When I was woken up at 7 am by our 3-year-old, I just wanted to cry because I was so tired that it physically hurt to try to pull myself up out of bed. I had fallen into bed sometime around 4 am after trying desperately to play catch up from a weekend of no work because of family being in town and Easter.
I got a fun email from Marsha that made me feel better even if only temporarily.
Feeling more on the upbeat instead of downbeat, I skipped downstairs and made the kids fresh fruit smoothies. I let them pick what we put in them so they were filled with strawberries, blueberries, and grapes. I felt pretty good about myself for making such a fresh yummy breakfast.
Ran upstairs to take a shower, turned on the hot water (it takes forever to warm up sometimes), and ran into my office to answer the studio line. I got sucked in by my office… Until my daughter came in and asked why the shower was on. Had totally forgot… Had to take a miserable cold shower.
Adi spilled her smoothy and it splattered up 4 walls onto the ceiling and all across the floors. Cursing the fresh berry smoothie!
Realized that I had completely missed a set of emails after receiving a threatening email from a client, called immediately to apologize profusely but she’d already requested a refund.
Called hubby ranting about my email still not working and that I am looking like an idiot and that I just want my old email system back and to work right! He went on to give me advice about setting alarms on my phone so I don’t forget things, while this may have been excellent advice, I wasn’t in the mood to hear it.
Cleaned the kitchen, started laundry… Couldn’t find any of Paysen’s undies after an accident so he had to wear his sisters.
Chatted with Kelli for a bit, talked about our sites, and how we could make them better… Talked about an assistant. I really like that idea.
Made dinner out of leftovers, ignored the dishes.
Got to work, was planning to only work till 9 pm. At 9:34 saw an email that said, ‘did you overlook this too?’ Seriously wanted to cry! I had missed the confirmation email for a phone consult because it filtered itself under a Facebook post (want to kick my email in the shins) which subsequently made me miss the phone consult. Got to profusely apologize for the second time in one day, she was awesome and promised she’s a night owl too and so we started talking just before 10 pm.
Worked as hard as I could until I couldn’t any longer… collapsed into bed at 1:30 am and fell into my husband’s arms, instantly realizing while simultaneously whispering, ‘I forgot to make your lunch‘. He told me it was okay and he would just buy lunch tomorrow.
… Thank goodness tomorrow is now today and today is new!
