Life & Everything

I just know that today is gonna end badly

I am a creature of habit. I need my mornings to follow a set pattern. I wake up, have a shower, grab breakfast and my prepared lunchbox, go to the office and have a cup of tea. My brain doesn’t quite start working until I’ve gotten to the last point.

This morning started bad. Some days, you are just not meant to get out of bed.

I overslept. Only by a few minutes, but that is beside the point. I forgot to set the alarm last night. I still woke up about the same time as usual, but that didn’t make me feel any less stressed. In the shower, I dropped the shampoo bottle on my toe AND cut myself while shaving my legs.

The fridge was unusually empty and there was no prepared lunchbox. Em has been out of commission for the last few days due to some stomach bug (or alternatively a run-in with a bad piece of sushi). I was planning on going to the grocery store yesterday but was too tired when I finally remembered it. I blame it all on the report I was writing at work. It took forever and I lost track of time, and consequently stayed in the office several hours longer than I had planned. Bonus points to Em’s boyfriend who gave me a ride home.

Food allergies make life complicated. I miss the good old days when I could just grab something random from the fridge/pantry/vending machine whenever I had forgotten to prepare lunch the evening before. Life was so much easier then. Today, I ended up with a hard-boiled egg, some baby carrots, a tomato and some tortilla chips. Not the most exciting lunch.

When I got in the office, there was no milk. That was on the shopping list for yesterday. I don’t drink tea without milk. Clearly, today is not meant to be.
