Today started out well and then declined into a fairly frustrating day.
The morning went well, we had a nice breakfast at a quiet restaurant not too far from home and then did some quick shopping. I wore my hiking boots and that seemed to be a good choice for my ankle. Of course, they are a bit heavier than my normal shoes and I was feeling a little tired when we got home. Nothing was really going on so I sat down and put my foot up. I had barely sat down when there was an issue that I needed to weigh in on. No big deal, I got up and we figured it out. I sat back down and put my foot back up. Then the dog threw up and then something else happened, at that point I abandoned the idea of putting my foot up.
I moved on to straightening my desk, then I got a phone call, I put it on speaker and kept sorting paperwork. For the most part that was fine but I had a stack of stuff I needed to shred and couldn’t very well do it while talking on the phone. I don’t blame the person that called but it was bad timing and I could’ve let the call go to voicemail. It was just one of those things that didn’t really work for me at the time and combined with the other interruptions I was frustrated and irritable.
There were periods of peace and quiet that I am thankful for but they were definitely banked by times of interruption. I know I should be more Zen about it but I think I would need more sleep and possibly some medication for that.
Today, I am thankful for peaceful moments. And the Mythbusters, we watched a few episodes today. I’d seen them all before but it was a good thing to watch amid the interruptions.
