Yesterday, I locked my keys in the car – the 1993 Subaru I’m driving because my car has been in the shop since October 15, 2007. Yes, again, that was since OCTOBER 15, 2007. Luckily, my brother has a spare and lives right up the street.
I am proud to say that I did not shirk my responsibilities this week even though I wanted to more than ever. Every morning upon waking I came up with at least three excuses to give my boss as to why I wouldn’t be making it to work that day. But I went. And even while sitting anxiously in traffic, almost turning around to go back home more than once per drive, I did not. I kept going.
I am happy to say that it is Friday and now I get to relax. …and do some laundry.
note: I am already working on an excuse for Monday.
