Tuesdays are not good

I don't know what's up with me & Tuesdays, but lately we do not get along. So far this Tuesday is much better than the last two, but I still have a cloud hanging over my head. I had a meeting uptown today, and it ended around lunchtime, and I had to go to the bank to get some US $ for my trip. Unfortunately my ex works in the same building as my bank, and it being lunchtime, I was running the risk of bumping into him. Thankfully I didn't, but the possibility of running into him set me on edge. I was glad to be out of there and back to my normal surroundings.

I just had someone interrupt my lunch to ask me a question about something I knew nothing about, and they looked at me like I am supposed to know everything. I'll have to make sure to go interrupt this person's lunch tomorrow and ask them to discuss class C networks with me. I'm on lunch, dammit! Have some respect!

I started packing on Sunday for my trip. I continued last night, thankfully having tried a few things on before blindly putting them in the suitcase and getting there only to realize they don't fit. So much for bringing the nice summer suit. I'm trying to be frugal to allow room for shopping, but there are also certain things I have to take with me. For instance, I have to pack my hair dryer, seeing as how my bf doesn't have much of a need to own one of those. Have to pack shorts in case it does get hot, and other things in case it doesn't. I think I may have shrunk a pair of pants in the wash yesterday but I'm not positive, and that is bothering me. I hate following directions on an item of clothing only to have it backfire. If you do what you're supposed to do, why be punished?

Anyway, the packing continues tonight & tomorrow night. Spreading it out allows me to remember things I might otherwise forget and I can be more discerning. I won't have time on Thursday night to do a whole lot as I have to work until likely 10pm getting everything done before I go. It will be nice not to travel with a laptop this time. I decided not to take it with me, I really need the separation from work and I can use John's PC for my checking email, blogging, etc.

3 more sleeps to go.

I'm not a fan of Tuesdays either. Mondays, you know in advance that they are going to suck; you have the whole week ahead of you. Wednesdays, you're half way there. Thursday means tomorrow is Friday and Fridays are always better. Tuesdays, you still have the week ahead of you and not much to look forward to. Maybe we should implement a Tuesday evening movie date or something.

On the up side, you're going to California!
