I had such a good plan for after work today. I was going to come home and put in a load of laundry, so I would be certain to have a good pair of socks to wear to work tomorrow. While the laundry ran, I would make guacamole for tomorrow’s lunch (I love a guacamole sammich). Since I did not intend to use a recipe, I could then make a Tasty Tuesday blog post. I had plenty of time before my 6:30 rehearsal (for Morning’s at Seven at Ilion Little Theatre). IT! COULD! WORK!
That last bit was a quote from Young Frankenstein, by the way, a very excellent and quotable movie. But I digress. I also wasted about ten minutes looking for a picture of Young Frankenstein I thought I had in my Media Library. I am losing it,
As you may have guessed from the above paragraph, IT! DID! NOT! WORK! Well, I got the laundry in the washer. I got the guacamole made (I don’t know that it was really guacamole, but it involved avocados, so I’ll call it that). Then the dithering began. I checked my email. I messaged a couple of people on Facebook. I made myself a sandwich for supper (it wasn’t good enough to rate the term “sammich”). I looked at the newspaper while I ate it. I was still hungry.
Regular readers know I am trying to lose weight, and I am experiencing some minor success. It has not even been all that painful. Therefore, I am completely flabbergasted that I found myself sitting on my couch, mowing down ginger snaps dipped in whipped topping. Oh, was I shoveling those suckers into the old pie-hole. Once again, I have to say, What the Hell, me?
I put the laundry in the drier and went upstairs to take my shower, utterly disgusted with myself. To add insult to injury, when I was getting dressed for rehearsal, I found a pair of socks perfectly suitable to wear to work tomorrow. I could have skipped the damn laundry!
So here’s my stupid blog post. As I read what I typed, it does not seem the afternoon was as disastrous as it felt (full disclosure: still feels). Never mind. I am going to call this a Bad Attituesday, hit Publish, and drive on, because I have to get ready for rehearsal. Is it really only Tuesday?
