Awkward...While fetching coffee for our CFO like a good little 1950's girl, I accidentally terrorized the Starbucks cashier by handing her a piece of paper without saying anything. She turned pale and then gasped, "Oh, it's your order!" with obvious relief. Only then did I realize she had thought it was a hold-up note. Oops.
Awesome...Going to renew my driver's license and health card and encountering the most efficient government worker ever. I was in and out in five minutes...it was like I'd stepped into some kind of amazing alternative bureaucratic universe.
Awkward...Yesterday I went to visit S. at daycare over my lunch hour and gave her my pretty bracelet to play with. She promptly ran to the kitchenette side of the room, lifted the bracelet over her head, and triumphantly smashed it on the floor. All the other toddlers (who had been sitting quietly reading books and playing on the alphabet mats) had to be herded into the sleeping room, so the staff could clean up all the shards of glass. I was mortified.
Awkward...We sometimes foster kittens for the local humane society and took our 5-week old foster baby in for her spay appointment. I had been a little concerned that she seemed small for her age, but in the last week she had developed a nice big belly. She's too young to be pregnant and both of our adult cats are fixed anyway, so I thought she was finally putting on some weight. Um, no.
The animal care co-ordinator called me to say 1) the kitten has a "large worm load" (ew ew eeeewwww!!) and 2) she can't be spayed after all because she hasn't gained enough actual weight. I felt like the cat mother equivalent of this:
Awesome...I made it to the gym for 7 days straight Tuesday-Tuesday (including strength training classes) and I can see definition in my arms again. Now I just need to get my appetite under control.
And that's it...A short list for me today, because I'm heading out for lunch with a good friend, then visiting another with a new baby and maybe hitting up Marble Slab Creamery (with money, don't worry) on the way home. Yay for not working on my birthday!!
