Desperate Working Mommas
Your one-stop site for fanatical television snarking, questionable political analysis, occasional attempts to address the parenting issues facing working mothers, and halfhearted promises to stop obsessing about the entertainment industry, already! Oh, not to mention the random bitching and moaning. There's always that.
Monday, December 19, 2005
It's just another manic Monday.

Wow! Have you ever had one of those Monday mornings when you are just ON FIRE, like, rushing around your cubicle in a virtual organizational frenzy, cleaning out drawers, filing away old dockets, setting tasks for the day and goals for the week? And when you check your email there are no frantic requests from your boss asking where in the hell that document you were supposed to have to her by Friday ended up, because it sure as shooting was NOT in her Inbox as requested? And you remembered to pack a lunch-- midday snack included!-- so there it sits on your desk all nice and tight, and you glance at it every so often with a relieved smile because you know you will not have to scrounge the snack machine in the lounge for something relatively nutritional to eat? And you remembered socks, a sports bra, and BOTH of your running shoes so you can go jogging during your lunch break with your running partner? And your hair is clean and healthy and totally NOT frizzy and looking stylishly cute, and you are quite frankly rocking a bit of the sexy with the volume and curl and whatnot, even if you do say so yourself? And your pants are clean and ironed and your boots match your watch and your socks match, er... each other? Have you?! Huh?! HAVE YOU?!

Yes? Really?

Oh.

What's that like?

The boots totally matched this morning baby. And everybody knows that if your boots match, you are golden. Nobody will be checking your frizzes because they will be distracted by the glory of the boots.

I tried *so hard* to be "on" today, you know? I washed, ironed and defuzzed the pants, blouses and sweaters over the weekend and was feeling pretty proud of myself that I would look so put together and whatnot... and when I get here, I look down (and although I am wearing two black shoes (which match the outfit), there is a big old smear of car salt on my pants, and the continental breakfast that was set out at a meeting room in a nearby facility for the execs here is pretty slim, and it's too late to make any changes to that, even though I stopped by earlier and checked to make sure everything was in order over there...

But, if someone else tells me how it is to have a Monday like what you described, I'll totally let you know.

I certainly wouldn't know what that's like.

Sigh.

What's funny is that this morning I was going to post on my blog a quote I'd found about how much mornings suck, but then I didn't because my morning sucked too much to even have time to post. And then I read this which was like the COMPLETE OPPOSITE.

So, obviously, I cannot relate AT ALL.

I work from HOME and can't get my shizzle together. How sad is THAT?

oh my word. I mean - I haven't had one of those days since the baby was born. I'd kill for one, though - totally beats my shitty Monday!

I absolutely have no idea what that would be like. Not even one, smooth little bit.

I have NEVER...EVER...experienced that.

Running shoes? What are those?

I have slippers that look like red tennis shoes.
