Some mornings you just wake up and you might as well have stayed in bed. You might as well have tripped out of bed, face planted into the nearby duchess type table and knocked yourself out cold for the day. Yup. Like that.

What really happened was I was all set to go to the gym with my sister. I set my alarm for 6.15 and went to sleep. I woke up at 7.15 to the alarm. Darn scrolling thingie must have skipped over an hour. I sent her a message saying tomorrow, I’ve overslept. I started flicking through emails and fb. I dozed off! Without an alarm and slept through to 9.15!! Whoooops.

So late to work I arrived to be told that this was the week they would like me to start doing more hours. And the advertising pages. Which are due tomorrow because of the mid-week public holiday. Whoooops. By this point my determination to quit caffeine was wavering to say the least! But at least I had three extra hours sleep under my belt.

Bit by bit messages came in, requests were made, emails were sent and my day was going from bad {but amusing} to worse. When I left for lunch I hit my really, super wide opening car door into another car in the car park and was subsequently told off by the owner. No matter how nicely I explained that obviously it was a mistake, I would give them my number and that I checked for marks she didn’t want to hear it. I was the door basher. Full stop.

It went on, it went up and down but ultimately I figured I’d cut my losses and try to enjoy myself. Because why not? The rest had been a write off anyway. And it worked out ok. The day ended, I got some good news in my inbox, I tackled some things that needed to be done and my Hubby was ok to have left over pizza from the weekend for dinner. Things sort of balanced out.

Off I went to bed to try again today. Seems good so far.

      I still drink decaf. So coffee for sure! xox

    I gave up coffee last Wednesday. I’m so calm. It’s freaking everyone out. I have realized how much I was drinking, starting with five shots before lunch!

      It’s amazing, right? I feel so much more zen without it. My levels were OFF the charts.

    Sometimes you have days like that. I can’t believe you are a door basher. I just didn’t see that side of you. Rachel x

    • Melissa Walker Horn

      I didn’t mean to be! Sigh. I’m so ashamed to be a door basher. 😉

  • Oh, I know those days. Still want to smack the car owner though. Or open your door even harder, give her something to really whine about! 🙁

    Hope today’s heaps better.

    • Melissa Walker Horn

      HA! No need, I’m sure her grumpy mood made her day worse than mine. Today was great, busy, but great. Thank you. xox

  • Oh, no is your car OK? Damn that lady for being in the way! 🙂
    Somedays you are the statue, & some days you are the pigeon. Tommorow you will be the pigeon, or at least one of those statues of a girl holding an umbrella.

    • Melissa Walker Horn

      Car more than fine. Hers and mine. Here’s to being at least an umbrella girl statue in the future. 🙂

      I know, right!? 😉

    Hi! Just found your blog & been reading for a while now. It’s quite entertaining. Will check it out more when I’m next at work (always wise to utilise free internet). I love reading local blogs but didn’t catch where you are form though, assuming Brisbanish? Anyway back to the original post, if that’s the worse thing that happens to that lady this week, she should be grateful. Don’t feel bad.

    • Melissa Walker Horn

      Thanks Rach. Haha. I love that line about the free internet. I’m in Gympie. But I head to Brisbane often enough.
