More Things I Found.
It's become apparent that I'm more scattered these days than ever before. I think I need a personal assistant, but one who can tolerate my mood swings, coffee addiction, and propensity for making up my own curse words. Maybe someone from California Closets would be a good place to start, judging by the crap I found this morning:
Things I found in my workbag: Two iPod shuffles (both of which I thought I lost months ago), a bottle of test strips with Code 22 (like every bottle I’ve opened in the last three months), a TubeGuard, the cord that connects my meter to the computer for blood sugar downloads, the electric bill (whoa), a moleskin journal that I drag everywhere with me, and one lonely penny from 1994.
Things I found in my car: Three discarded test strips, two Elbow cds, and a center console crammed with Dunkin Donuts napkins. (Does that sound like the 12 Days of Christmas to anyone but me? No? Bueller?)
Things I found in the grocery bag: Ahem.
Things I found in my email inbox that I forgot about: An email from my mom asking me to confirm that I’m alive. (Whoops – sorry, Mom. I’m alive!)
Things I found hiding between the shower curtain and the liner when I climbed into the shower this morning: Siah. I yelled. She purred. It was an odd scene.
Things I found in the work parking lot: One small bird who was trying desperately to get inside of a discarded coffee cup. I watched for a minute to make sure it wasn’t stuck, and laughed when I realized it was trying to snuggle up to it. Apparently this bird didn't dig yesterday's snow extravaganza!
Things I found in my coffee cup: A tea bag. That was unexpected, and proved how tired I was when I was trying to get my caffeine fix this morning.
Things I found in my bed this morning: One fat Abby cat hiding under a pile of blankets and a rogue Dexcom receiver floating around.
Things I found funny: This link from SomethingAwful - Real Books That Look Like Photoshops. The "Barkley vs. Godzilla" made me laugh so hard my nose threatened to fly off my face. If you can look at these books without laughing, you are way more mature than I am.
Things I found out: That I am in dire need of a vacation!
