Today was funny. It started out with a downpour of rain and then got sunny. (No, I did not mean for that to rhyme).
When I got to work the lights were out in the office of the school. Everything was dark and none of my colleagues were there. Great, I thought - this is gonna be another one of THOSE days. I soon found out everyone in the office was out sick or away at meetings. Great, I thought again. So there I sat all alone. I groaned and I grimaced. Boohoo, poor me. The phones rang off the hook. The number of students that usually filter through the office doubled from any normal day. Paperwork piled up, while I picked up the slack for those who were out sick, and the thought of getting any of my own work done fell by the wayside. I felt as if I worked a whole week in one day.
When I called one of the other offices in our building to see how the other administrative assistant was doing, she was having one of those days too. We both just laughed. I then realized this changed everything about how I felt. It felt good to laugh off the frustration and insanity and realize it was just one of those days and it will soon be over. I smiled and laughed and realized things weren't really that bad after all. Then it occurred to me:
