All I can say is: be careful what you wish for.
I woke up this morning feeling quite a bit better. Still have the sniffles, but my headache is gone, hallelujah. So, this morning I had coffee and a nice bowl of warm oatmeal, put on a cute fall sweater and scarf (pants too), was happily having a decent hair day, and actually left on time(!). Well, “left” may be a relative term here. I walked out the door on time. Got in my car, and … nada. Dead battery (womp, womp, womp).
Everyone I know, including Eric, was already at work or on their way. Crazy adults. I know I should have AAA, I know, but I don’t, so stop pressuring me, okay?! Gah.
Basically, I could have paid $$$ for someone to come out, flag someone down, wait until Eric got home for lunch and charge it (but by the time we jumped it and I drove the 45 minute commute to work, I would only really have a few hours there), or … I could call my boss and work from home.
Guess which option I chose…
It is the perfect day for staying in.
I finally have an office with a window!
Now, I really like my coworkers. But I LOVE this one.
I mean, my human colleagues absolutely refuse to sit on my lap. Weirdos.
(sidenote: Eric has warned me I am *thisclose* to having a Cat Blog. Not the first time I’ve veered into crazy cat lady territory.)
It’s against office policy to burn candles at work. Not in this office!
And when I need a little break, I’ve been hanging with these dudes
at the water cooler outside.
But, the best part is – and I kid you not – I have been 100000% more productive today than I’ve been all week. Maybe I should do this more often *coughbossladycough*
