Hi, my name is Meredith and I'm a slacker. Hi, Meredith! No, really. Work was crazy slow on Monday and Tuesday, then Wednesday and today have been insanely busy. Yesterday I wasn't even able to leave and get lunch. Yes, I could have left, but by the time I came up for air, it was 3:30. It just seemed silly to get lunch that late. However, today was much like yesterday, but today I left at 3:30 to get lunch and brought it back to my desk as I continued to work.
Let's rewind a few hours. For whatever reason, I just couldn't fall asleep last night. I was playing Draw Something until well after midnight. Ugh. I hate when I can't sleep. So, subsequently, when 5am came around, I wasn't feeling my best. I actually popped right out of bed and turned on the hallway light to prepare for Jason's arrival. But I then got back in bed. :) I texted Jason to see where he was and to let him know I might need to cancel for the day. Ugh, twice in one week. I'm such a slacker.
I went back to sleep and accidentally forgot to set an alarm to wake up. So, at 8:15 when I gingerly rolled over, I freaked out when I saw what time it was!! Granted, I have a pretty open schedule. I can arrive to work any time between 8:30-9:30, so I had some leeway. But I enjoy getting off at 5pm instead of anything later. I felt late though and rushed and my whole morning was thrown off. Plus, I knew I would get ribbing from my boss about it.
Anyway, crazy day.
My new modem came in the mail today. I always have a bit of foreboding when it comes to the installation process of new networking issues, especially when dealing with AT&T. I hooked everything up... and one green light.... two green light..... and.... fail, internet was a red light. I did all that I knew to do, then gave up and contacted AT&T. Arg. I actually contacted them through their chat thingamabob and that worked well... until I got lost connection TWICE! Each time I would have to retell my issues, and go through all the steps. Even though I told them, I've already talked with your coworkers, I'm on this step. But no, they had me run through all the steps again. Grr. By the third time when I lost connection, I figured I could figure it out on my own. Eureka! It finally found whatever magical connection it needed to get me back on the WWW. I was never more happy to see Google!
Now, I should be asleep. I shouldn't be blogging. I should be getting restorative healing while I sleep... but, I'm writing. Writing about nothing in particular. If you're reading today's post, then I know you just love me. As there's no real value here today, folks. Nothing insightful. Nothing witty. Although, I did watch a good movie tonight, "In Time" with Justin Timberlake. Pretty good movie, kinda long, only one bad word that I remember.
I just got majorly distracted playing DrawSomething, so I'd better close for today and get in bed! 5am comes early and Bob and Jason need me to be up and at 'em! Yay, TGIF!!
