This morning when my alarm went off I felt remarkably refreshed, like my body was completely ready to get up, at 6:50, not normal. That was pretty much where the good fortune ended today.
I popped out of bed and grabbed Scarlett’s leash for our daily walk to find it was POURING. Why I was surprised at this point I’m not sure. One step outside found both of us scrambling back for the porch and sending Scar on a quick scurry into the back yard to do her business and hurry inside. I figured without our 20 minute walk I could get to work early, and potentially leave a little early. I scarfed a pumpkin spice bagel (yes, the pumpkin is now in full force in my life) and headed out the door to get my Monday-morning-get-myself-to-work Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks.
Once I got there the morning started weirdly due to a few co-workers starting late today and a few on vacation. It is crazy how when you work with a team having pieces missing really throws off your whole mojo. Really made me appreciate the amazing team I work with. The rest of the day was a perpetual reminder of the fact that I work with people and that means no predictability. Sometimes I swear all my patients team up and agree to be difficult and try to see if I will lose my mind. No matter, I made it through and headed out the door to go home, whooped and ready to start over tomorrow.
Upon exit, it was still raining and downtown was majorly flooded. I immediately checked the forecast and if the weather man knows what he is talking about the sun may actually make an appearance tomorrow. My running is a cut back this week before my final week of surge allowing me to be more flexible with my rest day. I moved my rest day to today in favor of maybe having dry shoes for once.
After a stressful day I turned to YogaGlo.com and my mat to attempt to relax my poor flailing mind. I can’t say it solved all my problems but I did feel a bit better and more able to let my day go to move on to tomorrow.
We made it through Monday everyone!!
