One of Those Days

Today is Monday.  Enough said.  Now, the day itself didn't start off badly. I had a great weekend full of recovering from my horrendous cold from Hell. I feel much better now. Work today went fine. It was a easy day with only two classes, plus I got to leave an hour early. This was because I had to go to the Board of Education to hand in some papers plus stop by my work agency and figure out how to set up a new bank account.

Didn't sound too bad.

Well, I caught the train and got to Yorii at 3:34. Walked to my agency, filled out the bank information, found out the Post Office Bank (yes, there is a bank in the post office. Don't ask, because I don't know.) closes at four o'clock (it was 3:57), got in the car, zoomed over to the P.O., opened an account, missed my 4:20 train, ran to the B.O.E. to hand in my paper work, was missing some paper work, ran back to the agency to get the paper work, missed my 4:40 train, ran back to the B.O.E., turned in the paperwork, barely caught my 5:06 train.


Then I got back to Ogawa. I went to get my bike in the lot where I always park. Couldn't find my bike right away. Maybe someone moved it...? Anyway, I found it. As I was unlocking it and freeing it from the myriad of others bikes when I heard...a noise...

Have you ever set up lots and lots and lots of dominoes end on end, all in a row, and then pushed one over. I have...except it was with bikes. Yeah. That was fun.

Because I believe in karma and treat others as you would yourself and all that jazz, I picked all the bikes back up. And finally made it home. Where my ah-mazing husband had laundry in the washer, dinner cooking, and dishes going. I am in love.

So I guess today wasn't so bad after all. :)
Pin It!


  1. NZ has a really good bank that is in all the post offices here. It's nice to have it all in one place.

    And that sounds like an uber sucky day. At least Karl was waiting for you at the end of it!

  2. Good for you, picking up all the bikes you knocked down. Way to be respectful of other people even when you're having a crappy day.

    Also I hope I find a husband like yours.
