Shoulda Stayed in Bed

You know you've had one - one of those days you should have just stayed in bed. Well, of course, part of my problem is that I was up late last night writing so I slept in a bit this morning. So of course, my entire morning routine was thrown off by my slumber. So I rushed to get ready for work then headed outside to play ball with Bogey then dashed back in to fix me a protein shake for breakfast. Downed the protein shake, grabbed my stuff and headed to work.

Got to work and set about generating and printing a training guide I wrote that is being QA'd today (quality control analysis). Set the 200+ document to print, had a conversation with the Business Analyst for the product, then was about to go to the printer and pick up the doc that I needed for a 10:00 meeting and realized I had never taken off my "playing ball with Bogey" shoes and put on my work shoes.

This was not good.

We are fairly casual at work but I think bright blue and white neoprene Nike hiking sandals might be pushing the envelop. I panicked. I couldn't go through an entire day wearing business casual and hiking sandals. And I had a meeting in 30 minutes!

So I did what any red-blooded American woman would do - I hauled ass to Walmart and bought a pair of shoes. Managed to complete the entire transaction in 13 minutes. That has got to be a new record for shoe-buying. They are kinda cute but not overly comfortable, but then what do you expect for $13. So I figure I'll just leave them at my desk......just in case.

So - you ever had one of those moments?

LOL re the shoes! I hate days like that. At least I don't have to worry about rushing to a job, but when I sleep late I always feel like my whole day is screwed up.

Remind me to tell you about the time I took my kid to school without shoes on his feet.

Must run in the family. lol I once went to work wearing black shoes that were not a match. One of the heels was even higher than the other. You would have thought I would have noticed that there was a limp in my step. LOL Mom

Tori - yeah, sleeping late is great but definitely has its down side. :)

Jana DeLeon said...

OMG, Jaye! You have definitely GOT to share that one - too funny!

Jana DeLeon said...

LOL Mom - must be inherited.

I think I just as many shoes in a drawer in my office as I do in my closet at home. But I tend to have the opposite problem - since I wear my comfy shoes to work, then change into the cute/office-appropriate ones when I get in, I tend to have no good "going-out" shoes at home. It's made for some challenging packing on more than one occasion. Glad you have a backup pair, Jana!

Backup shoes are always a good thing!!

Ah Leah - you have a New York shoe collection. :) During my one and only training trip there, I wore hiking sandals to work and carried my "good" shoes in my bag. Definitely a must for all that walking!

Jana DeLeon said...

Yep Wendy, that's what I'm thinking. I'm not going to get caught without dress shoes again - now if they match is a whole other story. lol
