Just as the sun is crawling over the front field, I have to weave my way downstairs to my favorite coffee shop. Luckily I am always the first customer. And luckily they always get my order just right.
Then, before I even realize what day it is, I have an early morning meeting with the CEO of our company. We almost always meet in the hot tub. Luckily he keeps a pretty loose dress code around here. And luckily he is really cute.
Then, once I am caffeinated and have a decent grip on the day ahead, I have to battle gridlock. Chaos ensues when the chicken coop doors open and the guineas mix with the hens and and roosters. Sometimes I try to sort out the conflict; other times I tell them it's their problem. Yesterday someone filed a complaint in HR over abuse of the clear water in the wading pool. It's never ending drama around here. Luckily, I have lots of garden hoses to refill that wading pool. And luckily we also have a pond.
Then we have the geese. They are the lobbyists around here: Noisy, overfed, and in my face when I could be doing so many other far more productive jobs. Luckily, four of them are afraid of me, And luckily, the fifth one loves me more than life itself.
I try to stay calm on my morning commute. I try to work through the obvious difficulties and focus on the tasks at hand while maintaining a healthy perspective. You know, see both the forest and the trees.
Luckily, I have the sweetest coworkers and am surrounded by beauty.
And luckily of course I never really have to commute anywhere.
It's a tough job, and I am so happy it's mine.
Linking up with Mama Kat today.
