Failing at Monday

Today I failed at Monday. Or, to quote Office Space, I had a case of the Mondays. Big time. Almost to the point of saying, hey I need to go home and just start over again, okay?

I have a routine in the mornings to get myself up, cleaned up, dressed and out the door by a specific time, with my little lunch bag and if needed, workout clothes too. Yes, I’m still not back on morning workout time, one day.

And today, for some odd reason, that little routine all went to shit and I turned up at work later than I wanted and a hot mess. Literally, it was hot outside.

I don’t even know when my Monday started going wrong too, but somewhere between the shower and walking out my door, I managed to do the following:

  • Forget to put on moisturizer. I’m big about skincare too so I don’t even know how this happened. But problem solved, I put it on over my final make up because, as I stood in my hallway trying to decide about whether or not to just put it on or leave immediately for work, I decided to just do it.
  • Run BACK to my apartment to verify I brushed my teeth. Turns out, did not, and thus delayed again. But in the name of good breath, worth it.
  • Verify in my elevator that I put on deodorant. Seriously you guys, I’m batting a thousand today.
  • RUN to the bus stop to catch my bus downtown, which in 75 degree weather and humidity, makes me look dewey, and not in a good way.
  • Forget HALF of my lunch at home in its little containers and thus, creating a less than ideal lunchtime at work.

Oh, and midday result of putting moisturizer on over make-up was HILARIOUS.

To quote Clueless, I looked like a full-on Monet, which means, “From far away, it’s OK, but up close, it’s a big old mess.” Welcome to my face.

I have plans after work too, so hopefully nothing else weird happens today and tomorrow I get a fresh start.

Or at least remember moisturizer because that was a big hot mess.
