This blooming tree outside of Target was too pretty to resist...
Mondays are always a drag, right? I did not want to get up, get dressed and go on Monday. I briefly contemplated calling in with the "Monday virus", but did not. I sometimes get this urge, but 99.5% of the time I go anyway, probably like many of you. Tuesday was the same, and I considered calling in again, with more intent. But again, I got up and went to work. It's not so much the workplace, it's just I have been so tired lately. And, it was good that I did, as one of my younger co-workers said she would be late, came in for 30 minutes, then went home for the rest of the day not feeling well.
I suppose I should back up a bit. Last week, I was distracted and just not myself. I had actually looked at a credit card sales slip and asked *Jenny "who's signature is that", and immediately realized that its a sales slip. Not sure I've ever felt so ...... discombobulated. And I had been transposing numbers so often that the OM said "maybe you shouldn't be the one to add the deposit slip today", and even though she was only half kidding, I agreed. This week has been no better. So, on Tuesday I put in for the day off today, Thursday. I told her that I know it's short notice, but I feel in need of a "minute", and she approved the day off. Thank god.
I think it's just the accumulation of so much happening here, what with the work up to helping #2 son to move to Austin. I guess it stressed me out more than I thought. And I suppose I should admit that I'm not 25 anymore, even though I hate the idea that age will slow me down ~ ha ha, that's just insane, right? Of course it will, but I'm ususally fighting the idea. Almost as though fighting it will prevent it from happening. Again, insane.
However, I am off today, and as it's our long weekend, I don't have to go back to work until Tuesday. Hopefully by then I will be back to my "normal" self.
In the meantime, it's great to be off today.....Sioux (the dog) and I will be going for a walk soon, while the air is still cool.
