TGIF man, amiright? The end of the day yesterday was one of those days I wanted to just curl up in a corner and cry, but more on that in a minute. First off, it's the last day of our This and That Summer Trend challenge week. Today is pastel or neon. I more or less went for pastel as I have virtually no neon in my closet. I love what I've seen other bloggers do with the neon trend but I just haven't been able to get on board with it. However, I chose my bright pink bag today, closest thing to neon I actually own and probably the closest thing I will own. So this outfit is really more about the pastel!
So back to my day yesterday. It was going along just fine and then my boss had to go to one of our clinic sites. This isn't unusual as she is the director of facilities for several clinics in our organization. We were expecting a delivery for the 2nd floor construction project in my building, but she said she knew I could handle it. So I'm doing my thing and getting ready to shut down for the day and realize the delivery hadn't shown up yet and like magic, the front desk called to let me know that the delivery guy was here. Better late than never I guess. So I said, have him meet me up here and I will show him where to put it. Now mind you it's a giant box and weighs about 300 pounds. I go to the elevator to wait for the guy and it's taking FOREVER. This is not a good sign. He finally gets off the elevator. Without the box. It won't fit. At all. Crap. So I called my boss - who always answers her cell phone, but apparently not when it's important - I could not reach her. Now I'm officially on overtime at this point. A half hour later I finally get in touch with my boss and we figure out a temporary solution after I spent the entire time flustered, looking like an idiot in front of patients and doing everything I can not to just break down and sob. And let me just say the delivery guy was kind of a prick about the whole thing. At least I get paid overtime.
After I got home I had a well deserved beer and relaxing bath and then everything was better. But seriously. There is a reason I am just an admin - I do not do crisis management very well at all!!
Anyway. It's Friday and I'm much happier today! You will want to make sure to check back here later today or possibly tomorrow - I will be posting my one year anniversary "favorite things" giveaway! Yes you heard me right, it's Beth's Favorite Things, ala Oprah. I can't wait to share the fun things I have for you! And I also can't wait to share some thoughts on one year of blogging - man time flies!
