Dear December 1, 2010,
We are not friends.
Because on my very short walk to work I go completely soaked from the waist down. An umbrella is not very helpful when the rain is coming sideways.
In light of this most inauspicious day, I am going to make a list because lists are a great way to deal with everything life can possibly throw your way.
Facts of Today (Pros in green, cons in red):
Pro: I opened the first door on my advent calendar this morning (a teddy-bear shaped chocolate).
Pro: I drank coffee with a splash of eggnog. :)
Con: I had to lie down on my bed just before leaving for work to psyche myself up for the day.
Con: It rained so hard that I arrived at my office completely soaked from the waist down, and thoroughly wet from the waist up. (Like I had to wring out my underwear kind of soaked. Sorry - TMI?)
Pro: I had extra clothes in my desk from yesterday. (This fact totally saved my life. Dry pants = Hallelujah!)
Con: My run lasted 23 minutes last night.
Con: I spent an hour this morning at a timekeeper training meeting.
Pro: There was coffee and pastries at the aforementioned meeting.
Pro: This list looks Christmas-y.
Pro: Pictures of soaking wet pets amuse me.
And now I feel better. Because all told, my day really isn’t that bad.
Hope you’re having a happy Wednesday!
