The Dangers of a Rainy October Day
October 4, 2010 § Leave a comment
I have the day off of work today, hooray! I had big plans for this day which centered primarily on me getting my life together. I guess that sounds a bit more dramatic than I intended, but do you ever get into one of those ruts when you honestly feel like you just need to hit the re-set button and make a change? Well that’s what today was supposed to be, my re-set button day. This is what my ambitious to-do list looked like for today:
Wake-Up by 7:30am
Gym/Swim for an hour
Log-In to work to organize inbox from the weekend
Clean the entire apartment, including doing the laundry and mopping the floors
Send the 458 emails that I’ve been meaning to do
Pay a much needed visit to the grocery store
Plan dinner using the groceries I buy
Surprise Jeff and bake homemade chocolate chip cookies
Catch up on Mad Men
And this is what I actually got accomplished:
My alarm clock (Willie) slept in until 9:00
I did accomplish my morning reading so props to me for that
Shopped online at Target, (got some super cute booties though!!)
Sent massive amounts of emails, I’ll just pat myself on the back for that one.
Craved a chocolate cupcake from Magnolia Bakery
So essentially….I accomplished almost nothing and I only left the apartment once today to get coffee (“Breakfast”). But I did brave 40 degree temperatures and down pouring rain, so I guess I get bonus points for putting in a good effort. Right? Yes? Anyone? Bueller? Gah, what is wrong with me?! I just completely wasted my day!
I should probably at least go shower. Jeff might appreciate that.
