I didn’t do what I wanted to do……

Today was not my day!


I have had every Tuesday off for the last year. I have a set day off from work, this is the day I write. I usually will write up to seven post on Tuesdays. This ensures that I can post everyday, and make sure that I am planning for the next week. I never have issues coming up with ideas, and there is never anyone home so I can write freely for a whole six-hours. With it taking me 30-minutes to write a post, you think it should be easy to write enough post to blog everyday of the week, including Saturday. But today wasn’t my day!

It was suppose to be my day off, which always starts at 6 a.m. This is when I take my wife to work, in case I need the car, then I come back home and listen to music until 8. At 8 a.m. I will begin to write the surplus of blogs. It is so refreshing to get a day to write, and to think about my long future. It is very important to get that day, or things began to get a little cluttery and I will end up getting overwhelmed with all the work that needs to be done.

I started the day off by getting pulled over by Chatham’s best. He was super nice, and told me that it was going to be a warning. He went back to his truck and spent a good twenty-minutes writing the warning for a blown headlight(that was an easy fix). I took a few funny pictures while waiting, then when he came back to the car, I tried to crack a joke. I was trying to tell him that I think it was a shortage, he didn’t find it funny. I rolled up my window as he walked away, thanking God that I escaped, yet another ticket. After the warning, I walked into my wife’s work. I gave her the folder with her work stuff in it.

Now I could have just went home, but something wanted me to stay there, so I did. I sat in the booth and told myself it would only be for one hour. I got on my phone and checked my social media, which is a every morning thing. I post late at night, so I have to catch up the next morning. I responded to a few comments on Facebook, of a post about the election, then I put my music on. I planned on sleeping for that hour, and then going home and being wide awake to write, so that’s what I did.
I slept until about 6:45 a.m., when I got up I looked outside, the sun still wasn’t up. I knew that if I went home now, I wouldn’t have the motivation to keep myself up, so I told myself 15-more-minutes. I laid my head back down and fell back to sleep. The lights of my wives work woke me up. I made the plan to leave, until she came out to the lobby. She asked me nicely to stay, in order for her to run to the bank. I was happy to do so, it was just another hour. I sat back down and surfed the web, looking at new ways to write.

At 8:15 my boss texted me “Are you on your way?” I was confused, as I said before, I was off today. I texted back instantly and asked him what he was talking about. The answer took hours to get to me, but it was only a minute. He told me that I had a shift today, that it was a shift to help me get some missed hours back. I wasn’t close to my house at this point, it would take me at least 45-minutes to get home and to work, but I had to go in. I left as a storm from my job, and got there at 9 a.m. I was there to do truck, and to put it away. I must say, I was tired. I usually don’t stay up late on Mondays, in order to make sure that I am well-rested to write, but things came up last night, and I ended up staying awake until late. I was drained for work, and didn’t think I could finish work. That wasn’t the worse part, I knew that with this shift, I was going to lose much needed time, blogging. I would need to write each post the night of now, and plan as I go. Luckily I did some planning last week for it, or I would be a lost puppy looking for his owner.

I got off at 1 p.m. After I got off from work, I got my wife from her work. We got something to eat, then went to grocery shop. We needed some healthy food, in order to stay in shape during our workouts. When we got done with the grocery shopping, she brought up the idea of walking in the park. I loved the idea, we needed the fresh air anyway, I would just write my blog a hour later tonight, I wasn’t worried.

We went to the park after putting up the food that we bought. That took time since we were portioning everything out, in order to save money and eat healthy. With the time already pressing 6:30 P.M. I insisted we hurry to the park. She agreed and got in her mothers car, since she wanted to go also, and we left. We got to the park and started to walk. I could tell that it was spring with all the gnats that swarmed us, it was very unpleasant, and a great reminder to why I stay inside. So we began to walk, when a guy came up to us and told us that there was a tornado coming towards Springfield. We werent to worried, but we also didn’t want to get wet from the rain, so we headed back to the car.

We got home from the park, and it began to rain. Ariel and I went inside and sat on the couch, we had movies to watch, but with the lighting we decided against that idea. We would rather just sit there in our own company. But then as we laid back and relaxed, the sirens went off, indicating that they spotted a tornado. I acted fast, moving our beat-up car into a close-by parking garage. When I got back, we had our family (from upstairs) in our living room. We share a basement, so this was actually better, this way we know everyone is okay.

The storm passed us though, which meant that time was wasted. I could have been writing my blog, but I didn’t want to start it, then have to leave mid sentence. I wouldn’t be able to focus anyways, not with ten people in my living room. I had to push my blog back until the storm fully passed. Which happened about thirty-minutes later. By this time it is 9 p.m. This is usually my bedtime, but I knew that I wouldn’t be able to sleep without talking to you guys.

It really strikes me down when I things don’t go as plan! I had this whole day planned, but it seemed that everything and everyone wanted to come in the way. I am blessed to have everyone and everything that came in the way, but it would’ve been nice to have my day off. I want to get things ahead of schedule, which can’t happen with days like these. But that is a part of being an adult, not everything will go as plan. You just have to accept that and move on, and hope the next day is better. That is what I will do, I will chose to be happy that things came up, and will write when I can. I haven’t been writing everyday, maybe this is God saying I need to write daily. That is the only way to get better, which is why I write!
