My work committments with the Election has doubled. I hate to admit it, but I am feeling like I've bitten off more than I can chew. I hate days where I just go go go and get nothing done.
Today I was involved in a group of interviews to fill a vacant position in the organization. Yes, its important, but it is also a complete waste of a day. I got nothing accomplished which got me further behind. Plus there were 2 emergencies which pulled me out of 2 of the interviews mid stream.
I also had a personal committment at lunch time, and of course I was wearing a pair of seriously pointy toe heels. Why is this important, you might ask? Well, because I didn't get home for a break at lunch time, my little summer flip flop accustomed wearing feet were mushed into cute, but painful shoes ALL DAY. By 3pm I was walking on numb stubs at the end of my legs. Lol
Then there is that panicked call from home. Yes, I forgot to re-order Mom's presciptions (which she must take regularly) and there are zero pills left in the bottle. None for her 5pm dose. Call the pharmacy and the prescription became out-dated last week. By now it is 4:30 and I am frantic with the pharmacist. Since she knew what the medication was for, she knew we needed it. So it was refilled for a few days until I can contact the doctor and get a new prescription. Whew!
If I can just make it through tomorrow without the nice men in the white coats coming for me, I might be OK. I am taking Friday off.
