There are two weeks out of the year when life gets put on hold and everything revolves around one five day long event. That's right, the Lilly Pulitzer Warehouse Sale. Warehouse sale = Big deal at work and we all rally together and volunteer our time to staff the sale so you wonderful consumers can have a fabulous shopping experience. While I enjoy this event and the happiness it brings to our shoppers, it takes up a lot of my day. On Wednesday I start work at 5am (when the sale starts) and work until around lunch time, and then go back to the office to make sure things are done there. Even though it is only Monday I am overflowing with stress trying to make sure everything gets done so there are no problems when I am out of the office.
Throw in the fact that I am looking for a new place to live come August and must call property managers and realtors during business hours + trying to get all my work done = today was a VERY long day. Too long to have time at the end of the day for a run.
In the past I would have beaten myself up for something like this. But not today. Maybe I am finally learning to make everything fit into my life. Or maybe I am just too tired. But whatever it is, I made sure my work got done and then went home and poured myself a very nice cold glass of wine.
Running will have to wait until tomorrow. Life is happening today.
