Laying in bed this morning I was avoiding getting up when I received a phone call. The eye appointment I made on Friday for today was with an optometrist that doesn’t do contact fittings…..even though I put in my appointment request “I need my yearly exam and to be fitted for new contacts.” 😡
I was immediately annoyed not just with about the eye appointment but everything.
This tiny glitch in my plan for the week threw off my whole morning. I think I was just so pleased to potentially be getting new contacts before I leave for training but instead I have to wait. I still have some contacts and my glasses but I’m overdue for my exam so it would’ve been nice to get it done.
This morning I took the approach of a rational grownup and thought, “I needed to get this done and now I can’t so the whole day is ruined. I hate everything.” I threw a mini tantrum and contemplated just going back to bed.
Thankfully a cup of coffee and a cute cat video from Facebook reversed my attitude.
Thanks to a cup of caffeine and Boots the cat I realized that the day is not lost and I should be grateful that it’s a Monday at 8:00AM and I don’t have to be at work. I realized I could’ve spent my whole day watching cat videos if that’s what I choose but I decided I should be at least semi-productive.
I went to Target to buy jeans and 8 other things I don’t really need because it’s inevitable when you go to Target. The rest of the day has been cleaning, not fun but it needs done (Ha Ha, that rhymes). I have a cat sitter/apartment watcher coming over so I need to make sure my place is decently clean plus I’ll be home on the weekends for about one day so I want the place to be clean.
It’s going to be weird living in a hotel for so many weeks. I’m still a bit nervous about training but I’m also excited. Most of the people who’ve gone through it tell me how much fun I’ll have and that I’ll meet lots of new people. One of the guys I work with said it would be lonely because I’m not going with anyone else from my area and I won’t know anyone. He’s kind of negative.
I’m really not worried about being lonely because I’ll be in training all day and I know how to entertain myself but ultimately I think I’ll make friends. Also, I’ll be in a new city so it’ll be fun to explore the area. I’ve already started looking for parks nearby so I can hopefully go for walks in the evening.
That’s all I’ve got. This week is going to fly by so I’m going to enjoy the rest of the last day of my 4 day weekend, especially since most of it was spent curled up on the couch sick.
Happy Monday! Here’s to the start of a great week!
