Just brutal

Itís only Tuesday and Iím spent.

Had my Toronto office crew in for some meetings.

Tomorrow will be the third day in a row Iíll need to shower before 7AM.

Had to wear jeans yesterday and came very close to actually putting on underwear.

Thankfully today I was able to wear my pajamas that look like work out clothes to the office.

Tomorrow will be the same attire and will be leaving the office by 3.

Definitely going to work from the home office Thursday and Friday so things are looking up.

Itís a struggle.

Thanks for letting me vent.

You wear PJ's to the office?? Really? As for showers in the am, that's a good thing, right? AND, are you blaming Canada for this? That can't be right.

Dang Canadians! Requiring underwear AND showers? And to be fully clothed?

Wait! Does this mean your best work is nude? And on Pelican!?!

I know the feeling. I kiss my wife before I head off to work every morning. My commute into work this morning was brutal.

Both dogs were in the hall and I had to step around them on my 18 step commute down the hall. I shut my computer down last night instead of just putting it to sleep so I had to wait a almost 45 seconds more for it to load up Windows. I hope the entire day is not like this.

I shower every day, twice a day in summer.

Just not at such an ungodly hour. Something more civilized like 9ish.

Underwear is not required, I only contemplated it as I no longer wear it but when wearing jeans you sometimes are forced to.

Underwear does help the trouser snake from getting put in a choke hold when it decides to wander if you get my drift.

It's all about comfort.

Be careful tho, don't have a blowout, you have no backup.

Recipe for a shart is office deli platter food + overexertion. Remember that.

My business partner works from his house and I work from mine. Last summer on a Friday night his girlfriend came over. They were going to go out to dinner and she was all dressed up. My business partner was still in his jammies, and had not showered. He had to take a shower and get dressed at 5:30 PM to go out and eat.

Ah, it sounds like me. My morning commute was horrendous.

Slow, nearly had three collisions

I left my bedroom to walk down the hall to the home office and my dog was walking so slowly in front of me, then the cat comes the other way. Not a thought in his head, heading straight for me. Honestly, seconds to spare, I swerved left. Then I could hear the coffee machine and lost concentration for a moment and the other dog came out of a T-intersection that I guess could be refered to as the doorway of the second bedroom. Didn't even look...

Funny stuff. I recently started going to an office a few days a week for the first time in years. I need to buy clothes.
