Why I can't get anything done... [Sep. 13th, 2006|08:20 am]

Feeling terribly jealous that SOME people get so much done in one day. Why do I end every day thinking, sonofabitch, if only I had 3 more hours...take yesterday, for starters -- no clients booked, so thought it would be a good day to get stuff accomplished.

Started laundry
Realized I was out of detergent
Went upstairs to start dishwasher
Realized I was out of dishwasher soap
Fed the cats
Cleaned up the mess when one cat ate too fast and turned around and threw breakfast right back up.
Had a Diet Mountain Dew to console myself
Realized I was on my last can of Diet Mountain Dew
Panicked
Went to store to buy various soaps and life-sustaining beverages
Went to bank to make deposit so that I could pay for the above
Realized I'd forgotten the batch of client checks on the kitchen counter
Decided to do that tomorrow, since going home would entail dog excitement which is always followed by dog walk
Stopped off at Home Despot to buy new dining room rug to replace old dining room rug that has been slowly ruined by having too many damned animals in the house
Waited a half an hour as various Despot employees tried to figure out how to get the rug I wanted down from the ceiling because I chose one that was not on the shelf
Realized that the reason said rug was hanging from the ceiling as a display was that it was defective
Ordered said rug which will arrive sometime in the distant future, a good time after my dinner party later this week
Go to the grocery store, bought the stuff, brought it home, see above for dog excitement and resulting walk
Started dishwasher and laundry
Mowed lawn
No, wait, put gas can in car, drove up to get gas to run lawnmower
Mowed lawn
Took a break to curse out soon-to-be-ex-husband for taking such crappy care of said lawnmower
Searched the yard for the little pin that holds the side of the lawnmower together
Found pin, reassembled lawnmower...

But that's really enough, as far as explanations go, isn't it?

I have days like that, too. I just don't post about them, because that would undermine my rep.

But I might change that policy. Your post was a LOT more entertaining than mine.
