This morning I got up for my 6 AM work out.
And the whole drive there, and the whole drive back (3 minutes each way!) all I could think about was how to get out of work today.
Of course, there was no way out.
I’m one of two people working full-time, and the other full-timer is off for the day. Plus, there’s that Big Wig that I have to show around and I have needy ol’ students and a full inbox to attend to blah blah blah grumble grumble.
I left work early yesterday to take a nap.
I’ve never done that before.
I’m glad I did. I’m feeling much better.
(Obviously. I mean, I’m Blogging and all, right?)
Anyway, I dragged my butt to work a whole TEN MINUTES EARLY. (Actually, I have done that before. Really, I have.)
And then I draaaaaaaagged through my email and other matters of minor importance.
And then, at 12:45, this little distraction showed up at my office door:
We had a lunch date.
He told me I should take this Olive seed home with me–so I could plant an olive tree.
I told him he should take my sunglasses–so I could have this picture:
I’m so glad for little distractions.
