For those of you who are like me, today is Wednesday. (And yeah, Wednesday is usually an Outside the Box day to post, but I have nothing writerly to say, so here I am.) Knowing the day of the week this week is especially difficult because tomorrow is a holiday in the U.S., so it feels like a Friday.
So close on the heels of the time change, this week is a total clusterfuck for figuring out the day and the time. Make sure to cut yourself some slack this week. It's not your fault. You're stuck in this weird timewarp thing.
Personally, I had to remember to send my timesheet to the office last night because I usually send it out Wednesday night, but payroll is today instead of Thursday because of the holiday. Which was something the office had to deal with, shifting the payroll day and all.
Poor Hubs was on the phone yesterday making plans for things that have to get done and he started talking about getting together with the person on Thursday when it struck him that's Thanksgiving. Oops and apologies to the other party. It'll have to wait until next week.
We have some stuff we have to get done today, because otherwise, it will either have to wait until next week or we'll have to venture out into the shopping orgy on Friday to complete our errands. And nobody wants that. Plus, one of the places we have to go will be closed on Friday, because it's not just a one day holiday for businesses that don't sell things people might put under the tree. Which is why my office is closed until Monday.
I'll still be working. I have a project the big boss handed over yesterday and I'd like to make some headway on it before the office reopens on Monday. My part has to be done before they can do their part and all that.
Not working a normal job certainly doesn't help with the whole 'what the hell day is it?' thing. Writing and spreadsheeting can be done anywhere between when I wake up to when I call it a day. And it frequently is done outside of office hours. So holidays don't really make that big a difference in the flow. They still screw up what day it is, though. Blerg.
So, consider this post a kind of public service thing. It is WEDNESDAY. What you do with that information is up to you and whether you hold it in your head? Well, by lunch I may be back to thinking it's Friday again. :shrug:
