You know that children's book that starts out, "I went to bed with gum in my mouth and I woke up with gum in my hair?"
That's the kind of day today was. The kind of day where I wake up tired and vaguely stressed over work and politics. No real reason for stress either, mind you.
And then I forgot to pack a lunch. So I ate some soup that was leftover from my lunch yesterday. And then at 6:00pm, I realized that I had an appointment after work and I also had forgotten to pack a dinner and also that now if I stopped to get dinner, I'd be late. So, I went without.
I finally came home tonight around 10pm, starving, exhausted, and a totally wreck.
And now I've eaten, and decompressed a little, but I still feel largely like this day has thumped me flat on my back.
And all I want to do is crawl under the covers and go to bed, but predictably, I have stuff that needs doing. Ah well.
