I am home from work; rubbish bins are out in the alley and I am having a glass of wine.
I had a really terrible day today. I got up without a problem and even showered without incident, but after that things went downhill.
I blow-dried my hair to some old lady style (not intentional), and then I tried to cook a new oatmeal. My microwave takes twice as long as the old apartment one (not sure if that is because it is a convection/microwave?) - anyway after about 3 minutes I opened the door and pulled my bowl towards me expecting it to be "set" but it was still really runny and it spilt everywhere – in the microwave, over the bench, on the floor!! I decided not to try again and got out my trusty egg and tomato which I have been having every morning for years – break the egg into a bowl and chop the tomato and place around the egg – cover with gladwrap and microwave for about 1.5 minutes.
Well, the egg was a double yoke-er which is meant to be good luck – but mine started leaking and lost the yolk shapes. Put the tomato in, covered and about a minute into the cooking there was a loud "pop" sound as the plastic broke and egg splattered all over the just cleaned microwave!! This can NOT be happening!
Cleaned the microwave quickly – really I have to do it properly tonight – ate what was left of the egg/tomato, finished getting ready and raced off to the station. Six minute wait to a train and then somewhere along the way the doors broke!! (doors not closing = train not moving)
Got to work basically right on 8am and ……….. found a temp waiting for me! I THOUGHT I had organised a 4 hour working interview for 9am tomorrow! (I still believe I did – I mean who in their right mind would have someone turn up at 8am on the first day back after all those days off!).
My ordered veggie salad for lunch came without the avocado or swiss cheese but WITH the nasty cucumber!! Someone really had it in for me!
I made it to 5pm without hurting myself, or others, and got to the station successfully – for the FIRST train. Somewhere in the two working days that I did not have to travel home from the office my brain lost the ability to make the right connection. I got off the first train at the correct station but then went up the wrong escalators and then stood on the platform for a good 10 minutes (TWO trains) wondering why the one to my destination wasn't coming in!! God!!
Eventually the blonde moment cleared and I made my way, up, over, down to the correct side – got on a train and everything was looking rosey……… until we got outside a station about 3 before mine and sat in the tunnel for 15 minutes with the driver telling us periodically that we were about to "move momentarily"!!
I have to say that I was REALLY relieved to get inside the house and remember the alarm code!!!
Now on my second glass of wine – well, what's left of it. I can not believe that as I was typing this I knocked it over and am now mopping the new carpet with Resolve hoping to get the red stains out!! Thank God the astro-dweeb is not here – he can still be the first to ruin the carpet! :-)
