A Week to Forget
You know when you’re having one of those weeks when it just doesn’t seem anything is working out as you planned and you’re not making any traction?
Welcome to my week.
When I went to sleep on Sunday, relaxed from having spent the full weekend with Dale doing things we like to do, I had all kinds of energy and things on my to-do list for Monday and beyond:
- Get back to yoga classes
- Finish all of my assignment deadlines on time and get ahead in my work
- Start at least our afternoon walks again with the dogs
- Organize the kitchen
- Finish washing clothes and rotating the closet
Here it is Thursday and none of that has happened. After we fell asleep on Sunday night, the coyotes decided to make a run by the house about 1:45, which set the dogs off. Dale and I didn’t talk in the dark, but I could feel he was still awake, as I was, when our alarm went off at 4:30 on Monday.
On Tuesday night, I covered the election for our local paper in our county. In the age of electronic voting, this is usually a fairly easy and quick assignment. That is, until there’s a record turn out of voters and problems-a-plenty with voting machines.
Not only did I lose more sleep, but my editor mistakenly called our home phone rather than my cell around midnight.
Good morning, Dale.
As I write this late on Wednesday, I’m looking at the calendar and hoping I can gain more traction on Thursday and Friday (although I’ve already missed yoga).
“Afterall, tomorrow is another day.”
(closing the door to Our Little House and fade to black….)
If you’re having one of those weeks, how do you get back on track?
