So, How Was Your Day?

I AM EXHAUSTED. My new mattress and bed frame arrived, and I had to haul two giant, heavy boxes up the stairs by myself, move my old bed into the other room, and then put everything together. Every muscle in my body hurts. But behold:

It is so, so comfortable. (It’s one of these, for the curious.) I hope I’ll actually be able to get out of it in the morning.

    Today is the day that my final attendance count for my event next week is due to the country club, and I still have so many sponsors who have not told me if they are filling their tables completely! Ugg, sponsors! Get with it! Also my cat woke me up at 3am and just wandered around my bedroom making little trilling noises, which was very cute, but also infuriating because I wanted to play before I went to bed and she wanted to play after I’d been asleep for five hours. And I have to leave work early to trap her in the bathroom while a repair guy comes to fix my blinds, and leaving work early is kind of the last thing I need this week. That cat is lucky she’s the cutest creature who ever walked the planet, I’ll say that.

        Have you ever tried the fake out RSVP deadline? We have advertised deadlines a week before we really need the RSVP, but I think people started to catch on, so it has to be used in moderation.

        • flanny says:

          The event is a week from today, and I’m inviting people who get invited to this sort of shit/are members of organizations who throw this sort of event all the time SO YOU THINK THEY’D KNOW THAT WE NEED FINAL NUMBERS A WEEK IN ADVANCE SO EVERYONE HAS FOOD.

        • Sota says:

          The people who attend these sorts of things all the time usually aren’t the kind of people who consider the logistics and ramifications of the employees that have to scramble to make it happen.

          Sigh, I know. This is really the only time I have to do stuff with high level donors, and it makes me remember why I chose to work with the lower donors.

    Nice work, Theresa!

    Today is crazy – so many work projects. There is also a big work event this weekend, so it’s extra stressful.

    Last night, Mr. Costco made plantain tacos, and they were delicious, and I can’t wait until it’s time to eat dinner because we have a bunch of leftovers.

    She’s pretty!

  4. My day is good so far! Had to work two 11 hour days Mon-Tues, so I’m relaxing a little today. Ending work at 5 but staying in the office to photoshop our trivia host into ridiculous situations in revenge for him putting a “It’s been [2] weeks since [NABI’S team name] won trivia” sign up with all our photos on it.
    Then I’m headed to get a free TV from my friend, a step up after using a computer monitor for the past year. It’ll be nice to not have to use a jambox as speakers.

    In good news from yesterday that’s still making me happy, the print studio I go to asked if I want to teach a class. I might wait until fall, but it sounds fun! And pays!

    My day has barely started but one of America’s favorite TV dads (?) from the 80s is currently in my office for a meeting. I’m super excited today because the best show on television starts a new season tonight. I strongly encourage all of you to watch MTV’s The Challenge so we can all be fans together. They do super hard physical challenges, compete to stay in the game, strategize, and drink a whole lot and get in fights. It’s the perfect reality TV show.

    I’ve owned the same bed since 1999. Lately I can feel individual springs, but I feel like I should wait till I move to buy a new one. I have no plan to move, though. Realistically I will be in this bed until 2023. Eating canned soup and listening the neighbor’s radio as it wafts in through the window. I live like a Depression Era senior citizen.

    They moved my desk at work yesterday at the end of the day, so today I am disoriented. I went from a big desk in a cube beside a giant window to a sort of shelf-desk in a cramped corner next to cement. I am not psyched about this change. But it did at least prompt me to throw out a ton of crap that I had piled on the old desk over the past 5 years. (I am trying to look on the bright side.)

    • martinmegz says:

      Did you get to keep your stapler???????

    • I haven’t had a desk in two years and even then, it wasn’t a proper desk. It was a spot at a long table next to other people. Now I’m very nomadic, we switch “rooms” (they don’t have real walls) with every project, so I just haul stuff with me. Which means I can’t have much stuff. It’s surprisingly liberating. All my papers are tied to my project, so they either get archived or chucked at the end.

      I do sometimes miss having a real space, especially when I’m having trouble concentrating.

    It’s been weird. I’m so behind on sleep and I just need maybe three days to catch up. My kid woke up in the middle of the night and (thankfully!) that’s not really standard anymore and I’m so tired! Also there’s some weird work stuff that I don’t really want to go into but it’s a real thorn in my side. This job is 60% awesome and 40% are-you-f-ing-kidding-me? and I just need to be better at focusing on the 60% and ignoring the 40%.

    Monday and Tuesday at work were total panic central. Today has been pretty decent, which probably means there is a storm brewing for more panic tomorrow. The thing that is keeping me relatively sane is that I am in la-la land because I am all a flutter with my beau. We made plans to go visit his family in Seattle in two weeks, so I have that to look forward to. Can’t wait to be together again. Long distance sucks.

    Oh also today I am wrapping up a short food-related post about my last trip to California. Prior to the trip I was going to do a Tourism for Winos post about my Napa weekend, but now am not sure I have it in me because it was just a wild ride of a trip. The bride drunkenly “lost” her engagement ring at the bachlorette bar crawl. (Turns out another girl had taken charge of it, thankfully). We ended up at only 1 of the 4 scheduled winery tours because apparently a group of girls is not capable of keeping a schedule when hungover and so I don’t think I can do it justice cause I didn’t get to wino very much in Napa. 😦 I need a return trip on my own someday instead.

    I have cavities! So I went to the dentist today, and I like her a lot, but she does these really aggressive cleanings. My whole mouth hurts, plus I have to come back tomorrow for a filling. I’ve already bought a fancy electric toothbrush for this woman, why does she want to cause me pain??

    • I need to get my wisdom teeth out and I have been avoiding it for years. Every so often they get a bit irritated, but otherwise don’t bother me. I just hate having to ask someone to come pick me up after the surgery and then dealing with the pain.

      • flanny says:

        Many years ago a dentist told me there was an 80% chance I’d need to have a root canal, so I never went back to that dentist and whenever my tooth hurts I just chew on the other side.

        • welcometocostcoiloveyou says:

          I haven’t been to a dentist in a really long time. My gums were (and still are) receding, and a dental specialist said they could graft cadaver skin to fix it. NOPE NOPE NOPE!

        • Sota says:

          OMG cadaver skin. Im going to have nightmares about that.

        • artdorkgirl says:

          Ugh! They keep thinking my gums are receding and then they remember that no, I just have really low gums. I too, would reject the cadaver skin. No thank you.

        • martinmegz says:

          WHY DO THEY HAVE TO CALL IT CADAVER SKINNN why can’t they just say hey, we’re going to do a graft to fix your gums, don’t worry about it just suck on this laughing gas.

      • hotspur says:

        I had a cleaning yesterday! What a small world. It sucked.

        I hadn’t been since January 2015. I just forgot, even though my insurance gives me 2 freebies per year. He said I have to come back in 4 months this time because I went too long last time, and if I don’t, he’ll have to give me a “deep clean.”

        I had the deep clean once. I will definitely be there in 4 months.
