Some days are Mondays - Evolved Mommy
Today was definitely a Monday. Here’s a break down (in case you have nothing better to read):
6:30 HOLY CRAP I OVERSLEPT!
7:30 “Please hold still and put your pants on while I brush your hair.”
8:00 “Mommy, can I play in the rain before we get in the car?”
8:02 Instagram that adorableness
8:30 Oatmeal with banana isn’t nearly as good as I thought it would be, but at least I’m distracted from the meh taste by typing a scope of work with one hand while eating.
9:30 This scope of work is GOING TO KILL ME.
10:30 “Uh oh. Oh, I’m sure it’s fine. The client was going to hire their nephew to do the videos, so this quality will blow their minds. No, I don’t think that transition will be perceived as awkward by anyone but you.”
11:30 WHY AM I STILL WORKING ON THIS SAME DAMN SCOPE OF WORK?!
11:45 I wonder what would happen if I just didn’t check my email?
12:00 PowerPoint decks are not my spiritual gift
1:00 Time to drive to my team meeting
2:30 Same meeting
3:30 See 2:30
5:30 Heading home
6:00 WHY DOES THIS INTERSTATE HATE ME???
6:30 Time for exercise and a phone call with the boss (one of the bosses, anyway)
7:00 My brain hurts
7:30 Finishing a presentation (I should eat)
9:00 Prepping for a client training session first thing in the morning
9:30 Writing this blog post (actually it’s 9:48)
No, I didn’t forget to pick my child up. She’s staying at her grandmother’s house for the night. We are blessed to have the family support that allows me to make it through days like today. Tomorrow is, dare I say, truly crazy: three different meetings in three different cities.
The magic is this: the sun will rise and set tomorrow just like it did today, and I will do the very best that I can with the gifts, knowledge and experience I have been given.
I’m not the picture of perfect parenting, nor the picture of perfect work / life balance, but I do my best and I am grateful to those who love me enough to help with work and life.
How was your day? Have a case of the Mondays?
