Oh, Monday.

Some Mondays sure do live up to their reputation.

I had made my dentist appointment for 10 am on purpose. I like to take my time waking up in the morning and knew that in December that mid-morning would allow me to make stops on the way to and from the office. Trying to multi-task during the holidays--I should have known better.

I left the house early so I could drop by a store to grab a gift card. When I got there I slipped into the parking space right in front and made a quick call to HD. He didn't answer and then I realized that the store wasn't even open. OK. That's no problem. I can come back after the dentist, right?

When I got to the dentist's office, early, the office wasn't even open yet. Staff meeting. It was only a few minutes until they opened. No problem! They got me in right away and I got started with the hygenist but before we had made actual progress we had to evacuate the office. Gas leak! Rather than wait for an unknown amount of time, (they were estimating 2+ hours,) I left to run the rest of my errands. I couldn't even get the toothbrush heads that we needed.

I hit Costco for a couple of things: razors and an item for a friend. I thought of a couple of other things while I was in the store, and went to the personal care section to grab the razors. Which weren't there. Our Costco now only carries 2 types of men's razors, neither of which were HD's preferred brand. Of course. A text to HD solved the problem and off I went to my next stop.

Up the road at Lowe's I needed 2 things: specialty light bulbs and keys cut. I was helped by the most helpful person that I've ever encountered in that store with the light bulbs. Seriously, the nicest guy. He even directed me to where I needed to go for the keys. So I get to the key cutting kiosk..... and wait. And walk out into the main aisle to find someone to help me. And wait. And look for someone. And wait. After 5+ minutes of, literally no one coming by the key booth, I left. (This is a common problem at this store. The last time I was there, almost 2 years ago, I was told by a sales person that I was stupid. No, I'm not kidding.)

So I grabbed lunch on the way home, and I'll try again this afternoon. Hopefully Monday is done being a brat, because I'm totally done with dealing with it.
