My Job is Not Boring!

This was my day today:

  • Rush rush rush to get to work a little early for a meeting.

  • *sleepy* Why did I stay up so late reading??

  • Driving in traffic, multi-tasking as I go. Every red light frustrates me but it's a chance to put on lip gloss, or plug my phone into the charger, or read the 4 emails that just came in, or check my hair (which was a mess today), or get my laptop booted up and get it started (it takes about 5 minutes!).....

  • Sitting at last red light, look down and see that my shirt, a criss-cross across the chest area--has fully twisted and now is exposing half my upper *ahem* "area". Nice. Wonder how many drivers noticed me flashing them.

  • Can't get to the floor with elevator on the left. Must wait for the one on the right (remodeling ya know).

  • Still waiting.

  • Tapping foot....

  • Still waiting.

  • Sigh....take the stairs, carrying laptop bag, purse, keys (to access the door to exit the stairwell), phone and open laptop (which is still starting up).

  • Attend meeting.

  • *sleepy* Did I put on enough deodorant to be climbing stairs?

  • Working in temporary seating area during remodel....not too bad, nice to see everyone (though I do love working at home).

  • Christy-four chairs over-announces a mouse has entered her locked filing cabinet and eaten part of her Hershey's bar. Holds up chewed baggy. All women in room take in a deep breath and look around and question whether it's really a mouse....Jodi hollers out "CHECK FOR DROPPINGS!!!"

  • Droppings found. Mouse presence confirmed.

  • Go to lunch - take the wrong exit and end up driving 15 min longer than I should have. Sad.

  • Having the best wrap ever (which they stopped and then started again at my old work cafeteria) with my pal J-Mac, but the recipe has been changed and it's no longer the best wrap it's just a good wrap. Sad.

  • Head to the volunteer office to drop off supplies. Forget they moved their offices and get slightly turned around and frustrated-need to get back to work---back on the freeway! Sad.

  • Back at desk. Lots of work to do.

  • Someones manager brings in her puppy. Cute puppy!

  • Puppy poops on floor.

  • Hilarious.

  • Puppy owner rushed out with puppy. Poop still on floor.

  • *shocked*

  • Jodi picks up the poop. Yay Jodi!!! She's our hero (though beware the story of how she once protected the grain for her sheep with a pitchfork).

  • *still shocked*

  • Make poop jokes with coworkers for approximately 45 minutes.

  • Use the loo and return to find that a rubber band battle has started between the two sides of the room. Jeff is the culprit. Christy looks innocent but she's not -but luckily she turns bright red and laughs when you accuse her of anything.

  • Rubber bands everywhere.

  • Lots of work to do still.

  • Teenager calling 3 hrs before I get home to tell me he's hungry and when is dinner. Dinner is at 6pm almost every night of the week. Teenagers are forgetful.

  • Work work work.

  • Anxious about big meeting at work tomorrow, can't share the details....but it's no secret our country is in a recession.

  • Discuss with Tori about how small mice are okay, large rats are not. We are brave.

  • Shut down laptop - wait the required 6 minutes for it to shut down. Pack bag and head home to feed starving teenager.

***VERY close to 350 posts!!! Will be hosting my first ever give-away ever within the week! VERY excited at the amazing prizes I am going to give away so make sure to come back later!

    Dude, your life sounds so exciting! Even when you talk about things being "boring," they are totally entertaining to me. See you on Thursday- we're still on for Bingo, right?

    oh yeah-nothing is as exciting as mouse droppings and puppy poop!
    and if by bingo you mean "the night Kaylen finally wins big"-then YES we are going!

    My day is definately less exciting. But I have taken the wrong exit and gotten home late but now I just take the local roads or the pothole roads wtih asphalt every now and then.

    Mice in the workplace? That's not cool. Having them at home isn't great either, but that's my problem. You sound like a damn busy person. Please tell me you don't text message in your car.
