Monday Mayhem

My week started out with me hitting the off button on my alarm clock instead of the snooze button. I was awakened by my dog sticking her big mug (and subsequently her horrendous Golden Retriever breath, note to self: BRUSH DOGS TEETH) in my face at ten till eight. Perfect! I have to be at work at 8:30 and with what seems to be a never ending detour I need to leave to my house by 8:07 to make it to work by 8:30. I can leave by 8:12, pull a Mario Andretti and still be arriving into the parking lot at 8:30.

Today? I left my house at 8:20. Even with death defying driving, a near death experience for the man wearing the bright yellow safety vest who thought he could just jump out in front of my car to stop me so a big concrete truck could make its way back into traffic, one really bad parking job, and several jabs at the “close door” button on the elevator I somehow managed to beat my boss to work. Barely. It was a close call, but I made it.

Over sleeping is not a great way to start off a work week. That combined with other factors including my boss's loud booming voice which has a tendency to drone on and on (and on and on) about inconsequential matters and a meeting that was held in a conference room whose temperature would have perfect for hanging dead animal carcasses (pretty sure it was sub-zero) do not make for a very happy Monday morning.

In order to cheer myself up here’s some things I am looking forward to this week.

• Going out to celebrate a friend’s birthday after work one evening.

• A shopping trip to the newly opened Tanger Outlets!

• Friday at 5:00 (because really, who doesn’t look forward to that).

• Going to see WICKED in Pittsburgh on Saturday afternoon. Seriously, I have been waiting MONTHS for this!

• OSU vs. USC party with some friends Saturday night.

What are you looking forward to this week?

I slept in another 15 minutes today, figured that greasy hair was ok for today. It looks rather chic.

Isn't funny how we have our drive time to work figured to the minute? I have the lights all figured out, they are green at the same time every morning. We kick butt.

I'm going to your house in case of a natural disaster. You have food for days.

Hope your day gets better:)

I have a HUGE client meeting this Wed/Thurs/Fri...basically the culimination of 9 months of work (its like a wedding except not as much fun). I will be SO happy when its over.

Plus I booked myself a celebration massage for Saturday. DEFINITELY looking forward to that.

AHH! I turned my alarm off yesterday and slept straight through the time I should have been at church! I hate it when you feel so rushed.

I am looking to Friday and this weekend! This week is going to be so long! I am also looking forward to going to bed tonight haha :)

Hope you had a better day!

By the way, I love the Tanger Outlets! Have fun!

Hmmm..... let me see.... what am I looking forward to this week..... I can tell you what I'm NOT looking forward to, Thursday, when my parents leave for a few days. Damn them, thinking they deserve time alone.

And... 6 pm on everyday for my soap opera.

ITA on the oversleeping thing. That can totally get your week off to the wrong start. Wicked is awesome, you will love it.

FYI: I tagged you for a meme too.
