Today I…

  • Woke up at 5 am for no good reason and couldn’t fall back asleep.
  • Walked on the treadmill because my weight gain is beginning to dismay me.
  • Packed a very nice lunch and then realized I had a lunch meeting, so stuck it in the fridge where I will probably forget it for tomorrow.
  • Lost all motivation when I got to work, which is precisely where I need it most.
  • Had a very nice lunch meeting.
  • Met with my boss and talked about a lot of exciting, hard, problematic things (not all the same things, but still, all those emotions), all whilst getting kicked by the Tiniest Capen, which is more than a little distracting.
  • Posted another Vendors Drive Me Batty screed over at Attempting Elegance.
  • Sent out a raft of emails to the library staff that, quite likely, made precisely no one happy.
  • Looked at my to-do list, considered my lack of answers or creative solutions to any of the problems outlined there, and thought about crying.
  • Looked at the strategic plan draft and felt the same lack of creative energy, and just… gave up.

So… I’m going home. I’m going to make popcorn, and I’m going to pet the dog, and I’m going to not think about this shit for 14 hours. I’ll try again tomorrow. Sometimes, trying again tomorrow is the most heroic thing you can do.
