Spinning the Case of the Mondays

9 Jun

Mondays are usually pretty rough days simply because it’s a Monday. Today, however, was a bit worse than most… the air conditioning was on the fritz at the office so I’m pretty sure I received a steam facial for free which would have been nice if we didn’t have 15 of our most important clients in the building. We scrambled and made some accommodations and things were fine but I spent my day in a sauna.

Rather than do the “woe is me,” thing, here are few things that were great about my day:

  • I’m digging my younger brother working at the office. He knows when I need a break and we engage in mindless chatter… well, that and he works out with complaining which is more than I can say for some of my 40-something counterparts.
  • I received a text from my friend who got married on New Year’s. She’s in OK now and we rarely catch each other by phone so the “just saying I miss you and love you!” text brightened my day.
  • Coming home to Jack. He’ll be four in July…
  • Granting myself a day of no gym and instead, attempting to catch the Shakespeare Festival in the park (the rain ruined that) so we all wound up at my recently married (yes, I was in that wedding. The Indian one) house where we truly caught up and all laughed until we literally cried.
  • Planning my exercises out for the rest of the week.

    Hmm…sounds like a decent Monday. Makes me wonder what else you had time for?

    That air conditioning situations SUCKS – it actually was out for parts of the day in my building. And I worked in England for a summer and had no air conditioning… they should really send people home when that happens. It’s sort of hard to look professional and talk to clients when your pit stains cover more of your shirt than the dry parts…. it’s like if the bathrooms stop working. We should all just get to go home!
