Actual conversation with teammate yesterday (RR=Me TM=TeamMate)

TM: so you got the message right?
RR: What message? was it on audix, cell, or home?
TM:Audix - you do check that too don't ya?
RR: Ummmm ok, yeah, I do?
TM: We are going to Waycross (GA) on Tuesday - be there by 1:00.
RR: But....we don't have to be there til Wed!
TM: But we need to prepare
RR:OK - I'll just move everything up to fit it in. BTW - what day is it?
TM: Tuesday.....I told you we need to be there Tuesday!
RR: NO....what day is it TODAY? Tuesday, Thursday, Monday? What is the day today?
TM: Wednesday. Where are you today?
RR: I have no idea. Wait, here's a sign. Oh, I'm in Sebring. Shoot.....why am I here? (LOL) That's right - it's "Suck Up Day".
TM: Where you going next?
RR: Ummm.....*****(customer). Got a fire to put out. What day is it?
TM: Wednesday.
TM: When are you going to **** next?
RR: Ummmmm.....Sunday. Wait is today Thursday?
TM: It's Wednesday.
RR: Yeah - I'm going Sunday.

Not the most rivating conversation, I know - but that is about how my mind is working lately. If it's not a problem I can focus on and deal with I don't have a clue what's going on. I NEVER know what day of the week it is anymore. The reason? Every day is exactly the same. The only reason I know I'll get to see the SuperBowl is because my friends will call and remind me to come over. Otherwise......I'd flippin' work right through it.

I'm exhausted. I've got so many stores to hit, so many reports to finish and so much work to do on my presentation.....that's right. I have a presentation on my "Game Plan" for next year that I have to give to my team next week. AND in the middle of roll-out we are going to be out of pocket for 3 days. 3 days. THREE DAYS. That means 12 hour days before and after.

The bright light that I'm seeing? Yeah - it's the fact that my "Family" is coming to visit. They'll be here soon. They don't give a rats ass about mattresses, as long as they have one to sleep on while they are here. They don't care about foam or coil count. We're just going to laugh and talk and spend time together. It's as close to heaven as I can imagine right now.

Meanwhile, I gotta get running.......shit, what day is it? Where am I supposed to be today?

Tammi, where are you? You were supposed to be HERE today, and you were over THERE. Over THERE was for tomorrow, not today, while over HERE is for today. But since you missed the appointment HERE today, you can not go THERE tomorrow, (since you're THERE today), but instead can come over HERE tomorrow. Ok?

What IS the coil count on those mattresses? :-)

HA! You just wait.......I'll give you the whole presentation if you don't watch out. Afterall, I'm gonna need to prepare for my big roll out meeting that weekend. ;-)

Like back in the day when kids would "perform" for the family. Yeah, that might work!!
