I hate having just a shitty memory.
I logged in at 9AM sharp to start working. I fortunately remembered this after working for at least a half hour; then taking a break to make breakfast as I was hungry so fried up some eggs and made sandwiches ( left one for my kid); then go back to organized the tasks -
I am grateful for the calendar reminder -
I was there by 10:30.
It was a good day but I honestly felt mentally foggy today. ONe of those days so I spent time catching up on administrative tasks that are not a mentally heavy lift but just take TIME to get done; things like filing, organizing email, updating templates with recent regulatory changes that needed to be all contracts. I knocked off a number of things on my task list ( oh and signed two contracts which had been percolating and finalized today)- so yeah; a good day.
I had awoken at 4am on Sunday morning and never went back to sleep and between that and the prior Thu night being up super late I think I need to catch up on sleep
I was so glad a friend I spoke with blew me off ( he forgot) - which was ok- I forgot about plans we had talked of LAST week and recalled after.
I kinda love that I have a couple ADHD friends as we get it and don't take it personally and forgive each other!!
So when I called to see if our plan to meet for a bit tonight was on- he had clearly forgotten the conversation a week ago to just re-schedule for this Tue- and that I would find some suggestions of where to meet and send an email. He clearly never read my email.
HE told me he's been really distracted and busy with family- his kid is with him-
My friend was a coworker who got canned even before I did at one place;
He was trying to recruit me to work at the new company he had been hired at- and it was too far of a commute and i wasn't excited by reading about what the company was doing so turned that down.
He also has gorgeous eyes and is a very handsome man but as I worked with him I ignored any attraction whatsoever. Not that it was not there
He obviously was attracted to me- and evidenced at the Christmas party-
A VP; The comptroller a couple execs...and I was hanging with that small group and they were clear I could continue with them... but here is the thing... I am a NON DRINKER for the most part- and they are HEAVY drinkers clearly.
But I am not interested in a heavy drinker He might not normally be but seemed to me based on the amount of alcohol his body was quite comfortable with his is a regular drinker to me....
so NO GO even when we are no longer working together.
That was a decision long ago...
So here is my lament-
I scheduled a medical appointment for one kid that falls the same day as a Professional Conference I am attending that my workplace is paying for. (They would have paid for hotel but it is a reasonable drive so I want to go home and drive back- Its a two day conference in a nearby city. NOT unreasonable drive).
So I have to move that appointment tomorrow.
We will have an hour and a half.
I so love when hanging with easygoing folks without huge egos who don't have the need to control every decision or be in on every decision- but where it is a real give or take.
So it will be fun to catch up with my friend.
