Ugh ... today was one of those brutishly long days that just didn't seem like it would ever end. Nothing necessarily bad happened, but no matter how many different items I crossed off my list, there would be another one waiting.
The work day was almost entirely free of meetings (a big rarity these days), so I spent most of it doing busy work that needed to be done but I just couldn't normally find the time to. So by the time 5 o'clock rolled around, I'd been staring at a computer screen all day, having thought through a gazillion small issues, which was ultimately satisfying but also exhausting.
Day didn't end with work, though. I made myself go to the gym for an hour, then to the gas station (which just always seems like a chore, I don't know why), then across Richmond to the FedEx facility to pick up my replacement phone. Once I got home I had to finish trimming the strip of grass between the sidewalk and street that I couldn't finish yesterday, then inside to cook and eat dinner, then transfer all my contacts & pictures off the old phone, and then some more work, and etc.
Finally, finally, everything that can't wait until tomorrow is done, and now I have just enough energy to vent in a blog post before collapsing into bed.
