This was written on the date above but I’m not posting it until now because I was having a computer issue. I couldn’t get my Mac to connect to my home network and when I was at the coffee house I forgot to post it. I also forgot about it when I was at home and could have moved it to my flash drive and then posted it online using my other computer. So, a day late, but here it is.
Before I went to bed last night I set my alarm for 9:30 and 10AM. I had the intentions of getting up and going to town – about an hour away from where I live, an hour and half away from where I work – because I wanted to enjoy a day out and needed to do some shopping for work. There’s a few items we need and can’t get in the town I work in. Then I remembered….
I forgot to get money from work to pay for the things I needed and I had also left most of the money I had left in my office, too. I know, it’s always a good idea to leave your personal money in your office at work. I haven’t gone to the banking center yet to deposit it and didn’t want to carry it around with me. Smart, I know.
And I was just reminded, when I had to type in my password to install an update, I need to go through all my websites which I have a password for and change the password. I had to give my password out to two different people this week – again, I know, not smart – and I would like to change that.
So I remembered this little fuck up while I was at Walmart looking for a cool pad for my Mac.
I recently tweeted, I think, that I had resisted the urge to buy some things that I don’t need. I also resisted the urge to buy a cool pad last night because I do have one I don’t like that I can clean the dust and cat hair from that my dad used to use. (#runon much?) I’m also going to go online and look for one that is 13 inches but I don’t have to buy that one right now. So there has been a little progress in the life of a serial shopping: a shopaholic. But part of that may also be the fact that I think I’m about out of money.
So last night I decided I would have to drive into work before going to town. This morning – and by morning I totally mean “noon” – when I finally got out of bed I didn’t move very far. I was reading a book a little while ago and got sleepy. Luckily I decided not to go back to bed. I got up and started moving by ironing my clothes for today. So props to me for resisting that urge, too.
I also wanted to clean out and wash my car today, but I don’t think that is going to get done. At least if it does it won’t happen until late tonight, right before I return home.
One of the places I needed to go in town closes at 5 and are closed on Sunday. It is now 3PM and that will not happen. I don’t want to go next week so I don’t know what I’ll do. Maybe I will go next week but that will just take even more time out of what I really need to do! That or I’ll have to get up super early one morning which I don’t like doing.
As for today, I don’t know what I’m going to do. I want to get some writing done. I would like to go in and get a little paperwork done at work. I really need to clean my fucking office, and organize all the paperwork that is strewn all over the fucking place. At the moment I think I’ll get ready, pick up my money, probably go to the coffee shop first and get a little writing done. I’m not going to go to town. The other place I wanted to go in town was a used bookstore that I know will be closed tomorrow. But I didn’t really need to go there…but I really, really wanted to. I bet I could find some books about my Mac there. That thought really makes me want to go but, oh well.
But the biggest point I’d like to make is that I’m not going to beat myself up for not getting up and 9:30 like I wanted to and not getting more accomplished today. It is, after all, Saturday, a day for me to rest and recoup my sanity. Something that really does need to be done frequently! Maybe more will get done tomorrow, and maybe it won’t. We will just have to see how today ends up.
