I woke up 30 minutes before my alarm, lying in bed debating the pros and cons of getting up at that moment. More sleep is proving counter-productive; I had a schedule to keep and if I didn’t then my whole day was destined to shift “out-of-whack”. I can’t remember whether I had a dream last night. I rubbed my eyes and realized that I missed “The Walking Dead” last night.
My workout, that early morning cardio, didn’t have that exuberant flow of energy I hoped to feel. My heart rate, per the heart-rate-monitor, stayed relatively low probably because my effort was equally low. While this is not uncommon, I was hoping to complete the routine feeling more energized.
Here’s to a hot shower, a nice breakfast, and a fresh perspective.

Nearly two hours into the workday, took a short walk to a convenience store for coffee and gum; my mind wondered as I wandered to store; my five-minute walk took nearly ten minutes, I arrived to see a hand printed sign on the door that read, “THE DEBIT IS DOWN CASH ONLY”, luckily for me I put twenty dollars in my pocket before I left for work. I gave up Starbucks coffee over four years ago, the addiction was both costly and fattening so, I resorted to drinking regular coffee at home or buying the cheap stuff.
My calendar is full of afternoon meetings, all of them I had to facilitate and document; this job forces me out of my natural introverted state to interact with people at a very detailed level…yeah, this job has me longing for my natural introverted state.

During lunch, I was able to watch last night’s episode of “The Walking Dead” while eating a delicious turkey sandwich. Unfortunately I had to return to work, the beautiful spring-like weather had me wanting to stay away all afternoon. After reading several emails and the subsequent responses, I wish I had stayed away…there were a couple of messages that made me laugh, purely due to their ridiculous nature. Soon, I will have to open the doors to Hell and spend my afternoon trying to collaborate with difficult personalities.

Yeah, things got interesting as the afternoon progressed. The email messages from the poor woman who kept dialing into a meeting that was cancelled; I felt sorry for her, well, just for a moment as I was more concerned because she was the reason the meeting was cancelled in the first place. I spent the rest of the afternoon with my disgruntled cohorts; I imagined the moment ending with a speeding car pulling up to the conference room window as I jumped through the glass into the express getaway.

I’m barely through Monday and already thinking about this Saturday. I keep ending days like this with the thought, “I can’t do this anymore,” only to wake up the next morning and do it again.
