When I went to visit my parents on Sunday, they sent me home with a piece of pineapple upside down cake – it’s kind of becoming one of my dad’s signature dishes and it’s pretty tasty. I finally got around to eating it today as part of my lunch, and I ended up being thankful for the extra sustenance later in the day.
I ended up working from home, simply because I’ve been so darn tired lately and getting home around 1am last night/this morning (ugh, yesterday morning at this point) didn’t help. I left my house to go to our volunteer chapter at around 4:30, thinking I’d have ample time to get there. NOPE. Alllll the traffic happened. It was like rush hour traffic on crack, and it took me over an hour to get there. By the time I got in, set up my computer and the materials I was presenting, gathered the orientation packets, checked in with another volunteer and then went downstairs to collect my new trainees, I was already beat. The orientation went well, and the new trainees asked a lot of questions (which I love – really!), and I got to show them how our disaster texting system works in real-time, meaning there was a text out for a team leader to go on a call.
We ended up getting someone else to go, but since the team was showing up as my trainees were leaving, I decided to go with them. Secretly, I was trying to evaluate whether or not to promote someone, so I did have an ulterior motive. By the time we went, handled the call, came back, and finished up paperwork, it was nearly 11:30. So from around 1 pm until after midnight, when I got home, I didn’t eat anything.
Current status: starved and tired, and just generally dreading tomorrow morning. I feel like my days are my nights and my nights are my days. I’m all sorts of discombobulated.
So now here I sit, trying to figure out what I can scrounge up for dinner. Thank goodness I had that piece of cake with lunch; I’m not sure I would’ve made it so long otherwise!
