If pulling into a parking stall counts, then… I totally went to the gym yesterday.

Somedays seem like Mondays even though they are Thursdays.

At one point yesterday I saw the direction the day/my attitude was headed and I took Thursday by the collar and was all, “YOU ARE NOT THE BOSS OF ME, THURSDAY. YOU ARE THE BULL AND I BELIEVE I HAVE YOU BY THE HORNS, THERE BUDDY.”

Good thing no one was home to witness such things or I’d be trying to write this post with a straight jacket on.

I’m not going to bore you with the details of Thursday. This is not a stinky day competition.

Instead, allow me to sum it up with this one scenario:

Imagine… taking the bull by the horns and deciding the day’s list was going to be PWND.

On that list was “EXERCISE”.

It had been on that list for 4 days, and on the fifith day of not checking off that danged word – EXERCISE WAS GONNA GET DID OR HEADS (mine) WAS GONNA ROLL.

Seriously. I have this *thing* about me. I am a nicer, calmer, more reasonable person when I am able to sweat stuff out.

Not unlike an exorcism, but without the devil and whathaveyou.


So… I scurried and forced my way against the flow with each task and finally reached the point… to getting my car to the parking lot of the gym.

*cue angel choir*

People. I made it INTO a PARKING STALL at the gym… turned the ignition off… put on my earbuds… opened the door and…  I remembered I had a web-based meeting in 30 minutes.

And no computer.

So… I pulled my hair out tore at my clothes closed the door and restarted my car.

I will omit anything that may or may not have been said inside my car with the windows rolled up.

And then I made my way back home.

And got settled for my meeting with two minutes to spare.


Because I am awesome.

I’m curious. How awesome are you? Tell me. Misery Awesome loves company.

Unrelated: I would never make it as a matador.

    My Thursday involved a torn up screen due to a really bizarre dog romance- hence, today’s post.
    So yeah, there’s that.

    And you’d make a totally BOSS matador. Ole!

    I had a personal coaching client that I scheduled on a day that I don’t ever schedule coaching clients on because that is “MY day” no show me and not call after I was rushing around trying to get other things done so I could fit them in. 2 hours later I was fuming and grabbed my phone to text them to let them know only to read the history and find out that the appointment that I had given them and they accepted was on the next day.

    Fail. I. Am. An. Idiot.

    Totally something I would do. As I sit here and stare at my planner that I have barely touched since I got it.

    My Wednesday was much like your Thursday {which was like a Monday}. Are you with me so far? LOL
    I drove an hour away to sit in germ infested waiting rooms with my 7 year old so we can be told her finger is NOT fractured.
    Not that I wanted it to be. Just trying to justify the day.

    Classic! You know, I can’t tell you how many of these days I’ve had myself… When they happen, I just tell myself that it’s all part of the plan! It helps. Sometimes.
