I took yesterday off work because I had to be at school by 2:00, and it seemed more sensible to take a full day than a half day. Also, I wanted a chance to sleep in. Here’s what the day looked like.
5:00 am – Wake up. Seriously? It’s 5am, why am I awake? Try to get back to sleep.
6:04 – Wake up again when the neighbours insist on dragging their garbage can past my window. Start to get annoyed, and decide I hate them just a little bit more now.
8:00 – Still awake. Decide I’ll get out of bed at 8:30. Wonder how long it will take Lexie to realize I’m awake and start bugging me.
8:33 – Get out of bed. Lexie never realized I was awake. For whatever reason, she never does on week days, only weekends. It makes no sense at all, my dog is just weird.
8:35 – 9:00 – Take Lexie for her morning walk, and start making breakfast. Decide I’m going to head to my parents house at about ten to drop Lexie off and then hit the grocery store to buy coffee filters.
9:00 – 11:00 – Get sucked into some movie with Shannen Doherty about going back in time. Realize I was supposed to get moving an hour ago and haven’t even gotten dressed yet.
11:45 – Finally make it to my parents house. Steal coffee filters from their cabinet instead of going to the store. Set out all my books to get some last minute studying in before my test later. Instead I somehow wound up playing outside with the dog for half an hour.
12:15 – Sit down to study. Go over my notes a couple times and then open Pinterest and tell myself I`ll only be on there for a minute or two.
1:17 – SHIT! I need to leave in ten minutes! Skim my notes one last time, then run out the door.
When I got to the school I got to be a participant in a research study put on by my Psych instructor – it gets you extra credit – and then I had my final psychology test. It wasn’t a final exam, just a small test. He broke it up into a bunch of small ones over the semester so there was nothing big and stressful. I highly appreciate that approach.
I made it home somewhere around 5:30 and decided to pop in Jillian`s kettle bell dvd. I immediately regretted my decision to stick almost entirely to cardio for the last week and a half. It was hard. Really, really hard. So hard I fell asleep on my couch at 6:30.
Then at 8:30 I took Lexie for a walk. About halfway through, I realized that I still hadn’t fixed my hair after my workout, and that I was wearing a disaster of a hoodie with no bra. I really am just the picture of class.
So, to sum it up, I took the day off work because I had a bunch of stuff to do for school. Instead, I did pretty much nothing, and was completely exhausted from it.
Sounds about right.
