5:15am- Alarm goes off. I flirt with the idea of quitting my job and going back to sleep. Practicality wins out and I get up, bumping into walls on the way to the bathroom.
6:00am- Drive to work, noting that the gas tank is nearly empty. But it's payday, so I'm not worried.
6:30am- Morning coffee and work
10:30am- On my break, I attempt to buy some lunch and a game I've been wanting. My card comes up declined. It's expired. I use the last of my cash for food.
2:30pm- Get off work, spend some time reading. Try to write, but my Dana is out of batteries.
3:30pm- Drive home, catch up on computer stuff and generally relax.
4:45pm- Realize three things. 1.) I'm hungry. 2.) There is next to no food in the house, and 3.) my card is expired and I have no cash. Husband's card is fine, but he's in school for the next couple of hours.
5:30pm- Husband calls, looking for his backpack. Can I bring it to him? Excited about getting the card, I run out the door without my coat.
5:31pm- It begins to rain. Hard.
5:40pm- I pick up the card and go straight to Winco, which is crowded. I have to park in the next lot over and walk. In the rain.
6:00pm- I get in and out in of Winco in record time. Despite being wet and cold, I'm feeling pleased with myself and happy to have gotten dinner, so I decide to buy gas on the way home.
6:15pm- I lock the keys in the car at the gas station.
6:16pm- I say many bad words, while rattling the doors to try to make them open. I'm only a block from home, but I can't get in without the keys. My purse and phone are both in the car.
6:17pm- Try to call husband from the gas station. It turns out to be a long distance call and I'm refused.
6:18pm- The nice gas-station lady lets me use her iphone. Husband picks up on the second call. He's just finished, but it will take him twenty minutes to walk to the gas station.
6:20pm- To entertain myself, I open up the paper and check my horoscope. This is what it says.
Your noble effort to complete certain projects, return calls and/or clear your desk might be frustrating.
