Day 147: When Days Don’t Go the Way That You Planned

There are some days when you really wish you’d stayed in bed.  Today was close to being one of those days.  First, I woke up with a head cold.  I don’t feel awful but I’ve spent the day sneezing and blowing my nose.  I have gone through a lot of Kleenex.  Second, we were awarded a bid by one of the cities and I got all of the paperwork printed, signed by my boss, and I notarized it all.  I scanned and emailed it all to the purchasing agent at the city and about 3 hours later, I dropped off the FedEx with the wet ink copies…which is what they call the originals.  10 minutes after I dropped it off, the purchasing agent calls and one of the forms had the wrong bid number on it so I have to get the correct copy filled out, signed, and then notarize it.  Then I’ll scan it to the city and send another FedEx for a single piece of paper.  He had three hours to call me but waited until after I’d sent the FedEx.  Okay, I can deal with that but I don’t really want to right now.  I’m trying to get one more signature for my safety meeting sign-in sheet and he’s playing hard to get.  I have to have it sent in before I leave and I have to be out of here in about forty minutes.  I have someone’s approved expense report to scan to the corporate office.  I also have a printer issue that I need to get handled and another stack of safety forms to send to the transportation department before I leave.  And then I need to rush home, feed and water my feral and stray critters, take my medications, eat dinner, and be on a SARK call at 7:30.  So, I’m going to say good-bye for now so I can rush around and get all of this accomplished.  Oh, and my husband has made homemade cheese and onion enchiladas so there is a bright light at the end of this tunnel!
