I knew it was going to be a busy day today, so I drove the the gym for an invigorating workout before heading into the office: made it there by 7:30am! Problem: the gym opens at 8:00am on Saturdays.
Spent several hours working on video, the avocation that is eating my job alive. And, for hours, couldn't find the project that I spent 3 days completing. Disappeared. Poof. Gone.
But then, magically? Somewhere in the run of this new opera we're workshopping, sometime after the fabulous Shoe aria, but before the Rumbling Stomach aria, my luck turned.
Video found. Funny, funny operatic lines (it's not an oxymoron, I PROMISE!) giggled and snorted at. (I'm too dumb to fix the preposition - sorry.) Checks remembered (at the last minute) and disbursed. Office vacated during daylight hours. Hubby and neighbors and three labradors waiting for me with smiles, adult beverages and good conversation at the ready. Pretty hanging baskets and a tidy kitchen awaiting me at home.
And, while I'm not really psyched about spending more time at the office tomorrow, it'll be worth it to have usable video before Monday rolls around. Wish me luck, my friends!
- Sweet hubby.
- Good neighbors.
- Interesting, fun work.
- Patient colleagues.
