I had set a goal for today, to tidy up a few items around the office and leave by 5. I would be home around 5:30, whip up something for dinner, clean, do laundry, finish packing by around 10 and relax to watch the Olympics. That was the goal.
Reality, though, has a funny way of intruding. Those items around the office never got tidy up. Instead, I spent the morning developing time estimates for work on applications I know nothing about. The leaving at 5 instead turned in to 7:30 as I spent the evening working with someone on a project that honestly did need the time investment. As for the last bit, it’s 11:15 PM and I’m still doing laundry while the Olympics drone on in the background.
Damn, reality bites sometimes.
