I seriously considered calling in sick when I woke up this morning. Not because of any symptoms of illness- simply because my bed was so warm and comfortable and I so wanted several more hours of sleep. I told myself that I've been at this job for over a year and never once taken a sick day. I decided what I would say to my supervisor when I called her. But in the end, I got out of bed and got dressed and came into work.
I think my instincts were trying to help me out, though, because I really don't want to be here today. People are getting stuck in horrible traffic and missing appointments, important meetings are happening in various places (but never where the people who are supposed to be attending first think they are), every time I try to make progress on a non-telephone-related task, someone calls flustered and annoyed to try to reach a person who's not in the office, or to ask me questions about things that have never been brought to my attention. It's not a morning of easy. And I'm not in receptionisty mood.
Ok, think of good things:
- Receiving a mix CD from elf_owl
- The four consecutive long weekends I have coming up
- Being almost finished with December shopping
- Cute nice boys who play piano
- Hot chocolate available at the press of a button
