Some days just never seem to get going, you know? And often it’s no one’s fault but mine, as evidenced by this little vignette.
Wake and miraculously remember that Dashiell has a doctor’s appointment as I lay in bed listening to him babble in his crib at 6:15. Close one!
Scrap plans to take him running in the BOB (using the doctor’s appointment as an excuse because I really hate motivating to do that anyway when Brock is out of town, as he was yesterday.)
Get to doctor’s office early (miraculous!) but then we are forced to wait for 30 minutes anyway.
Get home at 10. Nanny is at home, waiting for us. Yay!
Now, I will settle in to work.
It’s going to be a really productive day.
First check email. Maybe a little light internet surfing, etc.
Decide I must shower before I can work. I didn’t go running, but at least a shower will make me feel ready for the day.
Shower, dress, and sit down at computer to work.
Decide I need a latte before I can REALLY get going. More caffeine!
Quickly drive to Peets for latte.
Return home and sit back down at computer.
Computer would be WAY faster if I restarted.
Oop! Forgot to make Dashiell his lunch for the park. Will make lunch quickly.
Oooooh. There are software updates! Computer would run better with updates. Will install and restart computer again.
Argg. I need a new computer soooo bad. Photoshop takes for-ever to start.
In the meantime I will check email. And maybe look up new computers on the Apple Store. I wonder if anyone has posted any good pictures on facebook?
Oooh an email!
Hmmm. I should eat something before I get going otherwise I will start working and then I will have to stop for nourishment, which will totally disrupt my groove.
What should I make? Pirate’s Booty is not considered breakfast. Wait, lunch.
Poached eggs! Yes! I have new english muffins from Traders! They will be perfect with poached eggs.
You know, I should just eat at the kitchen table. I don’t need to eat at my computer.
New Martha Weddings is kind of cute. Forgot I bought that. Maybe we should have registered for china? Would be so pretty for dinner parties. If we ever get a dining room.
Now I am properly prepared to work.
Wait, I should start a podcast. Score! Two new TALs.
ETC ETC ETC.
And then it actually turned into a surprisingly productive day. But I mean COME ON with how long it takes to get going! These are the days I kind of sort of a teeny bit wish I didn’t work at home. At least I took a photo of my lunch. See? I got a blog post out of my day! Is something.
