The day started off on the wrong foot - I started work later than I wanted to. I thought I had a meeting right the second I walked in the door and, waiting for people to arrive or dial in, I missed the chance to go down and get coffee and fruit. Later, when I went down, all the coffee machines were out. I was starving, so I inhaled a Kashi bar while waiting for the meeting to start. I missed my cereal!
Turns out I was the only one who had the meeting on my calendar! And so the day began.
I spent a large part of the day working on the request for production and discovered, to my horror, that I had omitted one of the requests when I prepped the documents. I was terrified my attorney would come unglued, but she did not!
I evaluated an advanced speech today and took home the ribbon. The speech was from the Special Events manual and the speaker wrote the speech about his stepdaughter's upcoming high school graduation. It was a marvelous speech and, as I told him, it was obvious to me that this was a subject he cared about. His delivery was absent the painful pauses, the uneven delivery and bushel of fillers. It was the best speech I've heard him give!
I did not put in any OT and did not hit the gym on my way out the door. I am feeling really run down. I did not sleep well last night. BF has some serious health problems and I kept waking up because of his issues.
Good news from my friend Yvonne: her cat did not break a toe, but had a torn nail. This cat has enough health issues, so I know Yvonne was relieved.
Today, one of my nephews is 7 and a coworker gave birth to a baby girl.
A wonderful day!
