I had a blog post half ready for today. It needed to be edited and a few things had to be added. I was all set to do that last night... Until I got home and realised I was locked out of my apartment.
Let me start from the beginning; I gave up on my morning workouts (it's so cold out that an extra hour in a warm bed is important to me), so I've been going to the gym on my hour-long lunch break.
My gym pass is on my keychain.
Yesterday, I went to the gym on my lunch, threw my keychain in my gym bag, did my workout, showered and went back to work.
I had intended to do some grocery shopping after work, so when work was finished, I grabbed my wallet and left my gym bag at work (if you think I'm carrying a gym bag plus heavy grocery bags, you're nuts. Plus, I had clean clothes for another workout in my gym bag).
I did my grocery shopping, got home then fished through my pocket for my keys.
The keys that I left at work.
I called Andrew. For that brief moment, I totally forgot that on Tuesday nights he teaches cadets for the Royal Canadian Air Force. Luckily for me, he said he could come home and let me in. I'd just have to wait.
So wait I did.
I ended up getting into my apartment an hour and half later than usual. It's not a big deal, I know. But it threw my evening off and I just wanted to watch New Girl and The Mindy Project (both of which were epic) and shut my brain off.
Oh, and as I was in the shower last night, putting shampoo in my hand to lather my hair with (yes, I took two showers yesterday. I didn't wash my hair at the gym), I realized I left my bodywash in the gym shower. Then I realized I was lathering my body - not my hair - with the shampoo. Sigh.
So instead of getting a real post, today you get this rant about how I'm an idiot.
Does your day get thrown off by being forgetful?
