Have you ever had a week where you were totally and completely disoriented?
I don’t know whether it’s the fact that I am without a training schedule for the first time since May; the fact that my Monday was uber-exciting and seemed to last forever (in one of those great ways that you never want to end); the fact that everyone around me is distracted by baseball; or the fact that all the partners in my law office left today for a retreat, which meant I had a bunch of fictitious internal deadlines to meet yesterday.
What I do know is that I can’t seem to keep up this week! On Tuesday, I would have sworn it was Thursday. And, today, I kept thinking it was Tuesday.
Case in point :: I sat down tonight to participate in this great ColorInc giveaway. It closed on Tuesday. (Still, you better believe I’ll be ordering one of those puppies!)
Earlier today, I finally scheduled a hair appointment. This may sound small, but it’s actually a pretty big deal. This will be my first haircut since March. My stylist of 8 years left me for Austin. I can’t blame her; I love Austin; I might leave me for Austin, too. But, she is seriously irreplaceable. Or maybe I have trust issues. Oh well, tomorrow is a new day and will end with a new ‘do. Back to the point here . . . This scheduling call took twice as long as it should have because — even with my calendar right in front of my face — I couldn’t wrap my head around the fact that tomorrow is Thursday, not Wednesday, because today is (in fact) Wednesday and not Tuesday. Are you with me?
I hope I’m not alone here. I hope it means that I’m enjoying life so much that pesky little details like days of the week are immaterial. I also hope it doesn’t meant that I’ve missed all sorts of critical deadlines that are going to come back and bite me next week.
Until then, I think I’ll indulge by eating caramel praline crunch frozen yogurt while watching the Biggest Loser. (Yes, I know it airs on Tuesday, and today is Wednesday. Isn’t DVR grand?)
