Welcome back to the daily grind folks!
Imagine my surprise when I found out this morning that my blog is on Pinoy Bloggers' Top 10 List! Neat-o! I have no idea how I was voted or what the voting criteria is, but hey, who am I to complain! THANKS! It truly made my Monday morning!
Other than that, Monday was its usual blah-yet-stressful-try-to-play-catch-up self. Mondays are not my happy days because it's just really bogged down. Here's a rundown of how my Monday usual looks (I got the idea from Ms. Pinayhekmi):
7:00-7:15 a.m. The hubs finishes his shower and tells me it's my turn. I wake up. Haul self to bathroom. Shower.
7:15-7:45 a.m. Decide what to wear. Pick out suit and top underneath. Get ready. The news is on. Try to see if anything exciting is going on as I get ready.
7:45-8:05 a.m. Make coffee. Prepare lunch. Get out door. Start car and pick the morning's driving music. Franz Ferdinand it is for today.
8:05-8:50 a.m. Commute to work. Go through 95 South (aka the NJ Turnpike). Connect to the 1-9 Highway (aka Highway to Hell). Get to Jersey City and manuever through crazy traffic. I swear, driving through the streets of Jersey City will be the death of me. Drink coffee as I drive. Park car in lot. Walk to office building.
8:50-8:54 a.m. Climb 6 flights of stairs to office.
8:54-9:15 a.m. Devour breakfast. Usually cereal or oatmeal. Occasionally, indulge in coffee and donut (or croissant) from Dunkin' Donuts (but not the new healthy Kat!) Check e-mail and v-mail.
9:15-1:30 p.m. Court time. Become light-headed as blood-sugar drops around 12:15 pm.
1:30-2:15 p.m. Quickie lunch. Check e-mail and v-mail.
2:15-3:30 p.m. Back to court for rest of calendar.
3:30-5:00 p.m. Desk time! Go over files from the day. Check stuff for tomorrow. Return phone calls/e-mail. Fool around. Shoot the shit with co-workers. Discuss work. Worry about work.
5:00-5:35 p.m. Drive home. Easier than drive to work.
5:35-6:00 p.m. Chill. Watch TV. Greet hubs as he comes home at about 6 pm.
6:oo-7:00 p.m. Prepare dinner (or heat up left overs or order in). More TV in between.
7:00-7:30 p.m. Eat. Pack stuff for band practice. Late for practice.
7:30-8:00 p.m. Drive to studio. Same commute as if going to work, except with slightly less traffic.
8:00-10:00 p.m. Practice with band.
10:00-10:30 p.m. Drive home.
10:30-12 a.m. Relax. Vegetate. Sleep.
I deviated from today's schedule though. Instead of making it to band practice, I had dinner with my cousin who I hardly ever see. So tonight, I met up with my cousin for dinner at 7 pm at Bali Nusa (in Hell's Kitchen). Great food! Even better company! Got home at 10 pm. Am now blogging.
Now, I'm calling it a day!
