decent parking and ease into the morning. Not today. I managed to pour my coffee, pack my breakfast and make myself somewhat human looking and still got to work exactly at 8am. Yay me! Wait… My Mr. poured my coffee when he got home and saw I wasn’t up. Yay Mr!
Here’s the thing about my job- we are ALWAYS swamped on Mondays. Right now I’m sharing the work load of my job with one girl and splitting another position that was left vacant with a different girl. Both of those positions have 5 times as many things coming in on Mondays. Mondays are always crazy busy and I actually like it that way because it makes the day go by faster. The rest of the week I’m done with my primary job by 10am and often spent the rest of the day trying to look busy and hoping my boss doesn’t sneak up on me while I’m checking Facebook. I’m not complaining. Really. I DO like my job and my co-workers but it can wear on me a bit.
Today was double interesting (my favorite euphemism there) as it seems the resident mouse may have finally met his or her demise in the cubicle across from mine. There was an awful smell coming from the cubicle assaulting me whenever I had to get up to go to the printer. The guy in that cubicle has been there for years and I’m 99% certain that today is the first time he’d ever cleaned his work space. It was smelly, dusty and just plain gross and didn’t look much better when he was finished. The worst part of it all: No mouse carcass was found. Time to buy a candle for my desk.
Despite it all, I walked out of work at exactly 5pm and messaged My Mr. to ask if he still wanted me to send him the grocery list. He had planned to go shopping after work but had a busy day himself and didn’t make it home for lunch.
Right now it’s 6pm and I’ve already showered and am in my jammies. My Mr. is picking up Indian food for me and My Kiddo is doing the grocery shopping. So for all the “fuck daylight savings time” I’m still able to see past my grumpy and know how loved I am.
Tomorrow My Kiddo turns 17 so we’re taking her out to dinner. Wednesday we have tentative dinner plans with a cute boy from down south a bit. My Mr. volunteered to be hypnotized by an “Erotic Hypnotist” on Saturday, and then we may or may not hang out for the play party part of the evening. It’s stacking up to be a pretty awesome week despite the time change turning me into a cranky toddler!
At the burlesque show
- McT: ...Adam & Eve
- Someone in the audience: I'd rather Adam & Steve.
- McT: Well how about Adam, Eve AND Steve? Know your audience! *winks in our direction*
Another Aweseome Weekend
The Burlesque show on Friday included Beetlejuice, an ode to Jim Jones, a Zombie nerd girl, a Power Ranger and a couple of small kisses from McT. (Yay for kisses!) There was also a dancing Brit (the same one who wore the snazzy bow-tie and suspender get up at the Naked social party) and more than a dozen people we invited via a handful of MeetUp Groups that got us a discount on our checks for the night.
Saturday was more plotting and planning for my future as a writer/speaker/educator and lots of cuddles.
Today started with much needed a brisk walk in the sunshine followed by half-naked housework. My Mr. is napping beside me (an after effect of a smoothie BJ and a bit of cardio) and I’m finally replying to some OkC messages and possibly setting up a date with a cute boy.
Life is good!
