Today was one of those days… I woke up tired. Which isn’t that unusual lately, because work has been crushingly busy, but today was I experienced that kind of mind numbing exhaustion that is hard to shake.
It took more effort than usual to get up and going. Once I did, things were looking up. Or so I thought… I went to the restroom at work and realized I had completely forgotten to put on makeup. Now, I don’t wear much makeup, so maybe it wasn’t that noticeable to everybody else, but I noticed. I guess the bright side is that I didn’t put makeup on only one eye…
All morning, my brain was in a fog. I sent emails without the attachments. I called someone and then forgot why I was calling. I got halfway to the printer and had forgotten why I had gotten up. At one point, one of my employees came in and starting asking a question, then stopped when she realized I was just staring blankly at her. I was so engrossed in whatever I was pondering that it was hard to switch gears (usually I’m pretty good at that).
I printed out a list I needed for an errand I had to run at lunch – then headed out and walked 6 blocks to the store and realized I had forgotten the list. I had to walk all the way back to get it! At least I doubled my lunchtime exercise!
The afternoon was much better – my brain started firing on all cylinders and I got some productive work done!
Have you had a day like this? I’m heading to bed so tomorrow will be better!
