Monday Grievances

I swear, people must think I lie about the stuff that happens to me.  And it always happens on a Monday! Hence the title.  I didn't intend for my "Grievances" to always be on Monday's, because things happen to me all day everyday, but it just seems to work that way.  Anyway it all began when I woke up at 8:30am because I forgot to set my alarm last night.  I was too wrapped up in the finale of the Real Housewives of Atlanta and the Watch What Happens Live after show with Kim & Kroy and NeNe Leakes face cookies, that I completely forgot to check my alarm before dozing off.  So of course when I finally do roll out of bed, my grandmother is in the bathroom.  After waiting for her to get out, I go turn on the shower and get in.  Since I was in a rush, I just jumped in not realizing that the water was about -15 degrees.  After yelping like a new born puppy, I fix the water and try to relax.  Once I was done, I turned off the water and opened the sliding door of the shower, only to have done it too forcefully so that it caused the shampoo bottle above me to fall directly on my forehead.  At this point I already know it's going to be one of those days.

I get my yogurt, my Kashi oatmeal cookies and off I went.  Never mind that I forgot my actual lunch and know now that I will have to spend money I don't have.  Did I mention I got laid off and in two weeks will be on unemployment?  Well if I didn't, now you know and understand why I can't afford to spend money on meaningless luxuries, you know like food.  After climbing up mountains of still unplowed snow in my neighborhood, I made it to the train, only to wait for about 15 mins in the freezing cold.  Thankfully when the train finally got there it was the 5, which is the train I need.  Usually the 5 runs express so I always have to transfer, so this was a treat.  And as luck would have it I stood in front of the couple that clearly looked like they were going to the Court House on this fine breezy morning, so when they got up on the concourse I had a seat.  Morning- 5, Me -2!  I pulled out my Kindle, which for some magical reason had no issues this morning, but then of course I had this guy in front of me who was having a conversation with his buddy...who only happened to be sitting about 4 seats away from him.  At this point I figured, let me just close my eyes and rest.  But then I remembered that video of the guy sleeping on the subway and the rat crawling up his leg.  Closing my eyes was out of the question!

As I got off the train I decided that after months and months of not doing so, today I would be having Starbucks!  I walked in after so long of not going there, and wouldn't you know it!  Now they have a Skinny Caramel Macchiato.  So of course I got a GRANDE! After standing on this line for what felt like forever, I finally put in my order.  I remembered that I had money in the top left hand pocket of my coat.  What I didn't realize was that I had about 17 dollars worth of change in there as well.  So when I took out my cash, all the change came flying out with it.  I was so embarrassed, I threw almost all the change in the their tip jar, got my receipt and walked to the pick up station.  It wasn't even 10:30am yet and already this was my day.

Thankfully nothing else has happened that's blog worthy, but considering all that did happen, I think I'm good for the entire week.  But then again, they do say the first day of the week sets you up for how the rest of the week is going to be.  So here's hoping I don't lose my mind before the week is out or that I atleast have a nice bottle of Wine to go with it.  So how's your Monday going?

Happy Blogging All!
