For a number of reasons, today kinda sucks. It could be worse (it could be SO much worse), but it’s not what I wish for when I look forward to my weekends. I’m working, John’s working, we’ve been camped out at the dining room table for most of the day, sitting across from each other with our heads buried in our laptops, and that’s not really the part that kinda sucks. Mostly, it’s exhaustion. Roxy had another seizure last night, around 11pm, and this time, neither of us could go back to sleep until after 1am. Out the window went our plans (my plan, anyway – not sure if that was John’s plan, too) to run this morning. Instead, we slept until nearly ten. Not good sleep. Woke up feeling like we hadn’t slept at all, and since we have no milk in the house, I went to Dunkin Donuts to pick up breakfast. (Yes, no milk = bagels. And Starbucks. It does not equal go to the store and buy milk since you have to leave the house either way, dumbass.) The Dunkin Donuts in our tiny town is the WORST Dunkin Donuts. This morning was it – I’m never going to that one again. This time, before ten am on a Saturday, they were out of plain bagels, out of plain cream cheese, and they didn’t give me the hash browns I paid for, even though they repeated the order back to me three times AND they’re on the receipt. They’ve screwed up our order lots of times, they make terrible coffee, and they even manage to screw up iced chai. John tells me (and I know this – I’ve been to others) that this Dunkin Donuts is not representative of the whole company, but still. This one? Dead to me. That, on top of no sleep, on top of the half-hour wait at Starbucks (It may have only been 10 minutes, but it felt longer. At least they got my order right.), all BEFORE breakfast, with no run to clear my head or make me feel virtuous for exercising when I’m eating a not-healthy breakfast, followed by WORKING makes today not the greatest Saturday.
Also, my head hurts.
Also also, I might feel better if I’d showered this morning. I swear, that’s happening soon.
Also also also, I didn’t like the book I just finished (finally), The Emperor’s Children, so that may have been contributing to this mood. I couldn’t even escape into my book!
