Does Anyone Really Know What Day It Is?
I have been in brain fog mode all week, but today seemed extra bad. I got to work an hour late (apparently all that pressure to BE ON TIME the other day wore off due to almost no sleep at all and less caffeine!) and then locked my keys in my car. That's generally OK because I have one of those door key/car alarm beepers that I can click and electronically open the locks, & I keep that attached to my purse, however during my trip I put it in my luggage after eeeeking my car trunk open with it in the long term parking lot, and my luggage is still locked in my trunk. Luckily I had an extra car door key at home (40 miles away) and my sister was kind enough to drive all that way just to bring it to me so I didn't have to call a door unlocking service and cost me $50.00 to get my car keys out of the seat.
It was one of those crazy days when everyone does a melt down - customers and co-workers alike - so I wasn't alone in brain fog land; I kept bumping into fellow fog bound travelers through out the day. I stayed late tonight to make up time, and actually was able to think two coherent thoughts in a row when I had no phone calls coming in.
My co-worker who stayed behind at the clients this week lost all his possessions in a fire at his apartment complex here. He is such a nice guy, he said all his good clothes were with him, so not to worry. He wouldn't come home because he had a mission at the client to complete. I sure hope he takes some time off when he gets back! His very nice daughter has been coordinating donations from his friends here at work and through out the city to get another apartment setup and ready for him to come back to this Saturday, but there are probably insurance adjusters and everything else waiting for him to get back here. There were 10 families displaced by the fire and no one was injured, which is a miracle. The roof caught fire from an electrical short and part of the burning rafters collapsed into his apartment, pretty well destroying it. Maybe it is a good thing he stayed behind at the clients, because he could have been home when the fire happened and the roof fell in.
Ready to go to bed soon, very tired, and I am determined to BE ON TIME again tomorrow. Too many things to do and not enough days to do them.
